I feel foggy. Like I'm drunk, or hungover, or on cold medicine. Headaches, lightheadedness, fatigue.
This is my 13th year of this, and I have been worked up for EVERYTHING!!! I've seen MD's and Naturopathic physicians.
For a while I thought I had an autoimmune "sticky blood" issue, but top LA rheumy said no, and suggested maybe dysautonomia/POTS. Here is what I know:
-I have MTHFR/COMT mutations (can cause anxiety/depression)- on support.
-Had some mild adrenal issues, treatment yielded no significant response.
-I have tested all GI function and done every elimination diet challenge. Have SIBO/IBS but well controlled.
-I have scoliosis and had T1-L2 spinal fusion, so do have some pain, but manageable without meds.
-History insomnia very well controlled with Melatonin.
-History anxiety/panic- well controlled.
I have tried a variety of meds and supplements, and even weekly IV therapy without any significant response.
I DID have a 4 day period of "clear brain" back in Aug 2013 after the diagnosis with "sticky blood" and started aspirin. Felt literally "cured" but soon relapsed.
I take Zoloft 200mg PM along with supplements (vitamin D, hormone balancing, fish oil, etc).
I just don't know where to turn. I'm beyond frustrated and disappointed and looking for answers to this mystery.
