I am so frustrated. I began to experience symptoms over 4 years ago. I've been to the docs, but no answer. I know my body. There are DEFINITE changes and my lifestyle's been affected. :mad:
I started experiencing extreme fatigue, joint & muscle pain, and swelling over 4 years ago. I went to the doc. The only thing that showed up was a slightly elevated ANA. He said nothing to worry about. :confused:
I switched docs. She ordered more blood work. The ANA was still slightly elevated.
Then last year, I began having fainting spells. Nothing showed up on CT scan, ECG, Echo or Cartoid Duplex. There was a huge drop in BP and increase in pulse between sitting & standing. She said I may have a low fluid volume and also referred to a cardiologist (awaiting appt).
I've also had spells of muscle jerking and shakiness, and occassional difficulty with balance. I get out of breath and have chest pain climbing 1 flight of stairs. Only 2 months ago I could run up them no problem!
A few months ago I began to have menopause symptoms (I'm 32 yrs.). I had severe hot flashes, night sweats, acne, spotting, drastically swollen breasts, large weight gain, and hair loss. My OB/GYN put me on birth control.
PLEASE HELP! I also have depression, which I'm on meds for. Is this all in my head? I know my body has changed. I can't work like I used to. Thanks! :D
