I am writing in regard to a recent symptom, but I feel that I am almost always sick.
Before I detail, I confess I do have panic disorder, and so I often get bizarre symptoms associated with this. However, every few weeks I get ill in some way or another, even when I am completely happy and free of panic. Doctors have said it's just anxiety, but I am really fed up because no matter what I do i seem to get sick and have to leave work too often. I have had every test imaginable, all clear. I do have endometriosis however, that is reoccurring.
On friday I felt very nauseous, then tired over the weekend and then on Monday i just felt "ill". It's hard to describe but it is like my forehead is cold, like there is a draft or wind blowing on it, but I am actually quite hot. i spent all of today in bed, and taken paracetomol but It just won't go away.
Other symptoms I often experience include intense lethargy, nausea, dizziness, heavy arms, sinus, choking feeling and difficulty breathing.

I not particularly healthy in my lifestlye (like to go out drinking/dancing/smoking) but I am only 24 (female) with a pretty good life. I am becoming known as the girl who is always sick and I feel pathetic. please help??

  • So sorry you're not feeling well--it can make life tough. I have some of the same symptoms you do, though not all. After many tests the neur. thinks I may have always had CP. When I feel "off" I too get a cold feeling, though no fever. A sinus or migraine headache always causes me to feel ice cold. Have you had your hormone levels tested? Do you take any meds? (including the 'Pill' etc.) Everything seems to have side effects--even over-the-counter meds. Have you been tested for allergies, including chemical sensitivity? I try to stay off ANY meds since I think they affect our bodies more adversely than we think. Just thought I'd throw out these ideas. Good luck and God bless. Be praying for ya!

  • Hello,Do you have any mold in your house? Some of your symptoms sound like sick building syndrome. Perhaps a chemical has been sprayed?
