Extreme fatigue, headache & lassitude after 3 to 5 hrs after each meal with lots of intestine gases.Hi,
I am 40 years old, male.
My current problems are - extreme fatigue, headache & lassitude after 3 to 5 hrs after each meal with lots of intestine gases. After passing of gases or going to loo (sometimes) relieves the fatigue (after an hour). Due to that it is affecting my sleep (sometimes insomnia, sometimes disturbed sleep or sometimes 6 hrs good sleep).
My brief history is as
I have G I disorder 15 years back. I have done endoscopy, colonoscopy, ba meal test etc. Results were Gastritis & GERD. I took an allopathic treatment for 2 months at that time but nothing happened. I neglected this disease & started focusing on my work. My work was completely havoc for my stomach like irregular eating, sometime no eating for whole day, insufficient water intake. I had habit of alcohol consumption, smoking & chewing tobacco too. This lasted for at least 13 years. But nothing pains in my stomach except flatulence etc.
I quit smoking 5 years back & chewing tobacco 3 years back.
2 years back, sleeping trouble started on the day I consumed alcohol. First it was disturbed in state. I continued the drinks for 6 months (frequency at that time was 2 drinks - to 3 times in a week). Gradually the sleeping pattern disturbed a lot.
1.5 years back I went to Himalayas for trek for 15 days at very high altitude. For 15 days, it was very severe headache, insomnia & high altitude sickness. I neglected the same thinking it will be temporary state due to high altitude.
After I returned back, the headache & disturbed sleeping continued. I quit alcohol consumption strictly from that day. I didnt realized what happened to me & done all test including brain scan, endoscopy, colonoscopy, all blood tests etc. I didnt got good advice of medical practioner due specialization in each field & throwing me to other specialists for next diagnosis.
After that I started doing course of meditation, Vipassana & Pranayam (not at the same time). I have an inclination toward spiritual side & spiritual readings from my young age. I used to meditate & do pranayam (not frequently) for my age 30 to 35. I have done reiki courses in young age.
But after doing lot of work in that meditation field nothing happened .sometimes the situation worsens due to pranayam. Some practioner said that it is due to imbalance of charkas in your body. Some said that it is due to dysfunction of glands in brain.
I complained to every doctors that I have a severe headache, fatigue 2 to 4 hrs after eating, flatulence, insomnia & loss of energy .but every doctors treated there parts as different entity & nobody treated the body as a whole ..finally they came on decision that this is a psychological disorder.
I have taken the the bloody antidepressants, antianxiety medicines & sedatives for 8 months. This caused new problems . I felt like anxious which I never felt in my whole life. I cant exercise, cant do pranayam, and cant meditate due to side effects of these medicines I told my likings towards spiritual side to psychiatric I am feeling anxious (sometimes hot flushes) by taking these medicines but they told that I need higher dose & gave me higher doses. But my situation got worse. At last psychiatric told me that we shall curtail doses, do a body checkup & quit doses after some time. From that day I quit all these medicines & I feel relieved.
But my problem is still going on Extreme fatigue, headache & lassitude after 3 to 5 hrs after each meal with lots of intestine gases & Insomnia.
Meanwhile I have tried different supplements of B12 & B complex, multivitamins, Aurvedic Nerve tonics like Bramhi, Gotukola, Shankapushpi, St Johns Wort, Aswagandha , done therapies like Nasya, shirodhara, massage etc but invain ..Tried water therapy, Wheatgrass juice therapy ( for 15 days) for stomach but invain.
All this happens irrespective of diet I eat.
15 days back I fasted for 4 consecutive days (only on juices), all my symptoms vanished away except some body weakness.
Till last month I was no knowledge of homeopathy. From last month I am taking treatment with leading homeopath. Sometimes I felt like impressive improvement & sometimes I felt like situation worsen. The homeopath is giving me mother tinctures & powder.
I & My family got disturbed due to this illness. I have to agree that I have some anxiety about disease & self talk about illness I think which is a cyclic chain to increase my illness. (I have no anxiety & problems in my routine life All is Well)
Is this disease is curable? Is it an abnormal illness? What will be the medicinal plan & necessary natural remedies?

One should try to be in the mode of vipassana meditation forever and not only when one sits specifically for meditation. Mind can't be calmed down so effectively by homeopathic medicines as it can be by just observing it and understanding it's transient nature.
Sometimes sadhaks of vipassana get confused between transience of the material world and the law of karma. No doubt the material world is transient but the law of karma is the highest truth of this transient world.

In this illness I am watching myself....the way my thinking changes after 2-3 hrs after meals ( no problems of change in thinking when i am on fast).... my brain chemestry changes automatically after 2-3 hrs after eating.... I always try to witness it...I doubt that fatigue is on emotional or mental plane but it feels that it is on physical plane....... Also this is not always the case......I am sorry, I forgot to mention earlier that this happens sometimes say some % of times. Other remaining % of times I feel very calm, quit, energetic & refreshed....It is without any reasons.... I am trying to keep track what I eat & what happens.....sometimes I eat oatmeal in breakfast I observe very flatulance in stomach ( everyone tell me that oat is very good for stomach) & severe fatigue in that noon. Also when I eat only rice it is not so fatigue in that post meal.
I agree with you that mind plays imp role....but I mentioned my history by observations which are at physical level.
Till date I have not got good advice about physical symptons I am observing. I am expecting some more guidance from you.
I will continue the medications I am taking right now, but I am hoping some more help from you to just throw some lights on any hidden interconnections if any.

Nat Phos 6x dose 3-6 tablets taken immediately after a meal.
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose to help rebuild the inner lining of the esophagus which is usually badly eroded by the gastric juices which refluxed up to the throat.
