I am a fifty two year old female who has had consistent symptoms for about 25 years. I have a firm diagnosis of fybromyalgia. I have had graves disease when i was forty years old. I am now hypothyroid and have developed hyperparathyroidism as well. I take 50,000 units of vitamin d for that twice a month. I developed a restrictive lung process about two years ago that shows up in lung function tests but scans are normal. I also have some gerd that is not totally controlled by protonix and that upsets the resrictive lung process. The chest pain is chronic and I notice it gets worse in hot or too cold of air. I have severe migraines that with propanolol are down to about 3 episodes a month. Which brings me to the point i am now. I have had periods of severe dizziness that will usually last a few weeks or so and then dissipate. I from time to time experience zingers as I call them that are an exasperation of the dizziness and maybe atype of humming in my head that may last for a feww seconds or I would give up, but i do not know how to give upminutes. I am in an attack of that dizziness right now and have been for @ 6 weeks. I am unable to work. It is very hard to drive and I wonder what is wrong with me . The dizziness is the type where everything around me is spinning to back and forth movements to just off balance within myself. The doctor says i have vestibular migraine and if it doesnt go away in acouple more weeks i will have a MRI. I have had a couple of brief episodes of slurred speech as well. I went to the University of Washington in Seattle and a doctor told me she thought i had mixed connective tissue disease but it was not proven in my blood. Depression has also been a problem in the past. The last episode I had I swear was physically derived. I dont know how, but I know something in my body was driving it. The pain in my legs and feet is excruciating at times. Also the tops of my arms ache and I get charlie horses in my ankles. I am so tired of explaining how I feel to doctors. They seem bored or tired of hearing it too.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
