I'm surprised you didn't get a response to this.
I'm a Canadian (Vancouver) that suffered and managed to recover from an undiagnosed illness that was associated with a tick borne illness called Anaplasmosis. Also had a IGenex positive but CDC -ve Lyme test.
I would consider thinking about the following things:
1. Marshall Protocol
This is a controversial treatment that uses a high dose of a blood pressure drug called Olmetec. It transformed mee from disability to being able to work. Dr. Greg Blaney is the Canadian expert and is located in Vancouver
2. Get Tested to Identify Root Causes
Find a rock star Dr that practices functional medicine and ask for comprehensive testing to ensure you don't have infections, gastrointestinal issues like parasites, yeast, leaky gut, malabsorption or dysbiosis. Consider testing nutritional status that covers oxidative stress, organic acids, toxic exposures etc. to identify any potential underlying issues.
Unfortunately, many of these tests are not covered by the Canadian public health care system, although some of them are covered by group benefits insurance.
3. Start Treating the Problems One At a Time
Once you know what the issues are start to unwind them one at a time through lifestyle, diet, supplement and pharmacological treatments that you can work with your Doctor on. For diet specifically, I would suggest that you read the Wahls Protocol by Dr. Terry Wahls as a baseline dietary program for treating complex chronic disease.
By working with a small number of amazing physicians and implementing this protocol, over the course of 2 years, I've been able to go from not being able to work to skiing 40 days last year and mountain biking 2-3x per week. It's not an easy journey, but I believe if you're comitted and armed with the right information it is absolutely possible to make material improvements in your health.
If you want a reference for someone in Manitoba, PM me or respond to this message and I'm happy to refer you.
