Neuro symptoms?? Sjogrens?

I will try to keep this as short as possible. Back in March 2014 I woke up out of nowhere feeling so exhausted, headache, nausea, inappetence, diarrhea, lightheadedness, tinnitus, blurred vision, itchy burning eyes, sore throat, swollen parotid gland, have trouble focusing my eyes, stiff neck/neck pain, and a weird feeling of being in a daze, woozy-ish. I got everything under the sun checked, saw a neuro, allergist, ent, regular gp, ophthalmologist, etc. Got mri of brain and neck, ct scan of sinuses, infinite bloodwork, eeg, emg, and allergy tested. Nothing came back as anything significant except an FNA of my parotid gland came back as sialadenitis (sorry can't spell that well). The only thing that seemed to help was the Candida diet, which is no sugar, wheat, dairy basically after a few weeks I got better. Skip ahead to this year I woke up with the same exact symptoms!!! Horrible!! It's very debilitating. I'm thinking here I go again! No swollen parotid gland so far but the same as everything else! Does this sound like Sjogrens or something else? I am a 27 year old female. I'm about to go see a neuro again in a week. Thanks for reading.

I should say to that I also am hypothyroid, and have recently had problems with ovarian cysts even on birth control but don't know if that has anything to do with everything else. Thanks!

Hey pearlchains.
You may be suffering from Ovarian-Adrenal-Thyroid (OAT) Axis imbalance
and each component of the OAT is affecting the others.

Oops my battery is running critically low! I'll try to continue tomorrow sometime if I have a chance.

Hi,
How did your Neuro appointment go? Did you have a positive ANA blood test? I have Sjogrens with neuological symptoms and lesions on my brain. If you wanna talk, let me know.
Best wishes,
Dagun
