I am 27 years old. I am a non-smoker and weight about 165lbs. I am in pretty okay shape except for the love handles. I have lived in the same place for over 5 years. I do not drink excessively. My symptom time line reads like this:
About 3 and a half years ago, I injured my left leg. Patellar tendonitis, they told me. Took anti-inflammatory meds and did physical therapy but it didn't help. I've done 3 other stints of PT since then and still experience that pain today.
2 years ago, I was having difficulty breathing. Sudden onset adult asthma, they said. I had asthma and allergies as a kid, but I had been asymptomatic for over 10 years. Not long after that, I started having a feeling that my heart was racing when I was just standing or sitting around doing nothing. EKG and holter showed that I had premature atrial contractions, but they were dismissed and I was told I was fine.
1 and a half years ago, I started having increased asthma symptoms and bad seasonal allergy symptoms. Running nose, bad headaches, trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing, sore throat, lump in my throat feeling, and an increase in my acid reflux problems. Zantac and zyrtec did nothing. Nothing that I was prescribed for medication helped the allergy problems and I could control my acid reflux with prilosec most of the time.
The worst of all this started about a year ago. I started feeling dizzy and it hasn't gone away. I've been constantly dizzy for an entire year. It is worst when I am sitting perfectly still. When I'm doing things, it isn't as bad. It comes with naseau, but never vomitting. Neurologist said MRI on head was clear except for fluid in my sinuses (which he said isn't the cause) and balance test and hearing test were normal.
The last 6 months, I've noticed that I have had a lot of memory problems and a slight temor in my hands. My vision is kind of blurry and I have to refocus it a lot. The headaches have gone to a numbness throughtout the top part of my head and my neck is really stiff. I'm not sure how long the vision and neck pain have been going on for. All blood work has been normal and except for the tempature taken at the doctor the last two visits (94 degrees both times), all blood pressure and other stuff has been normal. I could really use some help on this! First person to suggest anxiety loses...
I am on an allbuteral inhaler, prilosec, and singulair. That's it. Some of the timelines and grammar may not be perfect on this post because of the memory problems. I can't remember when some of these problems started and occassionally when talking or typing, I have been known to miss words that I thought I said or wrote. I really hope someone can help.
