That's a tough situation TommyIsland. I'm so sorry to hear things are so debilitating for you. It probably won't help your symptoms much, but sometimes it does help to know that most of us here know exactly what you are talking about and are having similar crippling problems.
I am not familiar with types of treatment other than medications and some natural amino acid treatments. If you would like some possible suggestions, please let us know. I kind of got the feeling from your post that you are trying to avoid them. Some of them could be predictably lousy for you, while others could be predictably more promising, but all come with side effects. There are a few amino acids and mineral supplements that could be good for you.
Taking a saliva test of cortisol and dhea, 4 times over a day, would be a good idea. The adrenal glands might be acting up causing weird behavioral and mood problems. Not very expensive and relatively easy to correct.
Wishing you a better day today!
