I have progressively been getting worse. I think it is related to hormones but no one agrees that hormosnes can cause this problem.
Symptoms:
shakey hands - I am an artist, they only shake enough for me to notice but painting a straight line is impossable right now.
extreem body weakness without drousiness ( though I have been sleeping 8-10 hours when I usually require 6)
When I do walk up stairs or something I feel like I did it with 100lb on my back
heartbeat thumps in my eay
bowel changes
vission disterbances (can't really explain this, it's like I loose focus but I can see everything just fine.
sometimes my feet and hands feel I have to stretch them
my feet get cold when I am hot
anxiety
can't sleep
feel like I am not getting oxygin but pulse ox is normal
some dizzyness
all blood tests are normal
I am taking thyroid and adrenal supports and 4000mg of fish oil
Oh and the most embarresing. I have wicked burping issues.
It seem these problems are cyclical and I will feel great for a week and then I feel bad for 3. I have two wonderful children and love being with them but I am a misserable mom for three weeks out of the month. I am getting so sad that I have not found how to fix this. Now I am petrifide that I am going to die of something and leave my wonderful children alone.
Blood sugar seem fine but they haven't done the full blown test. But if I were going to say anything that is feels like; it would be hypoglycimia. But it will last for days and days... even when I eat. With each new month I seem to be getting worse and worse. Oh by the way I may have been exposed to Epstein Barr virus. My sister has it but I have not seen her in over a year. could these be the same symptoms and can it lay dorment and then you get it latter. It seems like I started having problems right after my son was born and they have progressivy gotten worse. I am nervouse about next month because this month was a bit scarey.
Thank you for you help

  • Hi there....we have a few things in common...3 out of 4 weeks of the month we are miserable, and we both are artists! I too noticed shaking of my hand when painting with my liner brush. That lead me to search symptoms of MS and the thought of my having it drove me nuts. I don't think I am a hyprcondriact (spelling not my strength either), but I do believe I an quite anxious about my health. I had an Aunt die and leave her children behind and so that frightens me, as I too am a mom. The lack of focussing you have is similar to what I have---however, I have always had this. Is it new for you? In any case, I wish you the best. Please post if/when you get a diagnosis. God's Blessings! :o I have progressively been getting worse.

  • I can get so nervouse about my health that I thought there was something mentally wrong with me. In fact it has become a joke in my family about me always haveing something wrong. Or they wont tell me the symptoms of something because I may just come down with it. I personally don't think it is very funny. Do you think that any of this could be hormone related? I have always thought this because it comes with PMS, period starting, ovulation. Could be a fluck but I can't get a doc to check my hormones through the month to see the difference between when I am feeling great for the week and when I am feeling bad. Did docs ever tell you that you may have MS? That has been one of my fears too.By the way, we have something else in common. Spelling!God bless you tooSue
