I have really come to a lot of discoveries in the past 6 months that have helped me understand my illness and why I became sick recently. With that being said, let me explain to you what I think happened to me and maybe you could offer up some good advice!
I fell I'll in 2016 with joint pain, joint cracking, heart pain, inflammation, food and environmental sensitivities that I didn't recognize at the time. I got a strange rash in October 2015 and a more clear "bullseye" rash in April 2016. After coming on this forum (Thank you very much
) I sought out an LLND and tested for lyme via Igenex. It was positive and for the most part I have been doing various forms of killing treatments since then. Oral abx, herbs, IV abx, dapsone, seen Dr H in CA associated with Igenex and currently treating with Kim F underneath Dr J in WA DC. I've tested positive for babesia duncani via DNA connexions.
This is where it gets interesting... I dated a girl back in 2014 that said she had HPV. I was scared of it and learned that there is a vaccine for it, so I chose to get the gardasil vaccine in 2014. It turns out there are massive side effects with that vaccine and many gardasil injured people fall ill with very similar symptoms to me. You can read more about
it here: https://gardasilsyndrome.com/
The vaccine causes leaky gut, histamine intolerance, pathogen reactivation, mast cell activation, and white blood cells invade the joints, which cause the joint popping (Probably because there are pathogens in the joints from reactivation).
To take it a step further, I was pretty much asymptomatic from my vaccine in August 2014 until November 2015 (I had early morning awakening that developed right around the time of vaccination, so I am sure it was caused by the vaccine and some sort of an important clue). I moved out of my parents house and into an apartment in mid-September 2015, which I suspect had mold because it had a musty smell and a leak from the upstairs bathroom to the downstairs kitchen ceiling. In hindsight, I suspect the strange rash I had in early October 2015 was a lyme rash as well, which means I developed my first sign of lyme disease only 2 weeks after moving into the moldy apartment! I moved out of that apartment in July 2016.
So, what is the root cause? Is it the vaccine? Is it mold? Is it lyme? Bart? Is it leaky gut and histamine intolerance caused by the vaccine, which made me sensitive to the mold in the apartment in the first place? I have never had a sensitivity to mold before this...
Of course the mast cell activation and sensitivities are caused by histamine, and I suspect that the chest pain that I have is related to histamine in some way. It seems to be worse when I am exposed to mold. When I am exposed to mold I get inflammation, pain, chest pain, and brain fog. When I eat foods that I am sensitive to ex: gluten and coffee, I get the same feelings.
I have tested for mycotoxins twice with realtime mycotoxin panel and the first was equivocal for gliotoxin, while the 2nd was negative. I didn't do sauna before the test, but I did do glutathione. Maybe it would be worth repeating...
I haven't noticed a tremendous improvement from abx over the past 2.5 years, so I am questioning if I am on the right path. In fact, while taking bactrim and dapsone, I noticed 1/8" thick ropey tissues developed on my connective tissues near my joints, which I think is some sort of reaction to the antibiotics. This is frustrating as I cannot really find anyone who has experienced this. I wonder if it is related to excess histamine release in the body when the lyme / co infections die caused by the vaccine over sensitizing the immune system.
I wondered if maybe the vaccine caused high heavy metals in the body contributing to my symptoms, but both my challenged urine test and hair test were negative for all metals. Still, I am drinking 1 liter of fiji water per day for the silica to chelate aluminum.
I am considering a detox clinic called Restore + Bio Clinic in St. George, Utah, which uses an advanced form of the patricia cane protocol and 3 colonics per week. I can post the proposed protocol below if anyone is interested. The purpose is to scrub the DNA and remove toxins that block detox and anti inflammatory genes from performing their duty. It's like a deep deep detox clinic. Website: https://restorebioclinic.com/
Right now I am doing the following:
Dr. J babesia protocol
Cholystyramine to bind mold toxins when not taking abx (So 20 days per month)
Zeobind for other toxins
Homoepathic detox for the HPV vaccine
Epsom salt baths
Ketotifen, singular, quercetin, and cromlyn sodium for mast cell activation
Permavite, l glutamine, and butyrate for leaky gut
Various supplements and probiotics
GCMAF cream for the immune system
Thank you, any other questions just let me know!
