ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Brain fog, drunk feeling, severe fatigue, runny nose, every time after I eat. Body/muscles feel weak. I will feel totally lousy and hungover if I eat anything with gluten in it. My nose will often run an entire day if I eat too much junk food or some gluten or also if I eat too much probiotics. Some foods cause tension in my neck muscles, especially red wine. Others cause my eyes to get irritated and red between the iris and my nose.
My issues started coincidentally soon after taking antibiotics for an ear infection I had, back in 1995! I have been suffering ever since. I have tried many treatments and diets that are supposed to help "leaky gut" but none of them have really helped me. I usually feel a little bit better (10-25%) but never significantly better. I recently tried the carnivore diet and that does seem to help, but it is very hard to stick to only eating beef. I have tried taking prescription medication Elavil for “dysfunctional bowel” but that had no effect.
I also developed Vitiligo in 2003, and it makes me think this could be immune related.
I am now eating a diet of mainly beef, corn (in all its forms; whole, chips, popcorn), gluten free bread, butter, Activia yogurt, and small amounts of white rice, chocolate and ice cream.
No fruits and only occasional veggies, like onion and bell pepper.
The following tests have been done and all results came back normal/negative:
Endoscopy done and was normal
Test for Celiac is negative
Test for Diabetes is negative/normal
Fasting glucose test is normal
Blood work is normal
Urine test is normal
Stool test normal/no parasites
Bowl function is normal, once a day, no diarrhea.
HIV test negative
Dental xray of where my wisdom teeth were removed looks fine.
I’ve been to every type of doctor I can think of, Gastrologists (multiple), Allergy, Immunologist, Acupuncture, Chiropractors, Primary Care Physicians, etc
I’m not sure where to go from here or what to try, but I need my health and life back!
Thanks so much for your assistance.
