So before I was told I was homozygous for 1298 I was prescribed Cipro for a kidney infection by a doctor who was not very happy with me. I told her I wanted a certain antibiotic, which had been successful in treating my last kidney infection, but she wrote it for Cipro instead.
I have 3 autoimmune
diseases (Type 1 Diabetes, Hashimoto's, and Celiac) and have since
learned that fluoride is not good for anyone, especially those with
thyroid issues. I took the Cipro for 3 days and starting having panic
attacks. I would struggle to sleep at night, waking up sweating and
with thoughts of doom preventing me from falling back asleep. I would
shake horribly and cry, needing my husband to hold me and ground me so I
could rest easy. I thought I was having a heart attack. I stopped taking it after 3 days and called the
office that prescribed it to me, and talked to a friend who worked there
who could write me a different prescription.
I then went on to find a
naturopathic doctor who could help me recover from the panic attacks.
She prescribed me with L-theanine, boswellia, curcumin, fish oil, Vit D
& K, and several other anti-inflammatory supplements along with a
natural thyroid medication because my levels were all out of whack.
Turns out I was floxed, the term used to describe patients who have been
poisoned by fluoroquinolone antibiotics like Cipro. I now wonder if my
MTHFR gene mutation made this possible, as it seems like it also caused
the childhood vaccines I received to compromise my immune system. I
honestly wouldn't be surprised if they are all linked. Our bodies are
so intricately woven there's really nothing that isn't connected.
