Within the last year I have been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, Gastroparesis and Bipolar II. Gastroparesis is usually caused by having Type I Diabetes for a long period of time and rarely associated with Type II. I am female, 44, not overweight and I get a moderate amount of exercise. I don't have a family history of Diabetes or Bipolar disease. I have uncontrolled blood sugar so I definately have it, but not sure why. Tests for slow stomach emptying confirmed, so I know the Gastroparesis diagnosis is certain. As for the Bipolar II, again no family history, but I do have irritability and insomnia, so who knows? I also have severe upper arm pain with no injury, anemia, low potassium, tiny water blisters like with a sunburn or prickly heat on my trunk, arms, and lower back, severe flushing of the face, excessive sweating, acne, elevated blood pressure, and a constant low grade fever. The fever has been around 99.6 - 100.2 for months, but I have no infection. The doctors are treating me for the Diabetes, Gastroparesis, and Bipolar. I am taking more medications than someone in a nursing home. I was tested for Cushing's, but it was negative. I am not menopausal, at least not yet. No doctor seems to believe the low grade fever, anemia, low potassium, arm pain, acne (never even had it as a teenager), tiny blisters, elevated blood pressure, flushing, and sweating are related to anything. Do any of these non related symptoms make sense to anyone? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
