I'm a 30 year old female. Over the past couple of years I have been getting sicker and sicker. I have been told I have SVT's with my heart. For no apparent reason, my heart will start to beat very rapidly almost reaching 160 beats a minute. Doctor's have given me Toporol, but they can't figure out WHY my heart beats so fast with no physical exertion. I also have acid reflux so bad that I go through an entire bottle of Rolaids within about 2 -3 weeks. I feel Nauseas almost every day. I take Phenergan almost every night. I also have IBS. Pretty much anything I eat goes right through me. My stomach gurgles so loudly that my husband can hear it. I tend to go 2 or 3 days withoug having to go or am constipated but then on the 4th day, all ***l breaks loose. I will have diarrhea which will either hit me once, and cause me to be physically drained and tired, or i will have to go several times. I also am covered in sores. I have sores all over my shoulders and back, on my butt and on my legs. They seem to come up as pimples and become a sore. I also have panic attacks, because I'm afraid of throwing up. I think part of the anxiety causes me to pick at the sores at night while i'm sleeping. I have headaches regularly. Now, for the past 4 months, i have had sinus issues. Pressures around my eyes and nose. Wake up with a stuffy nose. constant post nasal drip adn a dry cough. anitibiotics did nothing. Whats funny is a woman from work has exactly the same thing, minus the sores. Its not enviromental, as this has been going on since before i began working at my current job, and we have moved into a new apartment. Doctors keep prescribing medications and diagonsing each symptom but no one seems to looks at the big picture. I feel my doctors hear "panic attack" and automatically write me off. yes I panic..about thowing up...I'm not in panicking..i just want to know whats wrong. Sometimes I wish I WOULD have cancer or something horrible wrong..at least i know what I'm feeling is real and that I'm not crazy. I've changed my diet a few times, with no changes. any comments would be greatly appreciated.
