as far as abnormal testing, listen to this list: salmonella equivocal (meaning they can't tell positive or negative) but doesn't matter cause your body naturally clears it in 6 weeks without meds... that was back when i was sick as a dog! I actually did have an amoeba i got while on vacation in mexico years ago, that wasn't fun, but easy fix, take metronidazole and you are fine. Chest pain: chest xray normal, EKG abnormal = left ventricular hypertrophy... so then i get US/Stress test and normal and no signs of hypertrophy. So then i get upper endoscopy and entire duodenum (small bowel) granular.... biopsy shows duodenal lymphocytosis and crypt hyperplasia. That finding is really rare, and if you get that finding, it means: celiac disease, small bowel bacterial overgrowth, NSAID overusage, H pylori, systemic autoimmune disorder like MS, RA, and hashimoto, etc, also has been found in any type disorder that disrupts normal bowel motility, such as epilepsy. So, i don't use NSAIDS, negative H pylori, get genetic celiac test (expensive the good test) done and negative celiac... thyroid panels and autoimmune panels for graves, hashimoto, lupus, etc all normal and normal ANA.... so the only thing left is SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) so i get lactulose breath test and it comes back "suggestive of SIBO due to double peak hydrogen counts" so then that means that for some reason normal bacteria that lives in the colon is being pushed up into the small bowel where it can overgrow for an abnormal reason.... being that i have had no other health problems or surgeries, etc that must mean i am experiencing a motility issue of the intestines and i think my autonomic nervous system is not communicating properly to tell my intestines to flow properly for some reason. Oh.. forgot to mention... i also get joint pains and a lot of aching.... so i get my rheumatoid factor checked and it comes back high but just barely high at 20.2... repeat check was normal. DOc says no RA because ANA is negative. THe other thing, for the past year, my kidney functions have been off and i keep being told i am prob just dehydrated, but i do not agree, as i drink well over 64 oz of fluids a day, and eat a lot of vegetables, but i do urinate a lot, so i guess i lose fluids in that matter. I am 35 and healthy. For the past 7 months, i have been experiencing muscle twitching.... go to neurologist and EMG is normal, but he orders MRI because that is the protocol.... i haven't talked to him yet.... but i did see my results becasue i have access and i have DVA of left temporal lobe... which is nothing, though can cause hemifacial spasm and seizures... and i actually did have a seizure when i was 19, eyes rolling back in head and arms flailing about.... though never had another one... but i do get migraines with aura about 3-5 times a year and with the twiching i wonder if it is partial simple seizures causing headaches...and if he does say some mild form of epilepsy i would get meds and that would prob fix the SIBO (bacterial overgrwoth) problem becasue then my brain would tell my intestines to have regular contractions.... DVAs are only found in like 3% of the population..... but as you see, all this testing, everything non-specific, yet can mean something but usually never does. Oh, the other abnormal thing, every time i get labs done my neutrophils are always low and my lymphocytes are always high... but since WBC count is always normal then that means like nothing, i even wondered if it was a mild cyclic neutropenia but never really asked anyone... even if so, nothing would be done about it because it would be so mild. So you see, i can get fancy testing because i have connections but does it ever amount to anything? the answer is no. It only adds more confusion to the puzzle. So what the heck is the point? Why? I do not understand why i obsess over this stuff, and i am not worried or anxious, but i think i do testing because it is for the high, for the high of being correct and proving i am smarter than the doctors, to be like "haha i told you so.... i am brilliant"....so i know there is something not right with me in that matter, some type of personality type problem, i just like that feeling i get when i am correct, i am a real perfectionist. It's gotta be some weird OCD type thing or something.
