    cannot figure out what is wrong with me, + doctors dont seem to care

    Please somebody help me figure out whats wrong with me, I've been trying for 5 years to figure it out and I'm still no closer to finding out. Here is some info about my problem. I have had a lot of tests at the doctors, e.g blood glucose levels, iron, thyroid, testosterone all that sort of thing and all were normal.

    I was born with this problem
    My mother has basically the same problems I do.

    Symptoms :

    Constipation + hard to pass stool
    sensitivity to coldness
    fatigue/lethargy/majorly struggle for motivation
    stomach bloating
    low moods + easily irritated
    behavioural problems through school + constant social problems throughout life (saying things and later looking back and wondering why i did)
    a feeling of being out of reality
    erectile dysfunction
    bad circulation (cold feet)
    cant stop jiggling feet sometimes
    sometimes i struggle for breath.

    PLEASE note, all of these symptoms worsen after i eat carbohydrates, and greatly worsen when i eat dairy products. so i just eat meat + veg and drink water.

    daily supplements i take every morning that help me :

    probiotic + prebiotic pill by PROBIO7 (helps with bloating etc a bit)
    boditronics omega3 fish oil 1000mg (helps with mental stability and social problems)
    COQ10 200mg (helps a bit with energy and motivation)
    L-glutamine 5g (energy + circulation + erectile dysfunction)
    Creatine 3g (energy + erectile dysfunction)

    At night i take ZMA (zinc magnesium aspartate) as helps me with energy and motivation in mornings.

    this plea for help comes from the fact iam sick to death of my problem and want to get rid of it once and for all, it is effecting my relationship with my girlfriend and havent ever been able to work. I have tried to the very best of my ability every single day to research the web for possible reasons and causes, and nobody seems to want to help! so please please please, if you can even give any insight or suggestion please comment on this thread. thankyou so much in advance.

    Lincoln, I would find a endrocologist (thryoid) doc and have him test your t-3 and t-4. Also have your adrenals checked.
    Test are not always accurate it seems for anything. And a regular g.p. is not a Thyroid or adrenal specialist.

    Even a naturopath might be good for those.

    I would also be tested for Epstein Barr and for Lyme disease. Those both would need specialist. Run of the mill every day docs won't know how to diagnoise for those nor to treat.

    One of the best labs to be tested thru is Ignex Lab, in Palo Alto Ca. You can find their info from where you are sitting.

    Of course none of us can diagnoise you, but it might be wise to be tested for those things The air hunger reminds me of Babesia. But things such as a virus or bacteria could be in your lungs also.
    Chlamydia Pnumoniae or mycoplasma Pnumoniae could be a problem also.

    Wish you luck in your search.

    I am not a doctor but I will say this. Get yourself to an endocrinologist and see if he will test you for something called multiple endocrine neoplasia... And it is hereditary so if it is that then that explains why your mom has the same issues.

    Again, I am not a doctor but please get checked out...

    Take care and keep us posted.

    After a lot of research and speaking to several experienced people I'm about 90% sure I have a candida overgrowth. Everything matches up. I'm going to take a combination of garlic, horopito aniseed and threelac along with the supplements I already take. I'll post again in 2 weeks to notify of any progress, thanks for the interest

    @Jodie, you mentioned the lab in Palo Alto is a good lab to go to. Do they have other locations? And how are they better? Thanks....

    Fitness Seeker, their testing is more sensitive..they specialized in Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella and other co-infections.
    BUT even their testing isn't 100% accurate...
    So the reason you need a LLMD...

    The info for Igenex you can find from where you are sitting. You can have a test kit sent to you. You just need a doctor to sign for the blood draw.
    The financial part of it you can talk with them about.

    Please take a close look at your testosterone levels!
    I had almost all the same symptoms, and suffered for years
    Before I investigated my lab results and the borderline low T results
    We're staring me (and many Dr.'s) in the face and NONE of them
    Put the pieces together!! The "normal" ranges labs use are
    NOT appropriate!! Take a close look at your numbers compared to your age!
