When I was working, two years ago I started to get severe headaches, almost a migraine, but not quite. (I know I had to deal with a lot, but I never had them before) Then I started to have chest pains, dr sent me to cardiologist, nothing was wrong with my heart. Then I had green feces, heartburn, and abdominal pain, dr sent me to specialist and was told I was fine after an endoscopy and colonoscopy, maybe I had IBS or GERD they said. Then my back started to hurt, real bad to the point I couldn't hardly move. Dr sent me for xrays and mris. Xray said spinal stenosis, MRI said everything was fine. Dr sent me to orthopedic surgeon, whom told me I was fine, gave me a prescription for Motrin (my physician had me on painkillers and anti-inflammatories which I needed to even move) and told me to go home. During all of this time I sometimes get pain in different parts of my body that comes and goes, my joints hurt off and on, I have severe headaches off and on, I'm extremely tired, I have no energy whatsoever. I opt to watch tv and sit then to move. I have gained 30 pounds so now everything is being blamed on being fat. Hello! I got fat because I can't move!! Now, when I walk - dr said walk 3 miles 3 times a week- my legs start to tingle on bottoms of feet then go numb by end of walk. I am seeing a vascular specialist whom says it's due to my back pain that has gone undiagnosed.
I also from time to time have muscle spasms that come and go anywhere and everywhere in my body including my face. I sometimes feel dizzy, lightheaded. I sometimes feel as though my blood sugar has plummeted and need to sit and eat something right away. Sometimes fatigue cripples me and I can't hardly move or think or do anything.
Please tell me someone has the same things and knows what I am suffering with.
