I am a 34 year old female with a range of symptoms I don't know if they are even related. Mainly a vertigo issue - that I have been diagnosed that my eye muslces have weakened or deteriated and are not able to converge or focus close up not allowing me to align things vertically - so when I try to read it makes me dizzy, nauceaus. I also can't have any caffiene or stimulant or I get the same dizzy nauzia and my head hurts most of the time with these symptoms. I have hypoglycemia, but this and my other symptoms were lessened with magnesium ( I am at 750 mg day). I am tired a lot, gaining weight for no reason, have to urinate all of the time - always thirsty - drink lots of water - but still thirsty? Sometimes when they take my blood it is like molases and takes forever - sometimes it seems normal. My periods have been clotty and not normal for over a year. Most of my symptoms have been for over a year but become progressive and worse in the last couple of months. My doctor has had no suggestions and all of his blood work has come up with nothing. My ENT said his guess would be metabolic or hormonal. My doctor has pretty much said I don't know? I don't know what is causing all of this - and it seems to be getting worse everyday. :confused: Do I need a different primary or just a specialist? I love my doctor but he seems clueless :rolleyes:

  • hi i am also dealing with some of the same symptoms as you and some different but the common factor is i am also not having luck with the doctors,they seem to be able to not answer any of my questions. i have been dealing with this for 8 years now and i am 22 .earlier i was with a specialist who thought my best option to deal with painful irregular periods was to induce menapause and i dont agree for the fact that i am not specifically diagnosed and for the past 8 yrs. docs have been treating my syptoms without diagnosis it started with the digestive system and am now working my way up the hormonal chart.i am very sorry that i do not have any answers either but at the same time i do not feel like the only one now.i am now searching for help if i find any i will certainly let you know
