I have been suffering with fatigue for ten years now following gastroenteritis. If I push things too hard physically I have these 'exhaustion attacks' where I basically 'hit the wall' and collapse with my heart going like crazy. Things are pretty intense for a few hours then I feel messed up for a few days to a week with autonomic symptoms like poor circulation, irritable bowel and a rapid pulse. Tests have revealed raised AST/ALT and low blood sugar (~2) when I am at my worst.
During the last episode ALT rose to over 700 with associated immune activity (elevated ESR, C-reactive protein and metamyelocytes). The immune activity resolved in a few weeks whereas the liver results decayed exponentially back to normal over a few months.
I have seen many specialists and been tested for the viral hepatitis', liver disorders like copper and iron storage and various autoimmune disorders. I have also had normal abdominal ultrasounds.
During the ten years I have had periods of relative wellness with normal liver results and have lived the diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome.
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks so much!
