    Do you have ABPA?

    Help with Sinuses. Recommendations needed to break up sinus junk!

    Hi TheSaltyOne! I've had similar issues with my sinuses, even though they've never been so bad to have surgery (it's definitely out there as an option though). I recently went to see an ENT who specializes in patients with CF, and there are some new treatment options. Years ago, he told me first...

    The " cure " Selenium

    Your initial reaction of "this story is kind of nuts" is correct- it is nuts. In general, if someone with CF has a deficiency in selenium it would be due to malabsorption (and I doubt it would be the only thing you would be deficient in).

    As if CF wasn't enough

    Sorry I think I read your join date instead of the thread date. Unfortunately I cannot get an appt. with the neurologist (I'm going to UVA because Dr. Burns is there) until late October. So I've got a couple of months to think about it :) I think I will try to keep track of my symptoms though-...

    As if CF wasn't enough

    It's been quite a few years, are you still on the forum bamagirl? And if so, how is your treatment going? I was just diagnosed as having MG myself (same symptoms as you, including fatigue from chewing and general overall). I still need to see a neurologist (very soon I hope) so that we can...
