My friend has been dealing with various symptoms over the last year and a half. Her doctor is treating the symptoms, but not addressing that they may be caused by a much bigger issue. Let me preface this list of symptoms by saying that this women has little or no reaction to medications, anesthesia, and alcohol. In a routine surgery years ago, the anesthesiologist had to give her three times what he would normally give a woman her size to put her under.

She has:

severe dry eyes
sensitivity to light
severe dry skin (despite heavy lotion use and drinking massive amounts of water)
fatigue (usually a very high-energy person)
moderate abdominal pain
abdominal bloating
hair loss and thinning

Both of these symptoms are very recent and only last a short time, usually in the mid-afternoon:

racing heart
