To provide an overview of my story, I will begin with physical symptoms. Since I was a boy, I have had significant environmental allergies. I also developed a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis as a teenager (this is a condition where food gets stuck in your throat while eating--apparently, allergy related). The eosinophilic esophagitis has vastly improved on a gluten/dairy free diet that I started about three years ago. My allergy symptoms were pretty typical but, as I entered college, they also included dizziness and occasional diarrhea. Along with these symptoms came anxiety. My major health concerns really emerged in my 40s (I am now 52). About nine years ago, I started to develop neurological symptoms: left temple ache (extending into the left jaw at times), left neck pain, pain/itching on the left side of my back, right leg weakness and right foot neuropathy. I also experienced fatigue and muscle tightness in my legs. A huge amount of anxiety came with these symptoms. Over the last several years, I have seen three neurologists, two rheumatologists, one integrative health doctor, two allergists, as well as a variety of other health care professionals, including chiropractors and homeopathic practitioners. All tests including MRIs and nerve tests came back normal (with the exception of allergy tests and I am now getting allergy shots). Emotionally, I have encountered a variety of challenges in my life. My dad was an alcoholic, my mom struggled with anxiety, my sister has mental health issues which became evident in her early 20s, I was a closeted gay man until I came out at the age of 35 and I currently feel somewhat disconnected from a support system (I do not have a partner and my surviving family members cannot provide the emotional support I would like). I read "The Mindbody Prescription" two weeks ago. The symptoms described in the book sounded so familiar to me. In addition the personality types sound familiar as well. It was amazing to read a book that made so much sense to me regarding my physical/emotional experiences. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts/insights regarding my experiences.
