For the last 8 or 9 yrs I have had multiple health problems that I didn't think were related until a couple weeks ago. My symptoms have been: eczema(on my arms, chest, face, shoulders only); pain in my back, neck, hands, wrists, feet and minor pain in other areas; my hands and feet are always cold and I have constant numbness, weakness,tingling in them(they also turn dark red/ purple at times); depression; anxiety; fatigue; insomnia; memory loss; unable to concentrate; constant headaches; my vision has just recently started to become a little blurry; constant mood swings; dizziness; unable to lose weight (no matter what I do) and my hair has been coming out more than I believe is normal (mostly while brushing or in the shower). All along I've thought most of it was caused by stress. The symptoms come and go, sometimes they are mild and sometimes more severe. I have previously been told by doctors that I have depression and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome but the medication and therapies haven't helped at all. I have no idea what to do or think. Nobody around me understands what I am going through, think I'm overreacting, being lazy or just making excuses. Which is making everything so much worse. I have no desire to do anything except lay in bed because I just don't want to deal with all these problems. It's effecting my family and my work. Please, anybody, help me if you can. Any ideas or information is appreciated. Thank you.
