Years back in Asia I contracted Entomaeba Hytolitica which caused heavy fatigue. I was diagnosed by zygmoidoscopy, treated with Metronidazole but never recovered from tiredness & developed facial age spots at 37, dietary sensitivities, some slight joint tenderness, very salty or bitter perspiration, deep wrinkles at forehead, inability to endure workout/exercise or physical stress without looking like I need a ambulance. My appearance declined immediately, which was the major issue I would say! What tests might I consider? Thanks.
I am sorry to hear what you have been going through. Since you have dietary sensitivities along with aging skin you must rule out vitamin B12, iron and vitamin D deficiency. Dehydration is another possibility. It can also be due to Crohn’s disease or celiac disease. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Thank you for the suggestions. I'll keep it in mind. I stay in south India part of the year. Do you think an Apollo hospital or CMC would be able to do some tests? I did test neg. for celiac about 3 years ago & I do upon occasion take care with the hydration so I know I'm not always dehydrated at least!
