hi hi !
I'm back on the board now that I'm back on the grid in general and my first post in months is alas a health related one. My partner went to see a doctor about this and was told it was 'just general wear and tear' but is debating going to a different one ( though he has been for about three years since this stuff started. It's worse now
) and open to any directions to point them in or personal experiences or anything.
He's 33 and I know this is a long post but any help really is appreciated because it hurts me seeing him gradually become more disillusioned and mystified.
The trouble is it's a vague list of symptoms..
Does this ring a bell with anyone? Even just a particular vitamin or mineral deficiency? "Stress"? He's not stressed but was a few years ago. I've noticed he stops breathing on occasion in his sleep but doesn't seem to have actual sleep apnoea. He runs about 10k every few days and walks around a bit but not that much.Used to swim a lot and was super fit but then started feeling crappy.Still has 'fit days' but usually after running feels awful the next day.
-pain in that bit of the jaw that feels almost like a headache ( but never gets headaches. Ever! )
-frequent urination ( to the point where he can't go a whole night without getting up 2 or 3 times and doesn't drink water before bed )
-a bit of digestive trouble ( tried eliminating various things but it seems to be just a general thing that's worsened by stress etc. Eats well as a vegetarian with minimal dairy on the whole )
-bouts of awful lethargy, to the point of being unable to move. Just has to lie on the floor.
Blood tests showed his iron was good.
