Mystery and mysery

(Tooting London Britian)

Hello ladies
I would like to input, to see if anyone can relate or explain. This is very complex- not even my consultant could help me. For years I've had a very sensitive stomach, I had a colonoscopy but nothing showed up. Eventually I was prescribed Itraconazole (sporanox) for 7 days, but when I had a grapefruit one morning I had a bad case of diarreah, and it felt as if I had no stomach left. Another thing is my cycle have shifted to 28 days from 30 & have accompanied by a whole host of symptoms before my period eg fuller breast, puffy eyeys, & water weight increases. Flatulence of 4 lbs! Now here is the mystery which I cannot solve- I was contracted to work a one off temporary night shift for 3 weeks between 10pm- 7am and all of a sudden, 2 weeks into the shift my symptoms had dissapeared. I mean all of them. No fuffy eyes no flatulence nothing. I could even eat wheat, which I could not before. Now that my shift has ended, within 5 days into my normal night sleeping pattern my symptoms returned. As I have said, this is s mystery to me. Has anyone ever experience this? Is there an answer or cure.

I have read the forum trying to find a solution but I have to go through them slowly.
Thanks
Sue.

Hi Sue Well you have me stumped! The only thing I can think of is somehow your circadian rhythm has become corrupted. And your body clock has switched 12 hours. But why it would do that I have no idea. Maybe you could contact Julienne via her website here. She is a registered EFT therapist, a wonderful therapy you might consider doing. It could possible shift it back again if I'm right, or certainly sort it out. They've had remarkable success with it. You can't go on like that, the only alternative is to do permanent night shift! If you have to go this route, please make sure you take extra vitamin D, you won't be making any. Not that you make much in the UK anyway. It might be an idea to have a test done. Birmingham Hospital send out test kits for £25 and the results back by email. Please ignore their 'adequate' level which follows NHS recommendations, it's far too low. Blood levels should be 175-250nmol/L. In fact when I read the first part of your query, I immediately thought you had a deficiency, it's so important for the gut. But then you gave that extraordinary info. If you hadn't I would have put your symptoms down to excess oestrogen/low progesterone. If you do go to Jules, please let me know how you get on. Take care Wray

Circadin rythm
by: Anonymous

Hello Wray

Thank you for responding to my post.
I've never heard of circadin rhythm, but what you said seems correct. Isn't it amazing how my symptoms ceased and I could eat what I want, when it is the same body that cannot now eat the things I want while I was on the night shift. It perplexed me. And this is all to do with a changed pattern of sleep hrs. Since June I am taking vitamin D but see no change. I also forgot to add that for years I feel light headed when I raise my head from floor level, say if I pick something up from the floor or putting on my shoes and I stand up. Is this my blood sugar levels? And once after I ate my meal I raised my head and found myself going into a state of faint. This scared me.
The body requires alot but we don't seem to have the pure natural resource on earth today, I don't know. What is pure again? And I have exhausted my time with the doctors, which is why I am seeking alternatives.
I'll email the lady to see if this thing can be corrected. It's too much of a mystery for me.
Thank you very much for your knowledge in sharing.

Sue :)

Hi Sue I don't know if this is worth looking through, see here. It came in today, and although it's about insomnia, the heading is 'Tips for Resetting Your Internal Clock and Sleeping Better'. It might be worth trying the supplements they suggest, and seeing if they help. One thing I completely overlooked was your... "Another thing is my cycle have shifted to 28 days from 30 & have accompanied by a whole host of symptoms before my period eg fuller breast, puffy eyes, & water weight increases." These are typical of excess oestrogen. I think I was so fascinated by your other problem, it went past me. It seems you could be in Peri-menopause? Our cycles do change, they can become very erratic too. Oestrogen causes water retention, the breasts can become very tender too. Progesterone is an excellent diuretic, now given to Traumatic Brain Injury victims to prevent oedema forming. It also prevents any inflammation. If the supplements suggested on the link above don't reset your clock, maybe you could look at using progesterone.

circadin rhythm
by: Anonymous

Thanks again. There is no other site like this.
The circadin rhythm/ resetting internal clock for better sleep was not my issue, as I slotted back into my sleep pattern once my night shift ended. The issue was the symptoms re-appearing once I got back to my normal sleep patten. It's not the sleep, but the symptoms. But I'll take your advice & look into progesterone. Please tell me the cost, how I apply it and where to order.You'r a big help.

Sue :)

Circadin rythm
by: Wray

Hi Sue It is a puzzle! But if you are in Peri-menopause many strange things can happen! It's not blood glucose dropping, but blood itself. You must have low blood pressure, normally a good thing. But if too low it can cause faintness. I never experienced faintness while going through P-M, but terrible dizziness. Thank heavens that went when I started the progesterone. I would be interested if Jules can help you. Or if you have discovered a new P-M symptom where it changes our day/night rhythm! Take care Wray

circadin rhythm
by: Wray

Hi Sue Thanks for your comment about the site! It was because all your symptoms returned when you went back to daylight working, that I wondered if somehow your rhythm had been disrupted, not so much your sleep. Or is that a bit obtuse!? If you do manage to get hold of Julienne she will be able to guide and supply you with progesterone. But please have a look at our page on the cream here. It gives the cost and the ingredients we use. She'll be able to give you info on the vitamin D too, that's so important. Briefly progesterone can be applied anywhere. The skin comprises 95% keratinocytes which have many progesterone receptors, see here. Even the hair follicles absorb it well, see here. Plus it's of direct benefit to the skin itself, see here. Please let me know how you get on. Take care Wray

I have been intouch with Julienne and she said it's baffling as to why my clock seems to have been reversed. She suggests vitamin D and progesterone.

I'm going to look into it a bit deeper and lead from the Circadin rhythm which I know will take care of my problem & I really thank you Wray for suggesting this because I have never heard of this before and I know you have hit the nail right on the head.

Thank you.

Sue :-)

Hi Sue It's all very fascinating to me, so I would appreciate if you kept in touch with either Jules or me as to how you get on. I've never come across this before, in the 17 years I've been advising on progesterone! Vitamin D is a must whatever decision you make, it's so important. I've not found one person in the UK who has a normal level. Take care Wray
