Hi, I'm 20 years old 5'11" and 151lbs. I eat pretty healthy, I don't eat fast food or drink soda. I don't smoke. I rarely drink, and I don't do any drugs.
I've been experiencing a lot of random symptoms for awhile now.(Almost two years for some of them) It's not too bad to be honest its just really really annoying now.


-Pretty constant mild dizziness

-Random bursts of severe dizziness

-Shortness of breath

-Chest pains(?) It's not really painful it almost feels like it's tight and/or inflamed
(Kinda hard to describe)

-Random sharp pains in certain distinct spots, Bottom right of my back right below the ribs and in the back left of my head.

-Pressure on the top of my nose (?sinuses) and the back of my eyes.

-Weak left arm and a little in the right arm sometimes.

-Random pains on the bottom of my wrists and finger joints sometimes random fingers randomly tingle. Mainly in my left hand. Rare in my right.

-I've also had something wrong with my left ear awhile back where sound would cut out, it would ring heavily then after 30s to 1m the ringing would go away and I would be able to hear just fine.
That doesn't happen anymore but I've noticed when I walk down stair I get this weird clicking sound in my left ear.

I know that's a lot lol, but I just named of everything that's been pretty consistent over the past 1 1/2 - 2 years.
Ive seen like 6 doctors, 5 from a quick care type place and one ear nose and throat doctor. They've all either said it was something random(all different diagnosis) ,didn't know what it was, or said it was pretty much nothing. If it was nothing I wouldn't feel like this... -_-

I just wanted to see if anyone on here knew what this might be.
(I thought it might be some kind of arthritis or something)
If its nothing serious, and can't develop into anything serious then I don't have a problem just living with it.
I just want to know whats going on with me.
Thanks a lot.

  • I was reading your symptoms and I was very curious to see if you had found out anything additional about them.I am 39 years old and have a very similar lifestyle to yours, but I smoke. I have been having those same symptoms for about 6 months now! Additional symptoms I have had are skin lesions on my shins (which have healed and now are scars) and sometimes I have word-finding difficulties and confusion.Tests run by my doctor have turned up nothing! My symptoms aren't as severe anymore, but I still do get them occasionally.

  • I haven't really found out anything so far. I've been reading up on EHS that Blaze posted a little bit ago...I have a lot of those symptoms listed, but the symptoms are on such a broad spectrum that it makes it difficult to accept.(My symptoms are also on a pretty broad spectrum too :()I wish I had something a bit more concrete. (If I even have it)I'm around computers a lot so I cut down my computer usage by almost 1/2, and I'm trying to stay away from anything that would put off any sort of magnetic/electric field, if at all possible.To be honest I feel a lot better when I do get away from electronics, but the instant recovery could be in my head. (Who knows..)My symptoms also come and go. They're present most of the time. Randomly they'll go away, but they'll also flare up sometimes and get pretty bad.I really don't mind living with it as long as it's not life threatening, or mildly to severely crippling. It's just really annoying, and people shouldn't have to go through the day feeling like this.I gave up on seeing any quick care doctors for now. If my symptoms get really bad I'm going to see a doctor in a hospital and see what they can do for me. (even though my insurance won't cover it :()
