For 10 months I have been dealing with symptoms that just won't go away, and doctor's are baffled. Some have even given up, because they feel if they rule out three problems that is good enough. I was 19 when it started and now I am 20 years old. It has been tough dealing with these symptoms, because the doctors seem to not care.

My Symptoms are:
Numbness in legs(Recent)
Nausea(Mild to Severe)-Since Beginning
Fatigue(Vitamin D Prescription)Helped
Bruising(legs, arms)
Swelling of face, hands, and feet
Lack of Appetite in the beginning and now again
Bone Pains(Since Aug)
Worse Vision( Aug)
Red Spots that just show up on legs
Long time for wounds to heal
Weight Loss (-10) It goes up and down constantly
Feeling sick after eating
Side Pains
Slow healing of wounds
Low Blood Sugar(47s to 69) all the time

I have had a:
Head MRI, Kidney Ultrasound, Upper Gi, Colonoscopy, Pelvic Ultrasound, numerous blood tests(Thyroid, Liver, Mono, Celiac, Lupus, and many others), Hormone Testing, Nutrition Advice

In the beginning it started off with severe nausea, lack of appetite, fatigue. It is now to what it started off with as severe nausea and lack of appetite. I can hardly eat anything again which is making me mad, because it shouldn't be like this. I am no where near depressed, full of anxiety, or making this up. I want to be normal again, but without a diagnosis it is hard. I want to be able to enjoy many foods again since it is summer. I want some ideas, because this should not happen to anyone.

I read so many comments on here and it is so unfortuante many face unknown problems.

Thank You

The only diagnosis so far was: Severe Levels of Vitamin D Defiency: Took 8 weeks of prescription. Just finished. Only improved energy and fatigue.

  • I agree with alissa get checked for diabetes. Definately keep an eye on the blood sugar as you do not want to have it drop to low as it can kill you. https://health.google.com/health/ref/HypoglycemiaBest way you raise your blood sugar is to find a nack for what tends to raise your blood sugar. There are some common ones but sometimes there are different foods that will raise ones blood sugar in one person a lot quicker than in another person. Some quick common ones to raise blood sugar: OJ(add sugar if you can stand it)regular soft drinksfruitmilkhard candyhoneyThere are more but that is some for you.
