    That is a good idea. I wish I had another GI doctor in my area.

    Have you guys looked up Dr. Morse yet? Maybe get on youtube and search for, The Great Lymphatic System.

    I'm going and try to avoid continuing to push this information out here, because I know that not everyone is going to accept it without resistance. But I could run down through your list of symptoms and tell you what's happening and why. But as I said earlier...."I could write a novel", and I don't wanna. Not to get too down on allopathic doctors...but the reason they have no clue as to what's going on is simply because....they have no clue. They aren't taught how to heal the body, the majority of their teaching is written by the pharmaceutical industry. So basically they are taught to diagnose and medicate to see if they can cover up symptoms for a little while until another one pops up....then they diagnose and medicate again....until eventually one day you wake up and your taking 20 different medications. And I'm only posting again because I know how bad it sucks to feel terrible all the time as it continues to get worse...and the doctors just keep saying...."hmm, well try these pills".

    If you follow the teachings of Dr. Morse I can guarantee that you will begin to feel better. And there are many others that have taught this throughout the years. I only mentioned him because he has a LOT of information out there with a competent group of people on FB helping one another out who have been in worse condition than what I've seen commented on here.

    And I've heard so many people say, "I would rather die than change my diet..." And sadly I've witnessed this over and over. But even worse than that is watching all those people suffer as they approach ever closer to that final doorstep. And I just had to post one more time because it realllly sucks to feel terrible all the time. Though, I try to avoid posting a lot about health and diet simply because, many times people will jump out of the woodwork to flame me when they've never even walked the path.

    There's only one route to health and there are no shortcuts. You simply have to decide if it is worth it to eat certain foods and continue to suffer and get sicker.....or learn how to improve your diet and eat what the body is designed for and feel fully alive and healthy. That which heals you will also make you stronger.

    "Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates

    Now I'm going to jump back into the shadows before I get flaming arrows hurled in my direction. LOL

    Totalfreedom, why are you worried about getting flamed? I think I may have missed your reasoning somewhere.

    And yes, through blood work. Although, now that I'm looking at this overdosing thing a little more and basing it on how long this stuff has been going on with you. If you did have an overdosage of Vitamin A, you'd probably be dead by now. I'm not so sure anymore. I'm running out of possible ideas.

    Join the club with my doctors and family, as well as Endiku's I'm sure! Maybe boucing our ideas off each other could help.

    TotalFreedom- no flaming here...I'm pretty much done with allopathic doctors. I haven't checked that guy out yet, but I'll do it! I just got busy and forgot, I'm not blatantly ignoring your suggestions, I promise. Someone could probably suggest that I eat cow dung milk shakes (please don't) and I'd do it (ok, maybe not...) at this point.

    Tempest- so either I'm incredibly resilient (sp?) or not ODing on Vitamin A. My guess is the latter, since nothing about me screams 'enduring.' LOL.

    Another thought: have you ever just had straight allergy testing done? Or seen an allergist?

    I haven't had the allergy pricks done, no. Should I try that?

    Your symptoms fit what I know about autoimmune diseases. I have several, and I have found that Dr.'s like to treat them as if they are all individual problems rather than from the same source. They're all caused by a fundamental malfunction of the immune system, and there is good research showing that if you have one autoimmune disorder, you'll get others. However, they are still all treated individually rather than treating the whole system. That makes me furious. I have heard of many people who managed to treat with careful diet and exercise. This doesn't make them go away, but reduces symptoms.

    I am mostly treated with a gluten and dairy free diet, but that's because I have Celiac disease, so avoiding those make my immune system less active and moderates my other symptoms. I know a healthy, whole food diet and exercise help, but I haven't got the time and money to keep up with it always. I still have migraines and monthly lady problems, but not as bad as before.

    I think that a natural doctor willing to listen to you and treat you as a whole person might be able to help. Until we have some serious advances in medicine, there are not any cures for autoimmune diseases. I think they can be managed if the whole person is treated. It's just a matter of finding what works for you. Even if you don't have an autoimmune disorder, I think treating the whole person rather than several sets of symptoms might be helpful. Above all that, naturopaths tend to actually listen to their patients.

    Have you ever thought about a type of parasite/bacteria? It seems like they can cause a variety of symptoms. I don't mean like the tapeworm kind, there are types that attack red blood cells. Or maybe Lyme Disease? I also suspect an autoimmune disorder with myself, I wouldn't doubt if that's your problem too. Unfortunately, it seems like these are the things that are hard to diagnose. Most parasite/bacteria type cases are diagnosed when the person ends up in the ER with some kind of attack.

    I hope you find what's wrong!

    We had considered a parasite and I think they checked for them back a year ago or so, but that doesn't mean I don't have one. I don't even remember what they did to check.

    I really do want to find a naturopath doctor. It sounds like a good next option. I think at this point though, my parents are done with paying my bills since nothing is being found, so I'm going to have to wait until I can pay for it myself.
