Re: Newly diagnosed with leaky gut, IBS?, parasitic infection,chronic fatigue, allergies to mold, dust mites & ragweed and previously with meniere's disease & fibromyalgia --Help!
I live in São Paulo, Brazil and after a lot of research I ended up in your post. I found it incredible how we have similar diseases and symptoms.
I have had asthma since childhood and as a child I have never had a very good health. At the age of 23 I discovered that I have Meniere in both ears :( Terrible! At least I did not spend 4 years to find out that it was, I found a good doctor who diagnosed quickly. After a while I also discovered that I have Restless Legs Syndrome, but I have in the arms and not always. Only when the fatigue crises appear
At age 32 I decided to have a bariatric surgery, I was not super obese, but I had a severe reflux and the doctors convinced me that this was the best option.
It was a disaster for my life. I lost weight, but my health was never the same. I started to have bouts of fatigue, had adrenal fatigue, my testosterone was almost zero. I looked like a zombie !!
I started a journey for many doctors and I solved one problem at a time, but even then I had fatigue (similar to a very bad flu) crisis that lasted from 3 to 5 days. This has ended my life, my marriage, and my family. I feel guilty about being always sick and anxiety takes care of my family because I never have a diagnosis.
I noticed that these bouts of fatigue were always accompanied by gastrointestinal problems and I began to search for ulcerative colitis and Chrons disease. But the only thing that came out of the result was a slight inflammation. Still, I believed that the problem of fatigue was intestinal.
After much research I came across the Instinct Permeability Syndrome or LeakyGut. I did not find a doctor who understood the subject, but even then I started to change my diet. I cut all gluten, lactose, Sugar
and I have only eaten organic.
I'm still in this part, I do not have a diagnosis and I'm not cured either. But more and more I am sure that the problem is a silent and caused chronic inflammation in the intestine. I also believe that this inflammation is responsible for all other diseases.
I would like to talk more with you, I think we can change some exercises and as your post is 5 years wanted to know if you came to some diagnosis or at least managed to improve the symptoms.
Friend, I share your suffering and hope that somehow we can help each other.
