For the last few years I have been having a lot of issues. Flushing, sore throat, pain in the center of my chest, trouble losing weight, crazy fatigue, dry skin, and other things I am sure I am forgetting (did I mention brain fog?)
So the primary has given me the thyroid blood test a few times. My gynecologist keeps giving me the same blood tests. And more recently my ENT gave me one. They are all fine. My sore throats has gotten much worse this year. I have had an endoscopy and it was all clear. The GI doctor doesn't even think I have GERD based on what he saw. The ENT saw nothing when she looked. Every time I go to urgent care they see my throat is a little red, but nothing serious. They gave me two rounds of antibiotics and nothing happened.
I started having shooting pains in my neck, ear pain, and more recently I have started to have a horrible pain in the back of my neck and upper spine, stiff neck... and it gets worse if I walk around. By the end of the day I have to lay down I am in so much pain. I also have this consistent feeling like someone is pressing their fingers on the base of the front of my throat.
I have also felt seriously dizzy when I stand up. Once recently I was bending my head over for a while looking at my phone and there was a pillow under it and the pillow pattern started to move like water. I felt very dizzy as well. I've been having moments where I feel like I'm going to pass out as well.
I am just so confused about what has been going on because I have had just about every test in the book. The ENT did schedule an ultrasound on my thyroid at my urging. She was more focused on autoimmune and all the antibody tests came back fine. My primary and ENT are going in the direction of fibromyalgia and I just don't feel like that fits. All of my pain centers around my neck and as I write this there is an intense pressure at the base of the front of my neck that is radiating down to the center of my chest.
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?
