Chronic Tendonitis, Chronic Hives, Tinea Versicolor, Hashimotos

Has anyone had these? I seem to have all 4 but have found some things that help.

It all started when I was under stress for a whole year, then had bilaterial hernia surgery repair then got sick with a upper respiratory infection (took antibiotics) and then started getting tinea versicolor a month later, chronic hives 2 months later, and chronic tendonitis 5 months later. Then I got stomach ulcers from NSAIDs (only took like 5) for tendonitis (which didn't help btw). Started getting brain fog, can't sleep when hungry or unless its bed time(no matter how tired I am).

My TPO antibodies are 600+ TSH is either 1.7 or 2.7 (it jumped that high in a month so I just got it retested monday to double check because they were done at differnt labs)

Here are things that help:

Chronic tendonitis: If I start feeling pain, lay off for a while and ice until it goes away. I've literally had tendonitis in 30 places in my body, all seems to be tendons connected to muscle. Massage helps, I feel sore the next day or two, but then feel better.

Chronic Hives Lay off histamine foods (Yogurt, pinapple, non fresh ground meat)

Tinea Versicolor I think a combination of probiotics, going gluten free, and nizoral applied topically has made almost gone

Other notes : I have had my appendix taken out; which research is starting to consider it replenishing good bacteria in digestive tract. Also think it could be adrenal fatigue.

What are your experiences with these conditions?

I suffer mostly from diarrhea ever since I was a kid. i just feel that this whole eat tons of fiber til you poop plants approach has its own negative repercussions too. i believe feeding tons of fibers/vegetables/fruits to a leaky gut, or an imbalanced gut flora, only leads to worsening of the problem.

It was just over my torso and back mainly. Im sure you can get it on your face I never did, nor is it common. Derm tested it with culture. It doesnt really sell in stores anymore but I got it on walgreens.com

Yes I totally agree with you and have been trying to fix my leaky gut. It all happened after surgery and antibiotics like I said. I found cutting out gluten really helps. Have you seen a rhuem? My TPO antibodies are at 600+.

trigger points are easy to rid off manually...but their source is chronic inflammation and imo poor gut health

Rashes are sometimes bands and sometimes just scattered. Also, where is your tineaversicolor? Can you get it on the face? How did they diagnose/test it, with culture? Is Nizoral topical prescription or OTC?

This morning I ate some eggs and pork. For lunch I ate some more eggs and beef. Now I'm breaking out with new rashes on my back. Maybe I'm allergic to eggs because of high sulfur content? I'm also allergic to all seafood and lactose intolerant. If I keep this up,I will only be able to eat a handful of foods?

I first got the hives summer '11 but it went away a several days later with antihistamine treatment. But a rash was still there. In March '12 I developed hives and rashes all over my back, butt,and thighs. After many doctors visits and test, I suspected a gluten allergy so I went GF. The hives improved but rashes still around. Then I went Paleo and cut out all grains. Hives are now gone, but I still have some rashes, mostly on lower back and thighs. I've also cut out sulfites (no wine, vinegar, dried fruits, etc) and saw an improvement in my complexion, but still have the rashes on my back.

If you think you have just get a TSH and TPO test, and you should know if you have hypothyroid or hashimotos, respectively. Did you get tendonitis anywhere else? When did your hives show up? Mines cholinergic urticaria so they show up when I get hot Yes tinea versicolor can be caused by antibiotics even according to webmd. Yes I've got a lot more cut too but don't know if its because I havn't eaten as much becuase i can't have nightshades, cruficius vegtables, histamine food, or foods with idoine along with paleo.

I will look into Nizoral topical as soon as feel like going to see a doctor again. Got so sick of of seeing 5+ doctors at same time and none could figure out what was wrong.

If the antibiotic you took was a fluoroquinolone, then you might have had a reaction to it. They cause damage to tendons, ligaments—basically all connective tissue. This might be the reason you're afflicted with tendonitis throughout your body.

autoimmunity, hives, tendonitis (which may actually be myofascial trigger points)...all of which I've experienced for many years. IMO it's all related to gut health, a leaky gut and your gut flora. if y ou have alot of food intolerances, hives, gut problems etc...try avoiding fibers and fix your leaky gut. I simply cut out FODMAPS and most fibers/starches, and went with a Paleo carnivorous diet for a few weeks (similar to the introductory GAPS diet) and it really fixed my bowel problems as well as my hives. My 2 cents.

Texas, I wanted to respond earlier but had to do research on the tinea versicolor and Hashimoto to see what they were. But you may have diagnosed a hyper pigmentation problem I've been wrestling with for a while now! Hashimotos I may or may not have, so many generalized symptoms.

Anyway, I'm in TX too and earlier this year, I seemed to have had a health crisis where I developed chronic rashes and hives, possibly from gluten, shellfish, sulfites, nightshades, etc. Also has tendinitis where my left elbow became disabled almost overnight and sciatica where I could not sleep on my side. I was also swelling up and had to completely stop wearing rings. This came after about a year of constantly being on antihistamines for seasonal allergies and antibiotics for respiratory infections. Wasnt sure if I turned into my mother overnight or if I was really stressed. I'm in my mid 40s but have always enjoyed great health prior to moving to central tx.

Anyway, I cut out gluten six months ago and felt a little better. I found Paleo about 3 months ago and started feeling a lot better. Haven't lost much weight, only 5 lbs or so but I wasn't overweight to start. Getting better definition and leaning out a bit with Primal workouts.
