I suffer from sleep apnea, COPD, MG, degenerative disc disease and other arthritis, hypothyroidism, CFS, FM, Sjorgrens syndrome, Raynauds, RLS, plantar fascitis, chronic headaches, chronic major depression (clinical not situational, or seasonal). I have had many viral infections such as Epstien Barr and CMV. I just wondered if any of these could be interreated or causative of each other. I do have poor dental health, due to a lack of resources to afford dental care. I know that can be a source of infections. My Vit. D level is very low. I also have a kidney problem that causes a chronic anemia and bleeding disorder. I use Aranesp injections to keep the anemia under control. My cholesterol is high (both HDL and LDL) as well as my triglycerides are elevated. I also have fatty liver and GERD, with heliobacter coli. I know it sounds like I am falling apart, and I am. I get pneumonia a couple of times a year and sometimes more, despite the vaccine. I usually get the flu, also despite the vaccine. I can't think of anything else at this point in time, but there may be other more minor problems. If anyone can give me some insight I would greatly appreciate it. I am looking for ways to manage these problems without so much medications, which also make me feel lousy.
