As you may know, I've studied heavily on things that cause anxiety/depression and things that mimic them. As I read the above list, it paints a clear picture of something you may not have considered. Infection.

The one that really caught my attention like a sledge hammer was "feeling hungover without drinking alcohol". All the others tie into that one. Whether Candida, Lyme, other bacteria, protozoans, or worms, what they all do is excrete toxins and waste into your bloodstream that make you feel...hungover. Kind of like mildly poisoned. The toxins have affinity for the opioid receptors. Kind of like contaminated opioids. And they can contaminate serotonin and dopamine. Possibly explaining why you felt better when the meds that were keeping those levels high were removed.

Anxiety is also a top symptom. Really tired, foggy, hungover, just not with it, and yet at the same time there is unprovoked inner anxiousness.

It is no wonder you have these symptoms that fall into the category of "brain fog".

Then I wondered, ok, if it is an infection, what kind causes intense sugar cravings? The top contender there is Candida. It is a catch 22 that the things that are feeding the monsters the most are the ones you crave the most.

Most infectious tests are unreliable. Long detailed topic. Modern medicine is weak in that area. The fastest most accurate diagnostic tools are meds...antibiotic Tetracycline; antifungal Nystatin. If your symptoms get a lot worse shortly after starting one of those, it is diagnostic. You are killing a lot of something in that category.

Very long detailed subject. If you want to know more, let me know. I just wanted to say that while your symptoms may look bizarre and mysterious to many people including most doctors and probably all psychiatrists, they stood out plain as day to me.
