Now that we talked about why you have sugar withdrawals, let’s talk about what the symptoms are. After coming off of sugar over 50 times myself and helping hundreds to the same, I have found that sugar addicts actually have different symptoms when they are coming off of sugar. And I don’t really like to give you a long list of negative things to “expect” because maybe none of these will happen to you, only one of them or a bunch of them. It can be helpful to be kind of prepared though so you don’t think something weird is happening while you are breaking this sugar addiction. Check out this one great tool, a free video that I made for you called The 3 Mistakes Sugar Addicts Make and How to Avoid Them. Here is a list of the sugar withdrawals I personally experienced and those I have seen come off sugar and keep in mind they usually only last for a few days if even that:

  1. Feeling sad or down. I will admit, this is then number one thing I would experience when I would come off sugar. But have hope, it would only last a few days, thank God! That is one thing that really motivated me to stay away from sugar because I hate feeling sad and it started to not be worth it, the trade-off of having sugar to being really down for a few days. For me I know this is a major sugar withdrawal because I do NOT experience sadness on a regular basis, only when I am coming off sugar. Its very important if you struggle with depression already, that you guard yourself against this and make sure are aware of this. The good news is, I have seen many people who struggle with moodiness and depression GREATLY improve when they no longer have a sugar addiction. Personally I think a lot of people who struggle with this would see an improvement when they break the sugar addiction.
  2. Headaches. I personally never had this sugar withdrawal but I have heard some say they do.
  3. Fatigue. If you have been jacked up on sugar all the time, your body is used to that rush but you have also really stressed out your adrenal glands, which can make you more tired. The ironic thing is, since I no longer am a sugar addict if I do have sugar, I am so tired that night, it literally puts me to sleep. I really can’t believe it! And when I wake up the next day, I almost feel hung over I am so tired. I never realized that as much when I ate sugar all the time.
  4. Sleep patterns affected. Remember you are detoxing off a poisonous substance that is toxic so you are going to be detoxing as it gets out of your body. If you were addicted to sugar, your body was all out of whack from having blood sugar spikes to insulin surges and your body needs some time to balance back out.
  5. Sugar cravings. Now this one is the obvious side effect. Once you stop eating sugar, one sugar withdrawal can be ridiculously intense cravings for it. Remember, you may be stopping something that has been a habit of yours for 20 years so give yourself a break! Its normal to crave something that has been a part of your life for so long not only mentally but physically as well. Be encouraged that sugar cravings DO go away.

Take “The Quiz” to self-diagnose whether you even are a sugar addict or not, click here.

One of the most important things about breaking a sugar addiction is learning how to think differently about sugar and how you resist temptation in your life. Because if you get off sugar but don’t know how to stay off it, that is something that can be very frustrating. If you want to check out a free internet seminar I am doing click here or go to http://sugaraddictionspecialist.com/internet-seminar/

Be on the lookout for your own sugar withdrawals and feel free to leave a comment and let us know what yours were so we can all know what to look out for.

Mold toxicity is often the end result with constant exposure to mold of a toxic substance. A common misconception among allergists who are untrained in this type of toxicity levels in humans, which is technically not their area of expertise unless they have trained specifically in environmental medicine with their background in immunology, is to do general allergen testing. Most tests usually result in an unequivocal result, a 2+ or less. This induces some physicians to order allergy shots, regardless. These shots are absolutely worthless (and could possibly be harmful) to a person who has been heavily exposed to these mycotoxins as they are already in a state of toxicity. If anything, this could exacerbate the problem. Because many doctors are not trained in this field, they may try to "guess" at a diagnosis.

In laymen's terms, molds produce mycotoxins. These substances, although unseen by the naked eye, are ingested and then enter the body through the skin, mucous and airways. Once ingested, mold has the requirements to colonize and spread. In doing this, it can compromise the immune system and damage everyday processes of the body. Mold and yeast are interchangeable only in their dimorphic state, which is often a big misconception, although both are fungi. There has been a theory of a connection between Autism Spectrum Disorder onset and Candida Albicans in the body. New studies are being conducted during the first quarter of 2006. Updates will follow.

Fungi, which include yeasts, moulds, smuts and mushrooms, are responsible for causing four types of mycotic (fungal) disease:

1. Hypersensitivity - an allergic reaction to moulds and spores;

2. Mycotoxicosis - poisoning by food products contaminated by fungi

3. Mycetismus - the ingestion of preformed toxin (toadstool poisoning)

4. Infection (systemic) - (Mycotoxicosis; the subject below)

The following are a list of the most common symptoms of fungal exposure (bear in mind, people never fit all of below criteria). Most people with some forms of Mycotoxicosis meet at least 8 (recent symptoms) of the following criteria:

  • Fibromyalgia/mps (and several correlated symptoms)
  • Respiratory distress, coughing, sneezing, sinusitis
  • Difficulty swallowing, choking, spitting up (vomiting) mucous
  • Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
  • Burning in the throat and lungs (similar to acid reflux and often misdiagnosed as such)
  • Asthmatic signs; wheezing, shortness in breath, coughing, burning in lungs, etc.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, diarrhea, sharp abdominal pains, stomach lesions
  • Bladder, liver, spleen, or kidney pain
  • Dark or painful urine
  • Dirt-like taste in mouth, coated tongue
  • Food allergies/leaky gut syndrome/altered immunity
  • Memory loss; brain fog, slurred speech, occasionally leading to dementia
  • Vision problems
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Large boils on neck (often a sign of anaphylaxis )
  • Yellowing of nails, ridges, or white marks under nail
  • Thyroid irregularities, sometimes leading to complete dysfunction; adrenal problems
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety/depression, heart palpitations - confusion, PTSD
  • Extreme blood pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides irregularities
  • Ringing in ears, balance problems (very common), dizziness, loss of hearing (aspergillus niger)
  • Chronic fatigue (also included under this classification directional confusion)
  • Intermittent face flushing; almost always systemic, Called the Mylar Flush (neurological))
  • Night head sweats, and drooling while sleeping, profuse sweating
  • Multiple chemical sensitivity; only upon exposure to Stachybotrys and Chaetomium
  • Nose bleeds (stachybotrys)
  • Bruising/scarring easily; rash or hives, bloody lesions all over the skin (Often systemic, see images; skin )
  • Reproductive system complications; infertility, changes in menstrual cycles, miscarriage
  • Sudden weight changes (Detoxifier genotypes tend to gain weight, non-detoxifier genotypes tend to lose weight)
  • Cancer
  • Hair loss, very brittle nails, temporary loss of fingerprints (in rare cases)
  • Joint/muscle stiffness and pain
  • Irregular heart beat/heart attack
  • Seizures, inadvertent body jerking, twitching, inadvertent facial movements or numbness in face
  • Hypersensitivity when re-exposed to molds, which can lead to anaphylaxis
  • Anaphylaxis upon re-exposure to mycotoxin producing molds
  • Death, in extreme cases

Note: despite inaccurate and misleading reports by theorists regarding immuno-compromised, babies, and the elderly being more susceptible, this is a big misconception as exposure to the T-2 mycotoxins found in many types of current indoor molds will poison anyone in time; no one is immune. The reason for this conflicting information is that studies have never been conducted to prove this. If so called experts are going to make such a broad and misleading statement, they may as well say that this same category of people is more susceptible to SARS, West Nile Virus, AIDS, and cancer. The T-2 mycotoxins found in many of these molds are the exact same T-2 mycotoxins that have killed widespread groups of innocent people with Yellow Rain, a biological warfare agent.

And you'll also get the NEA "Eczema Basics" booklets for adults and children

Eczema is the name for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. There are several types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and stasis dermatitis.

Eczema is very common. And in many cases, it’s also manageable. In fact, over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema.

Eczema flares often show up on the backs of the knees

Living with eczema can be an ongoing challenge. The word “eczema” is derived from a Greek word meaning “to boil over,” which is a good description for the red, inflamed, itchy patches that occur during flare-ups. Eczema can range from mild, moderate, to severe.

It’s most common for babies and children to develop eczema on their face (especially the cheeks and chin), but it can appear anywhere on the body and symptoms may be different from one child to the next. More often than not, eczema goes away as a child grows older, though some children will continue to experience eczema into adulthood.

Adults can develop eczema, too, even if they never had it as a child.

Eczema is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else. While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, researchers do know that people who develop eczema do so because of a combination of genes and environmental triggers. When an irritant or an allergen “switches on” the immune system, skin cells don’t behave as they should causing an eczema flare-up.

If you’re having trouble with lousy breath on the keto diet, check out my article on keto and bad breath.

I hope this helps. I know it helped me get over the worst of the dreaded keto flu.

We have been asked a lot about the swine influenza and whether or not people need to get a swine flu vaccine. Here is the latest info on the subject.

Swine influenza is actually a broad term used to refer to a number of types of influenza viruses that are contracted by pigs. Some types of swine flu can also be contracted by humans. Humans can get swine flu from pigs, but this is pretty rare. Humans can also pass swine flu on to other humans.

The current (2009) outbreak of swine flu (H1N1) is not actually a virus that people can get from pigs. It is very similar to a virus that pigs get, but it is not the same. The name is deceiving.

People spread this swine flu virus to other people the same way the regular flu is spread. It's a virus and when people with swine flu cough or sneeze, tiny droplets of the virus are sprayed into the air. If you breathe in these droplets, you can catch swine flu. Also, if a person with swine flu coughs or sneezes on something like a phone or doorknob and you touch that object and then touch your mouth or nose, you can catch the flu.

While most cases of swine influenza are fairly mild, it can be a very serious illness and people do die from it. People die from the regular flu, as well, but the swine flu is more likely to be deadly. It is wise to take steps to prevent getting sick.

A swine flu vaccine has recently been approved, and is expected to be available around mid-October of 2009. The swine flu vaccine will probably require two different shots, given a week or two apart. The vaccine will take a couple weeks to "kick in," so you would not actually be immune until some time in November. Contact your doctor in October if you are interested in getting a swine flu vaccine. The regular flu vaccine will not protect you against swine flu.

Treatment for swine influenza is pretty much the same as treatment for other types of flu. In most cases, the virus will clear up on its own even without any treatment. However, treatment may speed the recovery process, and there is treatment available to help with the symptoms as well.

Antiviral medications may be prescribed to speed to the recovery process. They work by preventing the virus from replicating itself. Antiviral medications are not usually necessary, but can be helpful. You will need to see your doctor and get a prescription if you want to try them.

There are a number of over-the-counter remedies that can help relieve flu symptoms. Try Tylenol for fever, an antihistamine for runny nose and sneezing, and a cough suppressant for cough. You can have problems if you take too many over-the-counter drugs at one time, though, so you might do best to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about which medications would be best to take.

Although over-the-counter flu remedies will provide some relief, we have found two products that may be significantly more effective:

  • A highly recommended natural flu remedy is Sambucol. It is a homeopathic remedy that relieves flu symptoms, including fever, headache, body aches, chills, sore throat, coughing, and sneezing. It also helps speed the recovery process.

See your doctor in mid-fall if you want to get a swine flu vaccine. If you do catch the flu, you do not normally need to see a doctor, as the symptoms will generally go away on their own without treatment. However, if your symptoms are particularly severe, if you have a high fever, if your symptoms last longer than a week, or if you have trouble breathing, you should see a doctor. While most cases of the flu, including swine flu, are fairly mild, the flu can be serious, even deadly, so contact your doctor if you have concerns.

Animal influenza viruses are distinct from human seasonal influenza viruses and do not easily transmit between humans. However, zoonotic influenza viruses - animal influenza viruses that may occasionally infect humans through direct or indirect contact - can cause disease in humans ranging from a mild illness to death.

Birds are the natural hosts for avian influenza viruses. After an outbreak of A(H5N1) virus in 1997 in poultry in Hong Kong SAR, China, since 2003, this avian and other influenza viruses have spread from Asia to Europe and Africa. In 2013, human infections with the influenza A(H7N9) virus were reported in China.

Most swine influenza viruses do not cause disease in humans, but some countries have reported cases of human infection from certain swine influenza viruses. Close proximity to infected pigs or visiting locations where pigs are exhibited has been reported for most human cases, but some limited human-to-human transmission has occurred.

Just like birds and pigs, other animals such as horses and dogs, can be infected with their own influenza viruses (canine influenza viruses, equine influenza viruses, etc.).

Wichtige Schritte bei Symptome Grippe bzw. einer Influenza:

Bei einer leichten Erkältung muss niemand gleich zum Arzt laufen. Die meisten Patienten kennen bereits ihren Körper und wissen, was am besten hilft. Kommt Fieber ins Spiel, sollte niemand damit scherzen, weil es hier nicht nur um den eigenen Körper geht. Wer mit einer richtigen Grippe in die Arbeit geht, sollte einem das überhaupt gelingen, steckt damit eventuell unschuldige Menschen an. Deswegen sollte der Weg zum Arzt, doch an erster Stelle stehen. Bei der Influenza sind ebenso andere Maßnahmen erforderlich, als bei einer einfachen Erkältung. Bei den Influenza A Viren wird beispielsweise Amantadin zur Therapie eingesetzt. Das sind Medikamente, die nur der Arzt verschreibt. Influenza Viren sollte niemand unterschätzen, da sie wirklich gefährlich sein können. Hühnersuppe alleine hilft in dem Fall nur wenig weiter.

You may have found our site because you are concerned that you may have a parasitic infection. In this section, we will help you by telling you which parasite symptoms are most commonly associated with parasitic infections. Armed with a little knowledge, you will then be able to take the right actions to move you in a healthier, parasite-free direction.

The parasite symptoms that are associated with parasites and the infections they cause vary greatly and can indicate other causes. Some parasites can exist in the body for years and never produce a single symptom. Others will have symptoms so severe you would require immediate medical attention. It can be very hard to pinpoint an exact cause of some of the symptoms or even be misdiagnosed.

Chronic fatigue or extreme tiredness is a common symptom of a parasitic infection. The reason someone infected by a parasite may feel so tired is because the parasite living in the intestines will sap the nutrients out of the food he or she digests. The parasite will thrive, and its human host will be under nourished.

Iron deficiency, or anemia, is often caused by worm parasites in the intestines. This is a major contributor to feeling chronically fatigued. Some differences between chronic fatigue and just your run-of-the-mill tiredness are that chronic fatigue will not improve with rest, becomes worse with both mental and physical activity, and is associated with feeling weak and sore muscles.

Since many human parasites make their home in the digestive track, their hosts are likely to experience digestive related symptoms. Most of these are very unpleasant and can be embarrassing. They include belching, excessive flatulence or gas, vomiting, bloody stools, and diarrhea. Some may experience fecal incontinence or oily stools.

It’s typically those microscopic and pesky protozoa that cause the more uncomfortable symptoms like diarrhea or loose stools. This is because they release prostaglandin which is substance that causes a loss in chloride and sodium. The result is stools that are watery because the body is attempting to rid itself of the attacker.

Constipation can also be caused because some of the larger parasitic worms can lodge themselves in the intestines and cause a blockage. Over-the-counter stool softeners and a healthy diet should clear up natural bouts of constipation. You may have a parasitic worm causing a blockage if stool softeners don’t provide relief.

A common condition caused by these intestinal parasites is irritable bowel syndrome. This is a painful and uncomfortable condition that is a result of the parasite irritating the wall of the intestine and causing swelling. Many doctors have been quick to dismiss IBS as just something people must cope with. In the year 2000, researchers in England did a study that showed a significant link between the parasite giardia and irritable bowel syndrome. Ridding the body of this parasite gave great relief to the patients who had previously been diagnosed with IBS.

Since parasites don’t always stay put in the intestines, but rather move about and enter the blood stream, nervous system, and the organs, joint and muscle pain can be a symptom to look out for. This joint pain can commonly be mistaken for arthritis when in reality it is caused by inflammation due to the parasites becoming encased in a sac and existing despite our body’s best efforts to expel it.

Some parasites can cause a person to become agitated, nervous, or anxious. Researchers believe this is due to the body reacting in a way to try and rid itself of the foreign body. It’s also known that parasites release waste which can have an adverse effect on the central nervous system.

Poisoning is most often due to contaminated food or water. Arsenic is a natural compound that occurs in the soil, sometimes in dangerously high concentrations. Many cities and municipalities filter and test their water, but not all do; people who drink from private, particularly old, wells may also be at risk. Drinking only filtered, tested water is a good way to rule out this possibility. In rarer cases, people are intentionally poisoned, usually by a caretaker or someone else with direct access to food and water supply. Anyone who suspects intentional tampering should seek help from local authorities. Arsenic poisoning isn’t always fatal, but it can have life-altering consequences if left untreated for long periods of time.

43) To the lady that said she can not think of anyone who would want to hurt her. My own sister.

41) What poison acts slowly? I have been had tummy problems off and on for over a year now. I've been to the ER and the doctor never found an issue, although for the last 4 months not hardly a day goes by that I am not ill?

I suspect I am being given something, but what, I have no idea.

40) If you believe someone is poisoning you, there is an easy test. When he pours coffee for you and him, switch cups on him.

39) Are you people serious? I never dreamed this kind of thing was so widespread!

The reason that I'm here is because, I just read about that doctor whose trial is going on about him poisoning his wife with cyanide! That always piques my interest, because I truly believe my mother was murdered years ago by a con artist (his ex-wife and their daughter) that she married, but I could never prove anything because, I didn't know what type of poison he used.

It's a very long story, but it involved a substantial amount of money and property and as soon as the property was paid off, he talked my mother into purchasing a pre-need plan (for her burial plot and funeral) and within less than a year she was suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer! All the years before she'd been as healthy as a horse, with no health problems at all! Anyway, she died a few years later and I knew he had done something to hasten her death so, he could get all the money and property, which he did!

It has taken a great toll on me not being able to get any help or be able to prove anything, but what is still disturbing is how her skin had turned yellowish with tiny purple dots after she died (along with some other similar things described here). At the time, I can remember asking why her skin was so yellow and her husband repeatedly said it was from all of the carrot juice she'd been drinking! Then, years later, I learned that the purple dots are definitely tell-tale signs of someone being poisoned, yet nobody seemed to have even noticed!

Anyway, it turns out that even if I could find out for sure what he did to her, there's nothing I could do about it now, because he's dead and he passed down all of the money/assets to his evil daughter, who, ironically, had a husband that suddenly dropped dead of cancer too!

So, all of you who keep having strange things happen to you (especially, on a consistent basis), if I were you, I'd try to set him/her up with a hidden camera/video, a recorder, setting up the containers in a specific manner so that you can see if they've been moved/used, marking the levels of fluid, etc., as well as, saving some of the things like shampoo, drinks, etc. that you think have made you ill by pouring small amounts in bottles, so if necessary, they can be tested later.

Forgetfulness is often believed to be just another part of aging, but for many menopausal women, it is directly linked to their changing hormones. According to a study that was published in the journal “Menopause,” foggy memory is often most problematic during the early post-menopause years, and women may struggle with even routine mental tasks.

Menopause brings with it many physical changes. In some cases, symptoms can be mild while in others, they can be dramatic and can cause significant disruption to your life. As many as a third of women experience mood swings during perimenopause and menopause. Emotional meltdowns, sudden tears and increased emotional instability may also have an underlying clinical origin, which is why it is important to discuss your symptoms with your health care provider.

Tossing and turning is not the best way to get a good night’s sleep, but it becomes increasingly common as a woman approaches and goes through menopause. Decreased hormone production and the cessation of periods is a normal part of aging, but the sudden and often-tumultuous changes associated with hormonal fluctuations can cause a wide range of symptoms varying in degree from mild to severe. Many women experience trouble sleeping due to night sweats and other issues.

Menopause brings with it numerous physical and emotional changes. Many women experience an increase in stress, anxiety levels and may even suffer from panic attacks. These may be due not to a sudden onset of psychiatric problems or emotional issues, but are instead related to the dramatic hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause. Women in perimenopause, or the period before menopause, are also likely to experience an increase in anxious feelings and stress.

Women who tend to be sensitive to the hormonal changes that occur throughout life may also be more sensitive to the hormonal fluctuations of menopause. If you suffered from premenstrual syndrome, experienced mood swings during pregnancy or suffered from post-partum depression, you may also be more likely to suffer from depression during menopause. Women who have a personal or family history of being clinically depressed may also be at an increased risk.

Hormonal fluctuations are a fact of life for women throughout most of their lives. Women who suffer from menstrual migraines may be more likely to also suffer from headaches during perimenopause and menopause. That is because the uneven hormone changes associated with perimenopause and menopause can trigger migraines and other types of head pain. Unfortunately, this kind of pain can interfere with your daily life and relationships and increase feelings of anxiety or irritability.

Aches and pains are commonly accepted as normal parts of aging. However, pain all over the body can also be associated with menopause. In fact, more than half of women experiencing menopause or perimenopause, the period of time preceding menopause, will experience joint pain, discomfort and widespread pain.

Most women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their mid- to late-40s, and while their symptoms may vary widely and range from mild to severe in intensity, most have few serious or long-term consequences. Losing bone mass, however, is one symptom that should never be taken lightly or ignored. Osteopenia and osteoporosis refer to the porous bones that become more common in older women.

Joint pain can severely interfere with your life. The stiffness, inflammation and slow movement of painful joints can slow you down and make you feel old before your time. Although many people associated painful, swollen joints with aging or arthritis, it can often be associated with hormonal imbalances, and once these imbalances are treated, the symptoms and discomfort can be alleviated. If you are suffering from joint inflammation, addressing hormonal issues can allow you to once again enjoy a healthy, active, fully engaged life.

Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis, a condition that increases the risk of bone fractures due to a severe decrease in bone density. Women’s bone mass reaches peak density when they are in their 20s and early 30s, and as they age, their bone mass begins to decrease. After menopause, the bone loss accelerates primarily due to the loss of estrogen, which reduces collagen levels.

Many women consider hair loss to be a man’s problem, so when they notice their brush has more hair in it and their hair feels thinner than it once did, they can experience quite a shock. Is their hair thinning? It’s quite possible. The hormonal changes, including decreased estrogen and progesterone, associated with menopause can cause noticeable thinning of the hair, and it occurs in half of women by the time they reach 50. Unlike baldness in men, however, women’s hair loss tends to be more diffuse and spread evenly throughout the scalp, which leads to overall thinning rather than a single area of baldness.

Menopause brings with it many changes, including changes to your appearance. Thinning or sagging skin can lead to premature aging while diffuse hair loss can cause thinner hair. The same hormonal fluctuations that cause these changes can also cause thin or brittle nails. While many other symptoms of perimenopause and menopause can have a serious effect on your life, thinning hair and nails may not. However, they can have an impact on your self-esteem and leave you feeling self-conscious about the way you look.

Recent research reveals that more than 25 percent of post-menopausal women are at risk of losing teeth. A study published in Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology examined more than 1,000 women who had undergone menopause, and nearly 300 of them lost a tooth during the five-year study. The tooth loss is believed to be related to hormone deficiencies and osteoporosis, but women who are overweight, smoke, have poor oral health or diabetes may be at an ever greater risk of losing teeth.

Red, swollen and bleeding gums are generally symptoms of gingivitis or gum disease, but they can also be linked to menopause. The hormone swings of menopause and perimenopause can cause gums to become irritated and inflamed and increase the risk of gum irritation, redness, swelling, bleeding and other oral health problems.

Hot flashes are a well-known symptom of menopause, and while burning tongue may not be as well known, it can be just as bothersome. Burning sensations in the mouth are usually linked to the hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, and they can be easily ignored or attributed to other factors. However, burning tongue can be associated with dental health complications, including reduced saliva flow, a change in saliva composition, changes in nerve function and severe pain.

Women who are entering menopause will often go through many different physical and emotional changes. Their bodies can change shape, and they can begin to gain weight often around their midsections. These changes are generally directly or indirectly related to the hormonal fluctuations and declines in estrogen production. Losing muscle mass is a common menopause symptom that can cause weight gain, back pain, aches and pains.

Menopause refers to the cessation of monthly periods and the end of a woman’s fertility. Most women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their middle to late 40s and their last period in their 50s.

Better plans and designs while creating dams and irrigation schemes can prevent this disease from spreading among the nearby population.

Symptoms of AIDS are caused by the deterioration of the immune system and the decline of CD4+ T cells, which are the immune system's key infection fighters. As soon as HIV enters the body, it begins to destroy these cells. Some common symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week
  • Dry cough
  • Memory loss, depression and neurological disorders
  • Pneumonia
  • Profound, unexplained fatigue
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Recurring fever or profuse night sweats
  • Red, brown, pink or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose or eyelids
  • Swollen lymph glands in the armpits, groin or neck
  • White spots or unusual blemishes on the tongue, in the mouth, or in the throat

Because people with AIDS have weakened immune systems, they're more prone to infections, called opportunistic infections. Opportunistic infections are caused by organisms that typically don't cause disease in healthy people but affect people with damaged immune systems. These organisms attack when there's an opportunity to infect.

Deterioration of the immune system is caused by the decline in CD4+ T cells, which are key infection fighters. As soon as HIV enters the body, it begins to destroy these cells.

Symptoms of opportunistic infections common with AIDS include:

  • Coma
  • Coughing and shortness of breath
  • Difficult or painful swallowing
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Fever
  • Mental symptoms such as confusion and forgetfulness
  • Nausea, abdominal cramps and vomiting
  • Seizures and lack of coordination
  • Severe, persistent diarrhea
  • Severe headaches
  • Vision loss
  • Weight loss

Many opportunistic infections associated with AIDS cause serious illness. Some may be prevented. Below is a list of infections and how they affect the body.

Cryptoccoccal Menigitis — This is a yeast-like fungus infection that usually involves the brain and lungs, although it can affect almost any organ. The fungus that causes this condition is found in soil throughout the world. It is most common in soil contaminated by bird droppings. This disease most often occurs when a person's CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

HIV-related Encephalopathy — Encephalopathy is a term for diseases that alter brain function or structure, leading to problems with cognitive function, or mental processes, and memory. In people with HIV and AIDS, encephalopathy is usually caused by an infectious agent, such as a bacteria, virus or prion.

Encephalopathy most often occurs when a person's CD4+T cell count falls below 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Toxoplasma-seropositive patients who have a CD4+T cell count of less than 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood should be treated with prophylaxis to prevent developing encephalopathy.

    Public Health England reports(9th January) that flu like illness is at a high compared to the last three years. They are recommending that people at risk can still have the flu jab- up take by even at risk people under 65 is very low at 50 %). Viruses do not respond to antibiotics but I guess GPs get desperate when people keep going back to their doctor with symptoms and so will try anything.

    Cannot put a link in here otherwise the system will block this entry. but just type public health England flu in and the report is on their front page.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and pointers if anyone finds a miracle cure please post it we're desperate.

    we have just started getting over it my partner came down with it in earlie december he was rushed to hospital and told his white blood cells was not acting the way they was so i dont know if this has something to do with it but he is still been sick during the nights now and sleepy all the time the effects he had while e had the flu bug then i caught it 22nd december im still having problems now too!

    im not as bad as i was the first week i had it but i have not gone back to normal my daughter 5 had it firsst in november early and then only managed to get rid of it this month everybody i know has had it now and keep re catching it or the symtoms dont go im from yorkshire

    Thank you Steph thats really helpful as some of my relatives are in Yorkshire (Leeds and Hebden Bridge). Im not one for conspiracy theories but I cant believe that theres been nothing on the national news about how widespread this outbreak is and how long it knocks patients out for. My sister in law is a GP and she gets loads of cases and the same faces week after week. My 12 year old daughter is off school today because she feels barely able to move her neck her skin and her joints are really hurting Im taking her to the doctors (again. ) shortly. My symptoms are a terrible sharp cough and the same aching skin joints neck plus being full up with phlegm which is vile in itself. If the pain could be dealt with it would be something but nothing touches it!

    when my partner took my son to doctors he said they was hundreds of patients that week with the same thing im left with weak legs sharp pains in head and vile phelm i hope you feel well soon god knows what it is even my cbt worker had it when i went my friend had the flu jab and still caught it i did find something online saying that its like a flu virus thats related but its making the flu jab not work or something never had anything like it though suppose new illness's start all the time though

    Sounds rough! Hope everyone feels better soon. Here in the States, my city is number three in the nation for having the most cases of the flu. So far I have been fortunate, as well as my children.

    Could there be something in your environment that is causing these drawn out symptoms? My first thought was possible allergies.

    The fact that its spread across friends and family around the UK doesnt really make that stand up and that my daughter and I have been prescribed antihistermines too which had no effect doesnt really point to that but yes Ive thought about it. Ive wondered about methane which can cause flu like symptoms or something in our diet. Thank you though Ill try to see if theres any commonality between friends and family and their environment.

    I'm not from the UK but from California. However, my wife and I have experienced the exact same symptoms since approximately October 10, 2014. Started with dry persistent non productive cough. 1st Dr. Said a cold. 3 weeks later visited second Dr given prednisone and antibiotics 4 weeks later 3rd Dr. Again gave prednisone and cough med's. Cough ceased for 3 days then returned with more like cold symptoms and productive cough with clear sputum. Still persistent cough, going to Dr. Again this evening. Wish me luck.

    My husband and I have had the same symptoms since early December, constant coughing, finding it hard to breathe, head cold, muzzy head, neck aching etc. etc. and it lasted until about 2 weeks ago and we both felt ok - as we are singers it was a great relief not having to try and sing through the coughing, we had a weeks respite and we both woke up on Thursday morning with the symptoms back with a vengence, in fact during a coughing fit today I managed to cough up what looked like a piece of lung. almost solid cream coloured thing that had fine red lines in it, a bit frightening. We haven't been to the doctors as having spoken to a lot of other people that have similar symptoms they can't get anything done, so it isn't worth bothering, a couple were taken into hospital with breathing difficulties, I think they suffered with asthma as well, I find it really hard to breath and try to do so shallowly to stave off the coughing fit, we are getting through a mountain of paracetamol. By the way, we are on the south coast of England.

    i have read your post and can not believe you have not seen a g p after coughing up what you describe and suggest you go and see a doctor a s a p,as you dont know exactly what you are suffering from,i know how you feel with doctors but you do need to be seen to sooner rather than later,i am not trying to frighten you in any way,but need a mdics advice on what could be wrong,good luck.

    I feel awful for all of these commenters!! I went through awful anxiety/depression myself, took various meds (xanax, clonopin, and others that I don't recall now because I was in such a brain fog). I felt detached and suicidal on the meds. I changed my diet dramatically, switched to organic food (from cherrios and poptarts!). I found Dr Atkins vita nutrient solution book and took amino acids, b vitamins, GABA, Sam-e, valerian root, as much as I could afford because I felt.so awful! And those things worked for me! It took about 3-4 weeks. I remember waking up one morning and consciously thinking "I don't feel so bad!" And I never looked back. I suffered from anxiety for at least 20 years, starting at age 13. Did you know low thyroid can cause anxiety? Sure enough I had low thyroid! I also treat that naturally. I'm on this thread now because my teenage daughter has severe depression, and she doesn't want to try my therapies. She has it in her head that she just wants a drug. I found these threads taking about horrible withdrawal and I feel terrible for everyone, and sure that I don't want her on this drug. My advice to every one, eat real food! Our food supply is nothing like what got us here over hundreds of thousands of years. I was eating the standard American diet (acronym is SAD) and I was paying the price. You can't eat sugar and poptarts and spaghetti and expect your body and brain to function properly. Yes, it's more expensive, but if you look at it the other way, cheap food is a rip off, because it's not giving you what you need to be healthy, and illness stinks!

    I was on lexapro for 5 days for anxiety.it made most of my symptoms worse and I had to stop given that I'm self employed and was risking the loss of major contracts due to its side effects. This may sound odd but for years I was on a drug called Dexedrine(dates back to the turn of the century)for mild ADHD.it may sound(as it did to me)counter intuitive given that it's an amphetamine but this drug really helps calm the mind and it does it almost instantly.ive tested this on over half a dozen people who at one point were struggling with mild(divorce)to major depression(my wife)and everyone had good to great things to say about it.it was perceived by a psychiatrist and I can't thank him enough it literally saved lives.after 10 years I started weaning myself off with few side effects(I started on a large dose 15mg x 2) if any because of a back injury.i was fine till last year when I started experiencing chest pain and a year later after a ton of tests and a bit of a breakdown with realized it was anxiety. I made sure I had a bit of a stock pile of the drug just in case and would use it on occasion when I needed a mental/physical boost or to help a friend in dire straights. with the green light from their doctor. Now here is my point,if you research this drug it isolates the same protein as amphetamines and cocaine. this apparently makes it the latest greatest drug for depression,I couldn't disagree more. there's no money to be made on Dexedrine therefore doctors are leds by the nose and prescribe the latest greatest. Within 45 minutes of taking the first dose I was a changed person(a bit of euphoria but hey who doesn't enjoy that,especially after feeling like crap for whatever amount of time prior)happy,up lifting thoughts concentration(I know I use a lot of brackets. I'm still in a fog from this drug)this is still the drug of choice for the us Air Force when on bombing missions. You have to ask yourself,why in the world the most advanced military on earth use such an "out dated drug"?Because it works,fast with no or little side effects. a B2 bomber is worth 2 billion dollars,they certainly aren't skimping on the price of drugs.im currently using 5mg twice a day to counteract the drug(otherwise I'm useless at this point)and will up the dose accordingly over the next few days and hopefully feel normal again. Oh yeah I forgot my side effects. tons of energy,laser focus,happy,slight decrease in appetite for the first week or so,positive /creative thoughts and it(according to everyone who's used t around me who has used it,seems to lift the heavy vail like feeling associated with depression and some if not most anxieties. All this being said,this is not a silver bullet or cure all for everyone and your doctor(who in all likely hood will be ill informed on the subject)may not want or know how to prescribe it but it's worth a shot and if not a psychiatrist would be more willing to given that my doctor was almost opposed to it from the start.Bare in mind I've tried other drugs pre and post Dexedrine and one I tried that was "non addictive" had again terrible side effects and had me back on Dexedrine within a few weeks.ok one history lesson your doctor won't want to here,the only reason hitler was able to convince his army to go deep into Russia with heavy loses,frostbite and starvation was do to a form of Dexedrine. He and his doctors were fully aware of the psychological effects of this drug given that he himself was an amphetamine user.

    Well I hope this helps someone if not many people but I must state that this is what I and others in my inner circle have experienced when in their darkest hours and maybe something you would want to explore. yes it's an amphetamine and with over 11 years full time experience at a high dose then another 2 at lower I can personally report no ill side effects just like the few long term studies have shown.

    Good luck to everyone and please do your research before you approach your doctor. be armed with concrete research(all of the above and more)and your doctor maybe willing to give it a try. it's not for everyone but it is for most. and remember it targets the same area of the brain as lexapro. oh yeah cognitive behavioural therapy should be accompanied with any of these drugs for long term success.

    I took Lexapro @ 20mg daily for 6 years. I weaned off by decreasing to 15mg for a month, then 10mg for a month and finally, 5mg for a month. I have been off for two weeks now. The past week, my skin will start feeling like fire ants have bit me. It starts on my face and travels to my arms, then chest and stomach and then finally my legs. Also itching. I am sleeping about 4-5 hours a night (Not all at once) but I awake several times a night. I have NO anxiety. Is anyone else suffering from the stinging nerve issue?

    Did they finally go away? I am having that exact same feeling for a month now.:(

    I have just started reducing my amount from 5MG to.25MG - I understand just how you feel, I've been on Lexapro for 6 years. Ugh.. Ugh. Ugh. Do you every get the feeling of feeling out of you body. So hard to explain.

    I'm also cutting down my clonazepam (Good God).

    I don't even know what feeling normal is like.

    Stay strong. I'm in the same boat.

    Yes I am getting those out of body sensations too! I thought I was going completely insane. I'm weaning off lexapro at this time and just stopped cold turkey after only three days of weaning off. The next day I felt like my brain lagged behind my body movements by maybe a couple of milliseconds. It's like my proprioception went offline for a bit, and then a moment later I'm back. Even breathing felt alien to my brain.

    If this is all part of the withdrawl, I will deal with it as well as all the other withdrawal symptoms. But this one hell of a ride I never want to experience again.

    I have been taking Lexapro for about 10 years because I have depression. my doctor wants me so stop taking it and put me on something else because I now have I also have P.D.S.D now. do you know if I will go crazy and bring my self to the edge of suicide like I was before I was taking it.

    My primary care doctor started me on 10mg Lexapro. I had numerous side effects, which included an intense hot flash in the first week or so of taking the medicine. I also had 3 itchy welts form on my chest region, the doctor told me to stop taking the Lexapro after I told him about the itchy welts. I felt tingling and electric type shocking throughout my body. I couldn't sleep well at times, and had some very intense scary thoughts and heightened sensation to commit suicide. After noticing the itchy welts, I decided to stop the Lexapro. It made me feel the way I hoped it would a good bit of the time, but it was not worth all the other feelings it induced. I cut back to 5mg for the last week to taper myself off, knowing that was the best way to stop meds. I told my doctor about the itchy welts after I dropped to the 5mg the last week, that's when he told me to stop taking the Lexapro. I said (knowing I already had begun that process) should I quit slowly, he said no, stop it immediately. I am afraid to take any medications these days, I have trouble with the trusting, especially considering the precarious side effects. I hope this was helpful in some small way.

    I was recently switched from Prozac to lexapro. About three months. My dr recently upped my dose from 10mg to 20mg even after I told him how itchy and restless I've become. I am covered in hives daily. Feel like I can't relax and constantly shake my leg or foot.. Thought I was just crazy until reading these posts! I have literally scratched my arms legs and hands raw. Grrrrrrrr!! And the dreams are the worst to boot. Now reading about the withdrawal symptoms scares me. Facing a lot in my life soon and really need the extra help, but not sure what to do now.

    I was on lexapro for about a year. It really helped my anxiety but the downside was I gained 25 pounds. I was constantly eating when I was not hungry and craving sweets. I had no energy to do anything and would come home from work and by go to the sofa. I finally decided I couldn't gain anymore weight and discussed it with my Dr. He advised I wean off of it gradually. I was on 20mg and instead of taking it every day I took it every other day for 3 weeks. Then I dropped it to 10 mg every other day for a week. I was ok for about 5 days. Then I started crying over nothing and getting irritable. Then it got worse. I was blowing up screaming at my husband over things that would normally not bother me. Having temper fits, throwing things, or sobbing over the least little stress. I have a long commute to work and road rage was scary. After a week of this I went back to Dr.and he put me on low dose of Welbutrin to be increased after 2 weeks. After a few days I started to calm down some. After 10 days I still cry easily and get irritated with any little stress but I am able to control myself.

    I took 10mg of lexapro for 7 years for panic attacks.Except for 13 pounds of weight gain I felt great.

    Six month ago I decided wean of to loose the weight.No problem!

    I lost my excess weight within 3 weeks and felt great without any side effects.That lasted 4 month and when my brother died 2 month ago my panic attacks came back worse than ever.

    After weeks of misery I am back on lexapro and feel good again.

    I guess I will take it for the rest of my live.

    After becoming rather sick I visited an urgent care facility where the doctor, without notifying her of my past diagnosis of depression and GAD, prescribed me a prescription of a months worth of 20mg Lexapro. I am newish to the area and have a hard time actually sitting down and doing things like finding a primary care physician or psychiatrist so I have neither at the moment sadly. After finally finding a doctor the earliest they can get me in is July, needless to say I can barely function around people. I am an emotional mess, I constantly get dizzy and the frequency of the brain zaps is almost debilitating. I have almost been getting random numbness and a needle like sensation throughout my left side of my body. I also haven't slept well in the past week since the end of my prescription. If I had known I wouldn't have been able to find a doctor with earlier openings I wouldn't have started taking it. This is ridiculous and I can barely function at work due to the withdrawals symptoms, which have also put a strain on my relationships with my significant other as well as my roommates.

    I have been taking Lexapro 20 mg for about 9 years. I began experiencing extreme irritability, anger and frustration. My doctor began weaning me off and adding Zoloft. That didn't work. Now my doctor is taking me down to 10 mg every day and 100 Wellbutrin. The ringing in my head is horrible. It hasn't stopped for 2 weeks. Has anyone else experienced this withdrawal symptom?

    I am looking for comments from people who have successfully quit and the noticeable positive differences they have experienced. Like, they no longer have anxiety, depression, brain fog and etc., All I can find are the horrible withdrawal symptoms that I praying not to experience. I am wondering if those things go away or if the damage is done? I started drinking diet drinks when I was about 25 and never had any anxiety issues. At 26 or 27, I developed issues with anxiety and I am thinking this could be why and I am hoping the end result will be no more anxiety. Are their success stories anywhere?

    Yes…I quit diet coke almost 3 months ago. I feel better but it took awhile. The headaches and nausea were terrible for a few days and gradually everything got better. I’m less tired most notably. It seems like my memory is better. I absolutely am saving a ton of money. Hang in there. It gets better.

    Hi Leanne,
    Yes, I quit back in September and after going through the withdrawal headaches, my issue with chronic migraines and headaches is GONE. I think the aspartame in the Crystal Light I was drinking daily was a huge factor. I also have to say that just prior to letting go of aspartame, I also went gluten-free. So that probably contributed, as well. But I think I remember that my headaches went away after giving up the aspartame.

    I have struggled with some of those other things you are mentioning – brain fog, depression, anxiety, etc. I don’t know how much the aspartame contributed to these issues, though I am convinced it didn’t help. But I also have an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and the more I learn about it, the more I am understanding that food sensitivities of all sorts can (and usually do) contribute to these types of symptoms. So one suggestion if you don’t feel top-notch after going through your aspartame detox is to clean up some other areas of your diet from common triggers such as gluten, soy and refined sugars. The Paleo diet is actually a great place to start. You also might consider getting your thyroid levels checked. The thyroid plays a HUGE role in the body and literally affects the function of every single cell, so if it’s not producing enough hormone, you are going to feel it and what you are describing are very common symptoms. If you decide to get it checked, INSIST that your doctor check TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and thyroid antibodies. Many (most) docs will only rely on the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) but that is not a true picture. The Free T3 and Free T4 show how much active thyroid hormone is truly in your system. And the presence of antibodies would mean that you have Hashimoto’s, which is the autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid. Very treatable with the right medication, diet and lifestyle. If any of this rings true for you, or you are at least curious, then do some online research.

    Thanks to both of you. Today, is a week without any diet drinks or aspartame and I feel very blessed because I feel fine. I think it was the second day, I had a headache all day long, but I was also having sinus issues, so it’s hard to say which was causing it. My 17 year old son quit drinking them also (by default because I haven’t bought them) and he is having headaches, dizziness and some blurred vision.

    People have suggested that I get my thyroid checked because my hair has been thinning, also. However, I read that aspartame can cause thinning hair, mostly in the temple area which is where mine is and in six weeks, if aspartame is the cause their will be a noticeable difference. But, their is a family history of thyroid issues. My moms is underactive and my grandfather on my dads side was overactive. So, maybe mine will balance out 🙂 However, my mother drinks her share of diet drinks also, so I encouraged her to quit and she did a couple of days after me because she has other symptoms.

    Thank you for your response and all the info!

    I never had problems with anxiety until I started drinking diet soda in 2001, it has only been 4 days off for me but so far I am feeling a lot less anxious and my blood pressure has come down. My appointment with my doctor two weeks ago my blood pressure was 134/84, today it was 117/74.

    I have been on a diet coke binge for years. Being type 2 diabetic was one reason to drink them. I have been drinking 2 – 2 liters a day for about 5 years. I admit I’ve been hooked. I have a horrible memory and deal with depression. A couple a days ago I made my mind up to quit. I started having flu like symptoms, headaches, and body aches. I knew then it was the aspartame. My mind has been foggy, cloudy. Yesterday I started to feel worse so my husband and I came across your article looking for answers. He finally went and got me a 2 liter and about and I glass later I began to feel better. I’m really trying to kick this horrible addiction! Advice? Should I just stop cold turkey or began to quit them slowly? I now know how a crack addict feels! It’s horrible! Please tell me how to get off these diet cokes! Sincerely, Val Virden

    Hi Val,
    I had the same symptoms about 3 months ago now. It took me 3 full weeks of flu like symptoms….might even say worse. They will subside. Find what tastes good and go with that. For me it was orange juice watered down a bit. I think it mimicked the acid of the carbonated soda. I don’t think there’s any way around it. Just go through it and it will be worth it in the end. The withdrawal was worse than any symptoms I ever had from drinking the soda. It can be done…you can do it. Patty

    Pure Stevia only is natural and perfectly healthy. The problem the big companies have is that they want to patent everything and so they combine it with other things that are not healthy to control the market under their brand name. Like the person above said Truvia is not Stevia. Just check the label and be sure of what you’re buying and you’ll be fine.

    Thanks for the post. I am working on an article on this subject. I hate to see people going from Aspartame Poison to Truvia Poison. The Omica Stevia on this page is the only way I would go. It is such a great product made by a great company. Trusting companies like Cargill and Coca-Cola (or PepsiCo for that matter) seems foolish given the research available.

    I have been an gum chewer for years, Trident bubble gum. Some days I would chew 3 value packs, and some days chew more. I knew it had aspartame in it, but did not realize until I checked it on the internet. I threw out all my gum, and this is the first day that I have not chewed gum in years. I do have a headache. Noticed not as hungry. I am hoping my body will recover from all of this poison I have been ingesting all these years. The FDA is not doing its job. You have to trust your own body, and do what is right.

    I am on my 14th day of no aspartame. I have so many of the same symptom’s of aches and pains. I noticed headaches and fatigue since stopping. Not only drinking diet soft drinks but the chewing gum I have bought for years also contains aspartame. I was shopping for a new gum yesterday and I could not find one that did not list aspartame as part of their ingredients. Has anyone found a gum that is safe to chew?
