My husband is 43 and moderately overweight. Over the past few years each fall and winter when the temperature outside goes below 70 or so he starts feeling sick. In general he is very tired all the time and has no energy. Most days he cannot go to work (self-employed as a remodeler) and when he does go he often comes home early because he is too weak. Sometimes he can sleep but at night he often cannot. He states he feels weird inside all the time, has chills and is weak. At night he has profuse sweating where the bed sheets become soaked. He usually has a low grade temperature. In addition but it comes and goes he has frequent heartburn, diarrhea and bloody (dark) stool. He has seen a specialist for chronic sinus infections and antibiotics (when we can get them) sometimes help but only temporarily. He has been tested for all the usual things such as H-pylorie, TB, Hep. HIV, etc. None indicated anything. He has hypoglycemia but this is under control. We have monitored his glucose levels but they do not correlate with any of the symptoms. We have also tried all kind of vitamins including Melaluca. We have also been to a chiropractor for some back pain and those adjustments did not effect the symptoms either. We do not have insurance so we cannot afford to visit doctor after doctor. We have to be very selective on what we do. He (we) is frustrated and refuses to even go to the local clinic now that we have been many times with no results. So basically at the moment we are doing nothing. (except praying for directions and answers) Can any one help or have any ideas on which direction to go next?? Thank you.
I too have night sweats and i was told I have a low form of sugar. I would like to tell you a few things I have found out. First ,does your husband eat after 7 or 8 pm. Tell him to stop eating after 7 for 2 weeks and also Do Not eat any carbohydrates ,pasta,bread or any dairy at dinner for those 2 weeks. See if that helps,It did me! Also I did not hear you mention testing for Lyme desease. Have him tested for that but you should seek an Infectious Desease Doctor for that test and the results not just the family doctor. Hope this helps keep me posted.I too can not get up or have strength to do things throughout the day . Good Luck
There are plenty of things any doc can test him for regarding his main problems from thyroid disease to the autoimmune disease like lymes and lupus or diseases such as MS. I do have one very simple suggestion for his sinuses though. With chronic sinus infections/sinusitis have him take a good antioxidant supplement every day. I too had chronic sinus infections/sinusitis and required antibiotics 3-4x per year minimum. Since starting the antioxidants routinely it has been 1 1/2 years since I have had any attacks that have required antibiotics. This is a very simple thing he can do that will have wonderful benefits.
