Fri, May 31 7:16pm · Autoimmune disease and temperature regulation in Autoimmune Diseases

While reading your words my heart sank. I was reading almost exactly my life. I too was 112 pounds or less all my life. I began having every symptom known to man, gained 55 pounds in 10 weeks. 10 weeks. How is that even possible? Sitting at 176 and it does not matter what type of diet or not… i know it is shocking, looking in the closet at your beautiful cloths and not being able to wear any of them. It is devastating to the ego. Not to mention dealing with so many symptoms that drs just pass you from one to another. I just wanted you to know- You Are Not Alone! Keep your faith, whatever it may be.

Good morning everyone I certainly hope that you’re doing well today. From the above, the only thing I can really gather is that it appears to be an auto immune “side effect” but from what, no one knows. In addition, it does not sound that there’s really any type of treatment to stop the madness. You don’t know how very disappointing that is for me personally. So many issues that I have appear to be that way – without answers. I am so hopeful that my upcoming trip to Mayo will enlighten me in someway. Certainly hope the cost financialky and the cist emotionally will be worth it.

There is a lot of hype about this currently. I have been a chronic pain patient for a decade now. I have tried both the oil and some ointment which ultimately led me to the conclusion they do not work on me. I have a feeling this result will be quite common for those who have been on opiods and other medications for long periods of time. I have often wondered if the THC is what would be of more benefit but the laws in my State and the contract I have signed with my physician prevent me from investigating it any further.

New to Mayo and thrilled to hear from others! Like many, I too have difficulty with temperature control. Within an hours time I can boil over in sweat that can not be cooled that transitions into goose bumps on my skin boiling on the inside while skin is freezing then transitioning to freezing cold that can not be warmed.
