Can anyone advise would type of Dr. Would be appropriate for this?
    #15833876 - 02/19/12 09:04 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

To put it simply I'm dealing with some tingling in my finger, feet. My body just feels out right weak, when I stand I almost feel like I'm gonna fall or a sinking sensation almost.

The stupid thing is my doctor hasn't been able to figure this out, all we've found it is that I am vitamin D defiecient, but I doubt this is simply vitamin d defecincy plus I'm taking vitamins.

I'm afraid I might have some sort of muscle disorder.  I have had costochondritis now for months but never before has my body just gotten heavy on me like this, it's very weird.  I could be a little depressed sometimes but even so this much physical weakness I feel like something is up.  It's also hard to sleep. :sad:

Does anyone know what the right type of doctor could be for this?


Really any ideas would be appreciated.  I'm 23 and to say the least costochondritis has killed my year and made me much more solidtary.  If this can be figured out or fixed that would be a relief.

Thanks.

Try a neurologist first to rule out vpnervous system issues?

Guess that may work, it feels so physical though but guess that could be possible.

edit: reading on neurology it sounds like the right way to go.  Thanks

not that their standards make much sense but are you deficient or insufficient? what are your vitamin d numbers? are you the same OP who discussed costochondritis a while ago? if so can you direct me to that thread so that i can see the progression of your posts?  are you eating foods that can cause any type of inflammation what so ever?  low vitamin d can be playing a very important role in this.  i'm not suggesting this is your sole problem but vitamin d deficiency is one of the most serious to have in the long haul.  and MD's and researchers who i have great respect for are saying the 30-100 is low and that the high limit should actually be considered the low of the appropriate scale.  but this is just the beginning of the debate because the labs and the AMA have slid the scale over time, in other words lowering it over time to match lab demographics... if you are experiencing some sort of neuropathy maybe it is a good idea to see a neurologist, especially if your MD is unable to answer your questions or admits he/she has no answers.

you could have severe allergies to foods that a standard IgE test will completely miss.  you could have a delayed or hyper response and these two types of allergic reactions are completely unique from one another but the most common problem is delayed and if your eating the wrong foods your body will remain in a continuous inflammatory state and someone might finally throw their hands up in the air and label you with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome or something along those lines if no one can actually draw the right conclusion...

if it was you who posted in the past and i have a strong feeling it is you direct us to that thread and we'll try and go from there.

hey,  yea.  same guy.  cant find the anonymous thread but did find this one -


http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/15437802#15437802

Thanks for the help.  i'm actually trying to refrain from gluten to see if it helps but my bodies sort of been in pain all day and lately i fet this heavy feeling often when I walk around. tommorow im going to try to get an appointment somewhere maybe with neurologist or doctor that specializes in arthritis and fybromyalgia, etc.

For the vitamin d my doctor said its a little low and i should take 2000 IU a day.  Sometimes I may eat cereal or occasional chocolste but right now I'm not touching any of that. At the moment my chest feels so inflamed im not gonna eat much of anything till i figure more out. Right this second tho I've hardly gotten sleep in the past 24-48 hours so that mite be making it worse but certainly whatever i have seems to have progressed and I have a major headache today too.

i was prescribed moxicillin because of a sinus headache i has yesterday im actually a little concerned if its bad for my body but mite tske more later.

anyway Im guessing maybe fibro, chronic fatigue seem it could make sense. will see what happens i guess. well Im bout to try to pass out  :peace:

well when i said eventually you may be diagnosed with fibro or chronic fatigue i wasn't supporting the idea/diagnosis, it's just the nature of the prognosis of this type of final diagnosis...  both of these disorders are completely reversible...

and you yourself used the term "deficiency"... deficiency by allopathic standards means your readings were below 20 and i've already stated that the integrative's are saying that the 30-100 scale is wrong.  your doctor placed you on 2000 IU's per day for a deficiency when your body is capable of producing up to 10,000-15,000 IU's with a 15-20 minute exposure to a high output sun box.... my original vitamin d deficiency was 10 and i was placed on 50,000 IU's every other day and 10,000 IU's on every day in between for 3+ months and my d levels were recently retested at 78 or whatever... if you are truly deficient and your MD placed you on just 2000 IU's per day you are not being served well my friend, your doctor is completely clueless.  and to place you on amoxicillin for a head ache is beyond the pale, unless you honestly believe this is being caused by some kind of infection but this may turn out to be some kind of blessing as it will kill off any bacteria in your gut tract also which is good because i'm going to eventually suggest an awesome probiotic to build up healthy gut flora which is critical for combating any type of inflammation. it's not uncommon for someone with your issues to have an imbalance between good and pathogenic bacteria and taking an anti-biotic cleans house so to speak so that you can start off with nothing but the good stuff in place.  you can make an appointment if you feel you need to but you might want to wait a day or so until you find out what your vitamin d levels actually are.  at that point I'd tell you what I'd do if it were me and you can take this information to an integrative MD and see how they feel if you're not comfortable with my advice, which is totally understandable.  it's just that you've come this far and waiting a few extra days won't hurt anything in my opinion.

I mite might be able to know what my vitamin d levels are in the morning. Im gonna try to call the dr's office and see if they can tell me. Only reason I'm a little anxious maybe to see a specialist is cause it seems like it's gotten much worse in the past week or two and if it keeps up This way I don't see how I can really function.  I even missed a class last week cause besides maybe lacking sleep I was afraid if I walked to class I would've gotten that heavy feeling and just felt weird and unsble to concentrate the whole time.

It is a relief if those disorders can be reversed and even to find a diagnosis if it turns out to be the case would kind of be a relief to, so I have a way to get it all sorted out so to speak.

Also on the topic of bacteria I think I'm gonna start buying some yogurt, from reading up on amoxicillin it seems a lot of ppl say yogurt is good cause of the pro biotics I think, and they taste good, so that probably is something im gonna check out.

:peace:


edit:  I actually forgot to mention I did get an upper endoscopy and pretty sure nothing came up on it but do have a follow up appointment, not sure if the biopsies they did will show anything but will see what the Dr. says.  Do feel a bit better after sleeping tho.    Also gonna try to get sunlight whenever possible :sun:

i'm not telling you to do this but i would completely eliminate ALL sugar, dairy, wheat/gluton, red meat, soy and anything containing corn, especially high fructose corn syrup for at least 1-2 months. i know this sounds radical but the goal is to reduce inflammation and the only way to determine what your allergic to is to either find an allergist who is willing to perform an IgG as well as a standard IgE allergy test or eliminate every possible food that has ever been linked to inflammation.  once your balanced which will occur if you eliminate these foods you can begin to introduce each one back into your diet one at a time and wait at least two weeks because in all likelihood you have delayed allergic food reactions which is at the root of your kind of problems.  i had delayed food allergies and treated it on my own without being aware of this very common underlying condition, but the changes were profound when i decided to go vegan...

inflammation is the foundation of ALL disease and once you slip into a perpetual inflammatory state it's all down hill from there unless there is intervention... by eliminating these foods you are going to feel like absolute shit for 2-4 weeks depending on the level of food dependence and inflammation.  energy levels and possible head aches and increased body aches do happen in some but rest assured your inflammation will be being addressed right out of the gate.  right now we're taking a very educated guess you are inflamed to some degree because it is obvious but the only real way to accurately determine the level of inflammation is to have a c-reactive protein test done and not many MD's are willing to have this type of test done unless there is clear evidence or an existing underlying condition like lupus or chronic heart disease.  odds are you would test high on this test because even diabetics who can convince their MD's to do the test, test very high many times and are always on the radar...

rely on water, at least 8 glasses a day.  you can use rice and almond milk in place of dairy.  what is dairy?  poor protein, calcium and maybe a bio weak vitamin d? fuck that, dairy also contains hormones and anti-biotics and fucking puss because it's impossible for it not to be present due to the nature of factory farming, but it only contains a limited amount of puss the USDA will say.  they'll say we established maximum allowable limits in order to protect you!!!  plus the milk producing cattle were fed grains in place of grass which placed the animal itself in a perpetual inflammatory state and we drink it's milk and consume it's flesh...  YUM!!! as you begin to feel better you can introduce high quality cheeses and organic yogurts or begin to rely on goat dairy down the road just use it sparingly.  many vegetables are awesome sources of calcium like kale for instance or spinach although in order to get ALL of the calcium benefits of spinach it should be steamed to a degree...

Quote:

PROBLEM CARBOHYDRATES (refined and starchy) – one of the main causes of the problem!

·    no potatoes or simple sugars/carbohydrates (common table sugar, fructose, sweets, cookies, candy, ice cream, pastries, packaged fruit juice, soda pop, alcoholic beverages, etc.) you can use agave and natural honey to a very limited degree to sweeten things but at first it might be best to avoid them. Stevia is an awesome sweetener but you'll be shocked how little you need and you can cook with it upto 375 degrees i believe...

·    avoid grain products like breads, pasta, cornbread, corn tortillas, crackers, popcorn, etc and no refined grains/carbohydrates like white flour products, WHITE pasta, white rice, etc...

·    whole grains (whole brown rice, oat, rye, barley and buckwheat) only in very small amounts.




Quote:

GOOD CARBOHYDRATES (non-refined and non-starchy)

low amounts of fruit are OK but eat it with protein and other carbs and not alone.  NO DRIED FRUIT.

eat TONS of non-starchy vegetables. Raw or lightly cooked is best. These should be the main source of carbohydrates in the diet. Fresh vegetables are best, frozen is OK but canned is to be avoided except for canned tomatoes and sugar free tomato pastes and sauces.

legumes like beans such as navy, broad, butter, northern, pinto, red, pinks and black beans, peas and chick peas, green beans and string beans but limit the use of peanuts and peanut butter and if you use peanut butter use only natural as most mass produced have sugar in them  like i said, avoid soybeans, soy products at first and reintroduce them as a group on the whole after you're feeling better as i mentioned earlier




Quote:

PROTEINS

eat low to moderate amounts of seafood and fish. The best are wild fish, wild game, free-range chicken & turkey, if you must eat red meat eat range-fed beef, lamb, buffalo, deer but no pork. Grain-fed means more saturated fats and omega-6 oils which is WRONG. Wild and range-fed means less of these and more omega-3s. The more omega-3s the better and there's a great chance you've been eating tons of omega6 since it's a very common food additive because it's source is cheap and if you have an imbalance between omega3 and omega6 using more omega6 you are asking for inflammation. processed foods are so extremely high in omega6 it's fucking disturbing really because clearly the food scientists and nutritionists who work for these companies should know this!!!!  I'M NOT SAYING THEY ARE PURPOSELY TRYING TO TRIP US OVER BUT SERIOUSLY MAN!!! WHERE'S MY FUCKING TIN HAT? :tinfoil: Aahhh... that's better! as i've already pointed out, feeding grain to cattle is asking for trouble because the animal itself begins living it's entire existence in an inflammation state, they were meant to eat grass, grains are not healthy for the animal nor the person eating the animal... plus there is a perverse use of growth hormones that just about every developed nation in the world forbids use of, antibiotics are liberally used to fight off infection which are present in the meat and many have been saying that adrenaline is present in red meat as the animal lives under a high degree of stress and the final moments of it's life are highly stressful to the degree huge amounts of adrenaline are released into the muscle tissue and because the animal isn't converting it, it remains a permanent constituent of the final product and probably cortisol too...  many here who read this will probably argue no but too many people who i've listened to and respect are saying this is the case...

do not use dairy and when the diet kicks in and you decide to introduce dairy never use milk itself again and use organic cheeses and yogurts from that point on and only sparingly... again, goat cheese will be OK to use afterwords to a degree also but you should hold off on all until you're back on your game again.

eggs are cool unless you have allergies to them, but the best are eggs from free-range chickens and organic.  they may cost twice as much when not on sale but there are no hormones or antibiotics present... these hens are grown to lay eggs high in omega-3 oils. one per day is cool.

moderate amounts of nuts like walnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, etc are cool and seeds like sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, etc are cool too. Raw are best. Walnuts are high in omega-3s. Nut and seed butters are good like almond, cashew, sesame... peanut butter and peanuts are legumes like i've already pointed out and should be used sparingly if at all and organic when actually used.

beans are a great source of protein but should be used in combinations of three or more in order to insure you're getting a complete protein...  cooking them yourself is the best but canned is fine also just strain off the viscous fluid they're packed in using a strainer under water. you can store them in containers but when you use them from a can and you use them from one day to the next touch them to make sure they don't have a slight slime feel to them...  if they do add some water to the container and seal it and shake the container up and down and this will clean this thin coat that MAY develop.  once you shake it rinse and shake one more time then rinse

as an active male you need no more then 70 grams of protein per day...  look into the foods you eat and get a feel for the amount and quality protein available and very quickly it'll be come second nature to you




Quote:

FATS

consume moderate amounts of healthy oils. a low-fat diet is not healthy, nor is it compatible with this diet.

some healthy oils are: monounsaturated oils like extra virgin olive, canola and nuts... polyunsaturated oils that are high in omega-3 oils are canola, flax, fish oils and walnuts and saturated fats from vegetable sources like coconut, palm and avocado to name a few are awesome stuff

limit animal sources of saturated fats...

feel free to use healthy oils on salads, sauces for vegetables and when cooking lean meats. natural palm and coconut oil are excellent for cooking and frying... flax oil is high in omega-3 oils but goes rancid very easily so refrigerate and do not heat and add only after cooking...

absolutely NO hydrogenated oils and limit fried foods. Some low-heat frying with natural palm and coconut oil is okay.

realistically your diet should be made up of at least 20-25% healthy fats, 30% would be better but you decide what works for you but you do need it, especially now...




Quote:

Highly recommended vegetables....  Eat as many of these as possible for the best health.

Artichoke, Asparagus, Avocado, Beet greens, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Cabbage (green and red), Cauliflower, Celery, Chicory, Chinese cabbage, Chives, Collard greens, Cucumber, Dandelion greens, Endive, Escarole, Fennel, Garlic should be used often as it is great for many things and is a great antifungal, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce (avoid iceberg), Mushrooms in general but especially Asian edibles, , Mustard greens, Onions should be eaten everyday, , Parsley, Peppers(all kinds), Purslane, Plantain, Radish, Seaweed,, Spinach, Swiss chard, Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Turnips greens, Turnips, Watercress, Zucchini...

Vegetables to use in moderation...

Beets, Carrots, Green beans, Eggplant, Jicima, Parsnip, Peas (actually a legume), Pumpkin, Rutabaga, Squashes, Sweet potatoes , Taro and Yams...

Vegetables to avoid...

Potatoes
Corn




Here's a Nutritional Value Calculator that Owls posted recently... It's currently displaying the nutritional value of a sweet potato... notice this food is highly anti-inflammatory? it is high in sugars though which is why it's on the moderate use chart.  i'm not saying you have candida, but it is a very common issue those with your problems face so limiting the amounts of simple carbs will starve the yeast IF it is a problem but following this type of diet you'll be minimizing inflammation and allowing your body to produce it's own sugar energy on it's own which it was designed to do...

Nutrition Data Calculator: Know Your Foods...

Quote:

In General...

* Again, drink lots of pure water...
* Organic is always best when available and affordable. always clean your vegetables of pesticides...
* Minimize the use of salt but feel free to use other spices liberally...
* Except for non-starchy vegetables, the other carbohydrates should be limited and eaten with protein meals.
* It's safe to assume that processed foods suck and will interfere with this diet, always reconsider eating anything out of a bag or a box... Really try to understand what you're eating...  Are there good bagged and boxed foods? Yep, just know what to avoid, at least in the very beginning and once your on your game again you can introduce each one on eat them on a daily basis and use for at least a week or so to get a feel whether it is a delayed response food for you...  everyone is different and you may find that sugar used in moderation will not be a problem for you but for me, sugar is not an option...




you say your using vitamins which is good... hopefully it is a high quality, high potency vitamin and mineral supplement.  I'd take one before breakfast and one before dinner and when you're feeling better you can reduce down to one per day or none at all as this will be all up to you at that point in time...  i would take 1 gram of vitamin c three times per day and a high quality fish oil supplement if you can afford it because it is high in omega3's...

you were given a prescription for some sort of sinus infection but if you haven't used it cool because i want you to start using the following probiotic... this is a good price on eBay... i have found it cheaper when you buy two at a time but right now there are no 2 bottle sales.  this is good for 90 days when used as instructed.  once you receive the bottle use the antibiotic to kill all the bacteria in your gut...  once your done with the prescription begin to use the probiotic as instructed.  this will begin to recolonize your digestive tract with nothing but desirable bacteria...  this particular probiotic has 13 different strains of beneficial bacteria with a very high bacteria count per capsule.  once your done with the 30 day supply continue to use it for good but only use one capsule before each meal at that point.  by doing this you will always insure good bacteria dominate the gut...  if you miss days or go into weeks where you're not using it, no big deal but use it every day until your feeling well again so figure on purchasing at least two bottles throughout all of this... my health food store wants $48.00 per bottle for this shit, so you see buying it off eBay makes a lot of sense... we buy it in the 216 capsule bottle because you end up saving so real money doing so...  20 or more dollars actually...

Garden of Life PRIMAL DEFENSE ULTRA Probiotic Formula 90 Caps ULTIMATE DIGESTIVE HEALTH FORMULA! SHIPS WORLDWIDE!

you don't have to do this but for what it costs consider using a digestive enzyme supplement before each meal until you feel good again, then you can stop and rely on the natural enzymes found in the foods... you can get a months supply for as low as $6.00-8.00 for a months supply...

(edit) definitely begin to use curcumin capsules in place of turmeric...  follow instructions on the bottle but don't hesitate to use it more often... papaya and pineapple are good once your out of the woods because they are pretty high in sugar content and right now you want to minimize sugar intake...

some form of meditation is definitely a great idea as it will help you chill or be a benefit when it comes to focusing...  i prefer mindfulness over standard meditation myself... also always focus on breathing when you can focus, breathing int through your nose and out of your mouth and with each breath focus on breathing from the diaphragm literally raising the area including/above your belly and below your chest as this will eventually become auto pilot breathing and help move lymph fluid more effectively with each breath you take...  as you begin to feel better you need to begin to perform aerobic style exercise each day if possible and using the same breathing strategy... always stretch before and after...

and last but not least your vitamin d deficiency or insufficiency according to them... 2000 IU's is a fucking joke man... to give you some example of what i'm saying, spending 15-20 minutes under a high output sun box shining on your face you body can produce up to 15,000 IU's on it's own... i was at 10 and was placed on 50,000 IU's every other day and 10,000 IU's on the remaining days in between for 3+ months and my levels rose to about 78 or so and my MD still considers me low... i'm not suggesting that you begin to use higher doses right now but once your inflammation is under control i definitely would recommend AT LEAST 20,000 IU's per day and be retested within 2-3 months... but you really need to ask your MD why he/she isn't placing you on higher doses because you'll never get there unless the summer comes and you get plenty of sunlight in order to properly skin convert...  on a really sunny day with 40% or more of your body exposed to sunlight your body can easily produce 40-50,000 IU's during a 4 hour period... i don't understand the logic of only taking 2000 IU's and you need to get them to commit in writing that this is all you need if they refuse to write you a prescription for 50,000 IU capsules... but like i said, first things first and that is to get your inflammation under control...

Awesome thanks. I plan to look through that list more when I have more time.  Anyway I guess with the vitamin d, I'm gonna try to get as much sunlight as possible.  I'm not sure if you're saying to take that many thousands IU in pills but if so that's pretty crazy, but  guess my focus will be to get sunlight. I mean in the past when I had defeciency (which was fixed up back then) that sunlight was the main focus to get 10-15 minutes of sunlight a day.  My doctor said besides the vitamin d defeciency depending how it looks in a month or two he would do more blood tests if it was still defecient .  I might consider going to a neurologist if I find one that my insurance would cover. I feel it might be worth it, along with the sunlight, vitamin d and change of diet.  Neurologist because of weird off balance sensation i sometimes have when sitting or walking.

I actually found an interesting neurologist called mind care where i live which sounds interesting but i am very skeptical of going to a guy like this to mess with my brainwaves lol, so if i go it will definetely be a more professional type place if I go. 

Anyway hope to get plenty of sunlight these next few days. I could ask my doctor bout a bigger prescription but i guess if i get plenty of sunlight maybe it wouldn't matter so much?  It could be my doctor isn't so versed in vitamin d defeciency?  Not sure exactly why he prescribed 2,000 IU over tens of thousands.  Maybe he thinks the sunlight will make up for it or could be he doesn't get medical info or as much of it from the internet like many of us do.  The wealth of information online is pretty amazing to say the least.  It should probably be a new standard for doctor's to keep up with medical information on the internet, I certainly would if I was a doctor.  Not saying my doctor doesn't though, but it would make sense to be the standard.


:peace:

just thought i should update,  but i got a celicacs blood test and that came out negative so no celiacs here. still getting vitamin d and sun when possible. still my body feels a little weak and i feel like i just dont have normal energy for being 23 like im afraid to push my body to do anything but otherwise not so bad, just makes me little worried sometimes.  i guess it mite even be two months since i got my vitamin d test, maybe time to check that again soon.

anyway just wanted to update this.  peace people
