I'm 28 and my medical file looks like an 80 year old. I'm hoping that someone will read this post and be able to help me go in the right direction. My new gp is already giving up on finding out what is wrong with me. Over time like a snowball rolling down hill my symptom list has kept growing. I am a crafter and make jewelry and my latest symptoms have altered that joy from me. I'm constantly dropping things, or simply too tired to do what I love.
Extreme daytime drowsiness
Undiagnosed ear pain one ear
Urinating blood clots
Migraines averaging 4 times a week
Extreme bone pain in legs
Moderate bone pain in forearms
Change in balance and hand/eye coordination
Change in speech patterns, memory, concentration
Loss of bladder control
Blurred vision comes and goes in one eye
Dip in lower back pronounced
Pins and needles in arms/legs
Extremities feeling cold
Dizziness w/ nausea like motion sickness
various pcos symptoms that I would rather not mention..
My past medical history includes:
Surgery: Subtotal Colectomy (colon removal) for Toxic prolapsing megacolon age 20, Appendix removal age 20, Gallbladder removal age 26, 2 knee surgeries age 18
Major illnesses/diagnosis: Lymes Disease (age 6), Insulin-resistant PCOS age 25
My bloodwork comes back within normal range, no infection, sinus xrays clean, chest xrays clean, abdominal ct okay. My new gp has referred me to ob/gyn, urologist, neurologist, balance institute, etc. It is getting ridiculous. I have urologist and neurologist next week. Ob/gyn things checked out okay.
I also have to state that due to the pcos I can gain or lose 20 to 40 lbs in a single month. I never change my diet. I'm always health/weight conscious but doesnt help. I stick to a good carb vs bad carb plan, drink approx 8 bottles of water a day and 1 glass of soy milk, take daily vitamins plus iron, magnesium, potassium, and herbal teas to help soothe nausea.
