Here is the list...

I have been suffering off and on for a year now with the following list of symptoms.... neuropathy in feet .... carpaltunnel in hands...internal vibration/shakes...crawling pressure in temples...floaters in eyes...IBS..joint pain..burning tingling and numbness throughout my body...pain points in chest upper back thighs .... sciatic nerve pain... burning tongue and lips... heart palps ...shortness of breath...anxiety and went from drinking coffee all day  to not being able to handle one sip without panic attacks.. i have had my heart checked into a hundred ways but the rest of the symptoms they want to dismiss as anxiety... i am not anxious.. well i am but not any more then others who dont have a single symptom... i am scared but mostly frustrated... i am thinking maybe fibromyalgia or something but it absolutely is not just nervousness... if you have had any or all of these please let me know what your thoughts are and what if any diagnosis you were given... i am hoping to get a handle on this before my wedding in november... thanks in advance....Rob

you do have a nervous problem not nervousness but something actually wrong with the fibers of your nerves. this could be due to pressure on you nerves as that causes carpal tunnel, neuropathy and sciatic nerve pain. the numbness and pain in the upper chest and back thighs are directly linked to the sciatic nerve which is the main nerve in the body and  so if this is affected so are your other nerves which leads to the burning tongue and lips also caused by damaged nerves. its not anxiety its physical damage to your nerves. you should also be tested for diabetes as it can cause the nervous problems and the problems with you eyes.

These exercises known as pranayam, will relax you first and deal with the nervous system and some your  other symptoms will start to ease gradually.Do it with concentration and your feedback will help others. Start today.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30  minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Get your thyroid tested... Not all of the symptoms but a lot of them you mentioned sound like you either have: Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism.

Have a read up on some of the symptoms and see if this sounds like you?  I have Graves Disease which started out as a hyperthyroid.

Wow it sounds as though your poor body is having a tough time with everything.  Listen at the end of the day I'm not doctor but I made a huge decision to do the work myself after I was diagnosed with Graves Disease.

I have suffered from so many things throughout my life and to be honest in my case I believe the majority of my issues could have a been avoided through a healthy diet and change of lifestyle.

I say empower yourself and get healthy!  I quit smoking, I've been doing that for 15-years, I have also cut all junk out of my diet.  I only eat fresh fruit and vegetables and prepare all my meals from scratch.  I take a liguid mineral suppliment that I bought from an organic health food store online and I listen to a relaxing meditation cd half an hour every night before bed.  Why, bc I used to be a high strung stress head and I know my body was just crying out for help.

The illness I have - Graves Disease is an auto-immune disease where my immune system is attacks my thyroid.  I even had problems with my eyes as well.  I figured I could let this illness knock me down or I could strengthen my immune system so it wouldn't turn on me like it has been doing.  I'm not cured, but I feel great again for the first time in god knows how long?  I truly believe that if you look after yourself it can make all the difference.  Some of our symptoms are so hard to diagnose.  I really believe that a lot of these will vanish for you if you choose a healthy lifestyle.  

If you already have a healthy lifestyle and are still struggling for answers, all I can suggest is trying out different doctors.  A new doctor diagnosed me after 5-years of nothing so it is worth trying trust me.  Good luck with it all, let me know how you go?

Don't treat the symptoms, stregthen your body so it's not ill in the first place.

That's the best advice I can give.
