I am a 35 year old male and I have been suffering from a variety of symptoms for a number of years now. The symptoms have been varied but for the last 14 months have increased and become much worse. I have been unable to get a diagnosis.
Main symptoms are nausea and dizziness and a 'head fog' - which occurs virtually every day. Occasionally I will throw up but this is not always the case.
For the last year I have been getting severe attacks of Hives approxiamtley every fortnight. These can cause collapse due to low blood pressure and I have been taken by ambulance to the hopital on three occassions so far.
I get a severe pain just below my sternum from time to time which normally lasts up to 1 hour before subsiding. Also on a few occasions in the last year I have been sick with what apeared to be a virus - i.e. violent vomiting until my stomach was empty, then severe wretching. I am not so sure this is a virus anymore given the other symptoms.
The doctor has prescribed me ant-acid tablets for stomach-acid, anti-histamines to try and control the hives, and an epi-pen for when the attackes are severe.
I have been referred to a gastroentorologist who has taken a lot of blood for tests and these showed up normal. I have also had a scan of all my major abdominal organs, which showed up normal.
Anyone heard of anything similar? I am getting increasingly concerned now and it is starting to have a major impact on my everyday life.
Thanks for listening...
