Ok many months ago i hade a spate of infections including tonsilitis and mouth ulcer then an anal rash and itching caused by strep g infection and also i think thrush! lasted a long time and i had a heap of other symptoms ranging from lethargy, pain sore joints to all over itching, diaroeah and difficulty breathing (not nice) i have also been very scared for i'd say the past 6-12months almost paranoid that i am going to die of a terrible disease i am very rational and think this is due to researching my symptoms online and going overboard worring but i have been having panic attacks ( i think) about it really thinking i have a terrible problen the doctor gave me many antibiotics and cream which eventually cleard most of that up but for the past few weeks i have been getting random irregular heart beats and a very mild difficulty breathing and the skin on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet have been patchy peeling and going oddly prunned after a short amount of water exposure (not normal) and i have once again had flu like symptoms and tiredness which has kind of stressed me out again i am not a normally stressed person i have no other worries in my life just the fear that i have some bad problem that is being missed by doctors! i find i get especially anxious after drinking alcohol in any amount and over the past few years i'd say i have had what i would describe as flair ups of feeling like crap with varying symptoms and joint pains that comes and goes and recently i have been getting hayfever like symptoms (not common to me) bluish hands and sometimes when trying to go to sleep or upon waking up i get theese seisure things although i am completly aware and awake my neck feels like it has pins and needles and i have to fight my body to move i feel panicked and worried that i cant move and cant open my eyes?? Could this be due to neck problems from a minor car accident years ago where i had whiplash? I am so sorry that this is so long but my symptoms have been all over the place for ages and i am just getting so worried it's making me worse... any help or advice would be appreciated i am a 27yo female mother of 1 two year old!

  • It sounds like you may benefit from being seen by a rheumatologist. You might have some kind of autoimmune disease, such as an arthritis-type illness or even something like inflammatory bowel disease. They should be able to do blood tests to figure this out.Sorry you are going through this.I hope they can figure it out.Best Wishes.
