The following is a case study from Galaxy Diagnostics:
Hans (age 20) – Hypotension
Hans, a college student in Minnesota, was an active child growing up. He enjoyed hiking, biking, skiing and had pet dogs. He enjoyed a lively social life and was an honor-roll student. In April 2006, the year before high school, Hans began displaying what appeared to be allergies when he broke out in hives and had itchy eyes. However, an allergist was not able to explain the origin of the problem.
These symptoms quickly progressed with the development of insomnia and headaches, followed by light sensitivity and short-term memory loss. His parents were very concerned and consulted numerous physicians, including a neurologist, ophthalmologist, and infectious disease doctor. None of these physicians was able to offer a specific diagnosis, instead only treating symptoms.
After two years, Hans’ condition worsened. His energy level was so low he was unable to attend high school instead relied on private tutors and home schooling. Because he was unable to take part in the things he had enjoyed growing up, Hans began to develop anxiety and signs of depression.
Hans had been tested for seemingly everything. He was diagnosed with hypotension and put on medication for his blood pressure, but the only treatment offering significant relief for his symptoms was acupuncture.
Hans found his way to Dr. Mozayeni and started on a long-term antibiotic regimen. At age 20, Hans now enjoys the highest quality of life he has experienced since middle school. He is able to drive and attends college classes. He is able to catch up on the social life he missed out on as a teenager. His energy level, insomnia, headaches, and light sensitivity can still be problematic, but as he continues treatment, he has great optimism.
