What did your allergy tests show? Anything?

Have you had your house tested for mold? There are different types of mold, and some are more toxic than others, and some people are more sensitive. This is a really general overview - https://www.webmd.com/women/mold-mildew#1

Here is some info on testing for it (and preventing it) - https://www.hgtv.com/remodel/interior-remodel/black-mold-symptoms-and-health-effects You can pay a pro, or do it yourself. Lots of hardware stores sell kits you can use.

Also - what meds do you take, for anything? Lots of those can cause vertigo, affect taste, etc., and some can have some funky interactions when taken together. This won't list all possible interactions, but it's worth a try - https://www.rxlist.com/drug-interaction-checker.htm

Good luck! Let us know what happens.

Hello~I would certainly get a second opinion by an Endocrinologist, this sounds to me like a type of yeast infection called "Candida" It can grow on your skin, intestines, almost anywhere it is dark and damp. It can give you all kinds of strange and uncomfortable feelings as well.

I would also start your own little experiment at home. Cut out all sugars, wheat and yeast products, go low carb and try to exercise daily, also, drink at least 8 ounces of water daily. You should start to feel better if it is Candida.

Hope you feel better soon.
