Hi, mybody Thank you for taking time to give me a reply. I will most certainly ask my doctors of this and whether or not tests have ruled this out. I wish I could find an MD who practice Holistic Health or one who looks at the whole body. I look back at my health history and when I was in my mid 30's, my ovaries just died eventually leading to early hysterectomy and maybe less than 10 yrs. later my gallbladder died and had it removed just in time; surgeon and pathology confirm it had begun to turn gangreen. Now 10 years later all this is happening. Is this just coincidence or is there more to it all? I will not stop looking for answers and a doctor or group of doctors who will be able to assure me that the correct diagnosis has been made and the medications prescribed are what I need. I can't help but wonder if taking Plaquenil and Methotrexate could harm my body if I really don't need them. Again, thank you for taking the time to share an idea as you did. Hope you have a blessed day!View Thread
