I am 35 years old male. For the last 15 years I have been to countless doctors who dont really seem to be interested in determining the cause of my problem, other to send me away for rest. I have almost lost hope of finding a solution, but maybe someone reading this can identify these symptoms and end my suffering in silence. I suffer with noticable fluctuation in concentration and irritability in mood. I can alost feel my mental state change. This can be accompanied by physical fatigue and increased anxiety. Digestion also seems to be a problem, with indigestion and reflux of foods. Bowel movements are slow along with constipation. The noticable increase in anxiety is felt with mild twitching of nerves, especially at night in legs and feet. Excessive sweating leaves me soaked in bed.

I hope someone will take the time to consider this and maybe point me in the right direction. I know this is not in my head, but of the considerable fluctuation in symptoms from normal to abnormal. Is this a problem with digestion and absorbtion? Somehow I feel the symptoms are connected with my stomach. I am open to suggestions.

Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.
