hi


i have had my symptoms for a year and a few weeks, i dont know what to do, im constantly feeling weak, muscles feel weak, joints hurt, i get tired easily and exhausted, i get heart palptations, just feel like im walking on clowds and not all there, feels like either my brains not getting enough oxygen or somthing is in my head some kind of poisoning feeling. somtimes when i stand i get more dizzyness and fainting feeling somtimes balckouts in my eyes and headaches.

i have noticed my blood pressure had decreased from what it normally used to be orignally when my problem began i remember my bp went low into 92/65 and heart had been racing over 100 for a day, normally its 130/85. it is currently just above 108/69 my heart rate has come down it used to be 75-85 and now is somtimes in 50's 60's and i also get palptations. also i suffered eye inflamation (inflammation) too, photophobia, eye pain, which steroid drops had fixed, i have been tested for adrenal insufficiency, thyroid, liver, ecg was fine, i have had the test where bp is tested sitting and standing and that was fine.

all my symptpms happened a year and a few weeks ago, one day i noticed one of my eye lid was droopy, just felt like i wasnt getting enough circulation maybe, i tried running as i thought this would fix it, i woke up next morning feeling weak and brainfogged with tingling sensations in my lips,arms, breathlessness, heart palptations, felt like an altered conciousness, i had panic attacks i felt i was having a stroke, this is how it all began.

also want to add, i have had a whiplash injury 2 years ago, 2 weeks prior to my symptoms i went to a physio therapist who had minipulated my back, as in popped it from top to bottom, could this all be due to what the therapist has done? as i may have some kind of spinal/nerve issue?
can all this simply be annxiety,hypochonriac symptoms, depression?

Hi, I am sorry you are having to go through such a rough time. I wanted to let you know that I too have suffered with all of these symptoms. After 2 years of seeing many doctors I found an Endocrinologist that diagnosed me with inflammation of the thyroid with normal blood levels, reactive hypoglycemia and insulin resistance. You said you had your thyroid checked but, what tests did the doctor actually do? Did he or she check your thyroid antibodies, free t- 4, free t-3 and TSH?  Did they check your pituitary hormones?
My doctor never explained the cause of my low blood pressure because they think it is a great blood pressure even though it wasn't my normal. My blood pressure typically runs 120/70 and it was running 94/58. My doctor started me on a low dose of Armour thyroid med. It helped take down the inflammation and with my symptoms. It wasn't until I started taking Metformin, strict low glycemic high fiber diet, and moderate exercise that most of my issues disappeared. You may want to be checked for low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) also. This can happen when you have insulin resistance or thyroid issues. I would definitely set an appointment with an Endocrinologist so he or she can check these things out as well as check all of your hormones to see if there is any imbalance. Good Luck

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You have described your symptoms pretty well. From you symptoms alone it sounds like chronic fatigue syndrome. This usually presents with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, headaches, chronic mental and physical exhaustion, cognitive difficulties, concentration difficulty and memory problems.
Then you also need to investigate other causes of brain fog like liver dysfunction (get liver enzymes done—liver function test), kidney dysfunction (get kidney function test done), and anemia. Thyroid problems, adrenal gland function and diabetes should be checked.
I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome that turned into fibromyalgia after my gall bladder surgery. My fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue has been cured after the insulin resistance was addressed with medication (helps your insulin receptors become more sensitive to insulin), low glycemic high fiber diet and exercise. Please go to an Endocrinologist, give them a list of your symptoms and tell them what you would like checked into. You should be evaluated by an Endo first. Then go from there.

hi

thank you so much for your replies, i have tested for diabetes,kidney test,thyroid (tsh) adrenal (cortisol) they were all fine, my liver enzymes have been mildly high, and records show they have been like this for many years, i had been tested for hep viruses neg, i was told they are fine so i look at it as not a problem, also autoimune hep seems unclear, have a drs appointment soo to talk about this,

donjoe31 thanks for the reply
insulin resistance i believe could be part of my problem, i do remember fainting once and was taken hospital and my sugar levels were very low and i had the symptoms of hypoglycemia, but they have gradually gotten better. i will be looing to speak to a endocrinologist.
