Recently I've been experiencing some weird symptoms and I have no idea what ti could be. I went to the doctor, had blood tests done and everything came out normal. I told the doctor about it and she said that it could be just a pre-menstural thing. That really can't be because I feel like this all the time, not just during that time of the month.

Here's some of the stuff I've been feeling lately:
Under eye puffiness
Water retention
Abdominal distention
Abdominal pain
Feeling extremely tired and have an all over feeling of sickness.
Depressed and very anxious.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? :(

  • I went to my dr awhile back with some of the same symptoms minus the eye puffyness. I was tired all the time ( I have 4 kids) anixtey.. a tight feeling in my chest, dizziness, racing heart, stomach aches ect so he also did blood tests and everything was fine. He said that " to move ahead sometimes you have to experience a spirtiual death" so basiclly I was dismissed. I have learned to cope with these problems... I know this doesnt help but you arent alone.

  • A little worse than Period Odd... Eyes puffy, allergies? Lack of sleep? Water retention that could be related to hormones. Though there are other things that can cause it, likely period related.abdominal issues to me point to something unique. GERD? Ulcers? IBS? Heart, lung gallbladder? Really tough to narrow down. Exactly where is the pain? Is there burning, pain when you eat? You need to be far more specific. You need to sit down examine, write down the exact things. an Upper GI, is a X-Ray, pretty soft.. will rule out a lot of upper stomach problems including esphogus. Lower GI, intestines and IBS, probably worth while having an upper GI if paid for........if it seems cardiac, someone to listen to your heart, double check if you have asthma, all very very simple to get a foot in the door to rule out any possible stuff. Do not play Doctor but your Doctor may not be best for you. All over sick, tired, anxious depressed. It could cause all of the above. Rule out psychological stress first, before you waste your breath on medicine. Is there problems in your life? Can you fix them? Do you need help? If your life is pretty rosy then maybe some medical research would do, but depression an anxiety may not create conditions at first but after while they sure can...that or make pre-existing conditions worse! Whatever this is worth to you, I can relate..... in some ways.... good luck and write me, E-mail me whatever I'll try help if I canRecently I've been experiencing some weird symptoms and I have no idea what ti could be.
