body buzz or hum


  Among other symptoms I have a Buzz of Hum that is in my entire body,  
  It seems that eating makes the problem worse.  Approx 45 minutes to 1 hour
  after eating I get shorness of breath, weakness, back pains, tingling in
  hands and lips and mouth, numbness in different parts of the body.
  I started taking digestive enzymes that helped the awful buzz or hum, but
   I still have many other problems.  I am also on anxiety medication due to
  panic attacks.  I was diagnosed with reative hypoglycemia, but after
   starting the digestive enzymes this went away.  The hypoglycemia also
  seemed to get worse the more I ate.  Someone suggested Demylinating Nerves,
  also an Autonomic Dysfunction.  The suggestion was that all the blood
   pools to your stomach away from an area that is not getting enough blood
  flow causing the symptoms to worsen. Do you have any idea what this could
  be or where I should start.??? Please, The DR's I see have no idea what
  is wrong.

Dear Gail:
A variety of neurological and general medical disorders can cause symptoms like yours. Foremost among the neurological disorders are multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, and autonomic disturbances. Amongst the non-neurological causes are endocrine disturbances such as thyroid or adrenal dysfunction, or diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, infections, autoimmune disorders such as lupus or vasculitis, and numerous other causes.
It is important that your doctor perform a clinical and laboratory work-up to evaluate you for these important possibilities. Most individuals with symptoms like yours turn out not to be having any serious underlying neurological or medical problem. Rather, they either have a recognizable psychiatric problem, or else an increased perception of, or preoccupation with somatic or body signals. Although these latter problems are benign, they can be difficult treat, and can lead to considerable hardship and health care cost.
It would be a good idea to seek the help of a neurologist to rule out major neurological problems.
I hope this answers your question. Good luck!
