Quick synopsis of my situation...
I have had what I found to be MCS since a head injury in Sept '05. I donated blood, passed out and hit my head, waking up on the floor. A week to the day after, I started to experience symptoms and through much trial, error, and turmoil, my husband and I partially converted our house away from natural gas use, I had to quit my job after 7 months of enduring feeling terrible there post injury. I have found some relief to my digestive issues by avoiding most foods I have tested sensitive to, taking a probiotic every other day, and drinking lots of water.
We are currently about to undertake IVF with a reproductive endocrinologist, we had just started trying to concieve for about 2 months when I hit my head. I am hoping for success as I am 35 and more than ready to be a mother.
After seeing many doctors to try to figure out what was going on (early on) I now take several supplements, which seem to help overall...these include Pantothenic Acid (B5), Riboflavin (B2), CoQ10, Methylcobalamin (B12), MegaFolinic (folic acid), also some for fertility.
I was curious if other MCS sufferers found employment and if so, in what industries? Also, how do you deal with the feelings of isolation and feelings of inadequecy? I always prided myself with my independence and since having to depend so heavily on my husband to financially support us for awhile now, it wears on me greatly.
Thanks to all who took the time to read this, I hope my information helps someone and I welcome all input. Take care.
