I am a 21 year old male Currently in Tech school.
No alcohol or drug use
I have been having some weird symptoms lately and it has been Interfering with my life. Let me start by saying i think my doctors think i am "faking" or "drug" seeking because of how i look... I have never taken any illegal drugs in my life besides Marijuana & light drinking in high school. I have many symptoms but what is worrying me is everyday headaches(eyes feel weird & sometimes my ear rings when i get these headaches), Heart pains, bad short term memory loss, fits of rage, & Bad confusion. Other symptoms are Dry thin skin with dark bags under my eye, thin hair, & low BMI. Also i have a few brown spots on the white's of my eye. To make it simple I look like i am on drugs. I have had multiple tests done a TSH, CBC, metab panel, EKG & ECG. I was told they look fine. I had 2 abnormalities MPV 12.9 & Albumin 5.3. I suspected I had Hyperthyroidism but they said it was normal with a TSH value of 0.96. No clue why they didin't check my anti bodies. My doctor then said i had anxiety and put me on buspar to see if that helped. I felt worse on it and stopped it. Then i went back because of the same symptoms and was given a "drug" talk... I was offended but kept it to myself. I was asked "did you stop taking it or did you take it all" Why would someone say that? At the end i was asked if i would like to see a psychiatrist. I am very confused and mad at this situation I am having physical symptoms and just want too feel better. Also i try so hard to gain weight i eat constantly big meals and protein shakes (I was told it could be my genetics) I have a BMI of 17.3. I also drink lots of water but wake up with a dry mouth. Sorry if this seems like too much to grasp but i am just so confused this all started about a year ago... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
