  • Thanks so much for the prayers and rosaries.

    And I pray especially for everyone to have a Happy Mother's Day today.

    My mother had a safe trip out and is here thankfully. It is a relief she is here.

    FlosCarmeli, I have sent my genetics test kit in, it generally takes 8 weeks to process, it should definitely show something like HD or any other conditions. I will look for it. Thank you again.

    Mary Our Mother, pray for us.

    :pray:


    'The greatest event in the whole history of the world was the Incarnation of the eternal Word by whom the world was redeemed and peace was restored between God and men. Our Lady was chosen as his instrument for this tremendous event, and it was put into effect when she was greeted with the Angelic Salutation. The archangel Gabriel, one of the leading princes of the heavenly court, was chosen as ambassador to bear these glad tidings.'

    St. Louis Marie de Montfort


    'I shall do everything for Heaven, my true home. There I shall find my Mother in all the splendor of her glory. I shall delight with her in the joy of Jesus himself in perfect safety.'

    St. Bernadette Soubirous


    '. . . the Angelic Salutation is the rainbow in the sky, a sign of the mercy and grace which God has given to the world.'

    St. Louis Marie de Montfort

    Sincerely,

    Shin

  • My friends it's a little early to say, but I believe I may have turned a corner here and be on the road to recovery.

    My tremors have died down to a much lower level, and the attacks of severe tremors have also become rare in the past few weeks.

    :pray: :pray: :pray:

    Thank you so much for the prayers.

    May God keep you all and help everyone all the more in every way and every time.

    Sincerely,

    Shin

    Great to hear! Thank you for the update. :pray:

  • Of course that's good news, but is there more info on what caused them?

  • Thank you so much for the prayers. :D They are heartfelt.

    I have a guess as to what the cause is.. it's just a guess at this point, so I hesitate to say.. But since asked, I will.

    I've had the puzzling symptom of my tremors tending to get worse sooner or later after eating meals. I've been fasting to an extreme for the past number of months due to this. The doctors just shrugged at this and paid no attention to the symptom, they didn't seem to take it seriously or at least recognize it as something important to look into. Two neurologists, my family doctor, a nurse practitioner -- nothing.  The allergist thought maybe food intolerance but said that tremors would be an atypical reaction and left it at that. I struggled to get all the labwork done I wanted from the doctors, so I got some private lab tests done, expense being far from an issue outweighing the importance of it all.

    Well after so many clean or innocuous lab tests, both doctor ordered and private, I finally got labwork back a couple days ago for a GI MAP, that looks for any bacterial, viral, or other pathogens in your digestive system. I got some postives for bacterial pathogens.

    C. difficile, TOXIN A, C. difficile, TOXIN B, and h. pylori. were all flagged as high. I looked up C. difficile, and found animal testing had shown besides the usual symptoms of digestive problems, neurological problems can be caused by these. This, along with my symptoms becoming worse whenever eating, and the fact that a year ago I'd been doing quite poorly and had to treat myself with garlic, vitamin C over a long period of time and with antibiotics, would account for my not having enough good bacteria to combat off these bacterial pathogens and them in turn causing these problems that were only mitigated when they were not fed enough to propagate.

    This is my guess. It's still just a guess, I certainly should research it more and will. It's one that may be somewhat verifiable unlike some other possibilities though. I see a gastroenterologist for the first time at the end of this week. What he'll think of it all I don't know.

    These bacterial bathogens require very specific antibiotics to get rid of them, others will just cause them to get worse as they aren't much effected and take over where the good gut flora were. C. difficile can be fatal if it gets bad enough.

    I still have to be cautious about eating but can eat a bit more than before, and while before it seemed the probiotics I took were not useful, I am now taking them with every meal and there appears likely to be some good cause/effect going on when I do that. I can eat somewhat more now before getting more tremors too.

    So I think the guess has some potential to be correct, but whether the doctor will confirm it or not directly I can't say. I will say if I get a tailored antibiotic to take out these pathogens which I believe I should and will, and the tremors completely dissappear during receiving those medications, I will take that as confirmation.

    Kyrie eleison. I have a lot of hymns and canticles I can almost hear -- I have a lot of hope. I certainly have resolved to be a more merciful and compassionate person in the future, praying for and receiving God's mercy I appreciate it a great deal more.

    I am not out of the woods but if I keep on improving.. what a wonder it will be. :D Amen.
    Sincerely,

    Shin

  • Shin-  your bowel is probably horrifically inflamed. Yes , you need oral vanco and and doxycycline for the c-diff and Yes you will need probiotics while you are on all of this antibiotic therapy. But to decrease symptoms, at least while you are healing, you need to be on a low fiber anti-inflammatory diet. Normally, veggies are a good thing, but for you they are probably  a cause for pain and symptoms. Eat as mildly as you can without fiber and see how you do. Meat and eggs are ok, some dairy can be an issue but some raw cheeses and yogurt is good. Eat like a baby. Watch out for grains as well. Avocados may be the only plant food you may be able to tolerate. I only know because I have experienced c-diff. The fasting periods are very healing. I'm glad that you have finally found a cause for your sufferings. Glycine is a good supplement to look into. A good diet online is  the GAPS diet. 
    God bless you

  • That explanation sounds completely plausible. Please continue to update!
