I am a 36 year old male with no history of major health issues with the exception of ocasionaly heart palapations and headaches. In December of 06 I fell Ill with a host of symtoms I have never experienced before and they have progessively gotten worse and not gone away. symtoms are headaches that start with a tingling of the scalp sometimes on top of the head or in the back of the head. Ibuprofen does usually work on these headached. Constant fatigue and burning tingling sensations in my face,ears, arms and legs. Wake up every morning with numb hands and arms. In December I was perscribed Cipro antibiodic and got a circular rash on each side of my cheek that was more under the skin than on top of it and they have never gone away and oftn tingle and burn but is not obvious enough for the doctors to be concerned. My heart palpataions have become more frequent occuring on a daily basis and most recenly have been more of a uraytmia that slows or skips a beat rather than the traditional heart racing. I often have pains in my back and legs, joints etc. that come and go. About two months ago I started to get a pain in my left adomen that seems to move around under my rib cage. I also have chronic pain in my groin and testicls that comes and goes on a daily basis. I often feel nausia and light headed. have had irregular bowles, alternating constapation and disherea for about 5 months. I have seen sever general MD's, and most recently a reumatologist and a gastro specialist. Have had 50 + blood tests done including HIV and other STD's and a host of other tests and all came back negative. I was tested for STD's as I often have burning while urinating. I have recently had a CT scan of my head and they found nothing. The next specialist I am scheduled to see is a Neurologist and if they don't find anything I am not sure where to go from there. The only thing that has turned up so far is low B12 level for which I have been recieving weekly shots for two weeks now with no noticable improvement. Just wondering if anyone shares these same symptoms that may have been diagones. By the way I am a caffine drinker, 2 plus cups a day and a smoker, 10-15 cigarettes/day.
