Since the start of the new year, its been very tough for me to lead a normal life. I have all these unexplained symptoms happening to me and i don't know why. I was a completely healthy individual last year, but all of a sudden, this year, i've just had these unexplained symptoms happen. Anyone can help?
a) Hard to sleep
b) When wake up after good nights sleep, still tired all day
c) Blurred vision
d) Lower back pain
e) Headaches - at some points to the extent that i had to stop doing everything to focus
f) Calve pain
g) Tremors, especially on my hands
I would appreciate any suggestions, as i have been to the neuro who thinks i just think too much (which is the case..i do think alot and worry that something is wrong with me). Please do help. Also, i'm only 25.
You may have anxiety issues you are not recognizing. If you are a thinker and a worrier, that seems most likely. The calf pain may be dehydration and/or electrolyte imbalance. There are many more options to explore with a family doctor rather than a neurologist. Keep us posted with other doc apps and changes.
yea - im confused myself and don't know what to do. My neuro confirmed that it wouldn't be a thyroid issue or else he would see it right away. So that covers that aspect, my own believe is the anxiety issue as every single symptom i have fits in with anxiety attacks...how do i get rid of this..i feel like i'm sick, but really, it's myself who's making me sick since doctors can't seem to find anything wrong with me (although i have never done an MRI yet). One of my friends i spoke to casually mentioned aids, but i told him that's just insane. Is HIV even a possibility?
it could happen for someone to have a physiological problem and be perfectly convinced that it's psychological. in reality though you cannot cause any symptoms at all, you could only eventually be lying about them, if you had a psychological problem.
only the tremors could well be due to psychological agitation.
what do you mean with "full body check" ? there are 10s of radiological and blood tests. The average blood works usually have very little to do with your symptoms...
Keep calm, I guess there's nothing in your symptoms that require an emergency treatment. You cannot manage the symptoms alone, you need to talk about it to another doctor.
A lot of the reason why you are panicking is that
1 you have no idea what is going on to you
2 you are not looked after properly by a specialist.
you can't do much for now about the first point but you can work on the second!
I guess you're right, it's just an average blood work to see that my body is fine and well - and that went by with flying colours. You are correct though that i am panicking badly because i have NO idea what is going on with me. I've been to the neuro who is convinced there isn't anything wrong with me. Should i try another neuro? I'm also seeing a spine specialist who is fixing my back problem..where else/what else should i be doing :(
I feel like another way to calm my nerves is just to get checked for hiv. I mean -- this way i know for sure this is out of it and i can rule it out. Maybe it will cause my panicking to fade in some ways. I'll do this..there isn't any harm anyways..
All of your symptoms are listed under magnesium deficiency so this is a possibility. 1% of magnesium is found in blood, and 0.3% is found in blood serum so clinical blood serum testing may not successfully identify magnesium deficiency.
The questionaire below is from Ancient Minerals website. Each sign goes into more detail on the website so this is the short version.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you may be at risk for low magnesium intake.

You think you can handle your symptoms but you don't have the means to. If you want to work things out you need to work, study the matter.
do you know anything about AIDS? it sounds like you don't. it takes years for HIV to become AIDS. even if you did have AIDS it couldn't cause you those symptoms ONLY and nothing else, it would be impossible.
it's typical for a person who is ill to suppose to be responsible in some way for the illness, which is the case sometimes but very often it doesn't have anything to do with what they ate/smoked/touched etc.
moreover your symptoms don't sound like an infection at all, unless you had encefalo-myelitis or something but probably you would have known by now.
take the HIV test, what costs you.
and go on to see another Neurologist. keep calm and try to not to talk nonsense or nobody will take you seriously.
