Are you living with symptoms that are hard to diagnose? Has your doctor not found any reason for your physical symptoms? Have been told, it's all in your head or you are faking it? Then you may have what is now being called a ‘functional disorder’. The first thing you need to know is that, because the nature of functional disorders is different to usual physical conditions, you need to look for treatment in a different place: DIFFERENT CAUSE - DIFFERENT TYPE OF ILLNESS - DIFFERENT SOLUTION. Dr Gillian Deakin has been a physician for more than 40 years and in her time in family practice she has seen many patients with hard to diagnose symptoms. In ‘What the Hell is Wrong with Me?’ Gillian discusses the seven BODY STRESS SYSTEMS and how they have been disrupted, leading to an array of symptoms including, but certainly not limited to: * Breathing difficulties, shortness of breath * Accelerated heart rate * Feelings of unreality, brain fog, dizziness, full loss of consciousness, light-headedness * Visual problems * Tense muscles, cramps, twitches, fleeting pains * Gut disturbances, nausea, abdominal distress, or pain. And these are just a few of the possible symptoms people with functional disorders may experience. ONE IN THREE patients seeing their doctor has a functional condition, however, there are no guidelines on how to diagnose, let alone treat these conditions. It is because all your tests are normal, that it is challenging to diagnose you and because your condition is unique to you, it doesn’t fit any disease model and therefore no simple treatment can be prescribed. But there is hope. ‘What the Hell is Wrong with Me?’ will change how you think about your symptoms and how you go about recovering. As you read through the book, you will come to understand how your condition arose, (and it’s not your fault!) and what you need to do to recover. Gillian’s tried and tested SIX STEPS TO RECOVERY method has helped thousands of people like you restore their health and it is her sincere wish that you can again enjoy full health and well-being.
