I am a 43 yr old female. I have been Insulin dependent for 9yrs - average sugars no complications. I have been told all the symptoms I have been experiencing are not related to the diabetes. It started about 6 yrs ago with
strange symptoms - I will start from head to toe. I have headaches, feel lightheaded and dizzy, bone and joint pain, pain in legs with weakness and trouble walking sometimes. My hair has thinned out. Fatigue and tiredness to an extent where I take 2-4 hr naps after work. I get charlie horses in my sleep that wake me up in the middle of the night. My recent I have had memory problems and trouble concentrating. I have gotten lost or forgotten what I was doing. The only thing I have found out that I have a vitamin d defiency and l-carnitine in my blood is low. Been in the hospital twice for suspected heart attack and possible stroke both ruled out.

Sorry sooooo long but any help would be great!

Thank you

  • Thank you sooo much,What is bioset therapy? I never heard of that.I have been tested for soooo many things and nothing comes up. I was told CFS could be it. But because of the vitamin d loss which caused osteomalcia in my bones the new dr thinks its more. I've been tested for MS, lupus myathesnia gravis, rheumatoid arthritis, I was also tested for Cushing's that was when the symptoms started. Maria
