Hi everyone. I am new to this board and was reading over some of the posts you all read trying to decifer my symptoms from yours. Please let me know what you all think

I am 24 years old and I have been suffering with wide-spread joint pain, almost constant Gastrointestinal upset, weight loss, low hormone levels, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, candida overgrowth, leaky gut syndrome and fatigue

I don't seem to be in THAT bad a shape despite the long list of symptoms because I pretty much get through my day pretty well. Wish my energy was better but That doesn't stop me from playing soccer and going out. I am never tired to the point of exuastion. I suffered several hypoglycemia attaks last year mistaking them for anxiety attacks so I was put on 10mg of Paxil. I am off that now and have taken dietary and supplementary steps at correcting the hypoglycmia which I have. I can go hours without eating and never sink. I still have relatively low blood sugar though. I am surrently fighting a candida infection which could be contributing to the adrenal problems. There is definitely a problem with the adrenals although I believe I have caught it in the early stages. I am currently on a program to rid myself of candida, heal the intestinal tract, detox the body, rebuild the adrenals, and rebuild the immune system. This is through a naturopath and hiw program is very comprehensive. I figure, I am going to milk theses natural therapies and get as much out of it as I can before resorting to medication if I really nead it. I am sticking with it because I am improving. I am a little scared though with all this weight loss. the doctor believes this is because of the candida/leaky gut. He says that the candida steals my nutrition and the leaky gut allows what is left to not be digested well leading to malabsorption. Just thought I would throw that in there. I think that I exausted my adrenals doing recreational drugs for 2 years. I smoked pot and used cocaine. I am not embarrased to say it. I did it, and it's over but it's worth mentioning because it may have pushed my adrenals too far. The only thing I am doing for my adrenals right now is taking 50mg DHEA daily and trying to practice relaxation 2x a day. ANy thoughts?

Thank,

Rich
