Post: VCS - why doubt it?
Posted by Sally on 6/28/03
I have not had a VCS test in years. I want everyone who
reads this post to know the VCS test was not used
to "diagnose" me so much as it was to verify the
neurological impact of my illness(es). My first test WAS
performed in FF's home. My first test was then faxed to
Dr. Shoemaker. My first prescription of cholestyramine was
given to me by a doctor who had seen me over the course of
several years. She was the one who had to prescribe all of
the pain medicines, anti-depressants, muscle relaxers, anti-
inflammatory, sleep aids, EEGs, blood tests, nerve biopsys,
physical therapy..etc etc too. She was as frustrated with
my inablilities to perform as a normal person as I was.
She was astounded at the results I got from Dr. Richie
Shoemaker's recommended treatment of cholestyramine. She
still thinks it is "too weird". Although I have not seen
her in 5 years as a patient. I have not had to. I am ALIVE
again. And as my daughter said to Dr. Shoemaker,on the
telephone, Mommy is back.
