What was it like before you came to see us?
I had shingles in 2007; I have not felt well since; very sluggish and tired. Then in 2013, for several months I was overwhelmingly tired, had huge lumps on my neck and had a perpetual sore throat. Dr.’s told me I had depression. Finally, one doctor did lab work and it came back positive for the Epstein-Barr virus. Since then I have been horrifyingly tired, with a plugged ear and sore throat. In September of 2014 I developed dizziness, shortness of breath, hot flashes, chills, fainting spells, blurred vision, heartburn, poor digestion, racing heart, more fatigue than ever, nausea, an extreme hyper-startle response and my whole body felt like it was getting a constant electrical shock. This went on day and night for a long time. I had seen several specialists and all the testing came back negative. Some doctors believed I had a mystery medical issue but most told me I had anxiety. After being out of work for two months due to this illness, I used all of my sick and vacations days, so I had to go back to work. My Primary told me that going to work would be good for me as it would give me something to think about other than my health issues. I went back to work; I was not getting much better; I could not even drive. My sister (who see’s Aaron’s sister for NRT in Ithaca, with spectacular results) begged me to see Aaron. I did so out of desperation, and what a life changer it has been!
