Lip skin problems and body weakness

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello people,

I need your opinion on my case. It’s kinda complicated and might be a mixture of syndroms/diseases/disfunctions, and I’m just about to visit a doctor, but you know how doctors are, they will try to tell me to wait and take some pills and that will be about it. And I also want to know what to ask about as well.

The first thing that bothers me is described here:

https://patient.info/forums/discuss/skin-disorder-on-lower-lip-373510

Although, I visited a dermatologist a few times, i've been through biopsy, nothing was found, I tried tens of cremes and balsames since the visit. No result. I've had this on my lower lip for 2 years now.

Next problem is that I started to be really weak about three to four years ago. I wake up every day with a muscle pain, like I just came out of the gym, and I'm never rested. I have some concentration problems, I cannot focus at school like I used to 5 years ago (im 23). My immune system is weakened - when I wake up in the morning, I have sore throat and I feel like I got a cold. I'm 'foggy' all the time, cannot talk to anyone for more like 1-2 minutes without losing interest. From what I read on the internet, it could be more things f.e. chronic fatigue syndrom. I don't want to make myself a living dead man, but I really don't know what to think.

Another problem that I had I think 1 year ago was that I have been diagnosed with a small yeast overgrowth, I wasn't prescribed anything because my results were at the edge of normal levels but for a few years I've had a white (washable) coat on my tongue. It got me scared a bit as I never seen anything like this before.

Also, three years ago, my sweat started to smell weirdly. I always sweat a lot, ever since I was a small kid, so I think that's normal, but in past years when I wake up I have to change my clothes immidiately as it stinks a bit like urine. It's the same when I'm at work - I need to shower 2-3 times a day in order to stay fresh.

These are the problems that I've had, now I'm not any professional and I am planning to see a doctor, but it's a lot of things that I just wrote and if there could be any connection between them, I would like to know so I can get straight to the point when I come to doctors office. 

Any ideas what should I request to be tested for?

Thanks very much in advance for all responses.

    What is your diet like? Do you drink enough water? You could be vit D or B12 deficient which could cause muscle pain.

      Not sure if everything is linked, but I have the sweat problem with no medical answer. If you have a fungal overgrowth then that can make you very sick. This is where I would start. Do you crave sugary things? If so it could be fungal. Don't feed it by eating a lot of sweets. Try to eat a balanced diet and get to the doctor. You may need an antifungal medicine, these kinds of things are difficult to get rid of.

    Hi - You might want to suggest to the doctor that you be tested for H pylori infection. It is associated with ammonia in the sweat. I was tested for it as a stool sample and had no idea I had it, but it was causing a lot of problems for me. Good luck!

    My diet goes like this: cereals for breakfast, milk, eggs, peanut butter, nutella, salmon, chicken meat, some frozen pizza/other oven meals during the day, veggies.

    I drink as much water as i need, i barely get dehydrated. I take multivitamins every day. I think im gonna ask for one more fungal test.
