I am 39 years old an Army wife (military doctors are not my choice for good health care) and my husband has terminal cancer. Yes I suffer from depression, but my health is what is breaking me. I am suffering from sweating, night sweats as well as day time feeling of being cold but sweating, hot flashes, low blood pressure, constant headaches even migraines, palpitations with nothing noted on an EKG, very very severe fatigue it has become crippeling. I bruise very easily, my veins in my legs rupture fro no apparent reason more so when I am driving long distances for my husband's treatments. I have a cyst in my spine but it can not be removed, it does put pressure on my syatica. And I am a chronic pain sufferer with no treatment. I am desperate for help in treating myself so that I can care for my husband and kids better.

  • possible chronic fatigue immunity dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS). 86% in CFIDS have low BP and heart palpitations etc are common in it http://wwcoco.com/cfids/bernesx.html Keep this in mind..but if it is this.. all other possible things need to be ruled out first. CFIDS is a quite serious illness.

Check out Chiari Malformation and there are 6 types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
