I'm a male, 26 yr old asian. Symptoms are: indigestion/bloating/flatulence, weakness/fatigue, frequent urination and high output, dried skin specially my hands (looks like wood, joint pain, tingling sensation on hands and feet, wakes up at night.
Medical history: high blood pressure, borderline high cholesterol level
Medication: atenelol(tenormin)=high blood pressure
zantac 300= indigestion
problems started about a month and half ago after drinking 3 beers and eating pizza at a party. Please note i drink alcohol only sometime during partys, maybe 10x a year. had indigestion the next day, and warm sensation around abdomen and back area. ignored it for 3 weeks then seeked medical help when i kept on salivating and waking up at night. Also, stools kinda became black and loose.
went to kaiser and all they did was usual blood work..creatin, cbc, thyroid(T4), glucose, and basic liver test. all came back normal according to doctor. Just gave me zantac and said i may be stressed out only.. However, situation getting worse as you can see from list of my symptoms. Came back again at kaiser and they gave me anti-depressant(trazodone) so i can sleep. Said i may be insomniac that's why symptoms appear.
Stopped taking trazodone cause it's not working. Really hate Kaiser, plan to go to other doctor. Any suggestions, what i may request as far as testing. Also, any ideas on what condition i may have???; ulcer, liver disease, ibs, gerd, lupus, scleroderma, malabsorption
