Leaky Gut With Nerve Symptoms?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been having this terrible twitching all over on and off for a couple of months now. It seems to be getting worse and I now have shooting nerve pains, burning and some pretty massive twitches (some that jerk my whole shoulder). Not liking this AT ALL.

I've had mild twitching on and off for a few years now but nothing like this. It seems to me that this whole episode was sparked when I took a course of antibiotics two months back. As soon as I took the first pill the major twitching started. That can't be a coincidence. So of course I've been scouring the net trying to find out what the heck could be wrong with me and I come across "leaky gut syndrome". I see to fit the profile pretty well and I've read that it can cause neuro symptoms for some.

Can someone please tell me how I go about getting diagnosed with this? Do I visit a naturopath? How do they test it? I don't even have a clue where to start....

Thanks :)

Going to a naturopath is a good idea, but you can also order tests online to check for leaky gut. I think you should start by searching for problems associated with antibiotics. They can have some strange side effects that can last for a while.
