So all my life I have been very thin and Im a tall person (5 foot 8) who has long arms and legs so it makes me look even thinner. I cant seem to put on weight or keep it on for long. I would like to but cant. Ever since I was a teenager I started getting very dizzy and blacking out (cant see) when I stood up. Sometimes its worse times than others... my body gets all tingly. I went to the docter and he just said dont stand up so fast!!! Well it started to get abit worse so I went back a couple years later and they did tests and everything came back normal. I thought foresure I had aenimia or something. I continued to have the same symptoms down the road a couple more years... but I started getting recurring yeast infections so I foresure I had diabetes or something? They ran blood tests and it came back normal. Recently I have started feeling worse..... very dizzy feeling, faintness, blacking out, my balance is all out of wack. I have trouble remembering stuff, I feel confused alot of the time and find it very hard to concentrate. I really feel SO tired all the time even when I have had sufficient sleep, I feel especially tired in the mornings and feel zombielike... cant concentrate etc. My body just feels so tired to do anything. I work at home so I dont really go out unless its for groceries and stuff. I feel nauseous in the mornings as well. I have bad circulation I think and now Im noticing that my hands and feet go somewhat numb abit. Im always hungry... and thirsty.... I crave alot of sugar.... and drink alot of pop. And also I started getting the yeast infections again, I've had 2 this month :( I dont want to go to the same docter because he doesnt seem to be of much help but where I live.... no docters are taking new patients so I will have to go to a walk in clinic docter. I dont know wut it is that is causing this stuff but its very frustrating because I dont feel ok. I feel as if theres something seriously wrong.

I do have a history of depression but Im not on any meds for it.

Anybody else have the same thing or know someone who does?

  • Have a look into Marfan Syndrome. It is mainly characterized by tallness, thinness and long bones. This often comes with heart issues which could be responsible for lack of blood being pumped to the brain during your pass out moments.
