This is my first time posting so bear with me.
About 4 years ago the moment my beautiful daughter was born my problems started. First was the occular migraines that would come 5 times a week a coupl of times a day. Those stopped after 4 months. Then came the dizziness, fatigue, tingeling, numbness, heart palpitations, aching feet, pain in the legs and episodes of a cool flushing. At first the episodes only occured every now and then and as time went on they occured more frequently until it was a daily occurance. I went to my doctor who sent me to a neurologist who tested for epilepsy, ms all came out fine except for the couple of white spots on my brain that they call non-specific. The neurologist sent me to an otolarynologist who said I was fine except for my balance and a slight delay in my reaction time. Then I went to a naturopath, accupuncturist and chiropractor. There were brief moment of hope that we had figured it out but not. Then about a year and ahalf ago I got stung by a bee and went into anaphylaxic shock and almost died. It took me many months to recover and had numerous trips to the hospitals thinking I was having another anaphylaxic attck. The interesting thing was that my Cool flushing had turned into a hot flushing after the bee attack. Currently my doctor has no clue and my dermatologist is currently investigating carcinoid syndrome but the urine came back normal. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it.I fell like I've just been spinning my wheels for 4 years.
Thanks for listening

  • have you had basic blood labs done--thyroid panel, blood sugar testing. If you haven't already, start googling your symtoms and looking into diseases one by one and ruling them out. Those in question have your doctor test you for. After relying on drs. for years this is what I had to do and have gotten more solved with my son, and myself in the past few years then ever before!good luck.

  • you need a endocronologist! Check out cushings and acromegaly to see how many symtoms you have. Have your shoe and ring size gone up? If yest start with acromegaly
