Spent the last few months trying to get to the bottom of this, but think I am getting there and have so far pointed it to be celiac, lyme or candida. Maybe a defiency exists as well, generally I eat pretty well but I have heard magnesium defiency can be prevlant with parasites.
Currently I am awaiting some blood tests on allergies, autoimmune disease (ANA) etc. I have had full blood count, thyroid, kidney, liver and some basic ones already. After my current set I'm going to ask for lyme test as I feel confident it might be this now.
3 male and was in perfect health till a start date I can mark. I've made note of a holiday I went on which feels relevant now to symptoms I've been having.
I've had sinus problems pretty chronic since this started which really vary. Early days I had a lot of fatigue especially in evenings, even after really long sleeps. Haven't felt myself for a while. I haven't marked all the symptoms on the diary below, only the more prominent changes I've noticed. I have had other symptoms which have really flared up after eating which I might put to sensitivies that have arisen. I have had ECG's on my heart multiple times, even when heart rate was going really fast once, still put down to anxiety when I really know it wasn't. I felt like I was having a heart attack at times because it was not something experienced before.
January 4th - 7th
On holiday in Center Parcs which is a woodland getaway type place with Villas spread round a forest. I have heard lyme is synomnis for these.
February 4th - Started to feel run down throughout the day and had a terrible fever throughout the night. It mostly cleared by the next day, but still feeling rundown. Do not remember coming into contact with anyone with these symptoms e.g at work or people getting it after me.
February 5th - Very sore throat has gradually developed
February 6th - 8th - Sore throat cleared. Start getting bouts of tiny head pressure / metallicy taste in moth / slightly stiff feeling neck
February 9th - 15th
The mild head pressure at back of head became persistent and getting bouts of nausea, accompiend by tingling sensations / nerve pain throughout body, left top eyelid horizontal twitching and small muscle twitches, but mostly in hands / legs. Would have flare ups mostly midday. Went to doctors put down to anxiety. Had slightly numbness in cheek once which I haven't really experienced since. Only tingling in face.
February 15th - 26th
Symptoms felt like they had lessened but would usually get headaches midday and dinner, which were mostly situated at the back of the head, feeling pressure like.
Started to get strange heart rythmns, chest discomfort which seemed worse again evening and lunchtimes. Experienced acid reflux with pain behind sternum which was something again I've not experienced before, was bought on by lying down, which I know your not meant to do after eating, but something I never experienced before- so stopped this since.
February 29th - March 18th
Heart rythmns (feeling like flipflop beats almost) became apparent mostly after eating. Would often get a fast heart rate at times and feel breathless. Would always get a lot of discomfort after meals and I have tried keeping a food diary but it seemed really random what I could react to, I learnt so much about gluten sensitivity, histamine intolerance and multiple issues that could arise. I had a banana once and started getting itching all over or even having a sip of orange juice in the morning would experience this. The next week I suddenly would not. So the sensitives seem really random. I have always noticeably had more discomfort after meals which would be in the chest, muslce twitching would increase.
Discovered what look like pinworms in stool, started off with 1, but would become more regular with each stool. Went to doctors and had them cleared. I've never had these before. Could my comprimised immune system allow these to flourish?
Have ocassionally had horrible jerks that wake me up when I'm trying to fall asleep. Not like the ones you get before sleep paralysis, I've lucid dreamed a lot, but feel like it goes right through my body and have to grasp for air. Very hard to describe. Heartbeat in my ears before going sleep has also been noticeable.
I have taken vitamin tablets occassionally and noticed them getting stuck in my throat. Had also noticed a swollen tongue once.
Have started getting the pressure headaches at top of head again and chest discomfort which hadn't had after meals for about a month have started to come back. Nerve pain / tingling is very very limited now, was getting more of this early on.
