Hi im a 19 year old male with chronic health problems this all started after i used a number of injectable anabolic steroids for bodybuilding purposes including testosterone, trenbolone, + other drugs including arimidex, DNP (Dinitrophenol) and clenbuterol.
I have had 20 blood tests in the past 6 months which show basically nothing wrong with me. I have had done... Chest CT Scan, chest x-rays, lung function tests, Pituitary MRI, Ecocardiogram, EKG's, DEXA bone scan, 24 hour holter monitor, Abdominal Ultrasound. All negative. Besides my holter monitor did show bradycardia and tachycardia and sinus arrithmia.
Alternative medical doctor said i have systemic candida (digestion and immunity in the large and small intestine are down) but i think i can only have this if im immunocompromised correct?
Hair mineral analysis showed low chromium, low cobalt (Vitamin B12 if im not mistaken?), low molybdenum, low manganese.
I have been taking chromium 250-500mcg per day, manganese 20-40mg per day, 1000mcg sublingual B12 capsules 1 per day, zinc + molybdenum.
B12 deficency would explain the sense of touch loss since it can cause nerve damage.
Ecocardiogram showed insignifcant mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve regurgitation.
Endoscopy, colonoscopy, gastroscopy done, no parasites. Mild chronic gastritis found and mild oesophagitis.
I have high mercury on hair analysis 2.4 range is (0.0 - 0.6), still waiting for blood mercury levels to arrive and about to do urinary 24 hour mercury test.
Quite comprehenisve autoimmune testing all negative.
Symptoms (symptoms come and go sometimes i feel completely normal then relapses):
Fatigue, chronic at times
Feeling of weakness
Muscle weakness, if trying to lift something arms get sore quickly
Reduction in the sense of touch
Loss/large reduction of taste and smell
high and low blood pressure
Sometimes hands and feet get cold and sometimes leg or arm would go numb like a loss of circulation
Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
Immune system feels down - feeling sick often, middle ear infections, mouth ulcers, breathing difficulty
2 months ago had severe bone and joint pains and fever now just clicking and cracking of some joints
Going in different environments sometimes makes symptoms worse such as driving in a car somewhere far away or going to a new place.
Muscles sometimes feel and look bigger "swell up" then next day deflate and this alternates.
Edema/swelling of the body sometimes.
Pulse sensation noticed in the left side of neck and where the stomach is.
Weight loss.... im 190cm
109kgs August 08
95kgs February 09
Note: I have been at a clinic and got 30grams of intravenous vitamin C once each week for the past three weeks, i also regularly take two chinese herbal tonics to boost the immune system, zinc, Echinacea, Olive Leaf extract, garlic oil, probiotics and bovine colostrum. Im not sure what effect these will all have on my test results probably by making them better than they really are.
I have the blood tests in a attachment...
Any info would be great, Thank You :).
