Trying to make this brief - At 7 I was treated for Scarlet Fever and developed allergies to EVERYTHING and childhood asthma (which went away around 14 yrs old). My immune system was seriously weekend and I continued into my teens have sinus/ear/chest infections and various colds and viruses 5 or more times a year. At 10 I had a bad case of Shingles covering my whole back. At sixteen I was treated for Mono, hepatitis and rapid strep all at the same time for six to eight months. Again, my immune system was weekend and I was then diagnosed with the following within a couple of years: IBS, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Myo-something I can't remember, TMJ, Mild Adult onset Asthma, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (basically an extra rib poking in my neck - don't think it's related but I listed incase), Eczema, Weird chest pains that the docs ran every test for my heart and cleared it (it might be from the extra rib but not sure) Chronic Sinusitis and Ear infections (5-10 per year still).
I was told at 21 I was eligible for disability mainly because of the Fibromyalgia. I could barely sleep or walk without pain. I fought my way to 26 and felt hope when I was running 6-9 miles a week, I lost 35 lbs in 4 years, I was eating healthy and drinking 64 or more oz of water everyday, watching my stress, taking my supplements.... I felt healthy. Then last summer I had a lot of stress - my hair started falling out - it's not anymore. But I started getting the sinus and ear issues.. the colds,... and then the mild asthma. I am now 27. I was admitted to the ER a couple days ago for a severe asthma attack. I found out the the black mold at my job that has been neglected since January might have been the cause of the severity and might cause more problems in the future. (I'm not going back) I was scared to death at the ER. I was hyperventilating and confused. I feel like all of this is related. Auto-Immune Disorder? Over the years I've been tested for a lot...limes disease, lead poisoning, I have been tested for Lupus 4 years ago -all neg. Also my rheumatoid levels were high and was never told what it was.... I will be seeking a specialist for advice, but I don't know what specialist? I have nooooo knowledge and am trying to learn as much as I can after this latest discouragement.
Any advice or counsel would be so appreciated. I went from hopeful and healthy to discouraged and scared. I am 27. I don't want to be sick for the rest of my life.
