  • I read your other post and it sounds like you have been through an awful lot, and having such young kids only makes things harder.:( have you checked into candida? Candida can cause a lot of seemingly random symptoms and docs don't think this is much of a problem. Google candida and you will find lots of info, -see if it fits. Threelac is one of the best candida cleanses out there. Are you currently taking any meds? Have you been tested for lymes? Do you feel any lumps in your breast - could just be a plugged duct. I assume you were not able to breastfeed, but you still may be having some mastitis symptoms? How is your digestion? Urination? Are you taking any supplements? I recommend taking a good quality multivitamin and probiotic to help boost your immune system. Also I would recommend trying to find an alternative practitioner who can help you get back in balance and start feeling better. Best wishes.DOM

  • Have they tested you for something called Lupus? I dont know much about it but you can feel run down and get skin problems with blisters. Think it has got something to do with your immune system not working as it should.

  • Seems like me and you might be twins. Look up Systemic Candida and take a spit test in a clear glass of water in the morning before brushing if your saliva looks like a thread-like mesh or grows down the glass it's Candida. I had an herbalists confirm my suspiscions after three hospital visits and 3 different doctors sending me to get blood work for all sorts of possibilities including early menapause. I thank God everyday for alternative medicine and a ton of probiotics say about 8 a day until I get back to the harbalists.Good luck and God bless,Someone who felt your pain

  • Go to: parathyroid.com and check the symptoms. I was misdiagnosed with MS and it turned out to be a tumor on one of my parathyroids! Life is getting better since surgery. Good luck!

  • Hello,I came across this post and although it was old I felt compelled to share my thoughts from an alternative perspective.It can be very frustrating when our body cries out in pain and there seems to be no relief in sight and no real answers. Well, you have probably heard how the mind and body are connected yet, many doctors are not trained to connect and address the two. Thus the emotional side of ourselves is often left unattended. There is a short and interesting clip on you tube touching on how body symptoms are often a result of depression or vice versa- may offer a bit of insight or another perspective http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSn3xmg3b2s&feature=channelScience has proven that we are made up of energy. If you think of everything as energy then you will understand this analogy. Suppose someone had lots of issues or stress in their life, yet never took the time to do anything about it. Perhaps they stuffed hurt feelings, anger & resentment deep inside. Those feelings carry a lot of charge to them, a lot of negative emotion. If someone were to constantly stuff those feelings or try and numb them out somehow, eventually those things would need to come out. It would be like a boiling pot with the lid on, ready to boil over. When we don't address the actual issues, they find ways of manifesting themselves, oftentimes as pain in our bodies. I'm not saying that is your issue, but I can say that it would not hurt for you to get some support for what is going on. If nothing more you could look at it as proactive in the event you are diagnosed with some sort of life threatening illness, you have people on your side. Support I would suggest would be by a licenced therapist, and also some relaxation support like massage therapy, breathing exercises like in meditation, and when you feel up to it - perhaps yoga... Best of luck with your healing journey.V

  • I know this is a late post, but since I read these things, add-ons supply more info! All of your symptoms sound like Lyme Disease. I have it, I should know. Lyme can be chronic but hidden for years. Mine came out with pregnancy, and along with it other infections when my immune system was compromised. It can mask itself and be mis-diagnosed as MS, Parkinsons, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, CFS/CFIS, immunity-compromise, Rheumatiod Arthritis, Alzheimers. It can attack a single system, or any and all of them, such as the nervous system, joints, eyes, tendons, ligaments, brain, etc. There is only one good Lyme test out right now, so far the most reliable, through IGeneX labs.Usually other infections the body has kept in check take over too, such as Shingles/Herpes, Babesia, Epstein-Barr, Mycoplasma Pneumonia.Wishing you correct diagnosis and the best recovery!!
