Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Hi LittleMiss! It's me (Donna) from the Lyme thread! I was actually going to say that you should come over here, but I thought you might be afraid of the 1900 pages, lol!

Yes a LOT of us here have lyme, and many of us have more than that. I have the big three...lyme, mold toxicity and heavy metal toxicity.

Hi LMA!

I also responded on the Lyme Disease thread. Sorry I missed your original Lyme Disease post ... I would have answered if I had seen it. :) I've been out of town so hadn't checked anything here but this thread.

Does your doctor also think you have babesia? It sounds like a possibility with the breathing issues and heart palpitations.

Has your doctor tested you for coinfections?

Also, as already mentioned, there are many things that often go along with Lyme .... parasites, metals, etc.

Welcome to the thread!

Welcome LMA!

I'm one of the few that doesn't have lyme on this thread.

My family has some problems with metals but we've been doing some detox for the last 6-9 months.

I HAVE A DATE WITH THE ORANGE JUG!!!!!!! :D:D:lol:

....

Oh Happy Day.....sung with verve. :) Great news Donna.

And I'm glad to see you have good news too Rachel. :)

Hi everyone-

Hope you all don't mind but I'm kind of intruding your board.......

Nope, we invite intrusions. :)

Sorry to hear how wretched and scared you are feeling, I've been there as I know many others here have too. You are in good company. :) I actually thought that given your description you were able to be remarkably upbeat and thank you for wishing us well.

I am not today, I think that I was seriously glutened over the first three days in the restaurant by beer fumes coming in from the pub next door. I dropped six pounds, feel like I am going to start melting again. Has anyone else had a reaction like that? Yesterday morning I woke up and starting vomiting, at least four hours non-stop and my sweetie was thinking he should take me to the hospital, it was bad. Last night when I was laying in bed I remembered how I felt when I worked in the bakery and it struck me that my reaction was very much like back then, and then it struck me that I had been smelling beer for three days. :huh: Microscopic particles of gluten saturating the air that the fan I was standing in front of was sucking in.

Today I told the owner of the hotel that I would have to close the door between the lobby but even so I could feel myself reacting, I had been in the lobby for about fifteen minutes earlier and I am afraid that that was all it took, mmmmm I may not have a restaurant anymore. :(

On an upbeat note I spoke with someone today who is willing to let me use her commercial kitchen one day a week for $200.00 a month plus she will retail the treats.

I am not caught up, I will most likely not catch up, hello to all. :wub:

Oh Rinne, I'm so very sorry to hear about the inhaled gluten :( It would be such a shame if this prevented you from operating your restaurant.

Good news about the commercial kitchen, though.

I hope something can be worked out--I'll be thinking of you :)

Aww I'm so happy to have found you all! You are all so sweet and welcoming...and I can tell that you all are VERY wise as well :) I'm in good company! That makes me feel better just in itself.

Hi Donna, glad to find you on this board too! I love how you call what you've got "the big three". I happen to have those issues as well, with some bacteria here and there and a little sprinkle of viruses.

Hi LMA!

Welcome to the thread!

Thanks for the responses everywhere Carla! My doctor does indeed think I have babesia. I actually JUST got a phone call about an hour ago (well my mom did actually, since I can't get out of bed) from my LLMD, and he said that he got one of the lyme tests back, and that it's not the one that tests specifically for lyme, but it tests the white blood cells (I think?, like the celiac disease 50 something? Excuse my uneducated self), and it points SIGNIFICANTLY toward lyme, which I guess means one count was low or something...I don't know. I trust him though, and even though it's a terrible thing to have, at least it's a diagnosis.

And since I'm so unstable right now, he can't start treatment, but he DID send my mom out to Whole Foods to get liquid minerals, DHEA, B-50, and Yucca (???). This makes me VERY nervous though because usually my GI tract reacts HORRIBLY to supplements...and I really don't need one more issue right now...anyone have any experience on that one?

I'm sorry to hear that you think you've been glutened though. It sounds really unpleasant. I hope it passes soon!!!

Hi Little Miss,

It sounds like you are in good hands. I would start the supps one at a time for a few days so you know if you react to one and which one it is. I don't have to do that with supps myself, but I have an iron gut (or so I've been told, LOL). I'm sure Rachel will have something to say about supps and difficulty with them.

Since you mention your mom ... I'm wondering how old you are. :)

Rinne, I hope you are better soon! Could it be the stress that caused the reaction? (just hoping it's not really the beer :()

:lol: Yes, lazy Andrea. :P:lol:

Thanks, I have a feeling it is all going to work out. My friend who agreed to help me needed a job and he has been busy making the place his own, I can see him carrying on without me, which would be great and if I get my commercial kitchen one day a week for now that is perfect.

Also, the woman with the kitchen does catering for special diets, how perfect is that? And it is half a block from the restaurant which is in the area of the city that is really diverse and exciting. It is all good, except for the glutening of course.

And how fair was that? It wasn't a bowl of pasta with gorgonzla, cream and toasted walnuts, it was not a flaky croissant, nor a piece of thin crusted pizza with goat cheese and pesto......I'll stop now. :lol:

I'm 19, which is why it scares me that I feel like a weak 80 year old woman :P

And congratulations on your iron gut. That's impressive considering all of the toxic things in your body!

Thank you SO much, I will most definitely take you up on that when I'm a little more energetic. lol. Do you hang out on this board often too? So many great people in one place. So convenient. lol.

I'm 19, which is why it scares me that I feel like a weak 80 year old woman :P

My first Lyme flare that was bad enough to make it so I spent almost all my time in bed was when I was 19. My roommate took me to the ER and the doctor told me not to drink so much alcohol. <_< I had random symptoms prior to that, but nothing that disabling.

I spent the summer at my Mom's and couldn't find a job, so just relaxed in the sun all summer. I also did lots of aerobic exercise classes. By the end of the summer I was in remission. I did not know what was wrong with me, but Lyme didn't cause issues again until 1986, four years later.

It kept coming and going like that until this last time, where it just got worse and worse.

Just a year ago, my 87 year old grandmother got around a lot better than I did. Now, I'm getting around better than her again.

You'll get better .... LLMD's are good at this. :)

Haven't written in a while. Think of all of you often - as I am dealing with many of the same issues. Because of this thread, I stopped eating high oxalate foods and it really cut down on my pain as i have fibromyalgia.

I recently had to stop taking my thyroid meds which I have to take as I have Grave's and then radioactive iodine and am now hypo. I started getting a horrible reaction, anxiety, splitting headache, crying jags, tightness in the chest. After much research I found Dr. Larry Wilson who is doing hair tests on me. I am, I guess, a slow oxidizer and every medicine I attempt to try, I get a toxic reaction. I can do without Nystatin, etc, but I can't do without my thyroid medication. It is a catch 22 and horrible for me. My naturopath etc, had me on T4 and T3, but I can't take T3 at all anymore so I am dealing with a very underactive thyroid for 8 weeks now and have gained 15 lbs which is the least of my worries but still a pain in the you know what.

So, my naturopath tested my copper along with other minerals and metals from blood serum levels and nothing unusual popped up. Do any of you think the copper may still be the problem? I was very discouraged to see nothing but I am still holding out hope for the hair analysis.

In the meantime as I wait for the hair analysis, my naturopath and I discussed the philosophy of only doing treatments to boost my system as opposed to anything to subtract from my system. Any time I try to subtract, like Nystatin OR the h-pylori protocol with Mastica and a charcoal complex activated my IBS-, I get horrible reactions that make me sicker than when I started. The only subtracting that doesn't hurt me is the subtraction of offending foods.

Which leads to another subject. In terms of Candida, has anyone tried the Specific Carbohydrate Diet? I know that when I stay away from starches and sugar (of course, but it is hard) I do feel a lot better energy wise.

I know this posting is all over the place. Sorry!

Nancy

Thanks Carla, stress may have had something to do with it as I put in several long days, too much really but I think more the problem was that those long hours were in an environment that is toxic to me. This morning I was there briefly and starting to lose focus, I felt like I was being drugged.

And Little Miss I'm with Carla on introducing the supplements slowly.

Ggggrrrrr! :lol::lol::lol: No goat cheese please though.

NO, must have goat cheese. :P

Hi Nancy and welcome. :) Coming and going when you are able is fine to do, I do it myself. :ph34r: And as for being all over the place, welcome to that club too. :lol:

I know the Specific Carbohydrate Diet works better for me than other diets, as to the candida I am not sure because I think it includes foods like carrots that wouldn't typically be included in a Candida diet, sorry I don't think I am too helpful.

I am ambivalent about Candida, I know I have a problem but as long as I stay away from sugars it is minimal and Klinghardt has a theory that the body produces Candida to protect itself from the mercury that Lyme bonds with. I am taking the long slow road to healing and trusting that as long as I continue to see improvements I am on the right track. My theory is that with Lyme you have to trick it into submission, I don't think we ever entirely rid ourselves of it, my feeling is our is challenge is to become strong enough that it doesn't interfere.

My concern is that Lyme may already be systemic within our world and that it is only one player in the decline of our health. A diagnosis is one thing, treatment needs to be individual. It is an incredible organism with the ability to mutate within our bodies and hide for years waiting for the right moment of stress to leap free again, just as Carla described.

And part of becoming strong is knowing that you are not alone in what are sometimes desperate moments, believe me we have had a few here and some left us rolling in the aisles, like the time that Floridian fell asleep with a bag of frozen spinach on her stomach, I had suggested a cold pack might help numb the pain, and during the night the bag opened and the spinach came out and when her hubby woke up and rolled over in bed he rolled into it. :o:lol:

Thanks so much for the encouragement and words of support. I really need it as we all do. I do feel overwhelmed especially today. I had a consult with my Naturopath last night and we discussed some OTHER things I may have going on - like kidney problems and even though I tested negative for Lyme by Igenex, she thinks I have it anyway and wants to see the blood results again.

I agree, as long as I am feeling a little better everyday, I am on the right track. But I do feel that it is two steps forward, two back sometimes and again, it is all so overwhelming. What i haven't included in my signature are all of my hormone problems, endometriosis (My Gyn wants me to have a hysterectomy it is so bad) and ovarian cysts, so even when I am having good days, once my period comes, that is guaranteed to be about 10 days of bad. And it is approaching, so I get more sad on those days.

I also agree about the Candida. Everyone has it to some degree and trying to get rid of it with Nystatin is too agressive for me right now. I just have to be stricter about sugar. Because, I don't eat nightshades, high oxalates, soy, casein, nuts (except for Almonds), gluten of course and yeast, sugar is one of the only luxuries I would give myself...not even so much for the sugar component, but for the food groups it allows me to eat like dried fruit, sorbet, but I know these are all bad for candida. Maybe I will try re-introducing a food group and take out all of the sugar!!

Thanks so much for writing back. It helps me. I hope I can help you all some day. Sometimes I feel that when I have helped someone, it helps me.

By the way, I don't know how to find this thread all of the time. That is why I only write sporatically.

Thanks for sharing that Carla...I feel terrible that you had to feel like this too at 19, and then go through it again, and again...yet I'm kind of relieved because it helps to know that I'm not the only one, and that there's hope!

SO glad to hear that you're movin a little quicker than an 87 year old now ;)

You guys are definitely right about the supplement thing...I'm going to go SUPER slow because for some reason, certain foods and supplements (almost all of them actually...) kinda shut down my digestive system. Just seems to not want to function AT ALL. I suppose it's easily confused (kinda like my brain right now).

Anyone experience an enlarged spleen? How about white spots in their throat? It's so weird how symptoms seem to come in waves, and every wave brings something different. How lucky am I. What pleasant surprises.

OH and before I forget (again), is there a certain diet that you should follow when you have lyme? I know everyone's sensitivities are different but I was wondering if there was perhaps a certain direction I was supposed to go with diet. I eat the same exact thing everyday since I'm so limited, but maybe I'm missing something or you know, doing something wrong...

OH and before I forget (again), is there a certain diet or way of eating that you guys tend to follow, or one should follow with lyme? I eat the same exact foods everyday because they're my "safe" foods, but I know that might have to change based on lyme related needs....

Rachel, do you still have to make an appointment even if the IV is quick?

Yeah...DMPS by itself is quick but you have to make an appt. for every treatment. They actually prepare all of the IV's (for the day) first thing in the morning.

If you ever need to cancel you need to do it the day before....once they prepare your IV you'll have to pay for it. I think you pay half the cost if you miss your appt.

I did this once because something came up and I REALLY didnt want to go to my appt. :P

I paid the fee and the girls were like "OMG Rachel...why didnt you just call and leave a message?? As long as we get it before morning you wont get charged!"

Yeah but my brain just doesnt think quite that logically...plus I'm a major procrastinator. :rolleyes:

So, my naturopath tested my copper along with other minerals and metals from blood serum levels and nothing unusual popped up. Do any of you think the copper may still be the problem? I was very discouraged to see nothing but I am still holding out hope for the hair analysis.

I had a red blood cell test for copper levels...I think it might be a little more accurate but since you're getting the hair analysis that should also give you an idea.

Metals wont necessarily show up in blood. For mercury a blood test is pretty useless and it doesnt usually show up in the hair analysis either. A person can be extremely toxic from mercury and there is usually no evidence of it in these tests.

You can tell if mercury is a problem by looking at the essential minerals in the hair analysis. If alot of them are out of balance its an indication of mercury toxicity.

In terms of Candida, has anyone tried the Specific Carbohydrate Diet? I know that when I stay away from starches and sugar (of course, but it is hard) I do feel a lot better energy wise.

I do feel better off of starches but I have worse reactions to many of the allowed foods on the SCD. I did not do well on that diet....it was just all wrong for me. :(

:) I think the Specific Carbohydrate Diet allows honey, I make fresh ginger tea with a little honey and it helps my cravings for sweet things.

I agree with you about the two steps forward and then back again, sometimes it seems like three steps back. :( A year and some ago I spent most of my time horizontal because of the pain, a good day was doing the laundry or making a pot of soup. I know I over did the first three days at the restaurant this week but a year ago that would have been impossible.

I think there can be a set of circumstances that tips us so seriously toward illness that it appears as an uncontrollable slide but that through changing our lives in all the ways we have to to set our health as a priority we can change the direction we are going and move towards wellness. To do so, depending on how ill we are, may take time and it may seem that we will never be well but we have to have confidence in our bodies resilience and our true desire for life.

.....

OH and before I forget (again), is there a certain diet or way of eating that you guys tend to follow, or one should follow with lyme? I eat the same exact foods everyday because they're my "safe" foods, but I know that might have to change based on lyme related needs....

The general consensus is a diet high in protein is helpful, our scientific Rachel may answer with more information, also obviously one that avoids sugars, processed foods, etc.

Its sooo WRONG!! <_<

You know I found the :wub: sign a little funny to use on a board, being Canadian we tend to be somewhat reticent about showing our feelings. :ph34r::lol: But I just realized it really is not the love you get, who wrote that song? it is the love you give and everytime I tell you I :wub: you my heart is warmed.

I consider it a strong message to the Lyme bugs who love the cold (did you know that Lyme has the ability to lower a person's blood temperature?) that there is no place for them here.

I agree, stupid beer fumes. :lol:

Yeah...lots of pleasant surprises. :rolleyes:

I actually dont get too many surprises these days...its just the same crappy symptoms. :rolleyes: I think at some point I ran out of "new" symptoms...I think I've pretty much had them all by now. Its been a blast these past 5 years! :P

I eat the same exact thing everyday since I'm so limited

I eat the same exact foods everyday because they're my "safe" foods

OMG...are you my twin?? :blink:

I eat beef and peas....EVERYDAY.

Sorry for the lack of scientificness tonight. :ph34r::lol:

But yes....now that you mention it....protein (as in animal protein) is very helpful and provides the amino acid chains which are essential for detoxing heavy metals and other toxins from the body. Hence all the beef I eat...EVERYDAY. :lol:

Hi rinne, what a treat to check in and see so many posts from you :D

So sorry to hear you have had such a terrible reaction, I hope you get back to feeling like yourself very soon!

Welcome Little Miss Allergy, looks like everyone covered your questions pretty good. And don't feel you are intruding please jump in.

Like Rachel said most everyone in this thread is going through or has been through the same (or variations of the same) thing you are going through.

Lots of good people here, and good info.

Hi and welcome to Nancy too :)
