Severe digestive issues (bloating, food intolerances, pain, constipation) and chronic fatigue despite every treatment
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
At 13, began having severe digestive issues and chronic fatigue. Symptoms progressed over the years until I got so sick (name every symptom in the book- could barely stand long enough to take a shower from pain and fatigue, sleeping almost 24/7, losing vision and hearing, and more!) I was finally diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease at 21. Spent 6 years treating that, but still have symptoms. Deal with Hashimoto's, Dysautonomia, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. Chronic Fatigue, and Debilitating GI issues (sensitive to all foods, major bloating, constipation despite being on all the magnesium and several medications for motility, abdominal pain). I've treated parasites, candida, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, cut out every food that could possibly be a trigger, done every gut healing protocol out there and more. I feel best when I don't eat (more energy, less digestive issues etc), but that is obviously not feasible. I've done tons of Western medicine approaches and holistic/alternative approaches. Most days I wish I could just rip my intestines out (very much intestinal issue not stomach) because they cause so many problems.
