Ok, I hope at this time someone can lead me in the right area too look?

Here is what is going on, Symptoms

Fingers numb on both sides
Dizziness
Breath on out taste like menthol/antifreeze
upset stomach
jaw on left side hurts at ear canal
feeling heaviness in arms and legs
swollen hands, and lower legs
lump in throat and chest area
ringing in ears
swollen gland on left side throat

I have been to ER, and reg Dr, and to a local clinic. I have been told 4 diffrent things none have been right. It has been here is antibiotics and everything will be gone.

1. sinus infection
2. vertigo, and dehydration
3. panic attack
4. water on ear drum, infection may be present

Yes in ER heart was checked good, Blood pressure ok a bit elevated was told due to infection ( did not know vertigo was an infection) every other panel good.

please help, I asked my reg DR many questions I have got this answer. Stop smoking, workout, and eat right. I asked for a full Ct scan or full screening to see if anything is present and why i feel so bad ( cancer, heart problems ect)

  • Lots of us get menthol breath. In my own case I think its due to acid reflux (which become obvious after years of getting at times the menthol breath. I suggest you read the 10 page menthol breath/taste thread on this site http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=21824 . Various causes are listed there, the most common seems to be acid reflex. ........ did not know vertigo was an infection Vertigo isnt an infection but it "may" be caused by an infection. Be aware that antibiotics dont always work at all well for ear infections so Ive got another idea to try which I've found works far better. Get a clove of garlic. Crush it and put into a dessertspoon of warm olive or vegetable oil. Best to leave to sit on warm windowsill for a few hrs. Then strain it with some cloth to get the garlic pieces out. Eye drop a couple of times a day the strained oil into your ear. This will clear any infection up if its there.
