I do not know what is going on I am 35year old female, have been diabetic since I was 5 but my hypo hemoglobin tests have run in the normal range for over 14 years. My symptoms may come from a parasite or spru infection received while talking to someone who sneezed in my face. Symptoms include-
-constant sinus drainage for over 10 months, with resulting bronchitis, pneumonia.
-I was diagnosed as asthmatic in Nov. and have already been on multiple types of inhalers, previous to the sinus I had no asthma symptoms.
-Diarrhea for about 3 months, now alternating with constipation.
-Thirsty all of the time, but I drink about 1.5 gallons of water each day.
-My hair is coming out by the brush full and is much thinner than ever before.
-My lips have a small red ring around them that is dryer than the rest of my lips.
-Hands aged in 2 months my hands turned to looking like I was 72 years old then all of the skin on both of my hands peeled off in approximately 2 days. Now they are more tender. But they are easily dried and cracking. And I am getting scrapes and cuts easily.
-I have lost over 20 lbs without really trying.
-I have had my voice disappear without symptoms, but for a while a small dose of corn syrup returned my voice. Now my vocal power and range is gone when I can speak, I worry about this because my job requires verbal communication and I can only speak softly almost whisper. My vocal cords are swollen also.
-I have collapsed twice without low sugar once in Nov. and once in March 09.
-I get light headed, and feel tremors that other people do not notice.
-One of my nostrils has cracked twice, and is still cracked now and is not healing easily.
-I have had my feet and hands swell up, and this didn't go away for over 5 hours.
-I am tired and am having trouble sleeping well, bought a new bed in January.
