so i shiver a lot. when I'm not cold. my aunt used to say it was because someone was walking over my grave but I don't know why. I feel this rise up into my chest and then my whole body does a quick shake. I've realized this isn't normal but nothing about me is normal. My heart is on the wrong the wrong side, a small right lung, scholiosis due to the readjusted heart,
asthma, thyroiditis, and chronic depression, variously ADD, OCD etc. I wish there were a way to diagnose everything in one.

  • I feel for you - hang in there. At least you have some symptoms that have been diagnosed. There are many people who have all the ailments you describe and are sent home with 'no diagnosis'. They are left to conjure up hundreds of illnesses in their minds, causing unnecessary anxiety and depression, which I believe stems from being 'undiagnosed'. Personally, I feel the medical profession should not be allowed to send a patient home without a diagnosis - makes you wonder what all the studying was about! Those patients that are sent home, should be refunded as well, especially in my country where medical costs are exorbitant, even if they send you home as 'undiagnosed' - you still pay.Take care
