My friend has been experiencing symptoms that people are baffled by, because all her bloodwork and cat scans turn out to be normal. They say she is depressed, having anxiety, possibly chronic fatigue, neurological issues, infections, and other nonspecific findings. Two months of antibiotics and steroids has only depleted her natural immunity and good bacteria. Her symptoms are a constant fatigue, malaise, a feeling of being poisoned. She has times when her skin has a crawly feeling in places on her arms and knees, her belly button, and left salivary gland. She actually has a bitter, toxic taste to her saliva. She has episodes of more intense sickness when she exerts her self physically or emotionally (walking uphill, cheering at a ballgame). Does anyone else experience these same things? Her blood sugar is 110 during her episodes of more extreme jitteriness and nausea. That's a perfect sugar. I have a theory, and one more piece to the puzzle. Please respond if this sounds like you and help me solve this mystery!

  • Seeing things like exercise make her worst.. it does sound like a possible case of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). http://wwcoco.com/cfids/bernesx.html http://forums.phoenixrising.me/forum.php is a good CFS forum if your friend wants to learn more about this illness. CFS also known as chronic fatigue immunity dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS) .. over doing things can affect both physically and mentally. (some studies have shown that there is some form of mitochrondial dysfunction in the cells). There are also many theories out there that the methylation system is affected too, if that system is affected, ones body wont deal with toxins as well. It appears that many different things go wrong and come into play during CFS. Most of the abnormalities in CFS need highly specialised tests to show up abnormalities, unfortunately common general tests all show up as being normal.

We know there is more to this, and are trying to get to the causes and cure. Fatigue is just one of her many, many, many symptoms. The thing we are focusing on is what is making her skin feel like it is crawling in different places on her body. That doesn't fit many known conditions. ? It seems to be directly tied with what is making her so very sick. She feels like she's been poisoned (she hasn't been).

  • Atleast 5 of these symptoms fit what I am going through. My husband cooked dinner last night and my quote exactly said " I feel poisoned" Now I have had the sick feeling and fatigue before and what helped was taking acidophilus pills daily for yeast overgrowth throughout your system. The feeling uncomfortable in my ow nskin and seeing things out of the corner of my eyes just recently started and I tried to contribute having recent surgery and being put under to it (also being on 4 different antibiotics)...but it has been 3 months now and I am still having it happen. I will try taking the acidophilus pills again and let you know if that helps. Best of luck figuring it out...Its driving me crazy.
