** WELCOME **
I hope you find the answers you are looking for,
iIm not a Doctor, Im just another soul journer, on this path of life
I can share my own personal experience with you; as a Mom, wife, and one who battles health issues too...
I think I am in a FLARE up time now; been a very difficult 18 months for me also
I seem to have seasons of energy, and ability to manage tasks in a normal day, and then other times.. i'm dragging through what feels like SLUDGE , against somthing.. bogging me down
my lymph node in my neck... swell too // and ache as do my arms
when I was around 32 I asked my Doc to run tests for Lupus.... ( my birth MOm had Lupus & she wanted all us girls to get checked
they came back actually showing I had Sjrogrens, and high Rhumatoid factor..
I totally RELATE, to your story
mine started in late twenties
but I wasn't diagnosed till I was 33
Also Candida overgrowth will cause all the above symptoms
yeast overgrowth in our gut...
I am presently accepting that I may have that problem also..
and need to go DETOX
go sugar free, wheat free, dairy free for a few weeks
just to get this under control
Go see a Naturopath,.// homopath maybe?
our towns allergy speacilist he actually saw me & said
1st off its YEAST
that was 2 years ago
& I didnt like his answer
because I don't have female yeast infection problems
now I'm am sicker.. and I went to see a dietician since I have gained so much weight
is trained in natural medicine.. and.............. her first thought was
LEAKY gut. caused by ...... yeast/ candida overgrowth...
its worth trying... to see if I can regain health, energy
and feel better
I dont like sleeping all the time either, I wish I dint ahve to work - just to put a roof over my kids head...
i'm run down.. I feel sick...
being totally exhausted.... often feel like im taking my last breath
my lungs feel odd
and I am drained
is not fun
and many of our family doesn't understand..
because they cant FEEL what we do
they aren't in our bodies
I wish you the best
you will make great supportive friends on here & network..
let me know if you go see a homopath- natural path
IM convinced they will have answers for you
