I am a 5'7" 186lb 20 year old female and I have been having quite a few strange symptoms for quite a few months now. I neglected going to a doctor first because of lack of insurance, then because I didn't want to be a hypochondriac since the symptoms come and go. My medical history:
-Appendectomy during teens
-Mononucleosis in second year of college (went undiagnosed for about 3 months, I was in and out of the emergency room three times before a wonderful Doctor finally thought to test me for it)
-Depression and anxiety (never medicated, better through therapy, yoga, meditation, and reiki)
-Minor eating disorder in late high school (Was consuming less than 600 calories a day for 6-8months.)
-Memory problems (Mother had me taking Ginko-biloba when I was in middle-high school)
My current symptoms:
-Severe intolerance for dairy products (diarrhea, bloating, severe stomache pain)
-Abdominal pain, bloating and discomfort after eating/drinking: Coffee, sweets, spicy foods.
-**Recent: Immediate loss of appetite after only a couple bites ("full feeling").
-**Recent: Blue-ish fingernails near nail bed, intolerance for cold (Very odd for me, I have always been a warm person, most comfortable in 60 degree temp, now I feel cold almost all the time)
-Dizzyness, light headed, anxious/moody when i don't eat at the same time every day or miss a meal.
-Inconsistent periods (helped since I started on birth control)
-Left eyelid twitches/spasms (May be caused by wrong perscription, going to get new glasses wednesday)
-Headaches (May be caused by above mentioned wrong perscription)
-Chest pains (No real consistent side, always sharp, stabbing pain in upper chest either directly left or right of sternum)
-Joint fatigue and pain (in hips, knees, and hands.)
-Back pain, focused in middle of back or upper back between shoulders.
-Semi-constant feeling of nausea or stomache/abdominal discomfort.
-Diarrhea or nausea when under stress.
-Tingly, "itchy-crawly" feeling under skin, feels like in my bones, in my chest, shoulders, throat and lower jaw.
-Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
I know it is a lot to wade through, thank you to anyone who responds. I went in to a medical clinic yesterday, all basic bloodwork and urinalysis came back normal, still waiting for results for Thyroid tests. I will be scheduling an appointment with an Osteopathic Physician on Monday, but thought I would try here as well since I have been in and out of the hospital rather frequently and nothing has been detirmined.
