Hey there again...glad you are actually on site right now.
I had it it for 4 years. I am 34 years old with 2 kids. I got it when my son was about 18 months old, and I didn't want to take the mini pill anymore. I was so worried about getting an autoimmune disease from it. I told my OB this and she said I wouldn't have anything like that. I should have gone with my gut instincts.
My MS tests came back a little off, but the neuro is not convinced that I have MS. He is going to test me for Lupus too. He wants me to get a second opinion, but again, he said they might just diagnose me on the spot, and it might not even be MS. If it is, it will show up in the next 6 months to a year. My guess, as well as my acupuncturist, is that it is not MS. I trust her more than anyone.
If you can, and your insurance will cover it, acupuncture has been the most helpful therapy in the world! My anxiety attacks have since gone, and the on/off anxiety is so much better. I have slept better too. Not totally thru the night, but I go back to sleep faster if I wake up. It has also helped with any pain I have had. I am going to do a liver/intestinal detox program with her in the next week, and that should help get any toxins out of my body.
Hope to hear from you soon.
