When I first walked through Dr. Couri’s office door I was exhausted, lethargic and frustrated. I didn’t have the energy to complete a work day, let alone participate in any of the activities I enjoy. Dr. Couri and her friendly, professional staff have guided and encouraged me to take charge of my health. With Dr. Couri’s help I am proactive with my health and well-being, instead of the traditional, reactive health care I settled for year after year in the past.
My story started on July 27th 2014. I was 28 years old and a mother of three daughters. I was feeling kind of “off” that morning as we were getting ready to go to a family function. First my vision started to get weird and then nausea set in. Next my fingertips went from tingly to completely numb and it traveled up my arm then down the whole right side of my body including my face. I couldn’t walk and my speech didn’t make sense to me or others. I had never experienced anything like this before and I was very scared. Since we had no idea what was happening to my body my husband rushed me to the emergency room. The ER Dr. ruled it as a migraine in combination with a couple of other factors.
For the next year, I was plagued with daily chills and hot flashes, headaches, nausea, severe dizziness, tingly and numbing sensations, mental fogginess, insomnia and heart palpitations. Almost every evening around 5pm my symptoms would start and I would be completely useless to my family. My family Dr. prescribed me some standard migraine medication but I remained unconvinced that the medication was the addressing the real issue. While sharing my concerns with my good friend Jennifer she recommended Dr. Kimberly Couri.
With Dr. Couri I found someone who really listened to me and took into account each of my symptoms. Thanks to her diligence, patience, extensive experience, and her willingness to utilize nontraditional methods she has helped me regain my health. I definitely recommend Dr. Couri to anyone who is looking for a Dr. who can help them regain their quality of life. She definitely helped me regain mine.
