Hello. Thank you ahead of time for reading this...

10 months ago I was at work and felt very dehydrated and fatigued as if I was going to pass out. My vision was blurry, my heart was racing, and my blood pressure was through the roof. By the mid - end of September, all the symptoms had full cleared.

In November, the symptoms came back again and have continued since. I always have fatigue in my legs, my arms always have a...almost tingling sensation in them, my heart beat out of control, and I get light headed easily. However, now my blood pressure is perfect at about 105/70.

I've had blood work done 5 times, an ultrasound, a chest x ray, 4 doctors, 4 prescriptions and it goes on from there...

The prescriptions include - beta blockers, calcium beta blocker (I'm off all of them now and my BP is fine) adavan (which doesn't really help, it's just for when I'm feeling horrrible) Celexa (my doctor thought I might have mild anxiety but this medicine made me insane and my teeth were chattering all the time)

The only thing that looks suspicious in my bloodwork was a Vitamin D deficiency (Which im supplementing for now), high fasting insulin (but my HGBA1C is @ 5%...so it can't be diabetes) and high cortisol levels.

I've had my thyroid checked as well; TSH (which is bogus most of the time), T4, FT4, FT3....I'm not fully convinced on all of this.

I'm a vegetarian (5 years) I don't smoke or drink and I make sure I get enough protein everyday. My iron levels are perfect as well as my B12.

Can anyone help me shine some light on this?
