Please help me. I have had explosive diarrhea for over 2 years. I have lost my job and am locked in the house for fear of being in public. This all started after a mild stroke and femoral bypass surgery. I have been to multiple GI docs and interists. They have checked me multiple times with various scopes upper and lower GI's and each time the results are negative. I was recently told that my TSH was very high....in the thousands. A nodule was found in the back of my neck. However, when performing the dye test the results came back that the thyroid was functioning correctly. I recently was retested and my physician said the results were looking better. I was thinking that this was the cause of my diarrhea and slurred speech. I am forgetting things more and more.....I left my car running at work for over 4 hours. I have forgotten how to spell my name. I have lost weight although I am eating like normal. I continue with the diarrhea and can no longer function in society much less keep a job. Please advise. I am very depressed.

  • For goodness sakes get a new doctor! You had a sky high TSH and a nodule. You need a better diagnostician. Are you seeing an endocrinologist? If not, find one ASAP because when you have unusual presenting symptoms for thyroid disease, an endocrinologist is needed and necessary.You might in the meatime read this following comprehensive website on thyroid disease and its management.http://www.thyroidmanager.org/It is written by doctors for doctors treating patients.You might need this medical dictionary to understand some medical terminology.http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/

  • You sound like me. I have chronic fatigue syndrome...has it been ruled out or even considered by your doc's? The only thing I found to help was NAET or Bioset therapy. It gave me back my life...I had over 75 symptoms and was half dead so I tried it. I now have my life back. google Bioset therapy and the place you live...It will take you where you need to go. also try www.naet.com Bioset is an off chute of NAET..both work!! Good luck and get well with Bioset/NAET....mommy cat:) PS...I'm not the only one giving this info, others have done it and confirm it works...this is where I found the info thanks to a very gracious girl.

  • Exposure to chemicals, bug spray (diazinon), toxic house, allergies to certain foods? Do you eat a lot of fish? Where do you live and what do you eat. Where does your drinking water come from? Heavy metal poisoning. Thyroid problems seems most logical though. Look up thyroid storm and if more of the symptoms match, go to the ER. Look up Grave's disease. You have several symptoms. Or, too much fake sweeteners. Celiac? Lactose intolerance?

  • My husband had “explosive diarrhea” (a highly appropriate term) for what seemed liked donkey years. After running test after test, the doctors finally settled on IBS (which seemed to be doctor code for “we don’t know”). My husband resisted that diagnosis as it cut out all of his favorite things. Had he not worked so close to home and had a toilet close to his office, he would have had to stop work. I quit cooking anything except for recipes from http://www.helpforibs.com, and the problem subsided. He refused to stay on the IBS diet; to my disbelief, the non-IBS food didn’t bother him anymore. We’ve no reason for the cause or the “cure”. Always get a second (or even third or fourth) opinion.

  • RE: IBSMy IBS is finally gone after years of suffering with it. I got on the correct dose of thyroid medication.RE: Lactose IntoleranceI tried the wonderful Lactaid tablets and it made my symptoms 10 times worse. Finally, when my thyroid medication was given at the correct dose my lactose intolerance disappeared!Mommy Cat:Did you have an elevated TSH level in the thousands? If so was that cured by the NAET?

  • Dxd... I had a "normal" TSH.... B12 folate and many others...I had a "cyst" on my thyroid..remember, CFS'ers can have nodular thyroids and severe thyroid issues...it's a fact. I was negative for EBV (mono) but have HH6I was negative for Lyme and saw a Rheumy who said I didn't have Lupus(which I knew) my estrogen was very low and my testosterone is very high....not normal...but, because they fell within the "normal" range on a lab slip...my doc told me it was "OK"... WRONG!!not OK....not even close... Since Bioset, I've had my first "cycle" with no PMS!!!!!!!I can't believe it and neither can my fiancee but I am living proof!Dxd....You will not believe my words until you try it!!I was very skeptical...almost convincing myself it wouldn't work.Best of luck...mommy cat!!
