Hello and thanks for having a look at me “story.” Be forewarned, this is going to be a long post.

Some Background: About 9 years ago I started consuming large quantities of caffeine in the form of Vivarin, Excederin, and energy drinks. The lasted about 8 1/2 years. There was also a period of time where I consumed large quantities of tylenol. Additionally, I am very overweight and have high blood pressure (controlled with medication).

About 7 months ago, I woke up one morning feeling very foggy. Like I had chugged down a bunch of cold medicine. I did my best to ignore it. I hoped it would fade on its own. The next morning I woke up and the feeling was still there. I got to work and took my standard 2 Excederin and washed it down with a red bull. At this point, the foggy feeling got worse. I figured that it was somehow attributed to to my caffeine use. I immediately decided I would cut it cold turkey.

That evening, I was sitting at home watching TV and having dinner with my wife when the room started spinning, my heart started racing and skipping beats. I had the strong urge to to use the restroom. I couldn't sit. I had to stand and pace around. I thought I was having a heart attack. I didn't have insurance, so I decided to tough it out. However, it lasted all night.

The next day I went to the doctor and had an EKG. They said it was a panic attack and gave me some Xanaex. I took the Xanex and slept off the caffeine withdrawals. I felt better 2 days later. Then I woke up on day three feeling lightheaded. I went back to the doctor and they said it was because of the Xanex. I stopped taking it. The lightheaded feeling continued 24/7. Additionally, I felt nervous all the time. Like I had a major interview to go to. The lightheaded was almost like I was looking through a fish bowl. I also felt faint at times. For the next 3 weeks these feeling remained. The doctors kept saying it was anxiety. I didn't understand this because I never in my 32 years had any signs of anxiety.

Ok, this is becoming a ramble. Let me try to highlight the rest.

Symptoms I have been experiencing since this all began:

Lightheaded/dizzy: 24/7. Gets worse with laughing, exercise, any exertion.
Anxious feeling, especially when I focus on dizziness.
High blood pressure.
Tired and fatigued not matter how much sleep I get.
Foamy urine.
Neck soreness and constant need to crack neck to relieve pain.
Headaches every morning.
Occasional cold chills even when hot.
Flushed face periodically.
Crave sweets.
Pressure in chest.
Depressed feelings, like what’s the point of all this.
My foot hurts so bad that i cant put weight on it (comes out of nowhere and lasts like 4 days and then goes away) - This has happened 3 times in the past 2 years.
Periods of time where I get up multiple times at night to urinate.
Cant lose weight no matter how hard I try.
Intense pressure in my eyes.
Swollen ankles in the evenings when I get home from work (at least that is when I notice it.
I will wake up on occasion with my hand asleep. It will remain numb for hours. Like it only wakes up partially.
Concentration and memory problems. I will be talking to someone and completely forget what we were talking about. Overall trouble thinking.
Occasional vision problems. Every now and then my vision becomes foggy, like I have Vaseline in it.
Fatigue.
Irritable and short tempered.
Very painful to take deep breaths in the morning before I rise. Pain is on both sides of lower back and radiates in. Goes away after getting out of bed.
Occasional unexplained fever with achy bones.
Constant need to “sigh.”I have also developed a new type of dizziness. Last month I started having issues with motion. When I stop at a stoplight, it feels like I am still moving. When I ride an elevator, me knees buckle when I move.

The dizziness sensation is intensified if I turn sideways to talk to the person sitting next to me. Walking in to large stores like Walmart also intensifies the dizziness. Working on the computer at work under the florescent lights also makes things worse.

Many of these things come and go. My main concern is the constant dizziness, foamy urine, neck pain and headaches. These are the symptoms that are persistent.

The foamy urine freaked me out the first time I saw it. It is almost like I am peeing soap. The doctors response was “hmmm, interesting.” It made me wonder if my kidneys were somehow messed up from the long term Excederin and tylenol use.

I have had blood work for a physical and was told all was fine. I saw a cardiologist who did chest x-ray, stress test, and echo. Was told all was ok, except the heart was slightly enlarged.

I had a CT scan and was told it was normal. I had an ultrasound of kidneys, and again, was told all looked fine.

I had an eye exam and all was normal.

I have tried acupuncture and no results.

I was referred to a psychiatrist and psychologist. Both agreed there was anxiety, but both said something else must be going on. They gave me all kinds of meds and nothing changed anything.

I went back to the doctor and they said there is nothing more they can do for me?!?!?! I do have an appointment with an ENT this week, but after that, I do not know what to do.

I know this is a big mess and may not all fit together, but can anyone provide any guidance?

Thank you in advance.

  • Some of your symptoms scream "migraine!" to me, specifically these:# Lightheaded/dizzy: 24/7.

Obviously, it doesn't explain all of your symptoms, but dizziness/headache that gets worse from exercise/fluorescent lights, frequent headaches, eye pain... It's all there (and I have them myself).It took me a long time to accept that what I have is migraine related. I'm not saying yours *is*, but it sounds like it. However, please don't dismiss it as quickly as I did, I suffered for quite a while for no good because I ruled it out because "well, I don't have migraine. *next*".

  • were you screened for diabetes??? You have symptoms. I think you have several isssues going on. Please find a new doctor who will work with you. Your high blood pressure could cause arteosclerosis, among many other things--leg pain. Your urine is not normal. This needs to be addressed. These are real and not psychiatric issues...you didn't say if you are still taking all your otc meds...way bad for you...check your diet; go macrobiotic...study nutrition..a slightly enlarged heart ??? i would need to know why is it enlarged (self medication) and what to do about it....what did they recommend???

  • When I stop at a stoplight, it feels like I am still moving. I often find myself suddenly trying to slam the break down harder due to that one, as i suddenly think im going to roll into the car in front :eek:. I have a condition which can cause that same symptom. It's obvious that either you have all different separate issues going or everything may be linked to the one illness. One illness which can cause all the issues you have is CFS, chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as CFIDS..chronic fatigue immunity dysfunction syndrome or ME). With CFS.. dizziness is often a large part of it. It isnt just about fatigue as one gets many different problems with the illness. With some the dizziness can be more incapitating than even the fatigue symptom (this is often so in my own case, I collapse in dizziness.. or sometimes in weakness) Lightheaded/dizzy: 24/7. Gets worse with laughing, exercise, any exertion. Tired and fatigued not matter how much sleep I get. Symptoms caused by CFS often do get worst from any emotional extremes (laughing can cause them to get worst too).. exercise and and exertion (including mental exertion) can set the symptoms off worst too. unexplained fevers, achy bones and concentration issues, need to urinate more, chest pressure etc .. are all normal in CFS. Unexplained body pains and the brain being affected in some way eg with the concentration/memory issues, headaches are a large part of CFS and those symptoms are used to help diagnose the illness. Im thinking that it is more likely that you have got an illness which causes multiple issues such as CFS, rather than just suddenly developed multiple health issues, in such a short space of time. For a very good CFIDS symptom list and the percentage of CFSers with those symptoms.. check out http://wwcoco.com/cfids/bernesx.html

  • Tired and fatigued not matter how much sleep I get. With the above symptom.. a sleep study should be done to rule out sleep apnea which could cause that symptom ..thou that wouldnt cause all the symptoms like CFS does. If you do have CFS, there is a subgroup of CFSers who do have high blood pressure. They also often have high cholestrol as well (like syndrome X going on.. syndrome x can lead to diabetes). So i suggest that if it ends up it's suspected that you have CFS.. also make sure your doctor tests your cholestrol levels.

  • They have probably checked for these, but with the overweight issues, please make sure that you are not diabetic or have sleep apnea. Both could contribute to your feeling bad all the time.Another thing you may want to get ruled out is an autoimmune thyroiditis. They likely have already checked your TSH and other hormone levels, but I have learned from my own experience that sometimes that is not good enough and they need to look at your thyroid antibodies as well (thyroglobulin and thyroperoxidase).The issues with weight may be contributing to the high blood pressure. Extra weight can lead to all kinds of poor outcomes, including type 2 diabetes (which can lead to kidney disease and failure, nerve damage, poor wound healing, increased infections, and eye damage). It can also lead to elevated blood pressure, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, depression, and increased chance of gallbladder disease.An underlying thyroid condition may make it difficult to lose weight. Also, when you feel so tired, it is hard to exercise, turning into a vicious cycle.There are lilely a large number of things that could be causing your symptoms as well. It does sound a lot like CFS, too- a chronic, disabling condition.We hope you get answers soon and can regain your health back.

  • I've had a few of these symtoms happen to me last year, ie. felt fluish, the foamy urine, swollen ankles and feet, near constant dizziness, chest pains, fatigue, yellowish skin etc. to name just a few. I am not at all overweight though. It disappeared when I finally regained and kept a normal heart rhythm (had to cut out caffeine, not on beta blockers or anything as they still havent caught the rhythm anomaly on an EKG...frustrating) so I assume the weird symptoms were from poor cardiac performance. I've since felt better than I have in nearly 20 years.

  • Thank you for your different ideas. I am in the process of looking in to them. However, I think I will require a new doctor before bringing up anything else to them. My current doctor told me there is nothing left they can do for me.To answer a few of the questions . . . I was checked twice for diabetes. They said I was fine - whatever that means. I do remember to number 80 being tossed around. Does that mean anything? Additionally, my cholesterol is within the normal ranges. As for the cell phone tower, I have no idea. With reference to the enlarged heart. I was told it was the result of having to pump more due to my weight. I have tried all types of diet plans with no success. I've tried starch based vegetarian, high protein, low calorie, liquid, and a few others. No matter what I do I cant lose weight. I assume alot has to due with my inability to exercise regularly.:confused: Question: What are the chances of kidney problems? Due to my long term use of Excedrin and Tylenol, I was fearful of damage.Anyway, going to look in to your suggestions. I appreciate all of your assistance.

  • Hi Really sorry you are having so many problems. Just to let you know you are not alone, I have being experiencing many of these symptoms for nearly a year and do not have a diagnosis yet. I know it's hard, but you have to try and stay positive. Whatever you do, keep on at the doctors and do not let them fob you off or say you have "anxiety" or "depression" problems! Good Luck :-)

  • I think you are having multiple problems also. Look up BPV (Benign positional vertigo). Do the positions. It can't hurt. Have the sleep study. Invest in a really good mattress such as a Tempur-pedic. There are some look-a-likes on the internet for half the price. Or at least a 4 " topper of foam. That will help with your flank pain and arm "dead-ness" . Go to the pound and rescue a dog and start walking around the block and increasing to a mile a day. Have you tried Adkin's or Weight Watchers? Blaine's Low Carb Kitchen is on Fit TV...or the comaraderie of WW might do the trick. Re foamy urine. Have you had a 24-hour urine test for proteinuria? One of the causes is dehydration. Caffeine will dehydrate you. Are you getting enough water?

  • Have you checked your Adrenal Function (in particular your Corisol levels). It's a simple blood test. Do some GOOGLE searches on "Cortisol" and "Adrenal Fatigue". All the best.

  • I know i might be several years late but when i read your symptoms i thought u must be talking about me.As a kid i would eat candy n junk all day everyday,thus ruining my teeth but i always had fatigue and sudden fevers, hot n cold chills, weird sleep habits, yellow skin, foamy urine.. And my mother must of taken me to doctors for years intil one doc decided to do a kidney biopsy on me when i was 10yrs old. I was diagnosed with proteinuria and see my doc twice a yr for the rest of my life. No meds required but im asked to minimize use of asprin and caffine n alcohol. I still hav fatigue and sudden fevers and headaches but i manage, lay down when i feel bad and other times a piece of sugar like gym makes it better n i stay as hydrated as possible.Another thing i was diagnosed with is anxiety which feels like someone holding your head down under water and your fighting to gasp air.these are totally unrelated, i take meds for the anxiety and try to inform myself as much as i can about anxiety, society makes us feel anxiety means ur weak or crazy or its a bubblegum theory. It is very real and everyone eventually finds their own way to cope.I am very thin and actually hav trouble gaining weight, ur weight prob should be checked over, sounds like a thyroid prob, hope you find answers : )

In particular look at this site and search for posts by Fredd on "foamy urine", which he attributes to methylfolate deficiency, methylfolate being a nutrient required with methylcobalamin (active form of B12) to make SAMe:http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=298155&highlight=foamy+urine#post298155 Fredd has many detailed historic postings at that site you would do well to read. He is also at a website called www.phoenixrising.me

  • You may not believe me here, but trust me on this one. I've suffered health problems my whole life and have studied for the past 5 years intensely on why the body does what it does. Here is what I've found:Your symptoms are due to diet. And a lot of people think, "Well I can't lose weight! I've tried Atkins, I've tried South Beach diet, I've tried all sorts of things." Those are awful diets. You want to change your lifestyle, not just lose weight.Go out and get yourself two books: "Healthy at 100" and "Intuitive Eating"Then never have a drop of soda or caffeine again.Drink more water than you can imagine. I weigh 125 pounds, and drink 70 oz of water. It will make you pee even more at night for awhile, but will be worth it. Drink to your body weight.Stop eating sugar.Never eat fast food.Slow down on meat consumption until you eventually can drop it all together.Slow down on dairy consumption until you can eventually drop it all together.Look into an allergy to gluten.Slow down on your breads and carbs.Eat MOSTLY GREEN. Vegetables all day long. Find ways for them to taste good. Look up recipes. Get into beans, whole grains like brown rice and quinoa...and so forth.Eat fresh fruits to take away sugar cravings.Don't drink fruit juices.Be active at least once a day.With all of this, you will feel a sense of DETOX at first... and feel achy and tired and sick.... but let it pass. Keep going, and you will feel better than you ever have. Good luck!
