CFS, IBS-D, hyperhydrosis, fevers, insomniaI have a classic case of CFS. I've tested positive for reactivated Epstein-Barr, HHV-6 and Mycoplasma pneumonia. I also had extraordinarily high titres of Toxoplasma gondii, along with a Tricuria trichuris infection (whip worms). I also have adrenal fatigue and thyroid insufficiency and take medication for both. I had a large goiter removed 10/89 and I collapsed from adrenal fatigue about a year ago. I have not worked since October due to fatigue, dizziness, exhaustion, brain fog and chronic stomach aches (IBS).
I did the Remedy Finder the other day and came up with a strong score for Arsenicum. I ordered three potencies: 30X, 30C and 200C. Now I'm reading up on IBS and the FODMAP diet (fructose malabsorption, etc.) and I think it's a fit. But I'd like to heal my gut so I was wondering what else to do. Also, it seems likely I have an enterovirus as these can cause malabsorption and small bacterial overgrowth with IBS symptoms of gas, bloating and low motility - all of which I have. So I'm going to try the FODMAP diet to give my gut a break - but what will cure it?
I did a herbal parasite treatment for the month of March and ended up very sick with fevers and sweats, brain fog, weakness and fatigue. After a few colonics, and some rest, I got a bit better and then I did a 2.5 week Toxoplasma treatment using Chinese herbs. This gave me fevers, chills and sweats, much worse than before. Toward
the end my chills abated but the fevers and sweats still bother me quite a bit, along with insomnia (not just my usual early morning waking, but frequent waking up sweating and hot, throwing off covers, getting too cold, putting covers back on). That's when I found Arsenicum.
I have a hunch whatever cures my gut will cure my CFS. LMK if you know something in addition, or better to what I have chosen, to more fully address the gut problems (which include constipation but mostly loose stools and diarrhea, particularly as the days wears on) and the sleep problem. Thanks and much love.

michele3d 6 years agoHi Michelle
that is on a thread on today called Monsoon rain- If you look where your name is on this post- then look at other
posts and see Nawazkahn? all those posts
have the intake form.
Also the prescription by RP above this?
his user name is Shouse- click on that
you will see his email- you might want
to send him an email and ask more
things about his ideas for you. You
are new to forum and you can click on
anyones user name and see their profile and email if they list it.
♥ simone717 6 years agoHi Michelle,
I hope this e-mail reaches you. I have a few suggestions ..... these are suggestions only but they have worked for me.
Homeopathy is amazing and ABChomeopathy are the best.
I would start with Ultraclear by Metagenics for 10 days following their program and then do a homeopathic intake of your symptoms.
Arsenicum Album is a generic for chronic fatigue but one must exhibit the mentals , physicals and generals in order for it to work.
I would not buy into the virus load/titer, in choosing a remedy.... a homeopathic remedy choice has to be on symptom picture
I think you are correct with your observation of your G.I problem, all go hand in hand .
I have a couple of questions if that is O.K.
I wish you well .... if I can help with a remedy please get it at ABC
marlinstorm 6 years agoHi Marlinstorm,
Thanks for your email. I decided to try RP's advice, and the Mercuris helped my fevers and sweats right away. I still have temperature fluctuations, but they are not nearly as bad. However, the fatigue is still truly awful - I'm mostly housebound and very frustrated. Just a few months ago I was able to go to school but now I spend most of my time reading or lying down.
Does Arsenicum help more with fatigue? I remember it fit my symptoms really, really well, and I already bought it from abchomeopathy.
P.S. What are the mentals, physicals and generals for Arsenicum? I couldn't find them.

michele3d 6 years agoMichele. You can look them up on
abc remedies, click on A and read
the materia Medica they are using for
this site, But you cannot prescribe
RP has been on forum helping for quite
awhile. These things go in layers- so
however long he told you to do your
prescription, then you report back what
is going on after the amount of days
and he will then re do the prescription.
This is Marlinstorms first post on
♥ simone717 6 years agoThanks, Simone. I will see what RP says after I complete the course of treatment he prescribed. I'm glad to hear there will be more suggestions.
While I was planning on getting back to RP anyway, I like hearing different points of view - because with ME/CFS, no one has all the answers, so you learn to listen to everybody.

michele3d 6 years agoYes, you report in feed back and then
next set is prescribed to address where
you are at until you are cured.
♥ simone717 6 years agoHi Simone,
I haven't heard back from Ram since we first discussed remedies. He hasn't responded to a question about how to take them nor has he responded to my 15 day report. I'm still having severe problems with insomnia, sinus congestion, and dryness at night (eyes and mouth). What should I do?
