Quick history on me:
Depo Provera gave me cystic acne. Literally a week after getting the shot I experienced my first cysts, along with a few cysts on my scalp that have never gone away. I also started urinating more frequently- this problem has become more and more severe as the years have gone by. I now urinate at least every 30 minutes- sometimes every 15 or more. I'm always thirsty and can drink up to 4 gallons of water a day.
A few years ago I tried Spiro and experienced clear skin for the first time in years, but it exacebated my thirst/urination problem and landed me in the hospital with an electrolyte imbalance, even at a very low dosage. So that drug is out for me, although it did make me suspect excess aldosterone is my problem.
I've been reading up about aldosterone and its relation to the kidneys- it stimulates them to take in more sodium while releasing excess potassium. I have a new doctor now and am hoping he will be open to listening to my concerns (my last one didn't want to hear my research and preferred to run the same tests over and over again.)
I would be interested to hear if any of you have similar problems.
