Hi Dutchmom, I dont mean to rob this thread, but you said some stuff that was really interesting to me. I had my Mirena from Nov/Feb, and it was hell with about every side effect on this board, the worst being the tingling/numbness/sleeping limbs, and fatigue. I was sent to two separate neurologists fearing MS. And now, 3 weeks post removal, I am feeling better, but have a long way to get back to normal.
What you said was interesting to me because of three things you mentioned: chemical sensitivity, candida, and adrenal fatigue...
Last spring while still nursing my daughter, I had a thrush (yeast) infection I could NOT fight off.. I literally had it covering my chest for 4 months... I also have a lot of asthma-like issues, and in August we found some hidden molds in our basement, and tore out all the walls, and I had a horrible time all fall with breathing after that... and was tested for allergies and am extremely allergic to molds..... I have wondered about chemical sensitivities with myself on many occasions since I first heard that term.
And adrenal fatigue i have never heard of, but my mom had cushings, which is a disease of the adrenal glands, and was very sick about 5 years ago.. no one has never been able to clarify whether or not there is any family link with that, but when I saw the word adrenal you stopped me in my tracks...
So what exactly does your naturopath think symptom-wise is related to those things? I would GREATLY appreciate any info you can give. I cant afford to keep paying doctors to tell me i am crazy.
