Nov. 2005 I started to feel faint, and two weeks later, I felt I was seriously ill with the following symptoms;all day and night feeling of faintness/dizzyness, bloody nose at night, bad night sweats,sharp headaches, constant trembling, weakness in legs, confusion, fast heart 90-100 beats/min at rest. feeling like i was always trying to catch my breath, chest pains,low blood pressure at times. I stuggled thru work and was bedridden the rest of the time.
I went to the Dr. and he tested me for many things; hyper-hypo thryriodism, hypo/hyper glocemia, lukemia, lupus. aids, diabetes, addison's etc. All came back negative. except for my B12 level was under 400. I was a little under weight 100lbs @ 5'3", so I put on 10 lbs(petite build) but weight gain did not clear my illness.
The illness was persistant for 60 days straight, then began to ease off and slowly dispate. As of now, i experience these symptons still but they much less sever. the most persistant sympton is a fast heart rate at rest of 90-100 beats/min. I experience chest pains as well, sharp and dull.
My Dr is not sure, he decided sudden onset of major depression. but did not tell, he just wrote in my chart) Help! I was a very happy person before i got sick. There is something wrong with me! Instinctual I know it! and if i keep hearing it is depression, I will become depressed!!!
