Hi All! I'm trying to figure out what is causing my symptoms and weird medical issues. I spend a lot of time searching online and have some ideas, but want to hear what others have to say. So far, many doctors have not been able to find out what the cause is.
Physical findings: -serum co2 just below normal -serum globulin just below normal and A/G ratio elevated -5-HIAA slightly elevated -plasma histamine high, but 24 hour histamine urine normal and plasma histamine normal when retested -moderate tricuspid valve regurgitation (never had a murmur before this) -sinus inflammation -mild chiari malformation -alcalculous gallbladder disease (had it removed) pathology report sounded normal except for "reactive lymph node" -various small skin nodules removed and tested as scar tissue and hormone allergy reaction -asthma
Symptoms: (all symptoms are intermittant but occur most days in some form) -cognitive problems -headache -intermittant diarrhea and constipation -fatigue -excersize intolerance -hair shedding -patches of goose bumps that just appear (on leg) -muscle twitches (leg) -low blood pressure -high heart rate -chest pressure -rapid breathing -episodic rushes with shakiness, dreamy state, upward pressure in stomach and throat, continuous swallowing and racing heart -spots on skin (sun spots and red dots) -urinating at night -frequent nausea -slow wound healing -a lot of noise makes me agitated
Any ideas? Thanks so much.
*forgot info* just wanted to add that I am 35 years old, female, have been healthy until this started 7 years ago and physical findings are all new things that I never had before. Thanks.

  • This probably isn't your problem, but the spleen is a possibility. I say this because of your "reactive lymph node", and the upward pressure in your stomach and throat. An enlarged spleen can cause these. The spleen is also 9/10 times responsible for lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes.Your cognitive problems might be caused by some form of malnutrition or vitamin deficiency, which would lead to the headaches, fatigue, and hair shedding.Whatever the problem is, I do hope you get better soon.
