About a month ago I was bitten by a tic , back in Jan I was tested for Lyme disease and the results were negative .I have been experiencing extreme fatigue , neuropathic pain especially in ankles and feet along with headaches , I was unable to bare weight on right ankle and attributed to tendonitis . I wear a brace to stabilize that ankle . My symptoms are vague but I feel weak , foggy headed and unwell . I am unsure as to which lab test to request .
I am having an MRE today due to fatty infiltrates of liver , at this point I am following Mediterranean diet no alcohol and exercise – 30 min at least five days a week. Exercise this winter is the hardest . Once I receive the results of the liver elasticity from the MRE imaging the treatment plan will hopefully be more specific . I researched that1/4 have fatty liver . There are clinical trials looking at how to delay progression of fibrosis
I will keep sharing what I learn because it is more common than I thought and it helps to have discussions
I am having a fibroscan this Friday and also have a fatty liver that may indicate need for biopsy .I too have been given the same advice ; I am just curious if your current lifestyle does include healthy foods and exercise , I have been health conscious most of my life but for the past few years had gained 15 pounds and less exercise so I believe those factors do make a difference. My sister is a dietician and I do know that liverfoundation.org has excellent outcome based recommendations .
I am interested in being part of a discussion group regarding the challenging treatment and psychological effects of this skin disorder ; my son was prescribed steroids in the past and now is dealing with the long term consequences of resistance and has ongoing flares , it has greatly effected his self esteem because he works with the public , people have also been unkind to him and have made fun of him
Our dermatologist has not been helpful with more aggressive treatments
