Is systemic bacterial overgrowth a thing?

In the past I was diagnosed with bacterial overgrowth of the gut and was treated with pretty intense antibiotics, but the symptoms came back. I was subsequently diagnosed with IBS. I've also suffered from recurrent yeast infections. I ALSO suffer from chronic joint pain (with arthritis in my hands, feet, and ankles) and fatigue. I've started taking a low dose of immunosuppresants (on top of plaquenil), but I'm worried that if I do have bacterial overgrowth, my immune system may be less able to defend against it because my gut symptoms have gotten worse. Ah! [more inside]

I've forgotten how to work.

I'm a dissertating graduate student who, due to a whole host of factors over the course of a few years, has basically forgotten how to work. I spend days upon days at home, sometimes doing things and sometimes just hanging out, but the things I do are rarely dissertation-related (or they could be broadly work related, but aren't note-taking or actually writing the thing). As a result I have no dissertation progress to speak of, very limited levels of committee support remaining, and a bleak outlook. I used to be a real go-getter. Please help me get my head and ass wired together. [more inside]

Bunch of symptoms, maybe hypothyroid, what do I do next?

Bunch of symptoms, maybe hypothyroid, what do I do next? For the past several years, I’ve had a bunch of nagging symptoms that together have been very frustrating, and at times debilitating. The onset of the symptoms was about 7 years ago. My GP initially thought hypothyroidism, but the tests came back normal. As the years have gone on, the symptoms have waxed and waned but never gone away, and I keep getting retested for hypothyroidism at my doctors suggestion, but the tests always come back normal. After looking at the actual values from the lab, and a bit of research, I’m wondering if it isn’t in fact hypothyroidism, and what to do next. [more inside]

"Mr Burns, you have every disease there is!" "So I can't get worse, I'm invincible!"

Can you help narrow down what sort(s) of doctor(s) to see and what to investigate, given these symptoms? All symptoms have cropped up within the last two years. Before that, I felt healthy most of the time. Primary care doc has been little help, and most of the specialists seem to focus only on the symptoms within their own areas of expertise. [more inside]
