Water poisoning and toxins causing illness

User Profile
is there any way I can research the toxins and my/kids medical conditions to find a possible answer as to what the correct diagnosis would be? also who would i report this dr to for being a painpill pusher and not listening to the patient? Is there any local dr's who can and will listen to me and get me into a toxicologist and other specialists to get help? is there any one working with the vets from the water poisoning issue from camp lejuene NC. ?

"List of pre-existing conditions: I had been exposed to high levels of over 70 toxins while in the USMC
List of other diseases, conditions, or injuries and their treatment: I had chest pains- put on heart meds (never checked since) I have been diagnosed with ibs, arthritus, nerve damage in arms; I have a severe curve in my back and told I had several compressed discs, I have had severe headaches since the marines that put me in the er many times, My bowls are screwed up to the point I dont go to the bathroom for weeks and when I do go im in the br for hrs. My vision is blurry at times, i shake uncontrollably at times, I had lost feeling in both my legs and walk with a cane for support,I have problems sleeping where i can sleep for days or be up for months I have memory loss: My dr will not listen to me and has put me on pain killers for everything. i have had suicidal tendencies and was going to theropy, My right arm had a compound fract. that left my arm inoperable for several years, the dr's pinched my radial nerve in the elbow area when they put the bones back together, I have severe athletes foot since being in the corps, I can attribute all these and find paperwork relating to my illness' from my expose of the toxins at the base. My children have severe problems and this is also contributed to the toxins: add adhd tactile defensive learning disabilities, headaches, stomach problems, etc. my daughter has an extra duct from her liver spilling bile into her stomach and causing severe problems.

Current medical status: I have had blood work done many times, I had numerous x-rays, cat scans, ekg, eeg, sleep tests, brain tests, stress tests most of the tests done at the hospital are still there; my "family dr has no clue and wont look at them" so the conclusion is its not been looked at or diagnosed.

Current medical treatment: atenolol 25mg 2x/day for heart/chest pain (dr put me on it in 06 and never checked it once since) mirapex .125mg 1x/day at bedtime pain in legs percocet 325mg 1tab/4x day or as needed (for headaches and any other pain) lopid 600mg 1tab 2x/day tyl/arthritus (over the counter) taken daily for pain in joints numerous acid meds tried listed as follows; prilosec didnt help prevacid didnt help nexium didnt help aciphex helped but discontinued at rx"

ADHD is mainly a genetically conditioned disorder but in 1/5 of cases, brain damage due to physical trauma or toxins exposure can cause ADHD. Toxicological tests can confirm or exclude if some toxins caused ADHD in your children’s case. You can consult a neurologist and toxicologist about this.

About your health problems, IBS, spine curve, radial nerve damage, arthritis and athlete's foot can’t be due to poisoning. Sleepiness and suicidal tendencies, however, can be due to many causes... including poisoning. But we can’t blame poisoning for any symptom if no toxin is detected in your body. If you think that your family doctor is not interested in helping you, you can consult another doctor and ask her/him to verify the reports from the other various diagnostic procedures.
