Somavert daily injections

I'm sick and tired of this disease and its meds.  The daily Somavert injections of 10mg has dropped my IGF-1 levels to a dramatic low of 180 but let me tell you I feel TERRIBLE all the time.  I'm nauseated, fatigued, dizzy to mention a few and can not even go for a walk to the corner store without almost passing out and vomiting (literally).  I'm being followed with a new Endo and am in the process of meeting another new doctor to consult on Radio hopefully soon.  I really think that all these years with the meds have had a toll on my body and mind.  I'm still off work (since February) and will continue until all this is sorted out. All I want to do is get back to life with my family and get healthy.

Hey Julie. I'm sorry to hear things aren't going well for you :-( Dealing with the disease by itself is so stressful and causes such fatigue. Dealing with meds, insurance, etc adds more stress and fatigue that we don't need. I hope you find a treatment plan that works. I'm glad at least you're off work. I've actually started working up to about 20 hours per week from home, and I have 3 kids (2 teenagers). It's exhausting. I can't imagine surviving working full time. Good luck.
