Possible Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Posted by Amber on April 25, 2002 at 16:38:23:

I have been suffering for several years from a variety of symptoms: Was diagnosed with Panic Disorder. Had Mononucleosis followed by a tonsillectomy. Chronic sinusitis with severe infections (treated with antibiotics!) that have led to bronchitis. Always thought IBS was a possibility, frequently have problems with constipation, loose stools, bloating. No longer have panic attacks but have occasional unexplained numbness in extremities. Have suggested to my GP that I was concerned about CFS, I exercise regulary yet have never recovered my previous level of energy since having Mono (5 years ago). Have recently been diagnosed with possible Reynaud's Syndrome (due to occasional purple hue of toes). Have had been tested for Lupus, arthritis (I also have chronic back pain), and allergies. All of these tests have come back negative. Convinced that it's not in my head, I maintain a postive attitude despite my frequent discomfort. However, I also remain frustrated trying to find answers. I was recently told about LGS, and the related problems are really hitting home. I am a bit overwhelmed by the amount of information out there, and would just like to know where would be a good place to start my quest, and if it sounds like this might be the cause of my variety of issues. Thank you.

Hi Amber,
Welcome to the board. Your at a good place to start.
There is a lot of information on LGS. Look in the glossary, and then check out the archives. Then come back with your questions.
You will find many people here that post that are
very supportive and try to answer your questions.
Take care

Hi Amber,
I was diagnosed with LGS a few years ago and no longer have it, as well as other intestinal problems from third world travel. I was referred to Mick Hall @ Inner Active Nutrition in Costa Mesa, CA (949)642-8042 or email @ ianhealth@aol.com. They can help better than anyone I've found.
Hope that helps, Sean

De-stressing and relaxation methods will certainly be of help, but you also need to support your ailing body with a non-stressful while it heals. For a thorough look at just how trouble with digesting food can bring about specific problems, check out Dr Stephen Gislason's site at:

Whoops -- I left out a crucial word there: " a non-stressful DIET", that should say!
