I had been feeling "not well" for years but I couldn't quite describe it. The "not well" feelings seemed to make me sound like if I spoke up it would seem that I was a complainer. Occasionally, I would go to my Primary Care doctor, she would look so concerned but she was never able to find anything wrong with me per her tests. So she would say I was depressed. I am not! Then I would try my chiropractor, who would say that my adrenals were worn out from being a busy mom.
Well, time went on, my headaches, digestive issues, food intolerances, fatigue, brain fog, rashes, and joint pains continued. There were probably more issues but the pain from the headaches in combination with the memory loss makes it hard to remember, and I am only 42. I felt like I had been dismissed by doctors but this didn't surprise me because this is the way it had always been.
I kept praying for help, for direction, for answers, and then searching the internet. I saw a chart on Pinterest that described me perfectly. It was about Mast Cell Activation. I followed the link and it led me to Dr. Hubbard. I knew by this point that I was intolerant to histamines and salicylates and that I didn't want to see another doctor who didn't know what those were. I phoned the office and asked if the doctor knew about them? When I was told that she did I decided to give her a try.
That was 8 months ago and I am so glad that I did. I remember feeling so nervous about this appointment like it was my las thope. Dr. Hubbard listened and then began to ask her questions. These questionswere amazing. It was like she knew me and what I had been going through. My favorite part is when she asked if doctors had told me I was depressed. Then, she went on to inform me that I was not, they just couldn't figure me out. She had the blood tests run, from there I learned that I have MCAS and CIRS. We never even knew that we had hidden mold in our house in three rooms. I am so thankful to God for leading me to Dr. Hubbard. Now not only am I going to feel better in life but also my entire family can too. My husband and four kids are feeling better every day without the mold.
I would and have recommended Dr. Hubbard to people who seem interested in getting to the root of their problems. I especially like how she never makes me feel dumb or inadequate even though she is very knowledgeable. I also like how she encourages me to keep learning about my condition directing me to various internet sites and articles. Now I feel like I can live a wonderful life even with MCAS. If you are wondering if she is the doctor for you, check out her website and then give her a try.
