These are my symptoms.

I have always been very healthy and strong. 10 years ago I had a pregnancy and had diabetes and high blood pressure. I still have the blood pressure. I believe the hernia was from the fat nurse applying too much body weight on my abdomen. I have been to a bunch of doctors and specialists.

I've been diagnosed with Migraines. Nothing bad in the blood work. A rare form of hernia that happens with an accident or previous surgery (never had a previous surgery there - the nurse did it), something about the brain having deeper grooves than for my age, and a very tiny cyst on my liver.

I figured out the Raynauds via websearches.Swelling is alleviated by the shots they have given me in the past. I am taking now 2 different pills for the pain when I have a full blown attack / migraine. I take a water pill. I still have much pain everyday and swelling everyday.

No one else I've talked to has this set of symptoms and merely has migraines. It has got to be something more.

Please tell me what you think it could be. I have some suspicions but cannot pinpoint exactly which condition it is. I have had the headaches for 10 years, and the rest has evolved over that time, recently becoming debilitating.

Thank you.

1. HEADACHE
2. SWELLING - all over. Mostly in my right lower leg and my neck head and face.
3. MENSTRUAL MAKES IT WORSE
4. TINGLING, WAVES OF SENSATION which often alleviate the pain.
5. LEFT CHEST PAIN IF I LAY ON THE LEFT SIDE
6. KIDNEY AREA HERNIA RIGHT SIDE
7. CHRONIC SINUSITUS
8. DECREASED SENSITIVITY RIGHT SIDE
9. IBS chronic constipation
10.BLOATING
11.MEMORY PROBLEMS, CONCENTRATION PROBLEMS
12. MENTAL FOGGY OUT OF IT FEELINGS
13. EYES "fog up" when out in the cold
14. RAYNAUDS Syndrome - mostly in fingers even w/ small chill
15. BACK / SPINE Problem - Back "goes out" on left middle feels like a cramped muscle, recent need to crack neck and shoulders
16. FATIGUE -- exhaustion, sleepy after waking and thru entire day and can go to sleep if I sit down or close my eyes
17. Depression / Anxiety / agitation - minimal but worth mentioning
18. ITCHY SKIN ALL OVER
19.Pain. Everything aches, hurts, mostly due to the swelling.
20.. Feel like every day is a challenge to get through. If I can just feel well enough and sleep long enough to get through a shift at work, I feel accomplished. Anything else I get done is icing on the cake.

  • Hi. I have many of your same symptoms and am in the process of getting to the bottom of things now. I never had diabetes or your previous issues, so I don't know what role they could play...anyway my doctor is very suspicious of chronic fatigue syndrome, and particularly with your joint symptoms there is a condition that is often linked to cfs as it has many similar symptoms and they are often comorid. I could be totally off base here but I had to throw it out there because it sounds so much like what I am going through.Please keep me updated, i'm curious to see where this goes and I really hope you get to feeling better soon.-Sarah

  • I would have agreed with the fribromyalgia only for when I read about the swelling (agree fibro can have it but it is less common)Have you thought about CRPS/RSD? Maybe you need to see a good Neurologist or Rheumatologist who can either diagnose you or point you in a more accurate path.

  • I have all of the same symtoms you do and then some. A combination of Fibromyalgia and Hashimoto's has been diagnosed. The swelling could be due to some arthritic disorders that haven't been discovered.

  • get off the sucralose, splenda and aspartame- found in diet sodaseverything really, even in gum and children's vitamins : \read labels and do not eat this stuff anymore it is poison and it sounds like you have most of the symptomsread about them on the internet check the symptoms for each one- disregard the Industry(company who made the product) advertisements on different sites that tell you they are safe - there are enough testimonials and people who will tell you on facebook groupsyoutubeand google that they were harmed by them and know because they were where you are and stopped eating them and now are better.Trial and error, they learned what was causing them these problems- now you know too!

  • Thanks for you info re: diet. I however have read labels for years and by all accounts lead a very healthy lifestyle and yet continue to be plagued with autoimmune disorders. Has anyone information on genetics. I recently saw a neurologist and he basically said that there is nothing more I can do that my genetic make-up is the route of my medical issues.

  • If you were diagnosed with diabetes what has been done with that? What is going on with it? What sweeteners ARE you using?Headaches are usually caused by :hormonal imbalances circulatory problemsstress *sugar imbalances- hypoglycemia *structural- spinal *misalignments blood pressure concerns *I think the swelling is circulatory and misalignment may be the reason for this- I had to visit the Osteopath after giving birth to a normal 8 lb. baby. Easy delivery, so why her and not the almost 10 lb. barnyard birth I experienced which was almost two weeks late? Go figure. But the stress in my life at the time didn't help my back, sciatica either. I was amazed at how just placing fingers under me to realign me made a huge difference and there was no snapping and torture like at the chiropractor. A weekly or bi-monthly visit to an osteo was all I needed until I got stronger. I think that we need to hear about what has happened since the birth with the diabetes diagnoses too- no mention about that. The blood pressure- many things can screw around with this. Diet and Kidney disease may cause this but there are no symptoms for this so really this is not the cause for your other symptoms. You can read though about diet concerns for this here:http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3009412Now- having gone through your list of symptoms I will tell you again 12 of your 20 symptoms are dead ringers for sucralose/splenda/chlorine poisoning!These are ones I am talking about: 1. headaches 5. spleen- located in the lower left side of the body- Splenda shrinks this by 40% causing pain- http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/spleendiseases.html sucralose makes the spleen incessantly hurt; people say that it feels like a fist is there giving them pain. 6. kidney - sucralose enlarges liver and kidneys; see more on kidneys http://www.medicinenet.com/kidney_failure/article.htm#tocb 10. sucralose bloats 11. sucralose makes confused and memory is gone 12. sucralose keeps people in a mental fog- both 11 and 12 are poison symptoms, btw 13. watery eyes- ok in the cold EVERYONES eyes water; but blurred vision or red painful eyes are chlorine ingested or exposure (sucralose/splenda/pool chlorine ) guess 13 doesn't count.16. Fatigue! Big one for Splenda or sucralose consumers- are you sure you are not eating it- it is in a TON of products and if you are diabetic you could be comsuming the sugar free foods in the stores- read ALL labels even on stuff you buy from the health food stores: i.e. altoids, chewing gum, ice cream, vitamins, juice powders, diet products like atkins, etc... 17. DEPRESSION- this is very much a Sucralose/Splenda symptom18. itchy skin..are there red rashes? welts? this one is also a big one for sucralose consumers!19. Pain EVERYWHERE... to the touch? This is a big one for sucralose consumers too. 20. not being able or even wanting to do daily chores, habits, tasks as simple as move? This is a huge sucralose symptom. I don't know but it sure sounds like you are eating sucralose!Sucralose because it hurts the thymus and spleen and liver and kidney may have everything to do with your blood pressure, swelling, and weird sensitivities- tingling, chills, circulatory issues. Try fasting for a few days where you eat nothing and see what is happening there. Drink water only and it should be filtered or distilled. No tap water or bottled water. Filtered and distilled will have no or less chlorine(poison). Bottled water goes bad and who knows what toxic dump the "spring" may be next to. It is impossible to know unless you go there and see if there are no superfund sites within 10 miles. Some of the most rural areas can be some of the most toxic places!Dispense of the superfluous symptoms like watery eyes and things that you could have had previous to the baby. Focus on the big ones and see if you can eliminate any of those on your list during the fast. Drink lots of water and pee as much as possible. Flush the system. Then if you eliminate some symptoms make a new list with whatever is left. BTW what meds are you on? What are the side effects for those meds? Put the med next to the side effect symptom you are experiencing so it doesn't confuse the process of elimination, cause those symptoms wont go until you stop taking the pill that is causing it. Whe you start eating do one food at a time. Start with something you have always eaten while you were well. As you go adding foods, one a week, watch your body and see if you get any of the symptoms back. Do this diligently so you can detect what is making you ill. If you are taking loads of pills, this is not good for your liver/kidneys either. See which ones you can get off of, doctors ( sorry to docs reading this) will prescribe something for anything you tell them is an issue. If you come with a laundry list of issues you will leave with a laundry list of pills- they are not all absolutely neccessary; ask which ones you can remove and say that you refuse to take more than 1 or 2 a day.Do NOT eat out while you are trying to figure out your issues. And do not drink anything other than filtered or distilled water. No sodas, no alchohol, no tap water, no bottled water!

I have had migraines for five years now, the doctors say it is "the menopause" i say its because I smoke, I have given up a few times and never experience one during that time, my sinus problem disappears as well, I have an instant pill when one starts I would pay £50 for one if I ever ran out.For 18 months I was prescribed amitriptaline and i became like you always tired no energy no concentration, always looking on the dark side, but slept like a log.I also lost my sense of humour.I then went on a two week holiday and ran out of these when i came home, I was then too busy at work and couldnt get time off to get some from the doctors or forgot to order repeat prescription. I put on loads of weight and was always feeling "puffy" At first I noticed I was able to work longer without feeling too tired and sleepy but put that down to the fact Id just had a nice break, then as the days went on I noticed I was being more and more cheerful and my appetite decreased, this was about 4 weeks of not being on the amitriptaline, it wasnt until I read about them that they are used to treat depression, I havent had any since first week in july and now feel fantastic with out them.I am now going to try quit smoking again, this time for good.

This product can be found in sodas, diet foods and many many other products here in the USA but I bet there too they have made their way into your foods. Check and read your labels if you see sucraloseSplendaEqualAspartameNutrasweetany other artificial sweetener except Saccharin(strangely that was the one everyone was afraid of but it must have been a rumor because it never made anyone sick and there is no evidence of it ever having made anyone sick)Today with the Wall Street- certain foods- esp. due to fads or health issues like increased percentages of diabetics- are a huge $$ maker- so there is a lot of incorrect information out there about many of them- the Corporations are fighting for the public so study everything you put into your body and be leery of Wiki because I tried to edit it several times and up-date a product because of manufacturer inserts that were never advertised but was never allowed and then when I saw that the committee suggested the entry be up-dated to be brought up to current facts I found out that other people had tried to do the same thing but none the less the product was still saying it was safe- so WIKI is still unreliable. For sweeteners try Agave A.K.A.- Blue Agave (awesome syrup from the Tequila cactus- it is herbal and delicious and I used it on pancakes, etc... or Stevia. If the sweeteners were never the issue than let me know. And no one got a vaccine recently, right? Or before the trouble started?

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • 1. Get your vitamin D level tested. Can use www.grassrootshealth.org if your doc won't do it. Keep 25(OH)D levels above 50.2. Use LEAP testing (Signet Diagnostics) to test for food allergies or find an integrative medicine doc in your area that uses a evidence-based method to test for food allergies. Your symptoms are HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS for food allergies.3. Are you taking omega-3 fatty acid supplements? Krill oil or fish oil would probably help... it sounds like you're having a total body inflammatory response.Good luck.

  • I am not sure about anyone else here but I can vouch for the damage artificial sweetners can cause. When I was 17 I suddenly started drinking Diet Soda and within the Diet Soda was Aspartame... Enemy number one for me. It started slowly, headaches, blurry vision and nothing really big but after a few months it got horribly bad. I started having massive dizzy spells and was in bed for a week at a time, I did everything I could but nothing made them go away, they always returned.I had no idea what was causing them and I went to the Doctor but after several appointments and all test results coming back perfect the Doctors told me it was either Vertigo or a tumor in my brain.When they wanted me to go through a CT Scan I decided to forego the hospitals and do some online research instead, for a couple reasons...one because if I was dying I didn't really wanna know and two because they kinda started thinking I was crazy or dying! The list of symptoms was vast, as I said headaches, blurry vision, horrible dizzy spells, fatigue, sleep disturbances, mood swings, irritability, so on and so forth. After some online research I discovered that Aspartame poisoning can cause a lot of these symptoms and swore off the stuff. After 6 months off and I mean COMPLETELY off! My body finally started to heal itself but I did not do any detox. After one year off I was almost totally better and by 21 I was even able to lay flat without tons of pillows under my head, the pillows were to prevent dizzy spells because if I was by chance feeling normal...laying flat or fast motions, spinning of any sort would bring one on instantly. The aspartame affected my sinuses and I was constantly on allergy medicine as it seemed to ease some of the symptoms, I also had problems with ringing ears and watching TV or video games. I had thought earlier this year that perhaps it was all just a mistake or misunderstanding and I tested the theory by chewing a piece of sugar free Elixer Flavored 5ive Gum, of course containing aspartame.Within five minutes of chewing it a horrible headache came on, I lost all my balance, I had no depth perception, could no longer walk a straight line and speech started slurring. People had thought I was drunk though all I had was a piece of gum! That was another thing I suffered from before I removed the Aspartame, I had depth perception problems, balance problems and things of that nature. Most recently in June of this year I was unknowingly consuming Sucralose and Acesulfame-K from some flavored bottled water my sister brought home. I began getting very sick from those as well and I now know I must be even more careful in my label reading and I must avoid ALL sugar substitutes, even Splenda was giving me reactions but I have never used Stevia or that Cactus sweetner the other mentioned, I guess I am just too afraid of all sugar substitutes now. Over the years I had accidentally consumed some bits of Aspartame, as in the case of Thanksgiving '07 my Grandmother made these popsickles with sugar free pudding and sadly I ate one and that made me sick too but if you accidentally consume some it can take a week or two to recover from the small bit and a year or more to recover from the poisoning itself. I also am really good friends with a lady named Brandi and she suffered similar things, when I told her my experiences she got off the sugar substitutes instantly, she'd been using them quite faithfully because she is diabetic and within two months of being completely clean from those toxic substances...she was noticing several improvements. Good luck with everything!Samantha

  • It sounds like you could have a number of problems. I do not think that there is one thing causing all your problems. I would agree sounds like you may have chronic fatigue syndrome. This is likely being brought on by all your other symptoms. I would keep looking to a specialist and on line to get this taken care of. I know all the test can get old but that is the only way you can find out what it is.

Good luck with everything!SamanthaSamantha- I am so grateful to you for your testimony and if you could share this with all the people you see eating this garbage it would do the WORLD a lot of good- I made a few videos on poisons in our food chain and the Vaccine industry. I have to say- "they" are asleep at the wheel because it is everywhere. You are on a terrific start to health- as most health problems is a matter of what we are eating and what we have yet to eat. For example- now that you are OFF the Aspartame and Sucralose ( or Equal and Splenda, and the host of other names these products fall under- and do not think that because you see sugar in the label you are good to go because now where there is Sugar there still may be Sucralose, as it is known to be HIGHLY addictive )Start getting off the other "foods" that are also poison- 1. Hydrogenated oils- this is literally plastic and allows food to be on the shelves for MONTHS- to years. You will notice after you stay away from ANYthing with Hydrogenated oils that you can no longer stomach "dead" food- or fake food. 2. POLYSORBATE 80, 60 , etc...- these are typically found in detergents and are also VERY dangerous. (it is also found in vaccines!)This was deemed by WHO ( world health organization) as not to be consumed by humans! -it is in your cake icing, ice creams, etc...3. GMO foods- (soy products and corn products) these plants are made with herbicide or insecticide! and it literally ruptures the stomachs of the insects that eat it. It also kills animals that eat it. They are sick first then die. (except rats who are hardier and fewer die but they still get sick. )We develop allergies and asthma - from GMO foods- What DO you eat then- fresh foods from your local farms. Ripe fruits and vegetables ( juice carrots, beets, celery, fruits)Juice and mix 5-7 large carrots and 2-3 apples and drink. BAKE FRESH foods at home, grind your own flour from seed and bake it - it will be nourishing and SO delicious. Eat fresh avocados, home made hummus from garbanzo, grind your own peanut butter at whole foods, eat Greek yogurt with bifidus and acidifilus ( yogurt without these cultures is NOT yogurt but silly counterfeit puddings)also AVOID-FLU shots ( they give you aluminum doses and if taken yearly soon you will have Alzheimers!)Gardasil VACCINE- thousands homebound, some mentally retarded and 84+ dead from this vaccine- neurological, infertility, gynochological, arthritis, goastrointestinal issues abound thanks to this poison cocktail.OTCs- all have sucralose sweetening- Johnson and Johnson products definitely have them because they OWN sucralose ( I boycott J&J)I also boycott any company that puts aspartame, or Sucralose in their products- PEDIALYTE for babies by ABBOT has both ASPARTAME AND SUCRALOSE - can you imagine ????discussions galore on http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/group.php?gid=60846318544of the same and of what TO eat and the vitamin and mineral content and other good things to know about! learn for yourself and then SHARE with others- you could be making important differences in the lives of millions !

  • You are totally right here. I am running from them, like a mouse is running from a cat. :) Sort of speaking. I was wondering if you had any bad experience with them? I read on a some forum that people had big problems from them...Since you want to see the negative experiences (besides Samantha's ) I invite you to the glarstout youtube channel and to view these two videos where you can hear from the many people I found who have suffered. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3giLdh25H8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blYSWkq6seQ&feature=relatedthe video is a comparison between Sucralose and chlorine- because it has chlorine in it - a KNOWN poison. It also says MANY things are cleaned with cleaned daily with chlorine and this contributes to the chlorine in our environment- thus poison. We could use more soap and less BLEACH for example when we clean because when we KILL bacteria we are also harming ourselves in the process but we can move bacteria AWAY and this does nothing to harm ourselves and we don't have the bacteria either- thus the better thing to do then to KILL bacteria all the time EVERYWHERE! IF you still want to KILL bacteria then go green - BLEACH is not green. Hydrogen Peroxide is a better bleach - not harmful. (don't drink it, of course!) It is substance found in nature. Chlorine is also - found in foods naturally but that is not toxic- it becomes toxic when we "create" chlorine- just like natural SEA salt is not toxic but when WE make salt it is (table salt). Also you can use Clove to kill bacteria and Oregano and Thyme. There are many natural ways to do things and those ways help our immune systems to GROW strong- vs. the lab things that weaken our immune systems, like antibiotics.www.youRno1.org you will find interesting natural health alternatives there. OTCs and PXs tend to make people sick defeating the whole purpose of taking them- BTW- Stevia and Agave from the Tequila Cactus are healthful- Stevia has 0 Glycemic index and is medicinal- balances the blood sugar and stimulates the pancreas.Agave is about 25-35 glycemic index ( then comes honey, then sugar)It is absorbed by the body SLOWLY and it also is delicious! Use it instead of pancake syrup. Stevia is used by the drop as it is super potent. Agave is baked like honey- also lower the liquid content when using it to bake with. Use less than using sugar ( 3/4 cup vs. 1 cup sugar but look this up on google to be sure)Eat smart not CHEAP- what the grocer does not get the Dr. gets :(Bon Apetite!
