Here I am, as of today in my 60's, and still in Limboland.
Finished with my antibiotics (and probiotics) for suspected SIBO - and looking undeniably healthy...... skin good, hair shiny, gums not bleeding and, for the first time in 10+years, no sore mouth with split corners- all this is true.
However, constant vertigo/dizziness that I assumed to be antibiotic side-effects not gone (finished 2 wk course 2 days ago), nor the daily diarrhoea (which is the first symptom I would've expected to improve, if I have got SIBO).
Also obviously still got the memory, mood-swings, concentration and cognitive problems that make everything difficult: can't read a book or follow a discussion programme or anything with a complex plot, can't sit in a cafe or restaurant and focus on the one voice nearest to me, can't get back to full-time teaching...... so still injecting every other day in the hope that I can recover. From what exactly, no-one seems able to tell me.
Despite all this, having a rather lovely day today -and hoping my 60's will finally bring answers and a solution. Although from which quarter, I'm unsure.
No more tests or consultations in the offing, beyond a sign-off from Metabolics, just waiting on reports now.
