    Hi, So I’ve been dealing with some pretty heavy fatigue and muscle weakness since the beginning of this year. I am experiencing shortness of breath, light headedness, numbness in hands in feet, shooting pains, quickly tiring muscles, general fatigue, cold extremeties, trouble concentrating, easy bruising, trouble conforming my muscles into certain positions, and headaches. I had bad candida for a long time which has been more under control for the last year and a half, but got very toxic fighting it. Every time I go for bloodwork, everything comes back normal. No lyme, normal cbc, normal thyroid, no anemia, liver enzymes are good. My muscles get weaker from sugar and carbs, antifungals and probiotics don’t do anything to help anymore and food mistakes arent as costly as they used to be. The yeast seems to be at a stand still, as if my system is blocked up or something. Currently taking fluconazole, colloidal silver, and a probiotic with no effect. I am on 600mg of lithium which seems to make everything worse. My doctor tried potassium and it didn’t work, now he has me starting B12 injections.

    Does anybody know what could be causing all this or what I could do to try to get some energy back? The only things I can think to do are to detox and try to clean out my gut with psyllium and bentonite and get off of the lithium (I’ve never been able to tolerate it). When I got out of the hospital after my course of nystatin a year and a half ago, I was in the gym 3 days a week and getting stronger. I want to get back there, but i can’t figure out how. My diet is very healthy and low glycemic/low carb, I do slip up here and there though. I’m wondering if nutritional balancing is worth looking into. Can anyone comment on that idea? If anyone needs more information to get a better idea of what’s going on, I can elaborate further. Please help.

    There are a variety of adrenal support and thyroid products out there on the market that can help you, there is a whole alternative health system out there that can help you get better, you just need to know how to use it.

    For instance, look at some of the standard process products or thorne. The drenamin product could be one that might work, its rather safe in general at low doses. You also could be deficient in iodine and if you supplement with it, it gives you energy (standard process makes one).

    I personally think your recent symptoms are thyroid related, but thyroid testing can be inconclusive. I would consider testing your iodine levels to see whether they are low or not.

    Then there are some other products to look into as well. Digestive enzymes help you gain more energy from the food you eat, by allowing your body to break down and absorb the food better. These are rather inexpensive and likely would help you pretty fast.

    S. Boulardii is something else I would look at as well as kombucha. Boulardii is highyl anti-inflammatory and produces lactic acid. Kombucha has a variety of b vitamins in it that help your methylation system and overall energy.

    Thanks a lot man, I’ll try some of this out and get back to you. Thyroid would make a lot of sense since I’ve had thyroid problems before and I’m on a drug that causes thyroid dysfunction. I’ll have my naturopath test my iodine level.
