Hi. I'm trying to find out what's wrong with me. My problems started in Febuary when I was at an event that required me to walk for several hours, leasurely pace, stop&start. I had eaten Tex-Mex before the event, but about an hour later I started to feel loopy. I felt disconnected from my legs, like fuzzy headed. And when I walked by a sound system w/ heavy base I felt like I was going to pass out from the vibration I was getting in my chest & head. I even went into the restroom & ran cold water over my wrists. While there I looked in the mirror & noticed my eyes where bloodshot. I didn't tell the person I was with b/c I didn't want to make a scene or go to the hospital & a few minutes later I burped & passed gas, I felt like a new person. All of my symptoms disappeared and I continued on for several more hours.
Since then my symptoms have grown & are now an everyday occurance. I have tremors in my hands, an inner vibration in my entire body, lightheadedness & extreme body fatigue where it's hard to get out of the car or press the gas pedal. all this affects what i feel i can do in a day & my appetite. Several times including today, I get the feeling of getting ready to pass out, lightheadeness, disconnected from my body, shaky hands, flushed face. I run cold water over my wrists & sit down & it usually passes. When I told my dr about the 1st instance he said I have gerd & gave me samples of protonix, but b/c my employer doesn't offer insurance, I can't have any indepth testing done or a protonix prescription. I'm so tired of feeling the fatigue, fuzzy-headed, shaking hands & body tremors. It's a daily occurance now & I don't know what the cause is.
I described to my dr & one of the reasons he diagnosed GERD is b/c i get a heavy vibration in the center of my chest. It's like a cat purring. Even though I have noticed an increase in the amount & the deepness of my burping, I'm afraid there may be something wrong with my heart (he says no) and that is the reason for all the symptoms above minus the burping.
My dr did do blood work, but no urine about 2 months ago when i was last there & when i called for the results his nurse said it all came back clear. i was hoping what is wrong would show up in my bloodwork; ie diabeties, thyroid, hypo/hyper glycemic, etc., but nothing. I don't know where to go from here, but I feel like my body is trying to run down on me, and I'm only 28 w/ no real medical history. I would like to know if my GERD could be so severe or if I'm so sensitive to it, that the gerd could cause all other symptoms from above.
