I have had really fast metabolism my whole life. I can eat and eat but never really gain weight. If external reasons cause me to only eat once a day (stress/pain/medication) I drop weight fast. Before my spine surgery I was 97 pounds, I should be 115. Other symptoms I get off and on heart palpitations, shaky hands, muscle twitches all over body, anxiety/irritability, low blood sugar symptoms (dizzy when standing, almost passing out and seeing stars), leg pains that come and go, vision problems, insomnia (tired all the time but can never sleep), hives and itchy spots under the skin, very enlarged glands (today I started choking when trying to take morning meds). I am recovering from cervical spine surgery still (7 months; arm went paralyzed for 3 days after surgery and have dealt with extreme nerve issues in hands and arms, numbness/buzzing, pain and dropping things), have frequent migraines and horrible allergies (started allergy shots). When I had the last MRI before spine surgery they noticed enlarged thyroid. I have had a bunch of blood work over the last 6 years but nothing has looked abnormal. I have been tested for everything they can think of and most recently MS but nothing fits. So all my symptoms have been excused away as the neck injury/nerve damage, migraines and allergies. I'm getting frustrated as these symptoms are still present and I have no answers. I have scheduled blood work for tomorrow to recheck again. This is one thing they have not suggested. I was shocked when I read the symptoms today and how many that I have that relate. I am also bring in the list of symptoms with times/dates of symptoms occurring. Any suggestions?
