Many of your symptoms resemble Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS.
Read this information, and look at the list of symptoms:
Wishing you the best,
I thought that I might have polycsystic ovaries as organs that are polycystic runs in my family, however, I did not know that that could cause that wide range of symptoms. I will be sure to ask my doc next time I see them. Can PCOS also be causing the lightheadedness, dizziness, and nausea?
You may have several things going on, not just PCOS.
PCOS may be due to an underlying infection that disrupts the HPA axis (hypothalmus - pituitary - adrenal glands).
Some of the other problems may be due to that underlying infection.
Do you also have random twiches, pins and needles,sweaty palms and feet, inner tremors and palpitations? how old are you?
Yes, I occasionally have random twiches. Seldom have pins and needles feeling in hands and feet. Sweaty palms and feet, but mostly when I've been using them or when my feet are in shoes or under blankets. I don't know what inner tremors or palpitations you may be talking about. I'm 22
I forgot to mention earlier that I also have gas, from both ends, but mostly the rear. And my hands have been cramping up and hurting like arthritus. Pain during intercourse moved from middle of abdomen just under ribs, to high on right side just under ribs, to low on right side in pelvic region. Laslty my left ear feels like the ear drum is flutuating and kinda sounds like there is liquid in there.
You may check to see about your hormones! They could be out of wack. I suffer from all of these plus some... I have seen just about every kind of doc possible. Most of the symptoms did not start until after I had my son. I am 23 and my son is one now. Since I had him I have been diagnosed with Kidney stones from the pregnancy, Gastritis form H~Pylori...you may look into that. I suffer from very bad anxiety..it can do crazy things to your body. Sometimes i find that I wonder what is causing me to feel bad when a symptoms strikes and before you know it my legs and arms go numb and my stomach turn and before you know it I cant leave the bathroom. This sometimes last days! Anxiety can hit at any time..you do not even have to be worrying about anything. I also have polyps and cysts through my sinus's. It sucks but I think that my anxiety plays a big role....oh and my hormones. Def. look into getting an upper gi done and maybe see a Gastrologist about checking for gastritis. Look into a stress test and maybe checking your hormones...hope you get better soon. I feel you honey!
There is also a rare disorder called porphyria that can affect both gastrointestinal and neuro areas. There are several different types of porphyria's that can cause different symptoms including skin and hair. Testing is very difficult. My mother was recently diagnosed, after being told nothing was wrong with her and it was all in her head. She luckily had a PCP who had seen simular symptoms in a patient 20 years prior and tested for it during a hospitalization. It is a vary rare genetic disorder, but shouldnt be discounted. Ask your doctor, and you can find out more about symptomology by googling porphyria and looking at the foundation's website. Good luck finding something!
Thanks everyone for responding! I really appreciate it!
I saw a tv show about a man a little while back and he had some kind of abnormality where his body couldn't break down something that is in all food. I think it was zinc, but I am not sure. He got to where he had a rash on his hands and feet also and they thought for years it was a kidney disorder but it was a problem with his body breaking down the food he ate. I wish I remembered what it was, it was really rare. But alot of the symptoms you described are the ones he battled with for years before anyone could figure it out until he went to a specialist. I will try to remember it and I will ask my husband to see if he remembers it. He also got like these pinpoint things almost like splinters that were coming out of his hands too. I sure hope you get to feeling better.
check your thryroid, glucose, and GERD.
