I am a 53 year old male,I am type 2 diabetic "7 years" oral med,high blood pessure"25+ years,various meds"GURD,Minears "20 + years"retired last year after 34 years working,never missing 1 day,I would work around my physical problems,so I could do my job.3 years ago my pulse rate started to speedup for no apparent reason,it went from 80 to 110 PBM,It all started last Oct,2006.I was sitting in the car wife was driving and I had what felt to me like a heart attack followed by very bad vertigo spell.It was far different than other Minears attacks I have had over the years.Well I ended up having 2 more bad attacks in Nov-Dec.2006,and had my left ear killed in early Jan.07 with a series of 3 gent. shots.No more Vertigo,but after last shot was in bed for 6 weeks trying to get better,eyesight has been hosed up ever since.Trouble focusing,boucing vision,changing eyeglass presc. weekly.When I 1st getup in mouring I feel a little better,as I getup and move around I feel like I have a 6 pack of beer in me after being vertical awhile.Any work makes me feel drunker.Lately I have trouble sweating,feel numbness in legs,arms and head.BS have been fine,BP good had every test known,8 docs no answers,I am getting worse as time goes on.I am supposed to have a tilt table test Thursday for C.A.N..Maybe I'll get an answer yet?Any ideas??

  • As a followup,I am 265 pounds,6 ft.5",don't exerise"just everyday walking around"My PB meds have been changed 5 times in the last year"large fluctions,but never higher than 165/95 "My fasting blood sugars have been good"my last were 6.8 which doc told me were OK"I have had the following test last 8 months,head and neck MRI,MRA,12 leed EKG,thread/rest mill Nuke heart scan,multiple blood test.But I still no answers.I am going to a shrink"if its mental"his solution was to put me on more meds!I feel as a working person with over 34 years no major complaints or missing work,a veteran, I would be taken more seriuosly by the Docs.I have come to the conclusion that there are no hypocondriacs,but Doctors that can find what wrong yet.Also I would watch what ypu say on any web forms about health problems,it might come back to bite you in the butt,if you ever descide to see a lawyer about your health problems.As always please forgive my bad spelling!
