|Regarding some questions
What is thought of as a common cold, is many times exposure to one of the glycol butyl ethers, and it can cause many autoimmune issues at once.
Abnormal blood sugar (high or low), abnormal body temp (high or low) abnormal blood pressure, too
The chemical I know best that would cause these and the symptoms you've listed in this thread is 2-butoxyethanol or ethylene glycol monobutyl ether
I suspect it causes CFIDS, CFS, FM ... and that the fatigue is Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia or IMHA ... however, so many things start going wrong at once that the fatigue is not easily found by doctors.
I suspect doctors would have to LOOK at the red blood cells and find out about kidneys / liver
The ringing in ears on a thread I looked at just now could also be something this chemical exposure would cause : an autoimmune issue that leads to deafness.
I think for many of the CFIDS type symptoms that start up after or around childbirth, can be something in the anesthesia that is given ... & then it is called HELLP syndrome
I write these web pages to express my thoughts, as someone in my family was harmed by this chemical when he worked on the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup. So were the herring nearby Decline of Herring?
An interesting thing I noticed (for very advanced fatigue that this butyl causes), is that an anemia sign is very high white blood cell counts and in an autoimmune system, these WBCs seem to attack the body more .... So, degenerative disc disease can be an autoimmune issue in this setting.
