I just wanted to update that in the 8 intervening years since my original post I have had no relapse of symptoms. When I think about the time before recovery, it is like a bad dream. I feel like one of the luckiest people on the planet. To feel 'normal' is awesome and too often taken for granted. I hope that anyone with similar symptoms can be helped.
In the intervening years, I have run into 2 different people who had chronic pain/fatigue type issues that were not able to be diagnosed conventionally. They approached me and asked about my former illness. Both subsequently went to see a holistic dentist and had metal removed from their mouths. Both experienced an improvement in their health, energy levels, and quality of life. I do not think that either person had what I had exactly. Neither had a 100% removal of their symptoms. Both expressed to me that their life had improved quite a bit though.
Best regards, Best Wishes,
