I have pale skin, mostly noticable my hands...almost look grey, I get head pressure and very dizzy. My throat feels sore on the back right side. I have a pale tongue underneath and I just dont feel well. I feel tired and I feel depressed. I see black floaters. I am very forgetfull, and my stomach feels bloated. My blood pressure is always high. 144 - 149 over 90ish

I have had a CT Scan, blood work checked regularly for Iron, B12, cbc, liver, renal, Thyroid,and all the other stuff and all my blood work comes back good. Pap smears and pelvic exams come back good as well

I am 31 year old female with 2 little girls. I work full time and am very busy/active.

I am so scared because every time I go to the Doctor and get checked, they say everything is fine. What should I be looking for? If I had something would it show up on these exams? What exams should I be getting done next? Please help me as I am desperate!

  • Any suggestions at all please????Have they done a FULL chemscreen? Does the cbc include a peripheral smear? Has your blood glucose been checked? Has your bp been monitored besides the standard reading in the office? How are your vitamin D levels? The only other thing I can think of is maybe an ELISA test for food allergies. My thoughts are this: If they did some specific blood panels but not a full chem screen, a clue may have been missed. I forget if you mentioned having your thyroid checked? With a cbc, some labs look at the blood sample under the microscope which can give other clues. Not all labs do this without a doctor's request. Some symptoms, including eye floaters can be due to diabetes. BUT, eye floaters can be normal changes with age - you're a little young for that though. Low vitamin D levels affect your calcium absorption (which affects muscle function and much else) among many other things. It's worth a check. It could be your bp is not stable. When you go to the doctor, it's more likely to stay elevated (white coat syndrome!), but perhaps it fluctuates at other times. There is a halter monitor you can wear for 24 hours which records the activity of your heart. With further inquiry they may also consider an EKG or echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart.) I don't want to panic you, just some things to consider if they haven't already been crossed off. I wish you well my friend!
