  1. Hi all, I had an interesting idea recently after again noticing my symptoms seem better after a night of drinking/taking nervous system depressants- has anyone considered that the underlying issue is an overactive sympathetic nervous system? Symptoms of this include: chronic fatigue, exercise intolerance, food sensitivities, anxiety, depression, numbness/tingling, irritability, anger, heart pounding or arrhythmia, adrenal fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, sweating, impotency, candida, high blood pressure/heart disease, and the list goes on. This pretty much covers every one of our symptoms. I sent a message to my doctor about potential tests/treatments and am waiting to hear back, just thought I'd throw this idea out there. Hope everyone is doing well (as can be expected). Cheers EDIT: The more I read about autonomic neuropathy/dysautonomia the more it fits the bill as a progressive disease that accounts for all of our symptoms. Unfortunately the prognosis is not always great, but I am going to be in communication with my doctor and will report back any info I find. If anyone else has any insight on this, please feel free to share in the meantime.
  2. I discovered this treatment online during a research binge, but had not heard whether it was efficacious or not. That is very good to hear! I definitely recommend having cortisol/DHEA and all related hormones checked if you have physical symptoms related to libido/dysfunction. Thank you for this information and please do keep us updated on your progress as you undergo DHEA treatment. Cheers
  3. Hi all. I'm glad to see everyone is still persevering and fighting the good fight/doing research like mad scientists. I'm not so glad to see it doesn't appear that with all of these studies, we're any closer to an actual, available cure. I've been gone from the forum for a while because once you realize you can essentially cure yourself by eating a clean diet/using portion control, the elusive why and complex studies stop mattering and you're simply well. The most important thing I can say to all of you is to change your diet, eat better, and eat less if you want immediate results. I personally believe it's a leaky gut type issue, caused by an unknown underlying condition/damage, and the best thing you can do for yourself, today, right now, for immediate results, is not eat more than your stomach can hold, and try to eat a diet like the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or something similar that was developed for conditions like this. Once you establish that, you can play around with it and see how much you can get away with. Almost all symptoms can be relieved this way. We'll still have the underlying problem, but this controls it almost completely. That's all. Be well everyone; cheers.
