I am new to this board, I am a 29 year old female, my problems all started about 3 years ago..
I was sitting on the couch with the family that night, I felt a tingling sensation in my head, (was not painful just weird) I have always been pretty healthy with a cold now and again. The next day I felt terrible, all I did for a week straight was sleep. I went to the Dr. was told it was stress. I was put on Celexa, I seemed to be getting better or so I thought...
I got pregnant, stopped all the meds and felt better...then at 6 months the symptoms returned, my OB put me back on Celexa, very hesitant to take it because of the baby, I waited for weeks before I took it. I had to I felt so bad.
So, I had my daughter thought everything was fine..
I walked around for days feeling like I was going to pass out, I started my meds again, thought It was "stress". I had finally had it and went to the ER, to my surprise they kept me they said that I had a bladder infection and a low heart rate, my resting heart rate was 43 too low for someone my age that is not athletic. I had soooo many blood test done, NOTHING Post-Partem Bradycardia, nutrition def, dehydrated, bladder infection. I recieved a B-12 shot at the hospital, vitamins and antibiotics. I did feel a little better when I left the hospital. 2 days at home and all the symptoms return..here is the list..
low Bp..then it jumps up pretty fast (normal)
Heart rate seems to be fine now, at 65.
Feel like I am on fire on the inside of my body, no fever.
Sick at my stomach, no vomiting.
I feel dizzy and like i am in a dream sometimes (I'm not crazy)
Trouble remembering things, not just what did I do with my keys?
Very weak in general, I cannot go and do the thing I used to, I can walk around and shop about 30 minutes before I have to go and sit, for feeling like i am going to faint.
Pain in my back and neck
Burning eyes (constant)
Pressure in my head that NEVER goes away.
Skin changes, mainly in my hands they are very wrinkled and dry.even with plenty of lotions, and water I drink 5 glasses a day.
(I am on a multivitamin plus iron and B-12 liquid, Dr. will not give me another shot until one more test comes back, the acid test? (cant remember the name right now)
I have been tested for Lupus, and all auto immune deseases, all negative. I dread every day because of the way I feel, I have a 4 month old, 10 and 12 year old that need me. I am not DEPRESSED.
Please if you feel the way I do and have a diagnosis, please let me know!!!
I go see a NEURO next week. I have never had an MRI or CAT.
