The number of symptoms I've been suffering from has recently increased. From the frightening chest pain (varying in intensity though usually an ache, moves around my upper chest area) to a mild nausea after eating, I'm hoping to get a clear diagnosis that is treatable immediately. My symptoms are on-and-off, and though many are triggered by vigorous physical activity, they usually appear seemingly randomly. I just came out of physical therapy for my knee (it was diagnosed first as having chondromalacia patellae, then a grinding of the kneecap) though I'm still in pain by it. I feel muscle soreness in other regions as well and easily pull muscles.
A few years back, I was diagnosed with asthma. I also have been having reoccurring headaches when I didn't used to have any whatsoever. The final, odd (and perhaps not related) symptom is that I have blotchy hands that turn purple or blue when I'm in the cold, or under extreme pressure. They're typically colder than my other extremities and take longer to warm up, so I'm guessing I have poor circulation there.
I'm hoping for a diagnosis that will be treatable and eliminate the majority of my annoying symptoms. Thanks for reading.
