Hey guys, thanks for all the suggestions.
You need to be a bit careful about encouraging Taiwanese doctors throw technology at the problem. Sometimes, there's no substitute for listening and thinking for a couple of minutes. If you can find a doctor who knows how to do that, you'll probably get a result.
this has been my biggest problem. the docs touch me a bit, send me for a test of some kind (I have had weird objects put up every hole but my penis). they play on their computer etc, its really irritating actually. when I went to taipei i told him I need a doctor to really help, most send me for tests and im still sick. that day i felt like dying and fell over a few times in the hospital, so my voice was low, barely talking and he seemed to take it personal. im not going back tuesday.
my wife did find a GREAT doctor here in pingdong. they have ears and a heart, and I am feeling slightly better after a few days going to them. the problem, according to what they think is some kind of mucous problem in my stomach. an intenstinal something (I forgot the terms he used), a bacteria causing the sickness and sugar is all whacked (liek you all said). still not great, but getting better I hope. if anyone is in pingdong area and needs a general doctor, pm me fo raddress.
btw, have you considered taking a holiday somewhere more temperate? If you immediately feel better, you'll know it's just the heat.
my idea of a temperate holiday is Borneo in winter. i generally hate cold places because they have cold loving plants....I am a plant man and love tropical plants and thus thats where we end up. Im not going to disagree, its a bad idea. Generally on most of our trips I am very sick as well, but i push through it because there is too much to see and they have good medicine in many of the places i go which helps.
Rule out the common -diabetes seems more plausible, given the thirst and the dizziness, any numbing of the limbs?- or an undiagnosed heart condition -but the doctors would have seen that right? If you do not feel right, something is not right.
dizziness is getting better. numbness is still there. legs, forearms/hands and face. waiting on results for blood sugar etc. need them to tell us on the phone cause im not making another trip up to taipei again. if they wont, will go for new tests here.
as an FYI, i cant eat much. the massive amounts of fruit were eaten (aside from their good taste) because i could eat them without feeling sick. but hte new doc has got my diet all switched around. cooked veggies (specifically not raw foods because she said Taiwan has too much bacteria in the hot humid weather), rice and water. she actually said only drink water, nothing else. also dont eat out anymore (oil), which is what I always do cause we despise cooking.
lifestyle changes are happening finally i guess, hope it all pans out. FYI im only 26, male. I have also lost near 18kg since march due to this.
thanks again guys, appreciated.
