I am a 33 year old female with a lot of strange symptoms that seem to be getting worse. My doctor just keeps prescribing medications for symptoms but I am through taking all her pills untill I know exactly what is wrong with me.
I will start with what happened first. Two years ago I fainted at work when I woke up it took a secound to figure out what was going on I was disoriented and felt like I was in a cloud or something. My coworkers took me to the ER. The doc thought maybe I had a brain tumor so he did a ct scan. All, ok the only thing wrong he could find was high blood pressure. So her are all my symptoms please help me figure this out.
Dizziness,vertigo,head tingling

Numbness in face
tingling lips
tingling fingers lasts for days very annoying!
tingling toes
loss of bladder controll, had checked no apparent reason
uncontrolled bowl movements, diarreah, constipation, diagnosed ibs
forgetfull, loose train of thought can't find words, forget what I did 5 min ago
weird pain under my ribs, feel like if I move they will break
Sore stiff neck, sometimes I wake up unable to move at all
shoulder pain, muscle
muscle spasms
facial twitcing
eye twitching
leg cramping (muscle)
weight gain
migrain headaches
black out fainting spells
joint pain
trembling hands
mood swings
irrational thoughts
short temper/rage
heart palpatations
& on occasion I have had low blood sugar after eating like 55

I have been to three doctors and a chiropractor. The doc thinks I have panic disorder and she wants me to see a psychiatrist. The Chiropractor thinks mentally I am fine, he thinks I have a bad neck and some dying nerves. He thinks if I see him three times a week I will get better. He did ask me to get tested for ms. He did a neve scan thing and he said two of my nerves register as dead. I am calling a new doc on monday but what do you think?

  • Are you getting regular nutritional nutrients, do you take any supplements?Have you looked at the possibility for a nutrient deficiency? Doctors almost never look at that first off... They need to run a blood panel to make sure you have normal levels of iron, b12, magnesium (which is essential) and other nutrients.Is it possible that you are exposed to chemicals or pollution while at work or at home?Some of what you say sounds like neurologic but with the other symptoms I wonder how your nutritional intake goes.
