For the last 2 months I have been dealing with a lot of nausea and fatigue. The nausea is all day long (except while I'm eating) and the fatigue is making me sleep until 12 noon. I don't know what is causing these problems but I have some background information below:
1. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 2000 and was poorly controlled for all 7 years. In February I went to see a naturopath and he told me I was intolerant to wheat, dairy, soy, yeast, coffee/tea, cola, chocolate, turnips, spinach, meat and potato combinations, and meat and tomato combinations. After going on this diet my IBS has cleared up (except when I have something by mistake) and miraculously my bipolar has gone away. I haven't had an episode since January. In June I started decreasing my meds: Wellbutrin, Topamax, Risperdal. I started feeling sick when I was off Risperdal, just started to reduce Wellbutrin and at full strength for Topamax. I am now off all of them.
2. About a month into it the dr. diagnosed me with a urinary tract infection. I went on the antibiotics and cleared it up. No help.
3. I am taking pills for yeast problems...but I usually forget to take them. My tongue is white.
4. I am still seeing my psychiatrist. We are monitoring my mood closely to ensure that it isn't a depression. The only symptoms of depression I have is the fatigue.
5. I have memory problems left over from the drugs I was taking. I can't even remember what I used to do before I went on disability.
6. I've had all the standard blood tests and I'm healthy (;-) ). I've had an ultrasound and all my abdominal organs are in good order. Next I'm scheduled for an upper GI.
Any ideas? My hubby is at whit's end.
