I was diagnosed with IBS by three doctors. Has both a Colon and an Endoscopy and all the other tests. ALL three said I had IBS. Well...4 months later it is gone! Have been normal for three months. Yes..I did alot of supplements and learned how my body works.
It all started with a death in my family and I was beyond a wreck. Could not get out of bed, shakes, etc. Somehow...I am normal now?
EXCEPT FOR MY HANDS. They FINGER PADS only are a wreck. They go from bloated ( like marbles are in my fingertips ) then to being wrinkled like an old man! I have had extensive tests for Reynauds, Scleroderma, A and A antibody tests, etc.etc.
Since this all began with a traumatic event ( this is when my hands went wierd on me ) I am thinking it is likely Chronic Fatigue. I was shaking, twitching, in bed, taking sleeping pills and the works. A week later my hands started looking like an old man? Now the FINGERTIPS go from wrinkled to bloated throughout the day. They also turn red/purple as well. The rest of hand is normal, it is just the finger pads of the finger?

I have been checked for Celiac. That was negative as were all other tests. I had candida thrush and I took medication for that about 2 months ago. I also am taking supplements for candida just incase it was not just in the mouth. I in fact tested possitive for Candida Ablicans in my stool a few months ago, but ALL of my doctors state that EVERYONE has Candida Ablicans. Also..that if I had it in my mouth, then it would then surely be in my stools ( what goes in one side, goes out the other) as they said.
Have you ever heard of fingers tips swelling ( like marbles inside ) and then wrinkling up like prunes in Chronic Fatigue? Just the tips? It is like fluctuating blood flow or something. They are either bloated, or shrivled up all day long. Just the finger tip pads only.
Is there anything that you have tried that might help this?
