I do not feel well but my doctor hasnt done anything to help me. I am always tired and can sleep 12 hour without feeling refreshed in the morning. This has been affecting me for the past two years. I have also been losing my hair steadily for the past two years and have no signs of hairloss in my family. My doctor has said this is alopecia but i dont think it is. It not only falls out in the front and top areas but also the sides and back of my head. When i run my hand through my hair i will grab on average three hairs that fall out. My pillow is full of hair and it is scary to see how much hair is on my towel after i dry it.

Also in the past two years i have experienced a huge increase in sweat. I sweat somtimes no matter if i am hot or cold and it is uncontrolable. I have tried various anti persperants and nothing helps. I dont feel it is a normal amount of sweating. My hands and feet get really sweaty along with my armpits.

I have also been experiencing sinus problems. I have recently gotten a nasal spray that has cleared up this problem. But the heavy feeling and bags that i have gotten under my eyes in the past couple months that i thought were related to the sinus problem are gettin worse. My eyes dont look normal. they seem to by puffy or bulging looking and it hurts behind them constantly. I cant seem to think clearly.

I have also been having diaheria on average 4 times a week. It is not related to any foods that I am eating as i have tried to combat this by eating healthier foods.

These symptoms of fatigue, hairloss, excesive sweating, swollen like feeling eyes and diaheria have seem to come on gradualy. This has made it hard to explain to a doctor. I am now getting overwhelmed with anxiety and dont know what to do. I feel depressed and can never relax.

please help.

  • Have you had any weight loss?Sounds like hyperthyroidism to me but other considerations include P.O.T.S.Your excess sweating is called hyperhidrosis.IT can be caused by thyroid problems,pituitary problems.diabetes,and some forms of tumors.Also,anxiety makes it worse,as does caffeine or other stimulants.You need a thorough check-up.

  • I agree with the post above. This is anecdotal, and thus not at all scientific, but my husband had many of the exact symptoms you describe, like crushing fatigue, hair loss, "sinus" issues, and he was recently diagnosed with an unruptured brain aneurysm & had surgery for it. This is pretty unlikely to be your problem, but you should be thoroughly checked out.
