A new guy - CFS and dizziness
I want to share my story and learn from you on how to regain my health, since it has been a total mess in the past years.
Male, 28, live in Portugal.
Up until 2012, I was the healthiest dude. Then, in 2013 I started to develop CFS. For 3 years the only symptom that really bothered me was tiredness.
2017 was by far the worst year of my life.
- Constant dizziness and motion sickness even without movement (no nausea tho) since January - this is definitely the worst symptom ever.
- Neck pain (can't move my head that much...)
- Total exhaustion periods throughout the year (I'd say I've been "functional" 60% of the time).
- Lately, I've been waking up feeling like total shit. No energy. Exhaustion. Feeling sick. Weakness. Overwhelmed. Fear. Dizziness. Motion sickness.
- Wake up at 8am, go to bed at 11pm.
- Always eat super clean.
- Try to go for a jog for 15 minutes whenever possible.
- Go barefoot on the ground whenever I go for a run.
- Lots of supplements.
- Try to minimize stress but I manage my company from home (which stresses me a lot because I gotta do work but I need the money). I feel under stress all the time. Had anxiety for 3 months this year but removing coffee, chocolate and walking barefoot on the ground helped me get rid of it.
- I eat right.
- Try to meditate 5 minutes a day. (I wonder if I bumped it to 30m every day religiously it would be WAY better)
- BF: Salad. 3 eggs (under-cooked and cooked at very low temperature) and avocado.
- L: Big salad (possibly after a low GI fruit like apple/pear) + Beef/chicken/turkey/any fish (low heat again) + potatoes / sweet potatoes/rice/quinoa.
- S: Berries and avocado. Chia seeds "when I feel like it".
- Same as lunch, preferably with a different meet / fish.
as much organic as I can.
- Ionic minerals (main component magnesium) on empty stomach and before going to bed (total 500mg/day), taken with a vegetable juice or water.
- Magnesium bisglycinate 400mg/day
- Zinc picolinate (30mg/day)
- Vitamin C (1g / day)
- Vitamin D3 (16,000 IU/day)
- Multi-mineral formula 2x day
- Bone formula 2x day
- Liquid methyl B12 ( 1,000 mcg/day)
- Krill oil (EPA 250 mg + DHA 580mg/day)
Guys please let me know if there is anything I could do better. I am desperate. 5 years of suffering. 2017 was hell on earth. I appreciate your help.
Thank you so much
PS: I was told to avoid the bulletproof diet until I feel a bit better.
May the good God bless us all.
