Neurological problems mixed with heart

I have had many symptoms but my most recent that are really concerning me are I can not remember daily events even things I did yesterday, back pain, pain in left jaw, numbness/pain in left arm, coughing up phlegm for a month, difficulty with coordination, dizzy, cannot get in deep sleep when I wake up don't feel tired or anything feels like I never fell asleep

I have had an MRI of the brain 4 months ago and an EKG, Bloodwork, and chest X-ray one month ago (before phlegm coughing)

Symptoms for past 6 months:

Pain in back left and right side
Pain in head but not headache it's little spurts  of pain in different areas
Thoughts won't make sense
Sometimes have a very difficult time communicating my thoughts, I use to be really good at socializing  and speaking to people, now I find it hard to verbalize my opinions or thoughts... Feels like a stutter but not in speech in my thoughts
Really hard remembering daily events

Hey Em53.

I suspect an underlying infectious condition, low grade, hiding in your tissues,
not showing of couse in any standard tests.
It has progressed to a systemic condition over time and it has most likely affected your nervous system presently.
I'm not surprised with your breathing difficulty.
I will elaborate more on this nin my next post, but for now i'm including some info, pertaining to breathing rates and chronic disease.(I'm still at work)

I have all of the symptoms you described. I spent a year having tons of tests done. I owe a fortune to the Mayo Clinic. Now, I'm thinking this is all caused from menopause. I recently started taking bioidentical hormone replacement. Some of my symptoms are better, but I still have really bad days. I feel as though I'm on a roller coaster.

All of the doctors kept telling me that my symptoms are not "typical" of menopause, but I'm here to tell you that there is nothing typical about menopause. I had hot flashes, sleepless nights, mood swings. That stuff was not a big deal to me. My nightmare started when I found it difficult to breath while exercising. This did not make sense because I've always been very active.  Then, the dizziness, forgetfulness, aches and pains, sinus pressure, chest pains, palpitations, etc. started.

Another reason the doctors did not think it was caused by menopause is because I'm 47. They all just assume it's going to happen in the early 50's. None of this may apply to you, but the symptoms you described sound just like what I have been going through. I read that it gets better. My worst has been going on about a year and a half, so I'm hoping things improve quickly soon. Best wishes to you. I hope you get your problems figured out.
