    As my problems all started from a bad uti. And lots of antibiotics after which I believe has caused all my symptoms. I'm going for a private lumbar and head mri tomorrow . I'm scared and not scared if that makes sense. Just wondering if anyone else's problems came on after a uti or antibiotics. Having a white tongue in the morning and then looking up candida in the past scared the shit out of me. Went on diet lost weight back up in weight as I eat what I want sometimes in moderation. But I can't keep living like this .... I want answers tms approach helps along side dnrs not got the DVD set yet. But I can sort of see what it's about. Also EFT tapping helps on bad days ... sorry for rant but I just want answers to this as my wife and daughter do not need this around them seeing me un happy and angry with it all.

    Hi Snowman, can I ask why you’re having a head MRI.

    Hi maris.
    Yes that's fine to ask. I'm having another one to rule out anything that might have been missed after the first one. Some things can be missed to early and I keep having virtigo and brain rush feeling . I feel disconnected with myself just scared .

    i have similar stuff which I think stems from neck issues so had my follow up MRI two days ago. 12 months ago started to feel much much better thru diet change and TMS work and got a nasty UTI with strong antibiotics and the whole symptom array came rushing back. Didn’t put the two together. But it’s food for thought. (And look up DMannis for UTI. Mine was classed as antibiotic resistant so when it came back three weeks later I used the DMannis and it worked with nothing since). Oh and I had the MRI to finally allay ANY fear about physical v psychological. I’ll follow your thread.

    If the MRI comes back with no issues, I would highly recommend the book Hope and Help for Your Nerves by Dr. Claire Weeks. Best of luck to you and don't give up! Healing energy sent your way....

    Hi Snowman,

    Sending you healing vibes and comfort. I can relate as I am going through something similar. My problems came on after an intial UTI and 2 sets of antibiotics. I too have a white tongue. Lots of people have white tongues. Have you tried any natural remedies. The above poster said D-Mannose. Give it a shot esp if your infection was e-coli. It will work!

    Do you still have urinary issues, or are you just worried about them? I too had a pelvic MRI to see if anything structurally was going on with me. So far I haven't heard anything back, so I am assuming everything is a-ok.

    1) Meditate if you haven't already

    2) Accept that your fear about these symptoms is worse than the symptoms themselves

    3) try to accept your current circumstances, focus on gratitude and all that is good in life.

    4) keep on doing EFT tapping if it is helping.

    I am sorry that you are still having urine issues. It will get better. I know it is hard to have hope but know that this will pass. Or perhaps something else will come up to distract you.
    I will share that I had some little jabs of pain in my pelvic floor yesterday. So today I was worrying about pelvic floor dysfunction instead of my bladder. Anyways try to distract yourself. Thinking of you.
