  1. Hi everyone. This is a new symptom for me, small patches of hairloss in beard (i am a guy ). Not the end of the world by any means, as I can just go clean shaven and it's OK, but i prefer some stubble. Will go see the GP soon, but It seems best approach is to leave it initially and see what happens. I have the MCAD/POTS/EDS trio but not sure where this fits in. Quite frustrated as had tons of autoimmune bloods a few weeks ago, and out of 20 or so tests all came back normal apart from a couple which were top end of normal range so not sure what to make of this. Any one else had experience of t
  2. Alaska - I'm all over this. Is the idea just to do 45 mins with 6 months of practice or is there structure to the program? haven't looked @ journal links yet but will do later. Aaron
  3. i have this. best thing for it = exercise and high protien diet
  4. i had this, but then moved to central London and then had to quickly had to get to used to loud sound. can now listen to music as loud as i like, it just seemed to go with time
  5. ^ nice post. i was similar to you, lifted for vanity 6 days a week from 16 to 24 and had a bit of dizziness and pain but no problems really. In good shape. Had a surgery, deconditioning etc and POTS kicked off for me. Through numerous flares pushed myself to try and exercise my way out of them, and sometimes just felt worse. Don't write off getting back in shape though if you can, it might not be enough alone to help you feel better but it's part of the picture. i was doing well until i picked up a groin injury a couple of months ago, as i got in worse shape resting a lot stuff went down hill.
  6. your posts are so knowledgeable on all things diet related! Given me lots to go away and research. funny that a food as specific as bacon can cause pain.i found that bacon can cause MCAD reaction, but i think its the preservatives perhaps more than the meat. I also have reactions to soy so like you don't do soy, dairy or gluten. My vegan mates are impressed with the strictness of my diet, but no so much when i tell them its not through choice!
  7. reading your sig i think i have many of the same probs as you , POTS, MCAD, neuropathy and EDS (awaiting testing). I have a similar personality i think in wanting to know root cause. Have been tested for lyme and pushing for autoimmune tests but if they come up short not sure where else to look. i had a surgery which caused POTS for me, but the EDS underpins it. have had this for about 2 years, TBH don't come on Dinet unless i'm going through a bit of a flare or having a bad week. reading everyone's posts just made me write a list of things i can affect and can't. i find this helps me cope, i
  8. Thats really interesting, thank you for reply. i shall have a look @ whal's diet. My diet is limited because of MCAD, i react to most foods. All grains for example, and also unfortunately most anti histamines. I take it you don't have any hypoglycaemia issues and therefore you can eat fruit no problem?
  9. Thanks Dizzy. will look for Dr F explanation. How are you getting on on paleo? Been trying to do 6 small meals per day at the moment, each meal the same chicken, sweet potato and a type of green veg. Have beeb eating this or variations of this for years anyway but starting to feel guilty about eating so much meat.
  10. Thanks Sue, will try and find your post. i'm sure in the past i have had bacterial problems with abdo pain and everything that goes with that. being on a PPI i understand this can make one more prone to infection. I wonder wether this leaky gut issue is a chronic problem in ESSers, something that waxes and wains and adds to brain for etc..
  11. I'm not a fan of the term "leaky gut" as it rather non specific, but it seems that there is a core of people online who link EDS and leaky gut. I've been gluten free for about a year now. It's really helped. Very rare that i get abdo pain, digestive system seems to tick along OK with the help of a PPI and a very limited diet (due to MCAD). However over the last week or so have had a bit of a POTs flare up of sorts. Less able to exercise, constant brain fog, lots of burping, tingling numbness worse than normal and a flushed face. I haven't been sleeping well lately, skipping meals, not being c
  12. I seem to have similar issues. A couple of times now after i have been meditating for a few minutes with my eys shut i get a sudden feeling of spinning. Not every time, just the odd time. I have peripheral neuropathy, i am wondering outloud if this balance/spinning sensation could be related
  13. Thanks FW, think i will do some isolated arm stuff. i have the seated pedals, but you'd be suprised how much one uses the groin to cycle even when reclined. Seems the core is so involved with everything, we just take it for granted when it works!
  14. thanks for your reply. Yes, i have had 2 hernia and advise was the same. Move! This time it's multiple groin strains/injuries not hernia so the advice is different, rest to allow inflamtion to go down and body to heal
  15. Thank you Issie and Dizzy, some good ideas! Dizzy - Glad your about to hit the ankle weights again. Doc doesent think i have a hernia, but hopefully ultrsound next week will rule it out. Doc said some walking ok, but no "forced walking" thinking that i may just try and go from sitting to standing as often as i can and try and use the time to build up OI tolerance over the time i'm out.
