No never been diagnosed or treated for SAD just was researching and noticed that the times were about the same as mine. Also, I forgot to mention that I get disoriented as well during this time of year. I.E. walking into a room and forget what I went into the room for.
Not sure if this could possibly cause the lower back discomfort and leg tingling or if it would cause spasming in my uterus. From what I was reading, SAD looks like a condition that makes you depressed or moody. I don't believe that I display this in the winter months. I also do not gain weight or crave certain foods.
The neurologist I was seeing suggested Lupus or a tissue disease from my blood tests. He is not a specialist on the matter so he sent me to a Rhuemetologist. That went nowhere fast. There are many types of Lupus so it would be hard to diagnose which one so I could start prevention. It also seems that many dr's may diagnose Lupus because there are so many symptoms that could pertain to any of the certain types of Lupus or they just really don't know. If it could be Lupus, who do I see and how do I go about getting a diffinitive answer? Do we do more extensive blood tests?
I wish there were an easier answer and that I could get onto not having any symptoms of what ever it is I am dealing with. Mainly I was hoping to start some prevention if I could get an idea of what is going on before the winter months hit. It may have nothing with the time of year at all but this is always when I start having problems.
I have not seen the neurologist since my blood test a few years back as he said this was not his specialty so he sent me back to reg. dr. which has done nothing on the matter.
I was hoping for a better answer and I do appreciate so much your time. I will go ahead and pay the $15.00 as this was what I was paying each time I saw any Dr or had any tests done. And you certainly deserve it. Is it possible though to have another expert take a look and maybe get a different perspective?
Have a great night.
