What I am seeing here from all these posts is that all of you have a feeling of elevated fever or feeling hot on your skin without the proof of a fever. I have these symptoms too.
I also have GERD, herniated disk, arthritis, IBS, and other common symptoms the same as the rest of you all. I have a strong gut feeling that if we all changed our diet to include vitamine and mineral supplements along with NO SUGAR OR JUNK FOOD and meats, proteins, vegetables, but limit the sucrose sugars too plus we exercise every single day then we may feel better.
However, that may not reverse or completely change our auto immune issues linked to our bones, joints and digestive problems (actually I think our digestive problems are caused by our bone and joint diseases, including arthritis, back problems, scoliosis [I have], auto immune issues also including rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune chronic ideopathic urticaria (ongoing hives that have no known cause but must be suppressed with medications like zyrtec and hydroxizine [for me]. I think I am on to something here, or maybe I am on one to many of something for my stiff joints, crooked finger joints, joint nodules protruding and joints in fingers locking up, joints in toes aching and feeling stiff and cracking, neck cracking and stiff, etc. Yes, advil is my friend but with GERD it is not but is my friend--a true enemy turned friend with all the cracking joints and stiff achy joints and muscles in fingers and toes.
Our low grade "fever" I think freinds, seeing as all you have herniated disks and what not that can contribute to GERD and IBS, think about seeing a doctor to test for what type of arthritis you have--rheumatoid or osteoarthritis and how changing your diet and what exercises can help you. Think smart health that is in your hands that YOU have to take control of since most doctors only give you 20 minutes or so of their time once a month or so whenever you see them.
You are your own best advocate. Sleep well tonight knowing this: you have the power to change your life and it is in your hands and you are most capable of helping yourself so don't lose the opportunity and educate yourself and advocate for yourself about finding out about your illnesses and treating them with the best care there is. God be with you all!
