SON OF A NUTCRACKER!!

Well, I just got off the phone with the (nice) nurse at Dr. K’s office, and she had my delayed lab results from CD3.

Guess what??!

There’s nothing freaking wrong with me.

Nothing.

All results were normal within lab ranges.

I do not seem to have skewed levels pointing toward Nonclassical Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, and my hormone levels, body type, and ultrasounds are not consistent with PCOS.

I asked lots of questions, including whether the doc would consider DNA karyotyping or immune testing, but I’m feeling rather deflated.

It’s not that I want something to be wrong with me, but I do want there to be a reason for my infertility.

I’m so sick of going ’round and ’round… I just want to have a clear direction in which to move.

.

Le sigh.

.

Back to the drawing board, I guess…

.

Oh… test results are all posted here, if you’re interested in stalking/diagnosing, or if you know a real-life Dr. House.  😉

    I understand. It would be easier if you knew what was wrong.

    Hi, our situations are so similar! They call me the unexplained…
    It’s great that your tests came back all normal! 🙂

      We have very similar stories, I see! I just hate feeling so stuck, as I’m sure you do as well. I’m so sorry for your recent chemical… I know that pain, and I wish it were easier. I hope we can both get some answers soon. XOXO

    Your regular RE will not understand nor order the proper immune testing. You have to go to an RI for that. Don’t waste your time or money asking your RE (unless they have told you they work with an RI such as Braverman). I can point you to a list of “immune friendly” docs, if you’re interested.

    Don’t stop searching and don’t take their word for things.

    I also suggest seeing a naturopath. They have a greater understanding of some of the finer points of the tests (and usually regular docs and RE’s don’t order the *right* ones).

      I was hoping you’d chime in on this. 🙂

      I am feeling pretty desperate these days. Ann Arbor has a great community of hospitals and doctors with the University of Michigan there, and there are many naturopaths as well. It’s not too far from here, so I am thinking that’s my next stop.

      I have seen a list of immune friendly RE’s, too, and I know there are a few in Michigan…

      In other news, I have acupuncture scheduled for Tuesday. I’m hoping that will be my miracle cure. 😛

    I was always normal, normal, normal. My doc even called me boring. I did the karotyping and the immune tests and still nothing. The hubby is just as normal as me. We’re unexplained in the infertility and pregnancy loss areas. It sucks.

    All of my levels looked pretty normal also. There’s a lot that we just don’t know.
