Hi Dr. Shoman
Thank you for your quick reply. I mistakenly checked the box which said I want to join with a monthly payment of $15. This is a problem because I only wanted an answer to the one question and I have no health issues. Can you give me a number to phone so I can cancel this error on my part? Better yet, can you cancel it?
I would much appreciate a response.

I wish you well and it's good to know you are there to answer when needed.

I feel that the prescribed drugs that I m taken are now causing the same symptoms. I know that the medical industry doesn t recognize mercury toxicity but my brother died of ALS. I began to get the same symptoms in 2006 after years of looking and with no results I had decided to get my amalgams removed . But before I did I took a supplement that had o lot of cilantro in it . I got better. But the symptoms came back. Now after quite some time I had decided to get a split root canal done in 2012. Then I got real sick again. Anyway I was doing fine last summer but I had been on gabapentin and tramadol for some time and now I think that they are causing very bad symptoms while I m trying to quit taking them. Very tired complete exhaustion pain in my hands and feet and in the small of my back. lack of coordination irritability sweating. and more. I am now doing less than prescribed of 200-300mg of gabapentin and tramadol of 50-150mg a day. Yesterday I took just one of each but feel asleep for hours no I feel disoriented and confused. I don t know which way to turn. It s causing great trouble to my mom who is now 78 and doesn t understand any of this. I have gone through hell and back and am a having bad thoughts I stay in my room and am very scared now. Very week . destitute please help
