Hi everyone, I'm posting on behalf of a friend who was diagnosed with ME a few years ago. She recovered and went into remission for a period, back to life, work etc. Unfortunately, a UTI infection (possibly) about a year ago set her back to a 24/7 bedbound state. In addition to fatigue, her main symptoms are an abnormal thirst, lack of appetite, yellowish tongue, inflamed bladder, disturbed sleep due to frequent nocturnal urination. I wondered whether anybody has had to deal with this kind of symptom picture. In particular, an abnormal thirst and need to drink. Appetite is lacking and she can eat very little once a day, usually at night and only after drinking 6-7 pints of water which seems to stimulate a little appetite for food. Diabetes, including diabetes insipidus have been ruled out by the doctors, so has any bladder infection that would explain discomfort in the pelvic area and frequent urination. I would appreciate if anybody has had any experience with this sort of issues, any insights or suggestions on possible remedies as she doesn't know where to turn. Many thanks.
