I'm a 52 year old female that has suffered with a variety of ongoing issues. I've had countless visits to the GP and numerous tests but still nothing (much) has been found.
Previous blood-tests showed enlarged white blood cells possibly caused by heavy drinking. A CAT scan showed some diverticuliti in my colon. I also had a 24 hour urine test which came back clear. I was examined for a vaginal fistula which also was normal.
My symptoms are daily and range in severity. I have a constant headache (scan came back clear), ringing in my ears but more on the right side. My blood vessels in the inside of my eyes are sometimes broken and a white blob comes and goes around the same area.
I have lower backpain which intensifies when I need to open my bowels. I have noticed a very significant change in veins in my legs which can sometimes turn blue. My urine isn't 'normal' and very strong no matter how much water I drink.
I have noticed a considerable amount of muscle wastage and an increase in joint stiffness.
I have in the past experienced severe stomach ache which then moves to my lower back.
When this is at its worse, I find swallowing difficult and 'feel' like my esophagus is being flooded with my stomach fluids. Sometimes this is so bad that I physically can't lie down to sleep and sleep sitting up in a chair.
I seem to have a constant high temperature which can become difficult to control as I tend to overheat and can't cool down.
I am so fed up feeling ill all the time. Any ideas? Thank you for your time.
