Hi there. First I want to say thank God for these forums at wrongdiagnosis.com. They have helped me so much!!!!!

Here are some of the symptoms I have. Some I have had for years and
some I have had for months:

Migraines, menorrhagia (heavy periods), major, constant fatigue, tachycardia (I have 2 take cardiazam for it), periods of bradycardia, weight gain (I was always super thin all of my life until three years ago.), rare spells of complete weakness-feeling like I am going to die (My BP goes sky high, my HR goes high, and I shake badly.), I am thirsty all of the time-I probably drink over 2 gallons of water a day!, and really bad gas pains all the time up till very recently.

Now that you know my laundry list of complaints, I have a question.

I have been breathing down my MD's neck to figure out what is wrong with me. Anyway, one of the tests that the MD ordered was a "eGFR".
The result was: 77.1. Is this something to be concerned about???

I am really trying to tackle these health problems and make it "better" not just for me but my family too.

I have just started a gluten free diet and and am seeing results from this. Now, I gotta take care of the rest of the problems. I also had other abnormal results of blood tests. I can relay these to you if needed.

Thanks so much in advance for answering my question(s) and God Bless!
J.
