Hello, I need help, I have been having these symptoms for a while, but I am afraid that I will be told it is all in my head. I have no insurance and no money.

I have no energy at all. I wake up tried. I get spells of nausea just out of no where, my muscles feel like they are shrinking and that having my arms and legs pulled would make them feel better. I have pains in my neck, both sides of my spine and around to my chest under my breast and rib cage. and down my arms and hands and legs and feet. I am always thirsty and I pee often. I have recently started loseing weight rather fast without trying. please help.
I am 25 years old

  • Sounds like you're diabetic; you have a stupid doctor. Try to find a good chiropractor to give you a few adjustments, too. You have to be careful and check with people as to who they go to and who is good.

  • Yes it does sound like exactly like diabetes - you should have that checked immediately as its very dangerous to leave it!! Start now on a diet to support healthy blood sugar levels - If you like I can send you one which have one for my clients (I really need to put these things on a web site). freehelp99@yahoo.com Obiously eating a lot of sugars, soda, and refined food will cause diabetes. But if your diet's pretty good, hormone imbalance (including insulin) can be aggravated by every day adrenal stress - not just from emotional "stress", but from physical stressors on the body...These days high tech seems to be the major culprit. What kind of job do you do? Since we're more sensitive at night, and our bodies need to be relaxed to heal properly, make sure your cell phone is NOT in your bedroom at night, also clock radio, etc. WIFI is very disruptive to the regeneration process, especially when we're in the Delta sleep phase.Karen

  • You have to deal with the insurance and no money thing first...find a place that will allow you to see a doctor on a sliding scale...call social services, borrow money, or go to a walk-in, or free clinic, ....ask around. It sounds like you need some blood tests and I would recommend tests for diabetes and thyroid and anemia and your doctor may recommend more. Joan

  • first get checked for diabetes... If that dont pan out.. You could have chronic fatigue syndrome. This often causes thirst and "needing to pee" a lot along with your other symptoms. i suggest to check out http://wwcoco.com/cfids/bernesx.html and maybe look into CFS.

Yes - and if you search it you'll also find that even CFS is strongly linked to every day EMF's (electrical fields/radiation) stress mainly because of the effect on the hormones and immune system. Start with what you can do NOW and clear your sleep area of these stresses..

  • Those are also TYPICAL psychosomatic symptoms (muscle tension, nausea, weight loss, chest pain, "bad" mornings, thirst). It really can be, so to say, "all in your head" but the pain and the problem is REAL. You could be suffering from anxiety, stress and/or underlying depression. The way people usually find out is that all the tests their doctor runs show up as normal and nobody can figure out what's wrong. That of course imply that you go and get overall tests done with a doctor who cares and who will be sympathetic to the state of your finances. To rule out all possible physical causes is essential. Don't wait too long. Shop around, ask around, see if you're eligible for financial help, monthly payments. Go to Mexico if you have to =] In any case your health is more important than anything else. Good luck :*

  • Thou the occassional one with CFS does have EMF sensitivity.. thou i know hundreds with CFS.. i only know a couple who have EMF sensitivity with it. So i wouldnt say that EMF sensitivity is common in CFS as it's a rare issue. To the original poster... did you get a diabetes check?

  • If you live in the US, you should be able to get free or low cost care at a health clinic. The federal government pays for these clinics and they are everywhere. There should be at least one in each county I think.Another option if you can't find a health clinic is to order blood tests online which can be done in most states without a doctor's approval. One website called DirectLabs lets you order the standard, routine tests which include a complete blood count, thyroid profile, kidney & liver profile, cholesterol, and a few other tests including glucose (to test for diabetes) for only $97. (I think I was charged over $100 just for a thyroid test at a local lab) You could then discuss the results with a doctor. It would be cheaper than paying full price at a lab and paying for two doctor visits (one to order the tests and another to get the results). If you don't have much money and are worried about diabetes, the test is less than $30. I've never used these sites because I didn't learn of them until I got my insurance back so I don't know much about them but I know the tests are paid online but performed at a local lab (LabCorp I think).

  • It does sound like Chronic Fatique Syndrome OR something that I was diagnosed with a few years ago... Fibromyalgia. They share quite a few symptoms, but are different disorders. It is a challenge to find a doc that believes you and won't tell you that it's all in your head. Stick to your guns and stay strong.
