please anyone that has any advice on this?

for 2 1/2 months i have been having infections mostly reoccuring uti and broncitis. also had bouts of thrush, scalp infection, skin infection, bacterial vaginosis and a case of sepsis. GP did a blood test early on, dont know what it was testing for but it came back normal. the infections are coming on quicker and stronger now requiring stronger antibiotics and i am catching more infections whilst on them. have been on back to back antibiotics for the entire time.

also have a general feelings of weakness, weight loss, being unwell, vomiting, bruising easily, acheyness and dizziness.

dont know if some of these syptoms are cause by the infections or medications but i am very unwell at this point and have a feeling that there is something going on. doctors keep passing me off to one another and just writing scripts for more antibiotics. had a full std screen that came back negative.

been told by hospital that i should ask for a referal to an immunologist. wish they had referd me as my GP will most likely dismiss me.

ayone with any advice?

  • anyone with any advice?yes- if you have taken the Gardasil vaccine or similar vaccine for HPV go to the yahoo groups called truthaboutgardasil and letstalkaboutgardasil the moms there know how to help you if you have in fact taken this HPV vaccine and will guide you- they know more than anyone else and have been struggling for the last 3 yrs with this issue= their daughters! Doctors are not equipped for poisons- thus the neg. tests- some even tell you you are imagining it because the "data" proves you have nothing wrong with you- but it is the poison! So if you did take that series of shots or even one- then go to the above people. IF not then get the poisons out of your diets- ( diet food or any food these days have the aspartame and sucralose in it- read labels and trash those items in your kitchen- call the companies first and tell them you are allergic to their ingredients and want your money back then trash it ) that stuff is lethal ( aspartame) and leads to eventual hospitalization ( sucralose) google them and see and steer clear from Ajinomoto who owns most of Aspartame ( or any adverts from Nutrasweet, monsanto- previous onwers of it ) or Johnson and Johnson who coat their pills with the sucralose which is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE BTW- not a good combo if you ask me- most foods are adding it because of this new discovery- so if you have to go with the farms delivery service you can find on line and get REAL food without all of that- watch Food INC if you really want to know what is going on. Small local farms can provide the most healthful foods- ( it may be pricey but it is REAL. ) Also for meds- eat FOOD - essential FOOD only the AFNOR quality though- locate on line also - LESS BUT BEST! because you are number one! btw- aspartame causes birth defects -as well as seizures/ strokesand sucralose shrinks by 45% your spleen and thyroid- critical to the immune system- and it calcifies the kidneys and damages the liver! three congressional hearings to eliminate aspartame from foods in USA and they have ignored them - incentives from the maker!$$

  • You need to be tested for arsenic poisoning! Regular blood tests do not show it. They have to test for it specifically, and usually test your hair. Because if you've been exposed to it, it may not show up in blood, but arsenic stays in the hair FOREVER. But it would cause the symptoms you listed, especially the hair loss. The immunologist is a good one to see, because it definitely sounds like you're immunosuppressed. If you have to get a referral, call your GP's office and tell them you want a referral. They shouldn't have a problem giving it to you. A lot of doctors don't require that though, so you could call the immunologist's office and ask if you can make an appointment. But I would definitely get tested for arsenic poisoning, and maybe heavy metals. The treatment is easy, and sooo important that you get it done ASAP. Go to the hospital if you have to, make someone listen! So many people are unknowingly exposed to arsenic, and get sick like you, and never know why. It is a very dangerous thing. Good luck! please anyone that has any advice on this?for 2 1/2 months i have been having infections mostly reoccuring uti and broncitis. also had bouts of thrush, scalp infection, skin infection, bacterial vaginosis and a case of sepsis.

  • I think you really need to follow up with the hospitals advice and see a immunologist. If you do that and still have issues if he cant find the cause.. post again as I will reply. But you really need to go to immunologist and start getting some things ruled out and then go from there. No one can currently diagnose you online from just those symptoms.

Not sure since I don't remember your symptoms.

  • Have you taken the Gardasil Vaccine?That would explain the issue with the food- and perhaps others. Not sure since I don't remember your symptoms.Gardasil has been known to provoke hair loss and muscle weakness- joint pain, lots of things. Like I said if you took the vaccine go to the yahoo groups and ask the moms about what they are doing to help their girls. They have loads of experiences. Even if just to have emotional support during your quest for health- they are very helpful.

Well, I am sorry that it appears like I am an anti-gardasil and anti-sweetener person- I thought you were 1. undiagnosed2. listing sveral symptoms that are typical of the side effects of the HPV vaccine you now have decided you think will help you3. listing several symptoms that the sweeteners also have been known to give their consumers4. wanted some help from those who may know something you did notBecause you do not know I have been studying the poisons on the market listed as sweeteners and HPV vaccine and have been trying to help those countless others ( possibly you)by sharing with them what could be hurting you - since many of the thousands of injured from the above poisons went on for up to 5+ and 3+ years respectively struggling to find their causes. They are still struggling to find their cures!Just google these products before consuming them. Hope you get better soon -

They are still struggling to find their cures!Just google these products before consuming them. Hope you get better soon - BTW I am not sure where you are getting your facts but if you go to VAERs official site and read the reports submitted by the victims of the vaccines- you will find MANY reports for the MMRll specifically made by MERCK and you will find the deaths listed caused by Gardasil as well- sad but true- read them yourself and you will see that there is plenty of basis for the warnings you are getting- and feel blessed that your parents did not vaccine you ever- I was vaccinated in my life more than a dozen times but those times are gone and now the lack of scrutiny before doing things is the cause for the "guinea pig" effect on the public where deaths and life altering adverse effects are taking place. MMRll used to be given separately measles mumps and rubella and now they are given all together with three times the adjuvant which is an irritant to the system and which has heavy metals. This bunching of vaccines has proven dangerous. The Hep B vaccine has been proven to be dangerous and France banned it after one baby death- no one needs a Hep B vaccine as a baby- used to keep people from getting a disease transfered by illicit sex and drug use. If the baby gets it is has been given to him by his mother and this cannot be prevented. THus no vaccine is warranted and least of all one that has bloated the baby killing him/her. Please research and learn before you repeat information that is not correct. Gardasil information can be found everywhere now but if you google Diane Harper = the scientist who "sold" it to FDA she herself states that the risk is not worth the benefits whidh she now admits are none. ( People are and can be led astray by the manufacturers who produce and market their products) I sincerely hope you do get better soon- research and learn what you have- you are young and smart. Research.

I don't know if this will help, but once I got extremely ill from drinking tap water. Yes, tap water! I might suggest that you be tested for fluoride in your urine and if not there in a blood test. Even small amounts can cause you serious problems. For me, the doctors wanted me to have a kidney transplant. I was luck enough to see a program on TV that was talking about fluoride. Today it is put not only in the water, but in medications! Not good news for those of use that do not tolerate the poison. It is a poison. The cure is to drink distilled water. Not any bottled water...distilled water only. Call the manufacturer to be certain that their distilled water does not contain fluoride. It's worth a try. Hope this helps.

An immunologist might be able to help and is an excellent suggestion. The hair falling out may not be related to your problem. Sometimes, we can have more than one thing wrong with us and will require alternative treatments.Many years ago, I began to bloat, couldn't lose the weight, was tired and my teeth began to chip for no reason. I was exhausted all the time. I went to specialist for everything. I even went to the Mayo Clinic in Boston and they could not fing anything wrong with me. Then one morning I was watching TV as I was doing my housework ...it was talking about fluoride poisoning. It gave the name of a doctor in Mass. and I made an appointment in haste. I proved positive for fluoride in my urine and the doctor told me to drink only distilled water. It completely cured me. Not any bottled water, only distilled water that contained no fluoride. Unfortunately, today they are using fluoride in many medications; topical gels and antibiotics (this can make you even more ill). When this happened to me, they wanted to do a kidney transplant! My father was willing but I couldn't understand why this would happen so quickly. Before I went to the doctor about the fluoride called the water company in my area to learn that they had recently added fluoride to the water...so for me it made sense. However, it can take time for the fluoride to build in the body and it does build up. It is a metal that would normally be a waste product of companies like Alcoa. I just recently learned that America is buying it's fluoride from China! What a wonder thing that is...sense they put lead in the children's toys and had many recalls. You might try distilled water (call the manufacturer and be certain it contains no fluoride) and see if it helps or at least ask your doctor to test your urine and blood for the fluoride content. We are exposed to it everyday in or water, toothpaste, and medications. It is worth a try. A small amount of fluoride can be toxic to children. Just read the warning label on the toothpaste box! I'm not saying this is your problem, I'm not a doctor. I am only sharing my experience with you. If you have any doubts, just check out the data on the web about fluoride poisoning. Good luck to you and let me know if this helps.
