I have a condition called cerebellitis and it is like the yellow fever or the black death of its’ day. It’s almost impossible to diagnose because the origin is so incredibly minute that it’s difficult to comprehend. I was struck with the condition two years ago and it hit me like a ton of bricks, with no cure in sight. All of my muscles began to rapidly deteriorate and I was in and out of the hospital for over two months. I was seen by over 20 doctors and at the time, was only able to rely on my sense of smell. So, the illusion of being able to feed myself again, walk again, and even hold my head up with my own power seemed impossible. I’m now on the other side of that life and death situation and am able to walk and get to work again, but I wouldn’t wish that hell on my worst enemy. And yet, through all of this, I couldn’t eat, could barely drink, and through my recovery, I began to experience bouts of back pain and extreme nausea. I decided to give up gluten as a result, but I have had subsequent occurrences. Are there any other lifestyle changes that you all could recommend that might help this condition or do you think that this is another condition all together?
