Please help me with a proper diagnosis for the following symptoms/description:

I'm an 19 year old male. I smoke cigarettes and have a history of past addiction. Stress and anxiety seem to be always present in my mind and seem to have an always-present over-bearing effect.

I find myself caught up in my thoughts a lot. Processing negative thoughts at what I would think to be an abnormally fast rate. I find myself obsessively pacing; walking into random thoughts, or walking the same path over and over thinking worrying.

Over the past few years I've started to experience a full-body tension. Which now is rather severe. To describe it, it feels like all the muscles in my body are tensing causing random areas of my body to hurt badly when moving. The majority of the pain is experienced within the length of the back and at the waist.

The severity of tension within my body; muscles is to the point as if it feels as though it is causing some form of eroding.

My breathing feels very heavy. I have found myself trying to regulate the rhythm of my breathing many times. Meaning my breathing has been "off-beat" in various situations.

Stress and anxiety seem to be overwhelming almost at all times. Constant full-body pain. I experience extreme fatigue everyday. I go to bed and wake up as if it's been three seconds in between going to bed and waking up. I do experience any dreams at all. I go to bed tired and wake up. I start to experience extreme fatigue within an hour of waking up if not immediately.

Wearing even remotely tight clothing around the waist, Ex: Under-armor shorts is not noticeable at first and then it starts to cause pain which gets progressively worse and then extremely severe.

Wearing belts/shorts/tight clothing causes severe pain.

Any clothing obstruction/protrusion such as overlapping, creased, or wrinkled shirt causes extreme discomfort. Tight clothing also has this effect as stated.

I feel progressively worse it terms of bodily pain and fatigue over the day.

Height: 5 "10
Weight: 145 lbs.
Age: 19
Gender: Male

Someone please help me.

  • You can work on yourself by learning EFT: www.emofree.com work on one issue at a time until you cycle through your thoughts and body issues. It will make a dramatic change in your condition if you decide that is what you want. Free things are: rule out STDs at your free county STD clinic for your testicular pain..you need to check for free or reduced clinics by making a few phone calls to find out what clincs have plans like that. You should rule out diabetes, so you need a good check up...be an advocate for your own health. buy filtered water at a water store...eat healthier; you may have a vitamin deficiency so you may want to supplement with a good natural vitamin.

  • I know that pain from overlapping clothing, it's certainly not all in your head. Anxiety and pain are often due to bad absorption of nutrients and/or bad elimination of wastes. Smoking makes your body acidic but so does meat, and all the usual unwise foods. Stress and anxiety will result from the various body systems not working right, and the other way round of course (nice circle). Do KEEP the smoking for now, it helps too and is not the main harm.You may have parasites - a virus, worms, or bacteria (lyme, tick fever). To some extent doctors can test for that, but often it takes the best labs to find it. Do eat only healthy food and drink only water for now, as you may be heading for potent medicine, and you should give your body the best chance. Think twice however before adding any medicine, it will tax your system even further. Boil drinking water and then leave it in the sun to cool, for the chlorine.Make this experiment. For 7 days, eat only brown rice cooked in water, topped with steamed veggies (cabbage, broccoli, pumpkin, carrots, sweet potato, spinach, cucumber) and a little salt. Additionally, overcook veggies in water, discard the veggies and keep the remaining water in the fridge up to a day, to drink in between. For the rest, drink only water. Supplement only with slow-release vitamin C, about 500 mg per day. And take a good probiotic. In this way you eliminate meat, soy, milk, oils, eggs, yeast, wheat, overdose of vitamins, sugar etc. If you feel better in a week, add deep ocean hake fish, without oil, steamed in a microwave. Then add some fruit, then beans, then fat-free cottage cheese, etc. If it gets worse, start from the beginning.In my case, I react very badly to meat, but fish is ok. This is hard for a Boer. I also need to be careful with soy, milk, oils, yeast and sugar. Others in my family are almost the same, my mom cannot even have fish. Others definitely no soy, yeast etc. Wheat is fine all round so we bake our own soda bread, with no yeast or soy and not much milk. We also now make fresh carrot juice and lots of fresh mung bean sprouts. All our problems are gone (some very serious) and we have much more energy than before. I don't know if it will last, but for now it works. Sprout your own mung beans - only from those meant for sprouting, other seeds have been poisoned. Eat a lot of sprouts, raw, discard the green hulls. Oh and stir some powdered ascorbic acid into rice before it boils, to remove molds. Try to eat everything immediately after cooking and not to keep leftovers, due to molding.I know the above diet from our Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM) doctor. My mom (80) had very bad circulation together with eczema on her legs and feet. Plus difficult high blood pressure and a slow, irregular heartbeat. Very tired. Also incontinence, and she had two light strokes. Having a good medical fund she went to all the expert Western doctors, in vain. The TCM doctor cured all of it. She has been off ALL medicine for over a year, only taking his herbs at times, and none of that either for 2 months now. She could hardly walk and now does 5 km per hour on a treadmill. He also fixed her hernia, that her Western doctor wanted to operate on - one could feel it from the outside, it got smaller and now it is gone - only from acupuncture and herbs.So when you are finished with Western doctors one day, visit a few Chinese shops / restaurants in your area. Ask their oldies who the best TCM doctor is around there. (Note however that many of them only believe in Western doctors.) Research this TCM doctor a bit, once found. Here in South Africa we have a council they should belong to, one can reclaim their fees from medical funds etc. All this is needed but proves nothing yet, so ask many real Chinese as well - there is an invisible energetic side to their most useful doctors. If s/he is from Taiwan and a Taoist/Buddhist, they seem to try harder. Expect results after 1 or 2 visits. Help you stop smoking as well. Try www.acufinder.com
