well thats what confused me, and why i stopped thinking it was my eyes until recently. many months ago (back when i thought i had a form of autism...)i went to go get contacts, and had to get an exam cause i havne't been there in like 5 years. so they basically just checked vision and for glaucoma, and that's it. but it turns out there's another eye doctor, an ophtomologist. i have never heard of this kind, they study eye diseases. which means im gonna be given another label and told it'll all work out. but this one at LEAST makes more sense than say mercury in your fillings or celiac disease, not to say they aren't real, it just makes a lot more sense to me.


Yeah- when you go to get glasses, you see an optometrist. An opthamologist is a specialist in diseases of the eye.

Your problems could be a combination of many things- migraines, thyroid, mercury, anxiety. Bodies are very very complex systems. I have more than one issue- I have celiac but also Lyme, four co-infections, thyroid and depression. Are they all related? Did ONE thing cause all of them? Who knows. I'm just doing what I can to take care of what I can. Staying gluten-free (which I KNOW saved me- I was wasting away!). Getting treatment for Lyme, depression and my thyroid.

It's like what came first- the chicken or the egg? Did my Lyme trigger my celiac? Did you have anxiety as a separate disorder or did something else cause it?

The most important thing you can do is take care of yourself- diet, see the doctors that can treat your symptoms (anxiety, visual problems, etc) while you peel away the layers of the onion. You may never find ONE thing that caused ALL your problems. But you can get BETTER and be happy and calm.

Not annoyed at all :D

I know how you feel- it's nice when you figure out a problem and it stinks when you just have to treat symptoms. For me, going gluten-free was figuring out one of the problems. I had lost over 60 pounds! I think it saved my butt and gave me 2+ more years of my body being able to deal with Lyme (and finish my PhD!).

Of course, I was REALLY disappointed that it wasn't the answer to all my problems but at least it got me to the next step.

You're young, you're strong (even if you don't think so) and if you keep searching, you'll find your answers. Be well.

Mr. Moore you are not annoying, we sympathize with you because we too have felt lost and alone and scared. :)

Perhaps I have said this to you before, please excuse me if I have, there are so many things we cannot control but we can control what we put into our bodies and taking responsibility for that is a big step towards getting well.

We have been taught, brain washed really, that our bodies are just some kind of machine we can put fuel in and they will keep going, this is not true. We have also been taught, brain washed ..., to believe that there are pills that can cure us. This is not true although there may be some medication that is needed, most medication simply suppresses our ability to know that we are still ill. One analogy I have read is it's like seeing the red light going in your car, taking it to the mechanic and having them cut the wire so it doesn't blink anymore.

Our bodies are a gift, please take care of yours. :)

I want to reiterate what many have already said.

Mercury doesn't work alone and more likely than not you are going to continue to have some health problems. You don't know what tipped what and when. I would definately recommend a strict gluten free diet for at least a year, if not two to see if that makes a difference. Soy has caused many problems as well. The best thing you can start for your health is changing your diet. A gluten free, low grain (or no grain), low sugar natural foods diet will do a lot for you if you give it time. There are numerous problems associated with gluten alone. Grains can affect the brain in a negative way.

You ask why you have developed problems and other people have not. Not everyone is exposed to the same toxins; airborne, water, foods (from pesticides etc). Not everyone has the same genetic makeup. The body is complex and individuals are complex.

I have a lot of amalgams as does my mother. She doesn't have any health problems, I do. Mine are not severe and the gluten free diet has helped. I do plan on getting my teeth done at some point, when I am able.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

:o When you change your diet! Sorry Mr. Moore, I couldn't resist. :)

I am very glad to know there is no sign of glaucoma or eye problems.

Have you been reading other posts here? I have thought of you several times, there was one post about migraines that really reminded me of you.

I am really wondering why you resist the idea that changing your diet could help you?

Please take ten minutes and watch this video. :)

More information is not a bad thing. :)

Sorry you are feeling so frustrated, punching someone is a very bad idea, even saying you want to punch someone is not a great idea. :) What about a long walk to work off some of that energy?

Glad you got a referral to the eye doctor. I am also really glad that you are going to be evaluated by the neuro. Don't get mad at your doctors and do tell your neuro about not just the vision stuff but also any other symptoms you may have. They may very well all be related. You may even find the neuro refers you to a GI doctor, don't be surprised if that happens.
