Heat intolerance, brain fog, low energy and skin rashes.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello

Every day I get worse. No doctors find the reason of my low energy, skin iflamation and rashes, bloating, heat intolerance, hot flashes or brain fog. Lately I cannot function and I get very dizzy if I go down to the floor. I am not going out anymore because the heat kills me and I am not able to do anything. I have 0 energy and my episodes are getting worse. I have seen like 20 doctors. Any help?????

    Have u checked you blood. Look at you iron, magnesium, B12, and vitamin D levels to see if they are low. Also have them check for Lyne disease and your thyroid as well.

    The first thing I thought was thyroid. But you've ruled that out. Lyme test is good to rule out, especially if you live in an area with ticks. Are you menopausal? Some of the symptoms could be meno. Also, maybe a food intolerance? That wouldn't show up on an allergy test since intolerance is not true allergy. Gluten, eggs, dairy are big offenders, but it can be any food. Look up how to do an elimination diet.

    I am surprised you've seen so many drs, and only had thyroid checked. As well as a blood cell panel and chem panel, ask for a sedimentation rate test. It is not specific to a certain disease, but shows the state of inflammation in your body. A markedly positive test should prompt investigation into autoimmune disease, as well as infections and other conditions.

      Wow. I see you know a lot. I do not kow if you are studying medicine or you read a lot like me but you really know. I started gluteen free yesterday since I read about gluteen sensitivity because I am not celiac. I will do it for three months and then lactose will be the next. I really appreciate your advices and the time you spent with me. You care more than my doctors. Thanks. In this kind of situations we learn the importance of somebody listening to you. I am not menopausal yet but I have a lot of symptoms of it. I will ask for the tests that you told me. Now tell me about you. What is happening to you???

      I'm currently doing well. I have what is called vestibular or basilar migraine. It causes ringing in my ear, rocking dizziness, visual disturbance, stuffy nose one side, and sometimes, facial pain. I am on a preventative drug for it, and I also have to avoid a lot of foods, pretty

      Sorry, wasn't finished ! I pretty much avoid all prepared foods, cured meats, red wine. Rain storms are also a trigger. This all started 3 yrs ago when I entered perimenopause.

      I'm am not a medical professional, but I am a scientist and I like to research things. I hope the gluten free diet works for you.

      I've had regular migraines infrequently since 20 yrs old. I am 48 now. 3 yrs ago, I started up with attacks of the one sided stuffy nose, ear ringing, and facial pressure. I thought it was allergies or sinus problem. My very smart allergist said vestibular migraine. Then occasional vertigo happened, as well as generalized dizziness. I went to an ENT, who also said migraine, so I finally caved in and went to the neurologist, and we started trialing different meds, which helped. I always do good in summer and fall. Winter spring can get bad again. I also have fibromyalgia, which has returned with perimenopause. Hormones are my biggest migraine trigger, so I cannot take HRT. Weather is a well recognized migraine trigger, as is certain foods, stress, hormones, caffeine, and other things I'm forgetting, lol!

      Wow. Almost everything triggers it. I do know that banana, chocolate and cheese are your enemies.Do you have it under control now? It is very good that you read a lot and learn how to get better. It is not easy when you do not know what makes you worse. I am glad you found good Drs. I have not been that lucky.
