Right now I am at a 7--I have dysautonomia (which isn't ME, but has similar symptoms.) I found a Dysautonomia forum, as well as a youth network for people 26 and under with Dysautnomia.) Maybe these will be better resources since they are more relevant, but I do know some people on here have benefitted from or have been cured by alternative treatments. I know there are so many alternative treatments out there, but I'm looking for promising alternatives that will hopefully get me up to a 8 or 9 (possibly back to normal--wouldn't that be amazing?) My biggest problem is the fatigue, numbness, and dizziness from what I believe to be a lack of normal blood 02 levels? My hands and feet are often somewhat numb and cold, my skin is so pale (the lightest foundation from some makeup companies is like a bronzer on me), I have purple tinted nails, and sometimes get short of breath. My doctor tested me for anemia a few months ago (the results came back normal) so he gave me CereFolin NAC to try and said he really didn't know of any other options. I finished the samples, but didn't buy any more since I felt it was kind of pricy and didn't seem to make much of a difference (my doctor said I'd see a difference in 2 weeks if it did work.) Right now, I'm taking a multi-vitamin and Omega 3 along with an wholesome refined sugar-free organic diet (although I do break down and have ice cream every now and then.) LOL I also do yoga, although I find it's more for the fun of it than as an alternative treatment. I'm in my late teens, and so my brain is still developing and I'm going to be hitting that cognitive peak in a few years. I'm worried the lack of oxygen or whatever it may be, is going to take a long term toll, so I have this desire to work against the clock and do something to prevent this. I also want to be able to do more and not have these issues create problems that require me to change my plans based on how I'm doing that day. Does anone have any suggestions of where to go or what to do?
