I'm tired of making doctors focus, and getting worse

I don't even know how to begin; on June of this year my son's friend came from South Africa, and like magic, and starting with my son, almost every body got mononucleosis. My daughter got it (all adults), and I got it (in my fifties), but my symptoms were worse than anybodies. My symptoms included tachycardia, severe weakness, and weird pain in the throat, nodules, that made talking and moving the mouth very uncomfortable. I got better for almost a month, then I got palpitations again, like a fluttery sensation on the chest area, and a weird pain around the neck from ear to ear; I got in the internet and every symptom I had was described as subacute thyroiditis, which sometimes is caused from the virus of the mono. I had thyroid problems already (hypo), and when I had lab work done, my thyroid was really high (very hypo), and my liver counts really high also (caused by the mono). Now, a few weeks ago, I got a terrible vertigo sensation that lasted more than a week, and the same old palpitations and scary weakness, not even energy to talk normally. Then I went to an endocrinologist, and only thing that has done is give me a different thyroid pill (levoxyl), and when the palpitations started again, told me over the phone to cut the pill in half. The vertigo is gone but I've had three days of weird misterious sensations (I wouldn't call it pain, is less than that), fluttery around the chest, palpitations, and plain weird weakness, like "I'm sick", kind of sensation, plus awareness of the area under my jaw, like in the salivary glands or something. The thing is, one doctor refers to another, I know I have to look for information and do more tests. I knew I had been healthy for too long. Something had to happen to me right?:( Otherwise, I eat super healthy, take vitamins, exercise every day, don't (ever) drink or smoke, or party hard, or do anything else too hard, and try to be very positive. Also, nobody has had any kind of cancer in my family. I just know I feel miserable right now. Anybody has any idea what could be going on?

Hi Mamas, http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=121756#post121756 You might find it helpful to go look at the list of symptoms of b12 deficiency. You can have funtional b12 deficiencies even if you take some kinds of b12 every day or have had "normal" test results. A lot of your symptoms correspond with b12 deficiency symptoms. Come on over and read from the tail end towards the front. See what we are doing and what works for people.
