Also, and this may surprise you, but do you drink a lot of diet drinks? I mean Diet Coke and such. Aspartame has a lot of side effects and it could be worth you researching.
Oh yeah I read about this one time--it was actually in an aikido dojo newsletter in LA! The claim of the article is that in some people aspartame is a terrible terrible toxin that leads to a (highly reversible upon stopping intake) syndrome that looks like multiple sclerosis. It was even supposedly misdiagnosed as MS in some people. Anyway this syndrome is supposedly very directly related to aspartame intake in some people but is not gaining official medical recognition yet. Maybe the soft drink companies are covering it up.

I hope you find a cure soon..
