LisaColumbus Posted October 12, 2004 Report Share Posted October 12, 2004 Hi all,I've been lurking for awhile and decided to take the leap and join you.My name is Lisa, I am from Columbus, Ohio, 37 years old and a mom of 3.I am a patient of Dr Grubb, as is my sister, 2 cousins and a nephew. I became ill suddenly in January 2003. It was pretty much like running into a brick wall. I went from being a go-go-go person to being unable to crawl to the bathroom.After bouncing around from doctor to doctor and then to cardiologist to cardiologist, I was eventually dx'd with NCS, POTS and CFS. The cardiologist originally prescribed florinef, atenolol, potassium, and a variety of SRI's. I am extremely sensitive to meds and wound up in the hospital barely able to speak, unable to write my name etc. I was finally able to get in to see Dr Grubb in Oct of 2003. He changed the meds to Adderall, Florinef and Potassium. What a miraculous combination that was! I was able to get off disability and back to work for six months or so. But eventually those meds quit working. So now I am struggling to work 3 days a week and am basically in bed the rest of the time. I'm getting really frustrated and just want my life back. My next appointment with Dr Grubb isn't until January and I can't find a doctor in the Columbus area that has a clue about how to treat any of this stuff. So that's my story, I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and learn from you as well.Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
