I need help , I write this in tears , tears of 17 years of unknown illness . I am a 43 old male and Have been feeling very ill for years . I am not critical , infact I eat , breath , sleep (sortof ) , and function . But I am very unhappy all the time as I feel , very fatigied , dizzy and confused all the time , and just in poor health overall . I have been to doctors , but due to no insurance , I get the run around . They just want to give me anti-depressants , I have tried , but they are just a mask . I got this ***t
after a bad cold or virus , I basically woke up with it , felt like crap and then 4 days later i was in the hospital with a major irregular heartbeat .
Diagnosis = Anyxiety . I still have this problem , along with a host of come and go symtoms , but most of the time its the same crap . Iregular heartbeat that sometimes can make me dizzy momentarely , constant fatigue, headaches on the back of my head , anxiety and depression, confusion and dizziness , jsut a out of it feeling . I exercise but if I do , I pay the price later for sure . I am not overwieght , and genrally eat okay , I Used to be very active . This is the problem , due to this crap , I have in the 17 years since this started , I got divorced , lost my job , house , friends , even my kids as they are tired of hearing how sick I feel all the time , I can't help it , I am sick and IIIII know it . I basically sit in my bedroom and avoid the world now ( I live with my parents) and i am rotting away . In the last 5 years or so I have been getting worse , and really have no hope of any good feeling anymore , and I feel like jumping. I think about it more and more everyday . It sucks to be unhealthy , but with no insurance , I am helpless ............ To top it off , my innards must be declining , I just suffered a heartattack two months ago and had to have a stint put in , sure , no problem with the hospital doing that and charging me a 70,000 dollars that I don't have , but that was cut and dry and they had to help me by law . But this other crap , I cannot get help with , nor does anybody care . I might as well be dead as I have lost the willingness to go on , i just can't fucntion , work or make any friends . Even my parents do not now what to do , I have been such a burden to them anyway . I have been to the free - clinic near me and the doctor is treating me for a sinus-infection that I am not sure I have . I have no great ammount of nasal discharge , nor have I had a cold in so long , how could this be ??? He syas due to my headaches and dizzyness , and I admit that I have issues with headaches over my eyes and soreness when I look up , that he wants to treat me with long term antibiotics . Is this right ??? He says I could have had this for many years . I think this maybe another take a guess treatment . My only question is , What id the most organized way of finding whats wrong with me , if not for me but for my 12 year daughter , she doesn't understand this and I think she has forgotten about me . I have thought about going to the best hospital there is and going into the emergency room and fake passing out on the floor to get help , but will this work ??? It sure worked when I had a real heartattack !! I have prayed and prayed for some relief but , I have not got any and its looking grim for me , I really feeling like throwing in the towel................This is my last hope
