It is critical that you focus only on the extremely
vital aspects of your husband's health, in order to avoid
even further complications.
Medical incompetence is what it is, period!
It's not a matter of lack of expertise, it is rather a
case of deliberate neglect, since your husband no longer fits the patient "model" of the medical system.
Should you have a lot of money to seek proper private medical attention for him, I suspect his health status would have been a little different today.
Sure, there may be some genetic association, but there are also many other factors which have led to his deteriorating health.
--His body is under constant stress and the adrenals have been producing a large amount of stress hormones up to the point of exhaustion, causing what I strongly suspect: Adrenal Fatigue.
Along with cortisol and adrenaline, the adrenals also produce another hormone called aldosterone, which regulates bodily fluids and electrolytes, helps control blood pressure, regulates sodium and potassium levels.
The "flashlight test would likely show that the pupils fluctuate when sodium potassium levels are not in balance.
Salt wasting could be one of many complications of low aldosterone. A fast remedy would be to take some sea salt (not commercial, natural) min. 1/2 teaspoon daily.
So his dehydration would be explained by the low aldosterone.
--Dehydration is very dangerous and when chronic it can severely affect cognitive/brain function, heart function,
electrical activity , energy levels and a lot more!
It can also cause severe headaches and migraines.
Some coconut water would benefit him greatly, as it naturally contains many electrolytes and also help with hydration.
I would also look into "structured water" and hydration supplements.
--His extreme vitamin D deficiency is alarming.
He will NOT improve, unless this deficiency is addressed properly! (he may also have vitamin D resistance
It can cause low levels of calcium in the blood. This can lead to muscle cramps (spasms), seizures and breathing difficulties, bone & joint pain, fatigue, Digestive and G/I issues and on and on it goes!
Shame on his doctors who ignored these basic imbalances and suggested that there's nothing wrong
Who's kidding who here? I'm appalled!
He must take substantial supplemental D3 with vitamin K2, a minimum of 5000 IU daily for a few months till his levels improve. Sublingual D3 drops and injections work best, but fat intake is necessary for absorption since vitamin D is fat soluble (and so is K).
--The 3rd thing to look into is finding a holistic or functional medicine doctor who is familiar with adrenal
issues and adrenal fatigue and help your husband recover as much as possible, before any more serious organ involvement takes place.
This a complex condition and you're up against a medical system which is in deliberate denial as I mentioned earlier, at least when it comes to conditions like adrenal fatigue.
His low temperature and many other symptoms may have to do with dehydration, low adrenal function and hypothyroidism type 2/ thyroid-resistance (secondary to adrenal fatigue).
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Hello~I am so sorry your husband is going through this. I don't know if South Africa has chiropractors, but if they do, I highly suggest he see one. If he has vertebrae out of alignment, he will have those shocks you are describing, plus depression and other pains.
He also should be tested for chronic fatigue syndrome, aside from the seizures, his profile fits other folks who have this disorder.
I also think his mini strokes are also contributing to his issues,.
It may help to get his medical records and look at the reports yourself. One doctor may not know what another is doing. If you're in distress or they think you won't understand they may not explain fully to you what's happening.
Based on you're report he's seriously ill to the point of being on morphine (so the doctor who wrote that rx knows there's something seriously wrong physically), having difficulty eating (so of course he has nutritional deficiencies), and he's bedridden. A person in that condition where I live would be in a hospital or nursing home or would have a nurse coming to the house.
