Hi I was wondering if anyone out there is having my symptoms if they can respond.
A long story short been feeling fatique for about 4 years, sometimes severe. I feel as though I have the flu every day
Here are my symptoms
Extreme scalp pain - like inflammed itchy, stinging like I stuck my head in a bee hive, pins and needles and prickly feeling
Diffuse hair loss about 40% - hair stylist first noticed it
Body hair shedding - no bald spots, it regenerates but lashes nose hair etc shed out, yet not void of any hairs
Strange upper lip rash small bumps and it tingles
Blue feet, not just toes but whole foot when cold - not classic raynauds
Odd hump on thumb nails
Odd hump on large toe nail
Sick often get all my kids illnesses
blurry vision on and off
Odd occular migraine (twice) lost visual center field large white hole followed by terrible headache
anxiety and panic
strange pain on sole of foot
Strong amonia smell on occasion just in nostrils
shortness of breath
feelings of tingle in face and a burn at times
I have had numerous ANA tests for lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid and blood counts and metabolic panels all normal.
I do feel as though I am dying at times, scalp pain can be so violent I have to lay down.
I have seen over 9 doctors the last derm told me to see a shrink. I was devistated. I know my body, and I am not a needy or sickly person, I went downhill after the birth of my third child and currently am unable to do much as I feel very sick. I am taking an antidepressant called elavil for the pain, it only kncks me out it does not help my pain. I have a very healthy life at home and am very fufilled - this is not psychological. At times I hpe something bad shows so at least I know what I am dealing with.
I know anxiety can do alot, but there is NO way one can loose almost half the hair on their head from stress and have it continue to bald after almsot two years, no way one can feel this bad - its a shame we all have to come here because so many of us have odd symptoms with no answer.
