Nov 27, 2018 · Chronic Mono? 5 years undiagnosed in Autoimmune Diseases

Thank you. What type of specialist should I be making an appointment with?

Nov 24, 2018 · Autoimmune? Undiagnosed and don’t know where to go next in Autoimmune Diseases

Hi, I'm sorry you are suffering, I hope you get a diagnosis soon. For now, get off any processed food/liquid items, dyes, GMO food, any items that have parabens, dye, fragrance, hygrogenated oil. Only drink filtered water, natural fresh juices. Cut back on animal products including dairy. If you do eat animal products at least find hormone free, antibiotic free. I saw an allergist who can't diagnosed me but gave me all this same list. It helps cut back on the conditions you list. Honestly, it's hard to do because we are surrounded by all these toxins. Most of us have autoimmune issues I think because of chronic inflammation we unknowingly inflict on ourselves on a daily basis with shampoo, lotion, junk food etc. Good luck to both of us. Hope you find guidance.

I have been having "mono signs" (with no exposure) for almost 5 years: sore throat, severe fatigue, flu like condition without fevers. It is cyclical, lasts 3-5 days to the point I am in bed for days. I have given up most of my gym/exercise activities because I only have about 4 hours a day of productive time. I have seen internal and family doctors, endocrinologist, infectious disease, urology. So far they do not know why I have persistent: low blood count, high IG Immunoglubulin labs (700s) and kidney stones with bloody urine (that does not cause bladder infections). I am over 50, normal weight/BMI, normal blood pressure, normal blood sugar etc. but does not know who else to see. I get my annual physical with no other abnormal labs or tests. I'm not a hypochondriac and being dismissed with menopause does not seem to fit my condition. Need guidance to thrive, not just to stay alive. Thank you for your time.
