Welcome to:

Sammy Armstrong's

Health Fund Website :)

I have my new wheelchair & are extremely pleased!

Why you should help me:

The only thing stopping me move on and living my life is my bad physical health.

I have been getting progressively ill & disabled since 2007 when I was 17 (although I have had mild
un-diagnosed problems since childhood) it has become clear the NHS has done all it can.
I have exhausted all available knowledge & resources from the NHS, I need specialized private healthcare which offers                 more treatment options.
 

Please donate money so I can see doctors who will actually be able to help me; I need money to access suitable specialized treatment.

I am now  concentrating on raising funds for specialist private medical treatment which is not available on the NHS.  Now I have a new wheelchair I will be able to leave my house, I want to try all the medication I can to improve my autonomic dysfunction (so I am well enough to socialize, shower daily, read books, eat & drink regular volumes, draw & create art like I used to, do more physiotherapy, go on trips & generally be able to do more for myself) & do as much as I desperately want to.
With medication like octreotide I might be able to actually eat a meal in a restaurant, something I have not been able to do since I 2010. I want to make me as well as possible so I can make the most of my new wheelchair... & make the most of my life. 

I have four main physical health problems:

These all cause a variety of symptoms which intrude into my daily life. See my tab at the top of the page for examples of symptoms I have to endure every day.

1) Ehlers Danlos Syndrome 

 

2) Autonomic problems (including Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome aka POTS)

 

3) A chronic kidney

infection, dysmotility 

& kidney stones


4) Mast Cell problems (probably MCAD but I need investigations &                                                      treatment)
