Tomorrow I'm going to see my doctor. I have been having horrible symptoms for a long time. Here is the long, detailed back-story, leading up till today. Hopefully someone on her has some advice:
The winter of 2013, after being on Raw Till 4 for a whole summer, I freaked out over gaining 15lbs, and returned to my former eating disordered ways. I don't remember much from that winter, having been in a psychotic episode for most of it. I was eating next to nothing though, and had very little energy. I spent most of my time in bed. I still haven't been able to get my energy back yet, two years later. I eat a lot, now. Mostly raw, save the odd beans or rice with my dinner. I want to go completely raw. I am also no longer taking any medications for my psychotic symptoms, since they drained my energy more and made me sick.
This past summer, I started having serious stomach pains. Burning pains in my lower gut, so unbearable! I went to my doctor a few times, and even had an ultrasound, and they found nothing. These pains eventually went away. They came back in the fall, worse than ever. One night I was struggling with these pains so bad at three in the morning and I woke up to them and the room spinning. I was sweating and shaking, also fell into horrible auditory hallucinations. I called an ambulance and saw my doctor. He wouldn't take me seriously and thought I was on drugs, because I was hallucinating badly and not making much sense. He finally said it was was benign case of vertigo and sent me home with meds for the dizziness.
My last and final episode of stomach pain was so bad I thought I was dying. I've couldn't even walk and I was crying all the way to the hospital. They gave me a "pink lady", which they said was a numbing agent and antacid combined, and sent me home. The pink lady didn't help and made so stoned I couldn't even talk properly and my roommate was concerned and thought I was on drugs.
I haven't had stomach pains since. I cut out legumes and grains, save the odd bit oatmeal when I run out of food, while waiting to get paid. I've been eating almost 100% raw. Just lots of fruits and greens. I have at least 2 avocadoes a day, and sometimes sunflower seeds, so I guess I eat quite a bit of fat. I don't eat processed food or sugar, I don't smoke, drink alcohol, or caffeine. I only drink filtered water. Since my last ER trip over stomach pains, the following symptoms have started slowly and gotten unbearable:
My hair is falling out in large amounts
I'm always freezing cold or really hot
I sweat a lot in my underarms, even when I'm cold
My Keretosis Polaris (skin condition) is worsening
I am always fatigued
I get extremely dizzy and tired after eating
I have to nap after eating
I am often constipated
My skin is breaking out
My brain feels like mud (no other way to describe it)
I get weird pressure sensations in my head
I can't think/ control my thinking
I can't focus
I can't hold a conversation for very long
I dissociate often
My days go by so fast, and I can't remember them
I have to try really hard to remember the last hour
I always crash and need a nap in the evening
I have occasional auditory or visual hullucinations, once again
I am losing grip with reality
I'm often depressed
I have very little motivation
My body seems to struggle digesting my meals
Waking up in the morning is like waking out of a coma
I struggle getting out of bed
These symptoms seem to be a combination of mental and physical problems combined. If anyone has any input, I would love to hear it. I see my doctor tomorrow, and I know he's going to give me a hard time for being a vegan. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Sorry this post is so long, but I felt the details were important. Also, if it helps, I am a 22 year old female. I'm 5'5 and weigh around 135lbs. A little on the heavy side for my body type, but not overweight. Not sure why this is happening.
