My whole life I have been told there was nothing wrong with me and there was. It started with a bleeding peptic ulcer at age 2, SKY HIGH amylase levels and pancreatitis by age 8 and pneumonia with 80% blockage and cynosis by age 9. By 10 I was exibiting physical ticks and vocal ticks that eventually (after being told I was doing it for attention and that nothing was wrong with me) led to a Tourette's Syndrome/OCD diagnosis by age 13. Here I am now at 24 with more problems and no one can seem to help me. I have dark fingertips with clubbed formations beginning. I have had about 3 CRAZY rashes on my arms or legs within the last 3 years. ITCHY RED rashes with no cause, they go away after about 2 weeks or so and never show up in the same place. My hands have started to tremble now constantly, I notice they shake more when I get nervous or jittery which happens all the time. With no reason to be nervous, all of a sudden I will start sweating heart racing hands tremble and I feel "wired but tired". I have had my DHEA panel drawn for PCOS, Adrenal issues, I have had TSH and free t4 levels drawn for hyperthyroidism even a urine cortisol test. Everything comes back normal but I know there is something wrong. I have even bounced the thought around of my OCD and hypochondriac but its not making it up if I have the physical signs and symptoms to go off of. I am young and have my whole life ahead of me, but I feel there is something seriously wrong and no one can seem to help me. Has anyone ever had this or similar problems??? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
