I am going to try to make this short and easy to understand.... and I do appreciate any help greatly:)

I swore I was having a stroke or something to that effect this past weekend.....

Known facts about me:
Female, 27 years old, smoker, PCOS, 2 pregnancies both resulting in live births no miscarriages, gallbladder removal, past eye surgery, ovarian cysts, multiple piercing’s and tattoo’s

Common Symptoms I have had for a year or more:
pelvic pain, irregular/missed or even absent periods for up to 24 months at a time, frequent back and hip pain, overweight mid body (shoulders down to waist)

Symptoms that have joined in within the past three months:
Frequent abscesses on breasts, butt, thighs, stomach and southern female region, frequent headaches, alternation between sinus drainage and plugged up feeling, frequent yeast infections (First ever time having yeast infections), Frequent indigestion, occasional fevers, cold feet and hands

Symptoms that have joined in within the past week:
Dizziness, numb tingling feeling all over, trouble speaking or understanding, memory difficulties, blurred vision, migraine, neck-ache, light headed, everything including my tongue tastes like metal, muscles twitch constantly a finger will move, arm, eyebrow, leg, etc...
Slight fever, my eyes have pressure behind them. Dark circles around my eyes, I can feel my heart beat all over, I'm cold but I feel warm, jaw area hurts because I have to actually work to hold it shut, shaking, it feel like I'm floating but my skin is so heavy its keeping me down. And hand eye coordination is out the window at this point. Not to mention four more abscesses have showed up.

I am now feeling a little better after sleeping nearly two days straight :eek: but still have a slight headache, neck-ache, very dehydrated (urinating only once in two days), fatigue, minor eye pressure yet still having dark circles, abscesses are going away after taking a antibiotic, things still taste strange, and am having difficulty remembering certain things that have happened in the last five days. My hands and feet still tingle at times and are all the time cold.

The only thing I can come up with from a search is symptoms of Diabetes...

Has anyone every felt like this or been diagnosed with anything after having these symptoms?

I do believe the frequent and numerous abscesses are a main key/clue to what is going on with me....:(

  • The abscesses might be because you have a weakened immune system for some reason. You should look into candida overgrowth, especially as you have been taking antibiotics and have been troubled by yeast infections.

  • Sorry to hear you're having such problems, I've an underactive thyroid some of your symptoms sounded similar have you had a thyroid test? though it could be an auto immune problem - I also have - happy days! the body attacking itself causes all sorts of problems, headaches, dizziness, sinus, confusion, depression, thrush and infection etc etc I was first diagnoised with post viral fatigue bordering on ME - auto immune problems are never easy because doctors don't know enough about them. There is still an awful lot of ignorance around ME, post viral and auto immune but don't give up.
