I have been suffering with these symptoms for years and cannot get a diagnosis. I have been to many doc's, including a lymphedema specialist who diagnosed me with lymphedema with no cause or tests of any kind (???). I am a female, age 36. I can't stand this any more and am at wit's end and just miserable. Any serious advice or any similar personal testimonies will be taken into consideration, and very much appreciated!
I have severe and constant swelling in my legs and feet that gets worse in heat & humidity, and also at times my abdomen gets very swollen and hard; hair loss and thinning since puberty; I have had 2 miscarriages; I produced no milk after my one successful pregnancy; I am hot almost all the time, and my face and neck get reddened patches often; depression and fatigue; obesity and have a very very hard time losing weight (took me 6 mos. to lose 19 lbs doing Weight Watchers faithfully); I had my first grand-mal nocturnal seizure in my 8th month of pregnancy and then had 2 or 3 more within the next year or so, then was put on Dilantin - haven't and had any more seizures since getting on Dilantin; I have gas and bloating, and have constant heartburn if I don't take anything for it, and often feel nauseus and sometimes will get bad stomach cramping and the chills after eating raw vegetables or sometimes fish.
