Yes, I’ve lost many a long post, so I’ve learnt to type my reply out first in wordpad, then copy and paste it. That way I can still read the post I’m replying to at the same time. Thanks for the explanation of Mast Cells too Leslie.
Chasity, it would be a good idea to get a true picture of the full extent of your son’s suffering, Dr Diana has created some ‘symptom checklists’ where you can check off and keep a record of the things your son experiences, below is a link to the one for Chronic Fatigue which, it sounds like, is part of your sons condition.
Here’s the direct link to the download:
You might also want to watch the following video, as migraines and other body pains can simply be a magnesium deficiency – easiest way to replenish this is Epsom Salt baths. Unfortunately certain drugs further deplete magnesium in the body (particularly some painkillers and some stomach meds).
Let me also tell you that I was diagnosed with features of POTS, even though I was basically ok on the tilt table test.
His nausea could be being caused by raised intracranial pressure, which may improve with the epsom salt baths (or footbaths – if he doesn’t have the energy) only time will tell, just something you can be doing in the meantime until his doctor gets to the bottom of it.
I would also try to ensure thay your son takes a good multivitamin and mineral supplement every day because this will help his body to carry out some of it’s tasks, in the event of insufficient nutrition, which can easily happen when you’re often feeling nauseous. This may improve his energy levels (B vitamins, copper, zinc, manganese), his sleeping pattern (B6), his immune system (Vitamin C, Vitamin D, zinc, selenium, etc), his skin (Vitamin C, etc), multiple body processes (Iron, Vitamin D), his memory (Vitamin E, Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Omega 3, Selenium). I can’t recall all the full lists from memory but, you get the picture, he needs these every day.
