A few months ago I went to the physicians to find out if I had breast cancer. It turned out that I had a cyst, assumed due to excessive caffeine intake (the only caffeine I use really is green tea, daily), but was told that my lymph nodes were enlarged everywhere (very visible), plus I had my blood checked to see what my thyroid levels were (was told that my results were "unremarkable") because I was suffering from symptoms of hyperthyroidism (runs in my family, and was personally diagnosed a few years ago after the birth of my Child).
I just got over another case of bronchitis (stopped smoking back in '08 after about a decade of on/off half a pack of Marlboro's a day) a few days ago after my first diagnosis in April of this year (I usually suffer from this yearly, as my Mother did and she never smoked a day in her life) and had been Rx'd Azithromycin Tabs, USP @ 250mg (6 tabs) and I my bronchitis issues have mainly subsided, but I'm still suffering from very bad cysts.
I eat "Healthy" for the most part (colored veggies/fruits daily with lean meats & nuts) but I haven't been exercising as much as I used to (I have a Child and school isn't in session for them right now so I haven't been able to find the time to exercise) but have been doing yoga and try to meditate when I can (my life right now is very stressful, and maybe perhaps this is where my cysts are coming from?).
I've used antibiotics for my acne in the past (Amoxicillin) @ 500mg 2x/day, but a person can only take antibiotics for so long before they become ineffective. Luckily, my acne did clear for some time and my skin was beautiful.
Now, I have scars all over the place, and my face feels sore and I've started using Retin-A Micro and Hydroquinone 4% for the scars recently after trying out the "new" Proactiv Solution 30-day trial with the purchase of their fade cream of 2% Hydroquinone. I also bought Neutrogena's original bar of soap along with Cetaphil's soap and CeraVe's skin moisturizer.
I did give some time for each product to "work" before moving on to the next (a week apart from each other) but I know I went too crazy, obsessing over trying to clear this crap away!
I'm going to ask about birth control pills as well.
Has anyone found success with similar issues?
My next derm appointment is in a few days, so I Pray that something can finally be done.
Thanks for reading!
