hi i am new to this sight. i have been reading this sight for over a year now and i just had to get in on it. i am a 33 year old female. i was always healthy and energetic and a happy go lucky gal. it all started back in october of 05. i was sleeping and awoke to nausea,dizziness, shakiness, extremely high blood pressure for me. (189/118) , my head and arms were numb, and i felt really flushed. i was in and out of emergency room for 1 week. Continued to have all these symptoms the entire time. They just put me on nausea pills and sent me on my way. finally, they put me in the hospital, for 1 day , ran some tests and nothing. Put me on a blood pressure pill, diagnosed me with anxiety, high blood pressure, high cholestrol. which i take medication for all. since i have gotten out of hospital i am experiencing alot of different symptoms. my abdomen is swollen and i look like i am 6 months pregnant, i put on 35lbs. in 2 1/2 months. i was constipated and they sent me a gastroentorologist. said i had ibs. put me on pills. did a colonoscopy and endoscopy and found a esophagus ulcer. put me on more medication. also nausea medication. i was getting muscle aches and pains, sent to a rhematologist, ran tests and my ana came back positive, ran more tests and said they don't know why it is positive.some people just live with a positive ana. put me on muscle relaxers and pain medication. my glucose test came back low 52 and sent me to an endorcornologist , ran tests said i was hypoglycemia. also that i had pcos. since then my sugar goes up and down. when it goes low i get the symptoms bad. my gynocologist said yep pcos. mean while i am nausea at least 1 time a day, always tired, lower back pain constantly, muscle aches all the time, abdomenal tenderness(navel and up) ,vomiting,and living with this swollen abdomen. they did a ca125 test and it was normal. i am so clueless,and i am ready to just deal with my symptoms. it is just so hard considering healthy and boom it wakes you up from your sleep and your never the same. and the doctors just see you in afew months and nothing. i just wanna be normal cuz i have 2 boys that need me. sorry so long.
