I've had extended periods of anxiety and chronic fatigue symptoms for many years. Anxiety is the all-day kind, not the 1-2 hr. panic-then-subsiding. Flare-ups can last for 6-12 months or more, then disappear, leaving me anxiety free, for 1-2 years or more. Changes in lifestyle or diet never had any effect. Done long fasts, liver, kidney & gall flushes, complete stoppage of all sugar & dairy, you name it. Prior to 2015, I've never experienced any connection between this pattern and my eating patterns. I could eat pretty much whatever I wanted during both anxious & calm periods, and my stomach/gut motility & regularity was seamless. But this year, often I eat or drink something and almost immediately get a severe shot of anxiety, weakness, nausea and muscle aches. I must say sometimes, because some meals produce no ill effect at all. I tried to track a pattern showing which foods, liquids, meal times, amounts, etc. kick in the anxiety & CFS, and it seems totally random. Some days I'll have simple toast in the AM, and good sized lunch and dinner (mostly greens, grains & salad, all organic, very little fat except maybe some feta cheese on the salad or olive oil on the food,) and feel no symptom kick-in from breakfast or lunch and maybe only a little nausea/bloat from the dinner meal. The the next morning I'll have the same toast or maybe just a cup of tea and wham!, the symptoms hit immediately and I'm crawling out of my skin for hours, even all day, with later meals just exacerbating the symptoms. Doesn't matter which food or drink I had - even high-fat or high-sugar foods sometimes cause symptoms, sometimes not. The only consistency is feeling quickly over-full & bloated from amounts smaller than than I used to be able to eat. I've had every GI test you can name, all stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, etc organs show up normal. One bacteria-crazed GI guy in LA suspected h-pylori & Blastocystitis, put me on 2 weeks of Nitazoxinide (Alinia) which would have killed either of those (Nearly killed me...ugh!) but symptoms still persist months later. Anybody else have this, or have a sense of what this is? By the way, Happy Holidays to all, and a wish for a wonderful 2016!
