My partner has had ME 4.5 years, beginning with shingles. It's always been mild, she gave up work but managed a restricted life. She's never had any indication of gut issues (all test results indicated very good gut function) but she lost a lot of weight in a slow slide over about 18 months to 7st 7lbs (105lbs - BMI 16.4). She turned it round by eating ave 2,200 calories a day and put back about 1/2 stone (7lbs) to reach BMI 17.5. In mid-July she had a virus (we think), with fever, sickness and diarrhoea. The diarrhoea has continued ever since, the last few days she can keep nothing down. She's lost 4 lbs in the last 8 days and her weight yesterday was 7st 3lbs (101lbs - BMI 15.8). She saw a doctor in mid-August, who tested for e-coli & various other things & told her there was nothing wrong with her. She saw a nutrition specialist last week, who recommended a day of bone-broth fast followed by introducing egg yolks and then other foods - the egg yolks coincided with the worst stomach reactions yet. She saw her Perrin osteopath on Friday, who was sufficiently shocked that she wrote a letter to our GP recommending various tests. In the meantime, she hasn't got up today, feeling lightheaded and heart rate very high when she stood up. She's drinking ginger-infused boiled water. It's 3 days since she kept anything at all in long enough for any digestion to have taken place. I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions gratefully received.
