I have been sick for one year. I woke up with abdominal disention and then three days later a blood clot in my right leg. (Deep-vein thrombosis and I gained approximately 50 pds in two weeks). If this was not enough, I woke up a couple weeks later with arthritis type symptoms that are even worse first thing in the morning. I had headaches and nausea and things just kept getting worse. I was walking 5 miles and now can't even walk 1/4 of one mile. Then in November of last year woke up doubly disended, abdominal explosion they call it and started having vertigo and dizziness. I have since been experiencing severe chest pains sometimes during the day, but mainly at night. I'm swollen all over and can't wear regular cloths. I now can't bend over and I have flank pain mainly on my left side. I'm also now experiencing back pain down the middle and left side of my body, because there is too much weight in the front. Doctors now say I have a heart murmur that I have never had before. additionally which is so weird I started having burning over 6 months ago on just the soles of my feet. However, now the burning is greater but just on the right sole. While testing me doctors find inflamation in my intestines but not the bigger medical issue causing all of my symptoms and problems The dr's have ruled out liver, pancreas, bile ducts, andrenal glands mostly (but one part of the blood test showed that I was lower than normal), but only higher than normal signifies possible tumor. Chest Ct also found after being given test twice no cancerous nodule but a nodule. Also found nodule on back side of female parts (uterus, ovaries), but retest showed it went away. Now, no clues. Saw 10 specialists so far. Being sent to Rheumatologist, but still confused if not gasterointerology issue or endocrinalogy issue. Dr says could be pulmonary issue too. Very confused and getting worse. Please help me get diagnosed
