I have had a terrible 3 years and desperately seeking some answers as to what happened to me and wondered if you could help.
3 years ago I was having some stomach pain and pain in my gallbladder region. I had heaps of tests i.e. ultrasounds, MRI's, blood tests, endoscopy, colonoscopy, etc. and nothing was found. Finally it was found that I had a parasite. I did a course of antibiotics but this didn't clear it so I needed to do a triple therapy of antibiotics and finally I cleared it. I didn't really feel that much better but thought it would take time. At this time my sleep had gotten worse as well. I went overseas to a conference and when I returned I felt really sick and developed complete insomnia. That began the next horrible 2 years of terrible insomnia which led me to finally resorting to some sleeping medication which gave me terrible anxiety and depression for which they wanted to give me more medications. Finally I was so sick I did some research and found out how horrible these drugs are and realised they were making me sick. The withdrawal process was and still is horrible and I am left with complete insomnia, body aches and pains, terrible digestion pains and gas, brain fog as well as many other symptoms. All along I have wondered if it is a hormone issue but the doctors tested my hormones and said everything was fine.
I desperately need to sleep as I know I cant heal until my body can sleep. I am wondering if progesterone cream might help me and how I would use it?
Any help or advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
