  • Yes, I believe the symptoms you mentioned could be auto immune disease. It also sounds like your immune sys. is very, very low, compromised.Have you had an MRI of the brain? e.g. MS? Also ck. systemic diseases, as well.Try taking prednisone with the antibiotics; It's helped with me, so who knows?Also, try an inhaler for the upper airways, or one of those face cover/machines---inhaler things. I can't think of the name...Quit smoking, if you do smoke.I would check on homeopathic treatments, etc., to build up your immune system. Perhaps do a (another... no doubt) search for compromised immune systems. Perhaps try accupuncture...?Hopefully your symptoms will become evident eventuall with enough testing, e.g. blood, xray, MRI, etc., and you can get a definite diagnosis. I went through the same thing, only worse for 15 years until...I have MS, Mixed, Connective Tissue Disease, Chostochondritis, etc., so I know this is a very difficult time for you.Keep looking, searching. You'll find a bit of relief and rejoice in it! Pray, and believe you will feel good, better each morning; and keep doing exercises/stretching and don't give up! There are new meds/treatments out there, almost daily.One last thing. Try going off the antibiotics for about a month or more, if you can. Then if you need them again, switch after 2 doses of the same type of antibiotic, to something else. I've been there, as well.Don't despair or give up!!!Good luck and God bless!

  • NAET: A Breakthrough Treatment for Allergies NAET uses Muscle Response Testing (MRT) to confirm the presence of allergic reactivity. Once identified, Dr. Nambudripad uses spinal manipulation, acupressure and / or acupuncture procedures to eliminate the allergy. The treatment is geared to re-program the brain's negative responses towards the allergen(s) to a positive response whenever these substances are contacted in the future. NAET is based on the Chinese Medicine principle, that "no disease is possible when your body is in perfect balance". Through NAET, my health is being brought back into a "homeostasis" or a perfect energy balance throughout my entire body. NAET offers an Energy Medicine solution to allergic conditions by balancing the body and mind through three pathways: 1. The mind-body energy pathway (Psycho-somatic pathway), 2. The body-mind energy pathway( Somato- visceral pathway) and 3. The mind-body-organ pathway (Psycho-somato-visceral pathway) All of this is accomplished through the stimulation of the spinal nerves using a specific acupuncture/acupressure and spinal manipulation protocol without drugs, allergy shots, or any forms of invasive entry into the body. For the last fifteen years, Dr. Nambudripad has been using her own discovery, the Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), at her clinic in Buena Park, California, to relieve between 80-90% of her patients' hidden allergies. People come to her from all over America and other countries for this unprecedented degree of relief. She has taught NAET to over 1,300 licensed doctors of chiropractic, acupuncture and traditional medicine. That means, this innovative allergy treatment is now available in many parts of the U.S. and other countries as well. Based on the principle that all matter is associated with energy fields, NAET makes use of the central and autonomic nervous systems ability to recognize and respond to these energy fields. The human brain is intelligent beyond belief. It constantly gathers information from all around us, minute to minute, second to second, and stores it in its memory bank to recall it at a later time as needed. The brain remembers and/or registers everything that has happened during a lifetime. As a result, we have a tremendous ability to interact with the energy fields of all things: people, animals, matters, objects, electrical and Electro-magnetic forces, liquids, gases, polluted dust, pollens, chemicals, etc. as we encounter them in daily life. We are may not be consciously aware of the encounters with these energy fields. This is the silent job of our autonomic nervous system as it maintains our body functions, manages our breathing, keeps the heart beating, falling asleep, waking up, thinking, etc. All neurons or cells in the body are connected by an interlinking network of nerve fibers. These produce the fastest, most proficient communication system in the body. This communication is powered by our vital energy known as "Chi" in Chinese vocabulary. When our bodies no longer respond to the signals from this communication system, we are pronounced dead. Communication between brain cells, body cells, body organs or different body parts takes place within a fraction of a second. Any blockage in this communication network causes disruption in the circulation of vital energy. This in turn will cause imbalance in the energy pathways, body cells, organs and functions of the cells and organs. Imbalances in the energy channels over a long period of time will result in illness or disease. http://www.ei-resource.org/articles/allergies/allergies-art03.asp
