I am currently working here in the middle east and i started feeling odd.

we went to the doctor for how many times but they cannot determine what it is.

first, i started gaining up too much weight, from size 9 to size 15 now and my stomach is really big like i am a 6 months pregnant. Later on, i started feeling there's something in my throat and in my heart that feels so hard and edgy, it goes up and down espacially during at night. I am having difficulties in breathing too and sometimes i wake up at night catching my breath and my chest is so heavy.

My body is also shaking inside or having tremors, sometimes at night sometimes at noon when i take a nap.

I feel nausea when i am driving, i thought that cars are moving back and roads are sliding down but i realized it was just me.

I have frequent stomach pains like when you ate something fouled or spoiled food, then followed by diarrhea sometimes constipation.

These past few days, my left body is starting to weaken, when i am standing my limbs are suddenly sore then my feet, so i have to grab to something not to fall down.

The last time we went to the doctor, the doctor said i have mild goiter, and she just gave some medicines for heart burn.

i was also diagnosed of endometriosis earlier, but i think the pills had stopped it.

Can somebody help me?

  • Have you thought of going to see a neurologist. It might be an idea to ask your doctor if he could send you to one. Good luck

  • Bloating? IBS? Tremors? Weakness? Unbelievable congestion?Sounds a lot like the worst I got before I stopped eating wheat. Look at gluten intolerence and Celiac's disease. It manifests differently in everyone but it usually ends up with a lot of seemingly unrelated symptoms. The important ones that are the dead give-away are the stomach descriptions, congestion, and general feeling of weakness.If it isn't gluten (wheat), it could be another food allergy.Oh, and everyone says its psychological because of how grossly under-diagnosed it is there is almost no public conciousness of it. You'll get used to it. :(

  • If it only started when you went to the middle east could you have picked up some sort of virus over there or could you be drinking contaminated water?

  • You may have contracted parasites from contaminated food or contaminated water. My friend had the same symptoms as you did and indeed, she had a tapeworm. To test for parasites, a stool sample is required.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Parasites

  • If the doctor says the person has a goiter, then the person needs to be on levoxyl or something like it....get yourself some thyroid to take...careful, you need a proper dosage, not too much...On top of that, it sounds like a tapeworm or parasite...good luck with that...what about pregnant....kind of a parasite there, too..

Can somebody help me?Were you vaccinated before going to the Middle East?It looks like you are not using Complex B, hence the bulging in the abdomen.The limp and throat symptoms are signs of pancreatic and liver unbalance.Visit an Oriental Medicine Doctor/Acupuncturist.Try to supplement with Complex B- if an adverse reaction occurs you might be allergic to Complex B and you might need NAET treatment (naet.com)Drink waterAvoid fats, sugar, soda, and coffee.Best.

Good thing about it though, you eliminate gluten, you eliminate future damage

  • The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism vary widely, depending on the severity of the hormone deficiency. But in general, any problems you do have tend to develop slowly, often over a number of years.At first, you may barely notice symptoms such as fatigue and sluggishness, or you may simply attribute them to getting older. But as your metabolism continues to slow, you may develop more obvious signs and symptoms, including:Increased sensitivity to coldConstipationPale, dry skinA puffy faceHoarse voiceAn elevated blood cholesterol levelUnexplained weight gainMuscle aches, tenderness and stiffnessPain, stiffness or swelling in your jointsMuscle weaknessHeavier than normal menstrual periodsDepressionWhen hypothyroidism isn't treated, signs and symptoms can gradually become more severe. Constant stimulation of your thyroid to release more hormones may lead to an enlarged thyroid (goiter). In addition, you may become more forgetful, your thought processes may slow or you may feel depressed.Advanced hypothyroidism, known as myxedema, is rare, but when it occurs it can be life-threatening. Signs and symptoms include low blood pressure, decreased breathing, decreased body temperature, unresponsiveness and even coma. In some cases, myxedema can be fatal.

  • it does not sound like a parasite, most parasites cause you to lose weight. i have never heard of one that caused weight gain. it does sound like a thyroid problem. you should get that checked out. and if thats not the problem it could be neurological. not that you are crazy, but there could be something that is not working in your brain properly that could cause this.
