Hello, I am 32 years old and have an 11 month old baby. I had a very difficult pregnancy- lots of heartburn and throwing up a lot. When my baby hit 9 months old I started experiencing weird symptoms- my ears hurt intermittently... I went to the urgent care and was prescribed claratin d for supposaid allergies. Then, on day 3 of this med I started having random bodily twitching... ALL OVER... It's very irritating. I have been to a chiropractor thinking I was out of alignment. While this helped my stiffness, it did not get rid of the fasiculations. Plus, my ears still hurt. Finally, in addition to my ears, my throat started periodically feeling like I was being choked.. I thought it was allergies but went to an ent who diagnosed me with acid reflux- super painful. I can't eat much of anything without discomfort. I guess I'm looking for some support through all this. Wondering if anyone has ever been in this boat. Don't know what direction to turn.
