In July of 2010 I began experiencing episodes of weakness and confusion which generally lasted from 30 minutes to several hours. These episodes disappeared after several weeks and returned in mid October. Since October I've experienced these episodes more days than not. I've been unable to pinpoint any exact cause, but I do know that strenuous exercise will almost certainly trigger a "strong" episode. For the past week the symptoms have been lasting most of the day, and the only remedy I've found to these episodes, taking a nap, is no longer effective. I've been to my doctor several times and the only abnormality on any test was a single raised creatinine level (1.5) when blood was drawn while I was actually feeling rotten. I'm 31 and other than having my gall-bladder removed when I was 16, I've been rather healthy. I don't drink, smoke, do any drugs, most summers I bicycle several thousand miles, ... There is a family history of heart disease, diabetes, ... My Dr. is stumped. Any thoughts?
Notes on the episodes:
- Weakness throughout body, but especially legs and arms
- My brain feels cloudy and I have a difficult time with tasks that I'd normally find easy
- Retention of information while in a episode is just horrible
- Recently I've noticed an uncomfortable "full" feeling in my stomach
Thanks for your help!!!
