Reply To: Newly Diagnosed and Multiple Chronic Illnesses

Hi, I have nothing new diagnosed other than asthma*. Right around the time I started having the numbness/tingling of GBS (way before diagnosis), I started having digestion problems and skin allergies. (I say asthma like it’s an afterthought, not a big deal! Barely 2 weeks ago, I had a severe reaction to peanut oil used in a food sample at the grocery store. I hadn’t brought my inhaler with, but the coffee shop next door gave me a cup of ice to help…) Since diagnosis, I was put on an antidepressant that has made me overweight. Cancer in menopausal women runs in my family, so I am trying to get as healthy as I can before I get there. Have always had insomnia. *Oops…borderline high blood pressure is new also. It was pretty high for a while, but is getting better with some exercise and no potato chips…and trying to relax.
I hope this helps in any way.
