Before I say anymore I decided to write this to you all because I have come to accept, after a few relapses over the last almost 2 years, that I need support; and the closest support I can find for this sort of thing is on these forums. I don’t know about you but I like being reminded that: I AM NOT ALONE.
So, thank you.
A little bit about me:
I have been battling issues for as long as I can remember. I was a little boy with lots of GI problems, ADD, OCD, ear infections (with several rounds of antibiotic treatments).
Fast forward to the future and my problems worsened to: insomnia, muscular weakness/pain, testicular pain, brain fog, fatigue, lots of GI issues, hypertension, hypoglycemia, and emotional/mental challenges.
My confirmed food sensitivities are to: MSG (fermented products in general), diary, wheat, garlic, yeast, shellfish, and eggs.
I have been eating clean since May 28th and yesterday I experimented with Coconut Amino’s (which I reacted to) — Hence why I know now that I have a confirmed issues with MSG/fermented products).
I am on a treatment program suggested by a doctor and nutritionist; I will continue to update this as I go forward.
Thank you for your support!June 10, 2012 at 2:59 am #84320
The one word that I think best describes this week would be: Cyclical. My body goes through Cycles of the same physical symptoms.
Some of my symptoms this week were:
Reddened knuckles, burning feet/toes, burning scalp, burning around private area, burning axilla, sore throat, itchy anus, periods of fatigue/brain fog, left sided testicular pain, low mood + anxiety.
I don’t have the chronic, never-ending, muscle/joint pain I have become so accustomed to, instead the pain comes and goes like waves now (Much like my stomach).
Albeit rare, I have also had moments of real clarity and happiness. The kind of thinking and feeling that many people probably take for granted but has been so elusive for me (and other Candida sufferers).
I will continue to be steadfast in this process knowing that it is going to take quite some time.June 29, 2012 at 3:14 am #85803
The last week or so has been the hardest. I have been fatigued, anxious, brain foggy, and experienced some real low moods. All apart of the process I know.
Bowel movements haven’t been the greatest until, quite literally an hour ago. A lot of muscle/joint pain, acne breakout on my neck, stomach pains, bloating, insomnia, ear pain/itchiness (week 3).
Also, starting at week 3 I began a chelation process for heavy metals. We found high levels of lead and mercury in my urine and this may have increased my negative detoxy symptoms.
