DONT GO TO KAISER, JUST DONT. IM DYING AND THEY DONT SEEM TO CARE. FOUR YEARS NOW AND NOT ONE ANSWER. ONLY HELP IVE EVER GOTTEN I FOUND FOR MYSELF THROUGH DIET AND CBD OIL. KAISER IS A TERRIBLE SYSTEM AND I WAS BLIND TO IT FOR MANY YEARS. THEN, WHEN I WAS GETTING TOSSED FROM DR TO DR BECAUSE NO ONE COULD FIGURE OUT MY DISABLING CONDITIONS, THEY SENT ME TO DR. C. SHE TOLD ME TO "ACCEPT" HER DIAGNOSES OF "NOTHING" THAT IT WAS STRESS AND LACK OF SLEEP CAUSING MY SEIZURES. WELL, GUESS WHAT, STILL HAPPENING, 1.5 YEARS LATER. THEY SENT ME TO SLEEP SPECIALIST WHERE THEY DID A FULL NIGHT TIME STUDY, VIDEO, SOUND, WIRES EVERYWHERE. I GOT 7% REM SLEEP IN 4 HOURS. SEIZED ALL NIGHT. THE TEST SHOWS IT BUT THEIR FINDINGS "NO SIGNIFIGANT FINDINGS FOR RESTLESS LEG. GUESS WHAT, I DO HAVE THAT BUT THAT WAS NOT THE ISSUE. SO I GO BACK TO SEE DR C FOR HER UNDERSTANDING OF THIS AS SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A MOVEMENT DISORDER SPECIALIST. I ASK HER HOW MUCH REM IS A PERSON SUPPOSED TO GET A NIGHT. SHE SAID, WELL, 40 % ATLEAST. OK?! SO? HER ANSWER, GO SEE THE DR WHO READ THE STUDY WHICH WAS DONE THROUGH A THIRD PARTY AND NOT PART OF KAISER. SO I GO SEE THE DEPT DR OR WAS SUPPOSED TO FOR KAISERS SLEEP DEPT WHO WAS SUPP TO READ THE REPORT AND GIVE ME FURTHER INSTRUCTION. INSTEAD THEY HAVE ME SEE A NURSE PRACTICIONER WHO WANTED TO SIGN ME UP FOR A FREAKING DIET CLASS. I MYSELF AM THE ONE WHO DISCOVERED, ALL ON MY OWN, THANK YOU FOR NOTHING , THAT GLUTEN FREE DIET HELPED MY RHUEMATOID ARTHRITIS WHICH ALSO REMAINS UNDIAGNOSED AS POLY ARTHRITIS. I ASKED BOTH MY PRIMARY AND RHUEMATOLOGIST WHY A GLUTEN FREE DIET ISNT EVEN SUGGESTED TO PATIENTS WITH INFLAMMATORY DISORDERS AS IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT GLUTEN IS VERY INFLAMMATORY? THEIR ANSWERS? WE WERENT AWARE. REGARDLESS A DIET ESPECIALLY ANYTHING APPROVED BY KAISER, IS NOT GOING TO FIX ME. I HAVE SEVERE MYOCLONUS AND WHEN I SIT OR LAY DOWN I HAVE UNCONTROLLABLE SEIZURES, THEY ARE WORSENED BY LACK OF SLEEP AND STRESS WHICH IS A VICIOUS CYCLE BECAUSE THE SEIZURES KEEP ME FROM SLEEPING WHICH IN TURN STRESSES ME AND EVERYONE ELSE OUT! NO BIG SURPRISE THERE! HOWEVER, THE SEIZURES REMAIN EVEN WHEN I DO GET SOME GOOD DAYS AND GOOD NIGHTS OF SLEEP FROM THE CBD OIL. IT IS HELPING MY SYPMPTOMS AND IM GREATFUL FOR THAT BUT I STILL REMAIN UNDIAGNOSED AND WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE NUEROLOGICAL FUNCTION AND BALANCE AND MOTOR SKILLS AS I HAVE BEEN IF I DO NOT GET AN ANSWER AND A DIRECTION TO MOVE FORWARD. IVE DONE TONS OF RESEARCH AND YOU CAN LOOK OUT THERE FOR YOURSELF. NO ONE, NO ONE HAS EVER WON A LAWSUIT AGAINST KAISER. NOT EVEN THE MOST HORRIFYING CASES AND THEY ARE HORRIFYING. I AM GETTING OUT BEFORE THEY KILL ME. STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS PEOPLE AND START TELLING YOUR STORIES BEFORE THEY KILL US ALL. THE MORE PEOPLE I TELL THE MORE HORRIFYING STORIES I HEAR. JUST YESTERDAY MET A WOMAN WHILE TAKING MY SON TO A NEURO APPT FOR AN EEG. SPOKE WITH A WOMAN WHO HAD BREAST CANCER, DURING RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY THROUGH KAISER SHE ASKED FOR SALINE IMPLANTS. THEY GAVE HER SILICONE INSTEAD AND THEY LEAKED AFTER FOUR YEARS, AND NEVER TOLD HER THEY WERE SILICONE EITHER, SHE NOW HAS THREE SEPARATE OVERLAPPING AUTO IMMUNE DISORDERS. SHE COULD'NT EVEN FIND A LAWYER TO TAKE HER CASE. IF YOU THINK BIG PHARM ISN'T GONNA PROTECT ITS INTERESTS BY LAWYERING PEOPLE INTO THE GROUND, YOU'RE WRONG... THE PROOF IS OUT THERE IN ALL THE STORIES JUST START ASKING AROUND, YOU'LL SEE.. ARE YOU GOING TO PUT YOUR LIFE IN THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO WOULD BE BULLIED BY CORPORATE PHARM AND TAKE A CUT$ FOR DOING SO? YUP, THATS WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT THE FREAKING MONEY .. NICE WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH EH? THANKS FOR NOTHING DR. C , MEANWHILE, MY HUSBAND AND I CONTINUE LVIING A HALF LIFE AND TRYING TO RUN OUR BUSINESS AND CARE FOR OUR SEVERELY DEV DISABLED SON WHO IS ALSO HAVING UNEXPLAINED GRAND MAL SEIZURES. DO THEY SEEM TO TAKE ANY OF THAT INTO ACCOUNT OR THE FACT THAT MY SON REALLY NEEDS ME? NOPE. NO COMPASSION. MY PRIMARY ACTUALLY TOLD ME "WELL ATLEAST YOUR NOT IN A WHEELCHAIR!" WOW, JUST WOW.. MY SON IS IN A WHEELCHAIR , MY MOM IS IN A WHEELCHAIR, SO NOT FUNNY! MY MOM IS FOR SIMILAR REASONS. SHE WAS UNDIAGNOSED CANCER FOR 8 MONTHS. HER BODY ATTACKED ITSELF AND THOUGH THEY FINALLY FOUND AND REMOVED THE CANCER SHE WAS ALREADY AN INVALID FROM THE AUTO IMMUNE. THATS WHERE IM HEADED IF I WAIT FOR KAISER TO STEP UP. NOT WAITING AROUND, THIS IS MY LIFE I AM TALKING ABOUT.
