Numbness and tingling in arms, chest pain. On candida diet. Why breathing issues?

I have been having breathing problems for a year now. I have seen an ENT, cardiologist , family doctor, allergy asthma doctor. I haven t had anything help or feel like I get any real answers. I need help in where to go now. I have a word document on my history of my treatments and feelings. No one seems to care. I truly feel that I don t have stress or anxiety. I have had these problems ever since I left South Korea for the military last year. This is my history: 1998 – Strep 2008 – Oral Thrush Treatment Aug. 2011 – Pneumonia Oct 2011 – March 2012 Fatigue that progressed to extreme fatigue. Which meant that I felt tired by mid-day which progressed to me being so tired by time I came home that I just needed to sleep. Irritable/Grouchy. Chest pressure, numbness and tingling in the hands, arms feel heavy and hard to lift above head, difficulty breathing, sinuses, eye pain, headaches, trouble concentrating/memory (fog), mucous, started to lose voice throughout the day. March 2012 – Treated for sinusitis . April – Diagnosed Asthma and given Advair 250 and Ventolin . Today I don’t feel like the Advair and Ventolin are doing much. Suggested to see a cardiologist. Negative results found. Cardiologist hinted at the fact it might be stress. June 2012 - Seen a holistic Dr and was told it could be from a stomach bacteria and treated me with oils a few times. Felt ok for a few days, but the symptoms returned. Eliminated dairy and it lessened the amount of mucous I had. Aug 2012 Started to see Dr. Fost who tested me for allergies and asthma. No allergic reactions . Were any of the tests for food allergies? Had a sinus CT scan. Went to see an ENT with the CT Scan and was told that there is nothing wrong with my sinuses except a little deviated septum and a little tightness in my right nostril. ENT suggested it might be anxiety. Chiropractor said that I’ve developed carpal tunnel in my hands/wrist (right wrist primarily). Sept 2012. Throughout months of my own research and trial and errors at home, I’ve found that my recent ability foul odors (without an odor being present) is due to a stomach bacteria. I went back to remembering that I had oral thrush that never fully went away. This was found to be candida. I spoke with a Blue Cross RN about candida who confirmed that it is a real thing and cause issues like mine. RN also asked about how it could be from GRD. For almost two weeks now I’ve been cleansing, using probiotics, and doing the candida diet. A lot of symptoms feel like they are going away. Sept 27 2012 - Feeling of a little fatigue returning and heavy shoulders. Sept 28 2012 – Visiting asthma and allergy specialist. Diagnosed with vocal dysfunction cord and not asthma. Taught breathing exercises and taken off the advair and ventolin. For two weeks feeling ok. Twice I was able to get myself to cough up phlegm at night when I has trouble breathing. Oct 8 2012 – Slipped on diet and had a regular burger and fries with no cheese. Within a few minutes after, I felt extremely tired and took a nap in the car. Don’t believe it’s vocal dysfunction cord. Oct 9/10 2012 - Numbness in tingling in right arm all night. A couple of times for a few minutes I felt it in my left arm. Chest pain in upper right area near arm pit. In the morning on the 10th the pain moved to the center of my chest. I make sure that don’t sleep on my side anymore to make sure that it is not from sleeping on my arms. Confirmed that it isn’t from sleeping on my side. Worried it’s a heart disease still or lung infection/bacteria. Currently, I get numbness and tingling in right arm. Chest pain that moves from upper right area to center of chest. A pain in chest when at work and think about doing a cell search (I’m a correctional officer). Shortness of breath and lightheaded after walking up and down stairs more than a few times. Still on candida diet afraid to eat anything else. I don’t feel like I worry or have stress. I have gotten rid of all possible stressors.
