Hello All,

For the past year and a half I have been experiencing strange symptoms that doctor's keep chalking up to anxiety or lack of sleep. I don't believe I have problems with either of these. One doctor even suggested that I go on anti-depressive medication to see if the symptoms went away! Ridiculous! For the past year and a half I have been feeling fatigue, disorientations, confusion, cold clammy hands and feet (so cold that I have to put on a jacket in 80 degree weather!), and sometimes I feel as if I am going to pass out. Can anyone help me?!!!! I am scared.

Thank you,

Concerned Boy

  • I just wrote out a really long thing on here and it was deleted...Look into Despmopressin. I do not know what hormone it helps, but it is supposed to help with bloodpressure, cold feet, and dizzyness.I had/have those symptoms also. Mine is caused by complications from having Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma, and Babesia. All Tick Born Illnesses.I had all of your symptoms, but also a whole lot more. Went 17 years undiagnosed. Then I figured it out myself.Whatever you do, Don't Give Up! You need to stay strong and believe in yourself. You know there is something wrong. Don't give up. You will get better.

  • get off the sucralose, splenda and aspartame- found in diet sodaseverything really, even in gum and children's vitamins : \read labels and do not eat this stuff anymore it is poison and it sounds like you have most of the symptomsread about them on the internet check the symptoms for each one- disregard the Industry(company who made the product) advertisements on different sites that tell you they are safe - there are enough testimonials and people who will tell you on facebook groupsyoutubeand google that they were harmed by them and know because they were where you are and stopped eating them and now are better.Trial and error, they learned what was causing them these problems- now you know too!
