Hello, I am a 20 year old male. Recently I've been experiencing some very strange symptoms
For the past month I've been experiencing some of the following symptoms, some are persistent and others come and go. I've currently experienced the following the last several days:
Nerve pain and tingling all over body
Deep chest pain/shortness of breath/feels like pain in lungs
Dry tongue/white mouth/tongue
Heavy fatigue (Getting gradually better than I was a few days ago.)
The last doctor I've seen only said that I may have some type of unspecified 'Viral Infection'. And all blood and urine tests have came out normal, I've also had a CT scan of my head and chest which were also normal.
I've also been diagnosed with hypochondria/anxiety by the ER SEVERAL times because they couldn't find anything extraordinarily wrong, they are swearing to me that it is anxiety and I'm not dying. I'm not believing that though. Could this all be anxiety related for absolutely no reason at all?
I really feel like I'm being misdiagnosed here, has anyone experienced something similar? Could anyone give me suggestions as to what I should do? Please help! Serious replies only please!
The tingling and groin pain don't go together. I have taken some anti depressants that cause that annoying tingling.. If you just started one, wait a couple weeks and see if that symptom goes away. Doc is right. Other symptoms could be a bad virus. If the tingling numbness does not go away, ask doc if she would consider switching to Cymbalta.
It kinda sounds like a few things together. Fibromyalgia, pinched nerves, and IBS. They all go hand in hand. If you go see a rhuematologist they can give you a sure diagnosis on the Fibro. If you have Fibro then you do have IBS. Thats one thing you can't avoid. For the sore throat, when you get run down with fibro it will cause swollen glands and or sore throat. You need to get as much rest as you can and keep your feet up if possible. White mouthcan be cause by dehydration and medication. Hope this helped.
Hello. I am also dealing with the same, even more, symptoms than yourself. I have been to the ER 4 times in 4 months, walk in clinics a few times, my GP, neurologist, cardiologist. I had a MRI, Xray, Echo cardiogram, holter monitor,blood tests for Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyaglia, Lyme,HIV, every single STD,and all came back with nothing was wrong with me except costochondritis which you dont have so dont worry, its a inflammation of the ribs to the breast bone. My symptoms started with my heart racing, and then followed with insomnia, being afraid of going far from home, fatigue, troubles swallowing, head zaps,muscle aches, bones creaking, afraid of dying and being alone. Anxiety is a powerful mental illness and can do all kind of crazy things to your body. You have to try and except it and take either homeopathic remedies or anxiety meds , cognitive therapy, acupuncture and excersize. Dont just do nothing about it or you will become a slave, like myself to it. Best of luck!! If you have any further questions im here:)
