I am 39 years old and have not been able to find what is wrong I have been having these symptoms for several months. Just in the past month and half has it gotten worse. Thought that they found the problem after test and waiting but found out today that not what they thought. It started out has getting lightheaded, dizzy at work. I was working nights, lifting heavy boxes, working alot. So I just thought that I has been over doing it. The symptoms became worse one night that I had to go home. My heart was racing and the dizziness was worse. Found out that I was having a panic attack when this started happening. But after getting the panic attack under control the other symptoms where still there. I also was loosing weight, lossing hair, diarreha, the rapid heart rate and dizzeness. Going to my doctor he found my thryoid felt "full". Had test run, they found a nodule and a few clusters. Went to a ent which had a byopsy done on my nodule. Today I found out the nodule is fine and my blood work I had done showed my T levels are fine. Basically was told have no idea. Go back to my regular doctor. I also had a stress test that was done and that was normal. I feel like I am back to the start. I am frustrated because I feel I cannot live like I use to the rapid heart rate starts then the dizziness. It is not like me not to do much. I have kids home and that was enough now I feel this is taking away from them. Any advice or help I would appreciate.

  • Did your doctor tell you that you had a thyroid problem. Because you do. Go to a different doctor to treat your thyroid.

  • I AM NOT A DOCTORthere is a person on these forums that hates when I post. So I want to make sure everyone knows. I am not a doctor. The symptoms you are experiencing could be Lyme Disease and or other tick borne diseases. I am not a doctor. Racing heart and dizziness, etc. can be Babesiosis. I am not a doctor --But after 16 years of suffering from symptoms and tons of medical research, tons of doctors, tons of lab tests, I finally got help when I visited a Lyme Disease Support forum. You will be surprised if you check out www.Lymenet.org Of course, YOU MAY VERY WELL NOT HAVE LYME DISEASE. But I offer this information to you ... as I was offered this information which ended up saving my life. There are many things which can cause your symptoms. FMS is often diagnosed when it is actually Lyme. What is FMS? What is Chronic Fatigue? Even MS, Lupus and other diseases are misdiagnosed instead of Lyme. I spend years researching ... and ended up helping myself because I found information that fit my MANY sypmtoms. Yes, I will probably get BLASTED by a person in this forum who does not accept that these symptoms can be caused by Lyme or other tick borne illnesses. So get ready for it, but in the meantime, check out information about Lyme and check out the specifics of where to go to see a doctor and where to be tested. General doctors will not generally take sensitive enough testing and few of these doctors have seen the myriad of symptoms that Lyme can cause. Make your own decisions.
