I am 26 soon turning 27 average height and slight build approx 45 Kilos and ever since contracting Glandular Fever in 95/96 and then getting sick with a virus in 97 I have suffered fatigued and had a low immune system. For a year I worked out doors and for that entire year I did not get sick but once I returned to office work the colds and flu's returned but I have since been diagnosied with a Sinus issue which will require surgery to address so I suspect as does the doctors that has been the course of the reoccuring infections and if the surgery is successful those illness will cease but now I have a much bigger problem! Feb 6 2006 a large refridgerated semi truck decided to turn my mid sized car into a compact on my way home from work injuring my back, neck, shoulders and jaw and then in October I starting having what my friends and family call Muppet Attacks which are proceeded by a general unwell feeling, confusion, disorentation, unsteady on my feet, difficulting thinking and construction sentences and later my legs become heavy causing me to walk sort of bow legged and then I loose all strength my muscles twich, my heart and breathing races and I become paralysed, with changed sensation to touch and I only retain eye movement and very, very slurred speach. In the hour or two that follows my body slowly returns to normal with the use of my upper body functions always returing first. In the first instance I was hospitalised with up to 20 a day and now they are approx monthly but due to not having a diagnosis I cannot work, drive and I seem to constantly live in a mental fog I cannot track time, think clearly or carry anything precious because I forget I am holding things and drop them. Does anyone have anything similar or any ideas as the hospitals and doctors are not able to provide any answers? I also suffer but I am sure if it is related headaches, bloating, constipation, irritable bowel, insomnia and I am not getting my periods very often. :eek:

  • Wow, sorry to hear about all your troubles. You sound like you have a lot going on. Are you taking any meds currently? Please try to find an acupuncturist to help you with your symptoms, especially those that occured after your accident. To find a practitioner near you please visit www.acufinder.com They list practitioners all around the world. Also, I recommend INTRAMAX as a fantastic nutritional supplement. Visit www.druckerlabs.com for more info. Get a neti pot and try to use it daily to help with your sinuses. Getting surgery may indeed help, and it may not. A neti pot helps clear the passages and allows them to do their job of filtering out toxins. Best wishes.DOM
