my feet feel like there is ice all over them. Wearing socks and I have blankets nothing helps. If hot water touches my skin it feels like it's burning.

I just feel horrible all over.

I am on candida and beta blockers meds.

Involuntary head movements
cold
pain
numb feet

what can it be?!

I get these symptoms when flaring or herxing for Babesia. I described it as feeling like my feet were in a bucket of ice water.

I get dry eyes. Babesia throws off aldosterone, so it's difficult to stay hydrated.

My chest pains are like sharp pains in my ribs. I get lots of heart palpitations and my heart rate varies. Low blood pressure and POTS-like symptoms.

Headaches definitely. Always headaches.

Here's what else is weird. When I visit my mom in Florida, I'm so much better. I sleep like a normal person. Have energy.

I can even eat whatever I want, and I'm on such a limited diet! I don't know whether it's the heat or the lack of stress, but all my symptoms return when I come home.

Maybe it's mold. We are looking into that now.

Boxer mom, how does babs affect aldosterone? I also get cold feet still even with cortisol replacement. This usually starts around 4:00pm and I "freeze".

Beta blockers can make your feet and hands cold. I have Sjogren's and my dryness gets worse when my yeast is flaring.

Luvema, magnesium helps with cold hands and feet.

Boxermom, I have the same thing where I feel better at someone elses house (south). I thought maybe it was mold. I guess it could be stress too. Maybe there is something with the altitude.

I can totally relate to feeling better somewhere else. I too came home and thought about mold but we couldn't find anything.

My hands and feet are like ice most of the time and I'm convinced it is from protomyxoa for me.

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.

Babesia f***ed with all my hormones!

I thought I had severe adrenal exhaustion, like bordering on Addison's, but all my testing came back normal.

I even did the ACTH challenge test.

I got some improvement when I started D-Ribose, which is a sugar used by the hypothalamus.

I got total improvement when I treated Babesia. Seriously. It was like all my hormones reset.

Now I think either the neurotoxins or the inflammation (probably both) interfere with the HPA axis, and all my hormonal problems originated in my brain.

I am coming to the conclusion that the vast majority of my symptoms originate in my brain. Huge bummer. Hard to fix a brain. Lots of research on down regulated set points. Scary.

In regards to not finding mold. A lot of mold can be hidden so just because you can't see it does not mean you are free and clear.

75% of the mold in my home was hidden behind walls and flooring.

I have peripheral neuropathy which made my feet numb and when I would step into the bath my feet would feel like they were on fire.

IVIG helped in the past with that but still had the freezing cold hands and feet. That improved so much with treatment for hypothyroidism and hydrocortisone for adrenal fatigue.

9 But he said to me, �My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.� Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ�s power may rest on me.
