Hiya, thanks for taking the time to read my epic story, your comments and thoughts on the following will be most welcome, as I cant be the only sufferer on the planet??.
About 15 years ago I took ill with flu like symptoms, swollen glands etc. A few weeks later my skin started to become itchy although no rash or redness. Several fluid filled blisters appeared and dissappeared without trace, within a couple of days. I started to feel as if every nerve in my body was on fire and I had a crawling sensation under my skin. I was admitted to hospital and underwent about every test possible to no avail! In the end I was advised that my condition was probably being caused by a virus and that it would disappear in time. I got on with my life as best I could and put my ailments on back burner and never mentioned them to friends or family, although I suffered them daily!! I finished my Masters, got a great job, wife and family. About 6 months ago I found myself with severe pain at the back of my left eye. A visit to the Doc and the optician found nothing, the pain continued for weeks and then I noticed I could not write for tremors in my hand and latterly my head when trying to concentrate.Dizziness when mobile has also become an issue, as has blurred vision. I have also found that I react to any form of medication! I feel as if I am sunburnt from the inside out!!
But life goes on, although an answer would be nice. Thanks.

  • You are not alone. I used to face similar problem (excluding the initial flu like symptoms). I would be fine for a while then have tremors and dizziness then sudden pains that persisted for a while. Finally after 12 years of having those feelings come and go as they please as well as a few more that have come once maybe twice in those 11 years I ended up going to a psychiatrist since that was the only doctor that was left to visit. Now two years later after having changed almost every aspect of my life and having gone thought a series of stress related treatments both medical and physical, everything is back to normal. The difficult part in my case was to accept that what was going on with me was stress related and not something else. I was the virus attacking my self ...
