  • Do you have dry skin, dry hair, or any hair loss? Any eye/vision problems?How is your digestion? Gas bloating after eating? Any urinary problems? Poor sleep? Any skin conditions? Sorry for all the questions, but it will help figure out a path to look into. Do you take any supplements? Nutritional deficiencies can cause muscle spasm and other symptoms. DOM

  • Hello,my hair is dry,my skin is fine,my appetite is varying and yes i do have gas problems after eating.I am not loosing hair but my sleep is very poor.I have trouble sleeping and when i do fall asleep it is only for a couple of hours.I am very stressed and have been for many years.I sometimes have a very sharp pain from the base of my head that shoots to the top and it is quite painful.I have had my left hand curl up and my lip droops and i salivate.That isnt regular but when i told the doctor he never took much notice.I often have a pain in my stomach which is very painful and lasts for around 2....4..minutes.Thank you very much for your correspondence so far,i am truly not coping well and live alone and have no_one in my life.Regards..Brett

  • I am having the loss of appetite, weight loss, hair is dry and brittle...I am going to check my thyroid medication/level for think its not right ...as for the stomach problems could be IBS.....that will cause you all sorts of problems bloating, pains, diarrhea then constipation, I also have low heart rate but mine doesn't drop below 48 and 50 so they do nothing at that rate........go see a gastro for your stomach problems and endocrinologist for the rest of the symptoms if not an internal medicine doctor....they will also run test for you

  • I am sorry I don't have any real ideas for a diagnosis, but I do recommend you take some quality supplements. The B vitamins are also known as the stress vitamins - they are usually deficient with stress, and you need more under stress. Try to find a good sublingual you can take under the tongue. Also, essential fatty acids, EFA's, are vital, and we can ONLY get these nutrients through our food and with supplements. It is a very common deficiency that can cause all sorts of problems. Folic acid as well. The very best liquid supplement I have found is called INTRAMAX, and is only sold through healthcare professionals. You can ask your doc about this, or google it for more info. It's very expensive, but is an amazing product. As for the doc who didn't take much notice concerning your hand curling and lip drooping - this is a serious sign and needs to be further investigated, I think. Please look for a different doc who will listen to you, or try an alternative doc who is more likely to take ALL of your symptoms into consideration. Alternative docs treat the whole body in a more holistic way. To find an acupuncturist near you please visit www.acufinder.com and type in your zip code. Best wishes to you.DOM

Best wishes to you.DOMSome questions for the Original Poster:How is the back of your throat? Is it red? lumpy? do you see any debris or something that looks like pus or indigested food?I am really trying to pin point if you actually have a bacterial infection. I do think that your body is weak and perhaps that's why you don't have a fever.But your symptoms are the symptoms of a weak toxic body struggling to fight an infection.Did you have a urine test? (a lot of protein or blood in urine?) how are your liver enzymes? (normal/elevated).Your fainting spells and palpitations might be at least partially caused by dehydration. If you do have an infection or a toxic load in your body, organs need more water than we regularly consume.Make sure you slowly bring yourself to drink 9+ glasses of water gradually and in between meals. You can put a dash of sea salt to your water if you are afraid to bring your body out of balance due to the sudden increase of water in your body.You need:* Minerals for the spasm (Potassium, magnesium)* Omega 3 to repair your cells*Vitamin C to aid digestion and help the immune system*Avoid caffeine, food additives, sugar.*Perhaps you want to look into Oil of Oregano and see if you want to take it to treat infections, parasites, bacteria, viruses, poor bile flow, etc.As Acuann mentioned, find a good Doctor of Oriental Medicine.Take Care:Eatafruit78.

  • Is it possible you have polyposis of the sinus. Possibly even polyposis of the bowel as well. I currently am seeking diagnosis of abdominal pain for yrs, now very high in my abdomen. The current diagnosis is polyposis of small bowel. I will be undergoing another test to accurately identify which type of polyposis I have. Hopefully not malignent. If indeed polyposis, surgery is treatment perscribed. Since I have been researching polyposis I have seen a lot of polyposis of the sinuses. If you do a web search on polyposis you will find many sites dedicated to sinual polyposis. I may be wrong, but then again... I hope you the bestLesa
