Thank you ahead of time for reading this.

10 months ago at work, I felt dehydrated and lightheaded like I was going to pass out. My blood pressure was very high, my vision was blurry and I got fatigued easily. The symptoms continued on for a couple of weeks and then I got better.

In November the symptoms came back and have not let up since. The continuing symptoms are fatigue in the legs, tingling in the arms (not like they're falling asleep but more like an aching at a certain point in my forearms), lightheaded, and the most noticeable is a heart that beats very hard and / or fast. I've seen 4 doctors and nobody is helping figure out what is wrong.

I've been on beta blockers, calcium beta blockers (im off all bp meds for a few months now and my bp is 105 / 70), Adavan (which doesn't really help), and Celexa (one doctor thought I had a mild case of anxiety but the pills made me all weird, tired, and my teeth wouldn't stop chattering).

I've had a chest X-ray, an ultrasound, and a ton of blood work. Thyroid problems run on my mom's side of the family but everything is checking out "normal."

Only thing on the labs that look odd are high fasting insulin (but no sign of diabetes, hgba1c is at 5%) high cortisol and a vitamin d deficiency (which I started suplementing for a few weeks ago.)

If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it
