Could you be more than just tired?
Do you have chronic fatigue syndrome? This is characterized by incapacitating fatigue, massive energy crashes after minor exertion, joint pain, muscle aches, brain fog, difficulty getting to sleep and or waking up around 2-3 am, feeling tired and wired and assorted other neurological, autonomic nervous system dysregulation and abnormal immune markers in your labs. You could be exhausted for days or weeks.
You've heard discussions about your immune system. Let's break it down one more time.
Chronic Lyme Disease and Co-Infections.
We offer GI MAP testing. You can't even get it in NYS, but because I am licensed as a primary care doctor in CT and VT - my patients have access.
It's funny cause I was just thinking about this question. Positive Covid new patients come in after they have recovered, but they still present with sore throat, dry non-productive cough, slightly swollen lymph nodes, head pressure, congestion in their ears and feeling not 100%.
I'm back after a month long hiatus. Good things are happening in the ozonosphere on all fronts. I am now a grandmother to a beautiful baby boy whose parents are big ozone advocates. Both mom and dad did weekly ozone treatments prior to conception. Ozone for the next generation and beyond.
Many patients with chronic Lyme or other inflammatory autoimmune conditions have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or MCAS. Many environmental insults contribute to MCAS and serve as triggers for lighting the fire within. Mast cells become activated and rupture releasing histamines into tissues and the bloodstream. This in turn creates inflammation in the body and abnormal immune responses. In order to address the other headlined condition - Lyme, inflammatory arthritis, Hashimoto's, sarcoidosis and such the fire must be put out first.
