Long term MRSA

Hi all, very glad I found this website.

I'm going to get straight to the point. I have had ongoing MRSA
infections for the past 8 years, it started off at eczema which
escelated to staph infections (in my infant years) which became a
very stubborn and aggressive MRSA infections for the remainder and
possibly future of my life.

Previous infection sites include :
Feet, hands, neck, nostrils, pilonidal sinus, throat

Current infection sites include :
Feet, nostrils&sinus, heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder and another
pilonidal sinus

I have been battling for a very long time with IV antibiotics and
antibiotics which have been an absolute onslaught for my body and I
just cannot cope with taking medications anymore, they leave me
feeling like total ****.

My severe MRSA infection of the throat was 3 years ago, my throat
swelled up to almost 3x it's size, I was in a heavily altered state,
lost 35kg over 2 weeks mainly due to lack of eating and drinking,
fatigued to the point I would actually sleep roughly 16 hours, I was
forced to quit my job.

My lasting effects have been extreme fatigue, extreme sharp
headaches, extremely poor and blurry eyesight, memory malfunctions,
extremely low stamina, very poor breathing sometimes waking up in
heavy gasps through out the night, extreme thirst (sometimes
drinking atleast 6 glasses of water in a row), reccurent skin
infections which are always quite severe.

I think I've ranted on long enough, but I am at my wits end, I can't
cope anymore.

I also have been put on a 6 month course of 200mg Doxycyline taking
4 tablets a day which completely knock me out, not sure why.

I've come to terms with the fact I will more than likely not get
over the infection and it will be with me for the remainder of my
life.

Has anyone had any luck with eliminating these symptomps of extreme
headaches, fatigue, nausea etc.. I haven't been to work for 3 years
and when I tried to go back the first day was in the middle of an
Australian summer where it neared 50 degrees celcius in the
warehouse, infection quickly set in as my work boots became sweaty
and the skin broke leaving my feet with large amounts of open skin
with exposed muscle and flesh as the skin quickly turned black and
began to die, a moderate recovery was made.

I also has possible joint and muscle affliction due to MRSA.

Any help to combat such symptoms would be much appreciated.
