hello, im rhys, im 22. 5ft 5" at 57kg. i am in good pysical health with no alergies and its very rare i come down with an illness.
for a good couple years now i have felt light headed and not with it from the moment i wake up until i go to bed. its proressively getting worse too as ive noticed im becoming quite forgetful and clumbsy and developed slight tinitus too.
at work i can find it hard to concentrate as my head just feels spaced out and like im not there. i often forget silly things as if my brain flicked on auto pilot and i forget i went up the stairs or did certain things. now more than ever im dropping my pens or food as if my hand-eye coordination is off. my forehead pysically feels tight and i struggle to feel enthusiastic towards much as im not entirely with it. ive started struggling to read things too. words on a page or screen often appear as a mess and slows me down reading through it. screens in general at times dont seem right either, say theres a simply picture or piece of text, i will just struggle to concentrate and i guess process it all.
i am not someone to moan about my problems but this is getting me down so much now as i never feel 100%. this has gone on for too long now...
over the last year i have completely changed my diet. i started working out 3/5 days a week drastically cutting back on sugary drinks (not that i was ever large. i simply wanted a better diet) i cut out chocolates, crappy foods, i dont drink alcohol or smoke either.
my diet now consists of stirfries, rices, bagels, apples, smothies, salads, roasts, nutty bars, porridges, water, orange/apple juice etc.
eliminating bad consumerables has had no impact trying to shift this weird lightheadedness.
i moved out from home too. its a lot quieter in my place with no dogs or birds anymore. i thought maybe i was slightly elergic to the pets but nope. still no effect on my health.
i shower daily. maybe the steam was making me feel this way so i lowered the tempurature and time in the shower yet thats made no difference.
months ago i underwent a tonsilectomy and my blood pressure was rather low but not alarmingly (i cant remember the blood pressure reading sorry). i do suffer from chillblains in the winter but taking adalat retard 10mg clears it up.
i am currently seeing a pysio for my legs as i get chin pains when say jumping, running etc but i belive this is an aftermath of bad legs as i had twisted knees as a kid.
not that im saying a tonsillectomy, chillblains and shin pain is causing me to fell lighted headed, unfocused, clumbsy and forgetful but thought maybe stress could be causing it but then again i am such a laid back person.
with the lifestyle changes i have made, i really thought something would have made me feel more like myself but no. i cant seem to figure out what is causing this weird feeling. i cant perform my job properly and my collegues are noticing something isnt right.
please, any suggestions or guidance will be so very much appreiciated. even for just one day i would love to wake up and feel in control and raring to go with a clear head and fully functionable. ive forgotten a time when i didnt have this weird feeling upon me.
thank you so much more taking time out of your busy lives to read this!
