Gut and auto immune. Too common to be a coincidence?

March 27, 2011 at 1:24 pm

I too am now starting to think more and more about these intestinal/gut issues. The specialist I saw says that she has seen a trend on stomach/gut viruses cohabitatting with auto immune disorders. She said if you have auto immune disorder, there is a 90% chance there is a gut virus hidden somewhere. The challenge is finding a doctor who doesn’t dismiss this as a coinsidence and really look at it as a causal virus. Could it be a root in the CIDP tree????
I am going to see her in 2 weeks and will talk to her about this in depth. I will also mention the sinus infection you and your son tested positive for along with the gut virus you also tested for. The one that starts with an H. I’m curious about that one and tired of this bloating. I also get the sweating and feverish feeling. Especially at night. From the stomach up, I am burning up and sweating, but my legs are cold????
I just want a good, comfortable nights sleep!!!! Will I ever have one of those again????
I will keep you all posted. Thanks for all the info!
