After loosing my job, my condo, my car, my boyfriend , a recent suicide attempt and 6 or 7 mis diagnosies..... NOW, the doctors say they have figured out the REAL problem. I have bipolar disorder. The "psychotic type" whatever that means.. They put me on lithium and leave me to fend for myself as I have no insurance.My grandmother offered to pay for a visit to see a chiropractor yesterday and WOW!!!! He did ex- rays and told me I had a thyroid problem and that my kidneys were not functioning. Of course I have recently passed two thyroid blood exams and a kidney panel (because of the over dose) When I told him this couldn't be possible, He said blood tests are not accurate. He also said that I probably don't have bipolar disorder and that he could fix most of my symptoms with chiropractic procedures. He then adjusted some bones in my back and neck and said that my thyroid should now be getting oxygen and once it heals, I will be feeling much better. I really don't want to get my hopes up, but it would be so awesome if I didn't have to live with this disorder forever and a good chiropractic adjust was all I really needed. I need some advise! Have you guys ever heard of this before? Are there really other health problems that have side effects that mimic bipolar disorder???
