I lived in Egypt for one year (three years ago), I came back in June and by September I was feeling terrible. I slept for an entire week, missing my first week of classes.
(I was tested for mononucleosis, anemia and an ameoba (sp?) and all three were negative)
I then developed chronic sinus infections, chronic yeast infections, and got the flu twice in one year. I have also had gastrointestinal problems - cramping intestines when i have diareah (which happens several times a year) and also random bouts of constipation.
I also have had a "cold" for almost 3 years now. Sneezing, runny nose, congestion, on and off sore throat, I get headaches and migranes often.
This year alone (in the past 4.5 months) I have gotten sick with a high fever three times. The first time was a gastrointestinal virus (I think, I didnt go to the Dr due to lack of insurance) the second was strep-like symptoms, with a fever, and the third was a severe head cold, conjunctivitis and a fever. All three times I was around people who had mild colds, who got better in 2-3 days, but i cought what they had and got a fever for a week!!
I am fatigued and tired all the time, I sleep 10-15 hours a night and I try to get exersise at least 5 days a week and I eat as healthy as possible (i eat whole grains, fruits and veggies and lean meats like chicken and fish every day), but I get so sick year after year.
Currently I've had a yeast infection for 2 months now. I have been to so many doctors but they only treat the immediate symptoms, the cold, the yeast, the sinus infection -- it'll go away for a month at most, and IT ALWAYS COMES BACK!!
I am just sick and tired of being sick and tired!! I want my life back. Any suggestions? :o)
