This past May I had my Gallbladder removed. I have recently been experiencing the above symptoms with extreme chronic fatigue. I have seen many doctors over the past several months. The only doctor to date that was able to come up with something was a Rhuemotolgical doctor who suggests that I might be dealing with a reactive arthritis. He did some blood test that were neggative. I am currently taking (1)one Vioxx a day 25mg for the pain. It works but just barley makes it. The lymphnode pain in the groin radiates around my back at times, and most all of my other joints ache. I have had episodes of GERD since March but never ever prior to that in my life. I even experience dizzyness at times. The GERD symptoms are now starting to re-develop which will more than likely require Prilosec again. Over the last two months I have developed a somewhat swollen tongue with a white coating and some sores. The doctor is not sure what it is. They have tested for thrush and it came back neggative. I am a very athletic person who up until March was running 7 miles a day. Now I have a difficult time walking 2-3- miles.
Can you give some suggestions on what could be possibly going on here? I would love to get back to the normal healthy life style I had prior to March. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
I have suffered from many of the same symptoms you have. I have had every test run on my cardiovascular system, digestive system, mri's on my entire spine, cat scans. You name it I have had it run. All my doctors tell me I am fine, and to stop worrying. I have researched on the internet, and you might want to look into candiditis ( yeast overgrowth in the intestinal tract ) this produces a " leaky gut ". I would suggest looking into this on the internet or with your doctor. Good luck and God Bless..
