30 year old male.
-Chronic Depression/Fatigue (8-10) years. (and all the psychosis too.)
-Daily headaches (feel like dehydration, but I'm not).
-Physical Symptoms of Extreme Anxiety. (high heart rate, sweating, shaking hands, moderate pain just below sternum, distress).
-History of weight fluctuation, not eating.

Whatever is wrong has been wrong for as long as I can remember. I remember symptoms at age 13 or so, got more serious at 18, severe by 23, and critical at 28, medication has stabilized, but still feel the all the symptoms, some are stil progressing.

Immunglobulin E is 308.
Eosineophil 4.0 %
Amylase Serum is 100.
Otherwise the Stool O & P test was negative.
I have no allergies, nor symptoms of allergic reaction.
Other blood levels were within reasonable ranges. (CBC & CMP).
Urine test indicated bacterial dysbiosis in intestines.

Next step is to see an endocrinologist before Christmas.

Can anyone make sense of this?
Could it be lifelong parasite infection?

I never grew like most kids, and my body/bone structure is tiny compared to my family.

Are there any questions you'd suggest to ask the endocrinologist? Right now, I'm hoping to do more blood work to check Cortisol, Adrenal gland function across the board, and let him work me up and try to find something underneath it all.

Thank you!
