I can’t give medical advice, nor can I say whether or not your prognosis is wrong.
I can say that addiction and alcoholism mimic the symptoms of those diseases. I can also say that the symptoms I displayed went away after I quit drinking.
I would suggest quitting drinking and using, preferably with the help of NA and AA. Even if you do have those diseases, and if they give you meds, using and drinking will interfere with the medication or even nullify the meds or make your condition worse.

When I first seriously decided I wanted to get clean, I sought treatment because doing it on my own never worked. While in treatment, I heard it said over and over that I should do “first things first.” The first thing I had to do was stop using – no matter what. The next thing suggested was getting my butt to meetings. Internet forums weren’t well-known or even available then, so they meant going to face-2-face meetings. I’d suggest the same.September 23, 2013 at 11:16 am#162296AnonymousInactive
Gary, you are so right. The first step is medically supervised treatment, if for no othe reason to feel safe. Also, they introduce one to AA/NA meetings while you’re there, so you don’t walk into a meeting the first time going WTF? While I chose AA because geographically it suited me, pluse half the members are addicts anyway, try both. I wouldn’t be here without them. It took me about 7 relapses to figure that out. Maybe you can do it in less. Best of luck and welcome.
