I have been sick not for about two and half years. My symptoms consist of:
*CHRONIC nausea
*CHRONIC body pain(muscle)
*low energy
*feeling down(b/c I've been sick so long)
*upset stomach
Secondary symptoms: headaches, belching, bloating, constipation/diarhhea(alternates back and forth)
I just feel terrible all the time.
My ANA has come back positive twice and negative twice.
I have been to a gastro doc, rheumatologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist, even a nutritionist.
The nutritionist said I had parasites.. but the stool test came back negative.
I would like to get checked for mold allergy. That's next on my list.
Anybody have any suggestions??? Or what is going with me???Have a blessed day.

  • Did anyone check out your iron and ferretin levels or thyroid function (including T3,T4,TSH and thyroid antibodies)? Those symptoms look like hypothyroidism or iron overload (hemochromatosis). Best of luck!

  • My stool came back negative but I was expelling worms. They arent reliable. standard tests 2 parasites; if you have something else it is negative. if you traveled out of the country you may have something they don't test for here you may have to be tested several times before anything shows up. Get a cat scan of your entire digestive track. If anything shows up get an ultrasound. Parasites live in small intestine, liver, lungs; don't show in colonoscopy. Took me 1.5 years to figure out.
