We need help! Is there a doctor who will help? The oil and gas industry has DISHed it out to us.
The news that I continually get makes this nightmare worse and worse. I have yet another twenty something young lady who has undiagnosed neurological problems that started when she moved here. She has been shipped out of state for testing on a number of occasions, and they have been unable to diagnose the problems she is having. I am having difficult time in know what the next move should be. I wonder if there is a medical doctor out there who may come to help us here? Maybe there would be someone who could perform toxicology tests on the citizens. Please give me any input you may have, and if you know of anyone who may be willing to help, please let us know. Maybe you could post something on your websites or blogs soliciting help. Together I know you reach thousands of people. Thanks.

I live next to several wells. I put many restrictions on my lease for drilling on my property, so the gas company drilled on a smaller property next door. I now live with three wells a few hundred feet out my back door and just 200 feet or less from my barn and livestock stalls/pens. One well has had many problems, so it has a compressor on it most of the time. the smell gets very strong over here and I, my animals, and my crops spend the whole day down wind from it. Activity this summer has been daily and because I have suffered sciatica in the past and it has been under control for a few years, I have not associated my now daily leg and foot cramps with the wells. But I believe there may be a relation. My stomach as been bothering me all summer as well and I’ve been blaming it on everything but the wells. Does anyone know of any studies I can join relating to people with strong exposure to the oil and gas industry. I hate doctors, live well, try to eat healthy, do yoga, and have excellent health– so I’m probably a good candidate.
And it’s not just in DISH…

Good morning all. I have 4 gas wells 700 feet from my back yard. For the last 3 years we have had to spend hundreds of dollars to clean our attic our vehicles and when it rains we watch the dirt wash off the trees the houses and wonder what is in that DIRT? We have to put up with foul smells, 18 wheelers at all hours, loud compressors, dirt and vermon, Black Rig Rats!Quick Silver is not nor do I expect they will ever be good neighbors!
I am very intrested to see what health issues are linked to your piplines, I have runny nose red eyes and when these wells emit their horrilbe stinch I just wonder what it is that I am being exposed to? AND we have several large Red Oak trees that are dead and one is within the 700 foot mark and the others are across the pasture in line with the prevailing winds? Makes a person wonder? Everything was just fine until 3 years ago, I will be watching with great attention to your situation.

Very sad stories. Very poignant. Thank you for sharing this, Sharon. We are next in Bradford County, PA. I am afraid that the dollar signs are too bright and shiny for many residents in PA to see the problems that are surely coming.

I can’t respond to Gas Well Annie, but you might let her know that natural gas is toxic to trees – that might be what happened to hers.
If anyone believes their medical ills may be caused by nearby drilling contaminating their water (or other source of contamination), getting a law firm on contingency is likely the best bet to have some recourse. One that came up on my internet searches of hydraulic fracturing and contamination is located at http://www.benzeneleukemialawblog.com/tags/hydraulic-fracturing/
What goes down must some up, if it's fracing involved. The substances used in fracing might not all break down in the well! But, companies that make these fracing fluids are cagey about disclosing all of what they use in the fluids.
Oops, I meant what goes down must come up with fracing in gas wells.
