Sick of Being Sick

I have been really sick for the last few weeks. It is getting wore by the day, seem like it is all Endo related. I have back and abdominal pain and walking is difficult. My digestive system has gone crazy, it hurts when I eat and hurts when I don't eat. I have foggy unbearable headaches and I can't concentrate on anything. I am irritable at all times. I don't know what else to do, I have been good with my diet with no sugar, no gluten & minimal red meat. Blood work from my yearly check up looks good with the exception of low vitamin D. I truly believe that I have Thyroid issues, I am constantly fatigued and it is wearing me down. I am at a point where if this keeps going on I will have to stop working for a couple of month.

I have made an appointment with an Endocrinologist that I saw a few years ago. He had me monitor my glucose level on a daily bases but I didn't go back for a follow up since levels were fine. I am bad at following anything through. With this appointment and the one with the Nap.ro OBGYN I hope I can get some relief.

Sorry to be all down and under but can't help it :(

I am back. This couple of months have been very difficult. The grief of losing a loved one is too much. The "Why" questions, the guilt, the sadness, despair, hope & confusion. When death hits it seem new every single time. But for the living, life has to go on and I am taking each day at a time. Some days are good and I remember the good times and laughter shared and some days are filled with nothing but despair & sadness.

On the Endo front I will be seeing a Nap.rotec.hnology Dr. I need something. The endo pain in back full force. I can barely walk at times. I have been going for Acupuncture every week but I don't see any significant relief from the pain.
I have stopped the progesterone cream a couple of month ago, besides raising my post ovulatory temp I didn't see any benefit. At some point I actually thought it was giving me headaches. So I have decided to try Napro. There will be lots of blood tests, charting & surgery to come in the few month.

I am praying that I don't lose it and throw in the towel, I seem to get nothing done when this pain is digging inside me.
