i had rheumatic fever about 8 years ago and have not been the same since. from this, i did get arthritis, a heart murmur, and triscupid regurgitation of two heart valves. i was also put on antibiotics for 2 years following for preventative measures, so think that could be contributing to the problems as well. since the rheumatic fever i have had insomnia, very poor digestion, anxiety issues, and low energy.
i have been through just about every test a conventional doctor could give, and they cannot find anything else wrong. they just try to put me on sleeping pills, anxiets meds, and miralax - i refuse! i am frustrated and desperate to get to the bottom of this and to feel well again. i have been very strict paleo for the last two years and while i have seen some improvements, i am still a long ways away from feeling back to where i was before the rhuematic fever.
...has anyone had any experience with rheumatic fever? any advice or things that have helped you recover??
