Increasingly over the past two years or so, I have noticed my energy level severly decline. Two or three hours out and about, I feel weak, shaky, muscle pains and need to get back seated for rest of day. Additionally, I have increased sweating (primarily at head, neck and back) and this seems to coincide with a hot flash, which makes my abdomen, neck and face feel like a fever.
Also, I sometimes feel tingling in my hands and feet. I get cold sweats at night (similar to hot flash above), both noticably coming on rapidly, lasting 2 - 5 minutes, and then back to normal. This causes difficulty sleeping. And I am told I alternate between snoring heavily and then gasping for breath during the night.
Other symptoms include eye pain, lack of appetite, frequent urination (I have enlarged prostate), cracked heels, alternating diarhea/constipation (sometimes accompanied by severe pain in lower abdomen until bowel movement), what appears to be undigested food in feces (absorbtion issue?), and very foul odor.
I reviewed prior bloodwork and my out-of-range levels were as follows;
Jan 2006; ALT 65 (high), A/G Ratio 2.4 (high), Globulin 1.8 (low)
April 2007; ALT 62 (high), A/G Ratio 1.6 (okay), Globulin 2.5 (low side of normal)
I am a recovering alcoholic (abstinent since 2003), recently quit smoker of 15 years, and currently take 40mg daily oxycoton for back pain.
Does anyone know if these numbers coincide with anything relating to my other symptoms? Any insight is greatly appreciated.
