I'm a Canadian living in asia.I have chronic HCV(20 years),herpes(30 years) and recurring prostititus. I have bladder infections about once a year here.I have had chest pain for at least a year which seems unrelated to exercise,also pain in my joints and muscles.I had a cursory heart test(ECG) and was told my heart rate seems normal.My bp has been slowly rising in the past few months.A month ago for the first time all my lymph glands(neck,under arms,chest,groin,behind knees) began to swell,burn and hurt.I felt weak and feverish.I developed urinary problems(frequent urination) and recently a throat infection.I've seen different doctors here without much success.The liver doctor thinks that these recent symptoms are due to my HCV and liver condition and recommends interferon therapy.I saw a lymph doctor who thought my lymph glands are normal!My lymph glands are sensitive and cause a aching in the area where they are.They may not hurt much if you press them but soon after they will with a burning sensation.The swelling seems to come and go in the groin and underarms but persistent behind my knees and neck.So now I have swollen lymph glands,a throat infection,urinary problems and night sweats with a fever that comes and goes.Yesterday I saw the lymph doctor who found nothing and the throat doctor who told me I have an infection.Any advice would be appeciated.

  • get tested for helicobacter pylori and fungus in the intestines.You certainly have an immune system/ toxicity problem. It you have toxins or an infection in your blood, your lymph try to empty the toxins in the blood, but can't because it is over saturated. The moment there is toxicity in your gut, the liver get backed up and gets intoxicated too.Even if you don't have fungus or helicobacter (very common in third world countries), your immune system is acting violently (giving you all that pain and stiffness). Check with an immunologist.

  • Get grapefruit seed extract- it is very safe for the liver. It will kill viruses, bacteria and fungi. Take it once or twice a day (twice if you weight over 150 lb). It will help clear your gut and blood.Eat 80% raw food (make sure is clean and safe food), and avoid dairy products and eating to much beef, because your body transforms it into the chemicals that are giving you pain and inflammation ( an immune system reaction).http://www.drcranton.com/yeast.htmGood Luck.

  • I recommend acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been treating HCV very successfully, and myself I have two patients with HCV who's enzyme levels are within normal range by taking herbs. I don't know where you are in asia but I am positive you can find someone who can help with your symptoms. Please, please try to find one near you. I wish you the best of luck.Doctor of Oriental Medicine

  • :) My word, there are a lot of folks out there. I've recently gone to a podiatrist, sounds weird huh? Any way he said for me to take tumeric in a double ott size capsual once a day. Works for me , i can see visable results after one month,& its all good, cleans you right out,& you will feel sooo much better. So try it you'll like it,, In His Service.

I wish you the best of luck.Doctor of Oriental Medicine I live in Taiwan,I haven't seriously pursued a Traditional chinese medicinal approach to my health problems however it is a consideration.But I must tell you that I received my first acupuncture treatment in a hospital here in my city about 2 years ago for chronic neck pain.The needles were inserted in my left arm which soon after insertion caused an uncomfortable sensation and then discomfort(no,I am not bothered by needles at all).After the needles were removed the pain in my neck was unaffected but my left arm had nerve pains for a week afterwards.The practitioner was reputedly one of the best in the hospital that day.I offer this only as a comment not a criticism of acupuncture.But as we all know,mainstream medicine is not always the all knowing entity it believes itself to be. Sincerely,R.

  • :D Hello,, I havent a clue as to where you should go to recieve the attention that you seek. What i could do is share with you about something called wheat grass. It's been said that a glass of this is eqivelent to ingesting two or three vegetables in one sitting. "very" benificial! Try this & then after a couple of months see how you feel, don't forget it's of no value if you don't use it. As Always, In His Service.

  • I am sorry you had the negative experience with acupuncture. Unfortunately, there are bad practitioners out there just like any other field. Asian practitioners are notoriously agressive in their techniques, and treatments can actually be painful. I studied with mostly Chinese Doctors (and yes, a lot were Western trained medical doctors from China who couldn't practice medicine in US due to our somewhat stringent laws). I do not believe their "no pain, no gain" approach is the best one, especially here in the US. Still, I believe it would be helpful and the herbal part especially so. It is important to find a good one who has had the full training (mine was four grueling years of graduate study)Best to you,Doctor of Oriental Medicine
