Hi! I'm hoping you can help me find out what is wrong with me. Lately, I've been having these weird symptoms:

-Fatigue (I can sleep for 12 hours, but still be tired)
-Loss of memory
-Can't concetrate
-Irregular menunstrul cycle
-Stomach cramps

I'm not sure if these have anything to do with the same problem, but thought I'd put them out there:
-Asthma (I've had asthma for almost 10 years now. I was put on singulair, and that was working great. A week ago, I ran out of the medication and my asthma has been horrible since, mainly coughing)
-For the past 5 months, I've noticed whenever I take a walk outside, I get this strange pain in my stomach. It's not a cramp, but rather a burning, stabbing pain. It happens in cold or hot weather, and is not heartburn. The pain varies from hardly noticable to extreme pain (once, it got to the point where I couldn't stop wheezing and coughing. I was literally gasping for air.), sometimes I can walk fine for an hour outside without it! When I come inside from my walk and sit down to rest, the pain will dissapear in 5-10 minutes. It doesn't happen indoors, I can run and walk fine in a gym. We asked my doctor, but he didn't know what it could be.
-I have really bad circulation in my hands and feet. My feet are constantly cold, and will sometimes become red/purple and blotchy (same with my legs and hands) for no reason.

I went to my doctor yesterday and had my blood drawn and tested for thyroid problems (I thought I may have some, my mother had thyroid problems as a teen); but everything came up fine, nothing was even borderline.

So, if anyone can help me figure this out, I'd appreciate it a lot! :)

  • Have you been to an allergist? It is possible that you have developed out door allergies.. which may trigger or worsen your asthma and could be causing other problems. It could be a "sun" allergy! which would explain the out door effect. As far as the circulation.. consider speaking to your doctor about a diabetes test, it is notorious for poor circulation.I wish you the best of luck and good health!
