Fatigue, dizziness and brain fog - Long Post - Please help!

Hi,

For almost a year, I have experienced severe flu-like symptoms.

I am extremely fatigued and get tired after doing simple tasks. I get dizzy, mostly when standing. I am very foggy in the head as if there's a cloud over my brain.

My circulation is extremely poor and sometimes my hands and feet are ice-cold. My legs are always achy. My neck is always stiff.

My body temp is low (97's). I am also extremely thirsty, drinking about 1 gallon of water a day. My blood pressure is also somewhat low (90/50) so my osteopath suggested drinking water with trace minerals and salt. When I told him that helped, he told me it was an adrenal problem. I am now taking Isocort and Adrenal Support by Natra-Bio.

I am also taking sustained release T3 but cannot get my temperatures to stay steady.

This all began when I went vegan about a year and a half ago. I was at a very stressful job. Then, around last February, I thought I had the flu. It never went away.

I have started eating lean meats and eggs and dairy and am feeling better but I'm still unable to do much.

Can anyone suggest anything? I am totally new to all of this and the nearest homeopathic doctor is over 4 hours away (I forgot to mention -- I can't drive for more than 1/2 hour because I start to get dizzy spells).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. From the self-diagnosis software, I think Kali Phos might do me some good, but I'm not quite sure. Thanks in advance.

Jim

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Jim, think! What happened a year ago. Did you move? Paint the house? Street tarred? Any big time folage or bug spraying. New town, new water? Think and write more. Blessings, Sabra

Hi Sabra,

Thanks for your help.

Alright, one year ago... I can't think of any significant change other than starting a new job in January. It was winter and there was no bug spraying, no road paving and nothing chemical-related that I can think of. Do you think, perhaps, that my switch to veganism led to overconsumption of tofu and other soy products (ate soy every meal) hurt my thyroid?

No, I think you are protein starved. You may have become sensitive to soy, but one needs to take a long while to become a vegan. One must do one thing at the time and let the body adjust.

I have a lot of vagan friends, but they took years becoming what they wanted to be. One has to replace meats with natural amino acids. Most cannot live on Tofu.

Please consult a nutritionalist that knows veganism and go slowly. You sound like the condition of a prisoner of war. You have been too sick to see it.

One does not "starve" the body to control stress. Stress is of the mind. One can take many things homeopathically for stress.

Please take care of yourself and get strong again and revise your view of what to eat to stay strong and yet be what you want to be.

Blessings, Sabra

Jim, Your symptoms are all too familiar. They match my daughter's exactly. It took months - and a hospital stay (Duke) - to get a diagnosis, but we finally learned she is suffering from an illness known as Dysautonomia. If this term is unfamiliar to you, launch a search to learn what you can right away. There are wonderful resources available to help you understand your illness. The diagnosis will require a "tilt-table test". If you're experiencing tachycardia or chest pain, don't worry too much as that goes along with this illness and is due to your heart working so hard trying to move your blood around! Good luck.

Do you know your blood type?
Acc to dr D'Amato "Eat right for your blood type" group "0" (unfortunately mine) can't be vegans-we need to eat some animal protein everyday!

So now I eat a mix:
freshly ground flaxseeds (or Barlean flaxseed oil, high lignan) mixed well (and immediately) with lowfat cottage cheese (or yogurt).
All organic. That will give you not only animal protein but also the best oil. Read about it in thread "Fatty liver-permanent cure?"

It immediately gives lots of energy. let us know if you still have any problems.

Hi all,

Thank you all for all your help.

I do think I was protein starved, as well as anemic. Adopting a Atkins type diet and taking iron supplements have helped tremendously.

While I have not taken the tilt-table test, I do know that my blood pressure drops when I attempt to stand. The only site that I found that offered any solution was Walt Stoll's site which suggested Skilled Relaxation, a whole food diet and cardio. Has your daughter taken any other steps to combat her dysautonomia? What was the timeline for her recovery?

I am a Blood Type B and according to ER4YT, I do best with a balanced diet (which a vegan diet is certainly not).

Right now, out of desperation, I've been following a Blood Type diet mixed with an anti-candida diet.

Admittedly, I am feeling better but not recovered. I was hoping to look for some homeopathic remedies.

Again, any help is truly appreciated,

Jim

Jim, If you google Dysautonomia you'll find all kinds of sites, my favorite being DINET. It sounds that you may have a specific type of dysautonomia known as POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). While I am a HUGE believer and fan of homeopathic remedies (otherwise I wouldn't be on this site!), the symptoms you describe may well require medical intervention. In the interim, I would recommend you increase your SALT intake dramatically in an attempt to increase your BP. You are drinking a lot of water and while for most, that is a very good thing, in your case, too much water can deplete your salt level and exacerbate your symptoms. Try replacing some of that water with gator aid or the like. I am certainly no doctor, but I have been dealing with this illness since my daughter was 15 (now almost 18). When she was hospitalized, the first thing the doctors did was take away her beloved water bottle saying that her body had become "water addicted." They allowed her only a moderate amount of water daily and staved off her incredible thirst with ice chips. While there is no "cure" for dysautonomia, there are meds that can be used to alleviate some of the symptoms. In my daughters case, there are good days and bad ones, still, but she is far more stable than she was initially. Good luck. You're in our thoughts.

feeling better?

I am feeling better. It's reassuring that whenever I feel symptomatic, a glass of salty water helps a lot. In the Remedy Finder, Phosphorus came up. Any opinions?

Thanks,
Jim

Try not to be in a hurry for the magic pill. You need to recover in the body with foods and supplements right now.

Please, take Iron from the health store. Allopathic Iron is dangerous to the body.
There is actually an Iron supplement made entirely with vegetable source.

Lots of good water. Sealed water. Blessings, Sabra

You should check out NDRF.org. It is the national dysautonomia research foundation. They have an excellent discussion forum. You will find lots of people with exactly your same symptoms.

I have the exact same symptoms, i have been to many doctors medical & natural. Its actually complicated & seems to be systematic meaning it is involving many different systems of your body. These are the following problems they have found: severe food senstivities, immune system dysfunction, adrenal & thryoid problems, vitamin & mineral defiencies, heavy metal toxins, fungal & bacterial overgrowth, liver overload, low blood pressure & the list goes on etc. so not one remedy alone can cure it. It will take a systemic approach. I am actually been treated by 4 different doctors at the same time. this did not develop overnight so it wont go away that easily, dont mean to discourage you just my experience with it. And yes im still trying to get better. good luck.

DEAR GUEST USER...I am dealing with what you just wrote in almost the exact form. I had a hair follicle test done that pretty much sums up everything you just said is your cause. So I have 9 remedies, detoux to do. I am doing 2-3 at a time. Seems I should focus on the liver balance and the toxins detoux. Though it is so hard to deal with, it was nice reading that someone else knows what I go through...no one understands.

I think you are suffering from Dysautonomia but I would strongly recommend you trying the Jaffe Mellor Technique.
One's body can't never be addicted to water. The body needs more water because it is experiencing organ fatigue, inflammation, and toxic overload.
Take Care.

OMG! WOW! I've been going through the same thing and went Vegan too!!!! Can you guys help me on this. I have Dysautonomia/P.O.T.S., have been in and out of the E.R. and can't get answers, I feel like I might be a gonner every day. Is it really because of the veganism? I think I had dysautonomia when I was younger too w/stomach and head pains. I then became an alcoholic and then to the point where now I've been 6 months sober, but still can't stand and I'm just in chronic pain and chronic dysautonomia.

What could cause all of this?

Plz help, it's much appreciated.

WOW! I'm having the same exact issues! I was an alcoholic and went vegan. I've been sober, and have been diagnosed w/P.O.T.S.. Hmmmmm.... This is insane on how exactly accurate I've been feeling. Any pointers? How have you been feeling lately? Thanks.
 
Datiger 7 years ago
Please take Nux Vomica 200 in the morning and evening for 3 days and see how that affects in next few days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
