Hello there!

I am writing again to see if there is anyone else who has/had symptoms as i do. I already wrote on this forum but i think i misplaced my thread. I am 31 years old and i started having problems with my joints, first elbows than knees and now hips and lower back. I am also diagnosed with possible prediabetes, i have constant ringing in my right ear or both maybe i can't really tell. I also have muscle aches (mild) and joint pain seems to be migrating. Periods of constipation and diarrhea are coming and going in turns. There is also something present that i could describe as vertigo or nausea but i don't vomit or anything it just don't feel right in my head mostly in mu right part (near right ear). Its kind of wierd feeling i didnt have before i cant describe it well. Its been going on for almost a year. My palms are dry especially after washing my hands and my fingertips are almost always wrinkled like when you get out of the bathtub, and i also have strange sensation of discomfort in my stomach. I would really appreciate if someone could counsil me who had similar syndroms or knows if they are connected since it all started a year ago, gradually. Can it be connected to diabetes? One person on this forum told me that he/she had similar symptoms but was not sure if it was diabetes or hypothyroidism. I didn't check my thyroid yet. Can this all be stress related and that the problem is in my head acctualy not in my body?

Thank you in advance!

  • I am prediabetic, and I have hypothyroidism. I had all your symptoms (except for the dizzyness and earringing) and mine were all do hypothyroidism. My tests all came back normal tho and it took almost 9 months before I was diagnosed. My fingertips were wrinkled too. I remember trying to find someone else with that symptoms since I found it so wierd. Anyhow it disappeared after I was put on levaxin. Kiera
