Sorry in advance if this is long... So I am a 29 year old mother of 2. I have always had a few strange symptoms and always gotten sick very easily. Since I can remember, I have had exreme fatigue, hand tremors and jerky movement issues as well as a horribly embarrassing problem with my hands and feet (they turn bright red and burn and throb whenever I'm standing for more than a few minutes). I had my first migraine at the age of 4. I started having severe stomach distress and episodes of major hair loss at the onset of puberty.
After weaning my first son, I developed keratosis pilaris all over my body, which is now just on the backs of my arms. I also started experiencing enamel loss on my teeth. Recently I went to the dentist and found that I had 9 cavities and horribly receding gums. Since they were filled 6 months ago, two of the fillings have fallen out and my teeth continue to deteriorate.
Last year I devoloped debilitating bladder symptoms and had to quit working. Initially, I did have an infection, but the symptoms keep returning and there is no bacteria to be detected. I feel like when I drink water, it just does not absorb. I was in the ER with dehydration despite having been consuming adequate liquids. Now, I drink and drink, and just have to go to the bathroom every 2 minutes and my skin still feels dry and itchy. Also my hair is about 30% grey already, my skin is fairly wrinkled for my age, and I get bruises for no reason. I have terrible insomnia to top everything off.
I no longer have insurance and the clinic dr. that I see thinks I should see a gastrointerologist and an allergist, but I cannot afford that at this time. Is there anyone else out there who has experienced anything like this? I feel soooo old?!
