I am a single dad of three so my limited resources have prevented me from spending the money to pursue a formal diagnosis. My doctor has been telling me that he believes that I have a mitochondrial disorder and I have been dealing with neurological, and muscle problems problems for 3-4 years now. For the last year, I have been on the "mito cocktail" which seems to help with the neurological issues and that, combined with clean living ( I've been vegan for three years) I have been managing very well with relatively minor disruptions in my life. Here is where the Autoimmune theory enters the picture. Last week I decided to concede to a craving and have a steak dinner. I was overwhelmed the next day by muscle pain and fatigue and I literally spent the whole next day in bed sleeping. I am an always moving type of person so this was highly unusual for me. I know that this sounds crazy so I haven't mentioned it to anyone but my fatigue and aches have been ongoing for over a week now. I feel that my decision may have wiped out years of progress and that I have suffered a huge set back. Does this mak any kind of sense to anyone?
