Years I had been an exercise teacher and mover and shaker.

Customer Question

For 25 years I had been an exercise teacher and mover and shaker. After a visit to Cambodia 4 years ago I no longer can move let alone teach. I sleep almost 16 hours a day. After speaking to infectious disease the only answer was inconclusive. Where do I go next? Is there something I'm missing

I've had all of the above done. I have been very disgustingly healthy, thought a kick box class, went to Cambodia 2 days later and have never been the same. And yes I had all appropriate shots. I miss my work. In 21 days I went from 10-0 Just thought someone may have a fresh idea

At one point I had very strange "fibers" looked like baby hair coming from my mouth. I actually saved them and took them to 3 diff emergency rooms. They were fascinated but had no clue. One dr informed me that these things could not have come from anyone. I'm at loss. I ask everyone I can to document this problem.

No, all my levels r fine. I just feel like crap. For me not to have energy is very odd. I know u r doing the age thing. But i have a degree in exercise science. I know something went very wrong, I know my body. Anyway thanks for your time. I had to borrow the $ for this because I can't work for any length of time.

If I could I would walk there. But I would have to find a ride. Actually another dr. (A psychiatrist ) I thought maybe I was nuts!! Has a friend at Johns Hopkins. She wanted me to come there but I can't get there either
