Thanks Dr Bets :-)

Thanks very much on your advice for the test. Thanks for your interest in seeing me get better! I really appreciate it!! Something very intresting is that he prescribed vitamin c for my connective tissue (he told me that he have Marfan Syndrome and that he also take vitamin C for his connective tissue). I am taking 500mg morning and evening (from 13th) and I actually noticed the last week and a half that my shoulders dont feel so unstable anymore! It seems to be really working :-) Also he prescribed Valoid for the dizzyness/vertigo and that took about a week and now that is also gone. The first thing I noticed was last week when I flew down to Cape Town, it was a very bumpy flight and I always get vertigo and nausea after a flight like that. This time I felt 100%. So that is definately also working for me (I take one valiod in the morning and one in the evening). So I am definately making progress :-) He also said that my bones are getting better (the rickets is not as bad as when he last saw me), but the spasms is still very bad. Thanks Dr Bets!
