This is my third post on the board and Iam still looking for some direction. My main complaint is I have difficulty digesting almost any type of food that I eat, especially carbohydrates and sugars. I have severe edema mostly in my legs, my muscles and bones ache, pressure in my lower back, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue,sensitivty to heat, loss of interest in sex, extreme hair loss (head, eyelashes), foggy head, etc. I have been to 2 GI doctors and infectious disease doctor, who has ruled out all possibilities. I am thinking it is something outside of my GI system that is causing the problems. Such as an endocrine d/o (adrenal exhaustion, fibro.) also possbily b12 deficiency. Anyone else have similar symptoms? Trying to find a connection between my stomach and all these other symptoms.
