I am new here as of today. Does somebody recognize my symptoms, it feels like my days are on a count down. If somebody recognizes my extensive list, please let me know. I have been to 8 Dr's and they are clueless. These are my symptoms, some are worse, and some are just observations;
Father and mother smokers
Grew up with asthma
Got vitilago at age 32
Main problem: imbalance, surreal feeling, extreme exhaustion, fatigue
Started summer 2006 when I took Claritin; I had small dizzy spells for a day or two with months between.
After a turkey dinner that fall, I got very dizzy and threw up.
We thought it was from mold in washer and got rid of it
Then we thought it was carbon monoxide poisoning from our vent free fire place, and got rid of it.
I notice a swooshing in my head with my heart beat same as when I did extremely strenuous cardiovascular exercise.
I got glasses, and they made my vision worse.
My testosterone is lower according to blood work.
I am depressed at this time, and I think it is due to my situation verses the other way.
I get drunk from one or two beers.
I feel better in the morning, and I haft to nap mid day.
I took large amounts of ephedrine in my 20s, and 30s, thinking of scar tissues on my vascular system, catching and building plaque.
I sometimes feel better suddenly, like a "click," then later back to discomfort again; this also happens before I get sick.
Sometimes lately I feel very shaky, like I am full of caffeine, & the morning after I have 3 beers I can barely grab the TV remote (this began to worsen about 2 weeks ago when I also started iron supplements).
Below are more issues that I have noticed for 3 yrs. The notes are scrambled, some are repeats, but please read, and hopefully we can figure something out. The highlighted notes are the issues that are stronger, and bothering to me.
Small trembling all the time
my eyes feel uncomfortable when I look up in the corner
In 2006 I felt weird at dusk, and still do
*I now get drunk on two or three beers
My heart beats hard
*I have lost a lot of muscle tone
*Resting heart rate at 80-90 bpm, maxing out at about 140
I can run but if I strain hard i.e. when I pushed my neighbors car I get extremely exhausted.
*I shake, mainly in the mornings
*My vision is disappearing or blurring, and I got glasses, but they made it worse
*Have to hold on to things while working
*I take side steps often
Vision better if I tilt my head back slightly
*I am dizzy all the time now
Feel decent while driving my car or motorcycle
*Have to nap at break time or I crash
Seem to stutter more
*Can NOT keep muscle mass even though I work out 4x week
Gaining body fat all the time
*Almost always pain in my right abdomen, and it moves around. I have had that for 5-7 years on and off. Sometimes there are intense pains.
*Sometimes scratching my nose or face, it seems like I cannot “aim” correctly.
*My shaking is amplified after strenuous activity.
Heart races sometimes when standing up from seated position.
*It feels like “brain fog” and I feel like shaking my head to clear it.
I hear a swooshing in my neck or head with my heart beat
Sometimes I have a hard time following conversations.
**My neck is hurting on the sides.
I always hear a little noise in my head like TV static.
I am depressed, and I think it is due to this issue, but I could have been depressed before
Feeling very cold
Heart rate goes up when going up a flight of stairs
**70% weaker than I used to be.
I think I feel better just before I get sick i.e. a cold or virus.
My testosterone both regular & free is on the low end (& I feel it)
Frequent heart palpitations
Feel better in the morning after shaking is gone
I am very weak but yet not, meaning I can still push up 80 lbs dumbbell with one hand.
*I am swaying now noticeably.
I have extremely poor balance but again yet not; I can do an overhead press standing on a physio ball.
I don’t understand what I read as easily.
*Can this all be due to poor liver function (constant right side pain) so that I always have waste products circulating?
Took steroids ages 18-21
*Used to put sunscreen in my hair & eye lids for the last 8 years due to vitilago
*Constant head ache top right ( but had MRI checking MS 2 years ago and it was ok)
My D level was 2% of normal
My lithium was very low
*Vision is VERY blurry, close up and far away.
