I have several problems and have no idea which ones are linked, if any, to one another. I have been writing off most of the pain to just 'getting older', but there have been things more recently that I can't just dismiss.
First of all, I have a bulging disc in my lower back, so I know most of the lower body pain is related to that.
-My lower back hurts constantly (disc)
-My left leg stays weak, mainly in my left hip and knee, but pretty much all the way down.
-Walking increases the pain and weakness and causes numbness in my left foot.
-I have varicose veins in both legs, with my right being about 3 times as bad as my left.
-The back of my right leg hurts constantly directly behind my knee, spreading about 6 inches up and down from there.
-Most of my joints hurt. Some constantly, some with activity. All of my digits, fingers and toes, both ankles, both knees, left hip and right shoulder.
-I feel a little short of breath at times, even when not exerting myself.
-I feel like my heart 'flutters' (for lack of a better word) on occasion, maybe about twice a week.I have chest pains about as often as the flutters, but they don't last more than 30 seconds at a time.
-I get a sharp, stabbing pain in the back of my head seldomly, but sharp enough to stop me in my tracks if walking. It only lasts about 5 to 10 seconds.
-When I work out, my head feels like it is filling up with fluid, causing me to become light headed. If I lean forward and rest a minute, it will go away.
-I have swollen tonsils, the right much larger than the left, but absolutely no pain.
-I have a constant pain in my lower left side, just above the hip, more to the back, and another about 4 or 5 inches higher on the same side, also toward the back.
-I have eye floaters, about 2 dozen. This I've had an eye doctor look at and was informed without other symptoms (light flashes, stationary spots, etc.) they were pretty much harmless and should go away in about a year or so.
All of these symptoms I have had for several months, and some as long as 3 years, and all of them I kept writing off as nothing or age creeping in, etc. until the last symptom popped up about 5 weeks ago.
While urinating, towards the end of the stream, my urine turned white. Solid white, like I was urinating milk. I know it wasn't milk because I'm not a big milk drinker. This has only happened 3 times in 5 weeks, but it is something I can definitely say isn't normal.
I am a 42 year old male with no real history other than having my gall bladder removed 9 years ago.
