I have no where else to turn, please someone take the time to read this and help me, it would be much appreciated.
I am a 19 year old female, 5’5 and 128 pounds. I exercise daily (except since I’ve been sick) I eat relatively healthy with the occasional fast food.
It all started one day in nursing class, I became very very hot and sweaty and an all around overwhelming feeling like I was going to pass out, I felt like I couldn’t breath and became tingly all over. I was able to get some air and did not pass out. That following week I was vomiting profusely with the addition of feeling disoriented and shaky and on and off feeling of going to pass out. I also experienced a lot of diarrhea. The diarrhea wasn’t alarming because I have experience that on and off at least once a week for as long as I can remember (years). After that I got sick with a cough and runny nose, chest pains (extreme) that have since been checked by a cardiologist and he called it sinus tachycardia, as well as a bit of an irregular heartbeat. After that I started experiencing extreme abdominal pain and was hospitalized because they thought it was my gallbladder (still do) but there were no kidney stones. I was checked for blood clot and pneumonia as well. In the last couple months I’ve had chest X-ray, abdominal X-ray, two CT-scans and one showed diverticular disease. After that I got a bit better with on and off abdominal pain (it feels sharp and seems to move around my abdomen) and became ill will bronchitis and a sinus infection. Both have cleared up well. But, I still do not feel well. Everyday I have this dreaded brain fog feeling, terrible head pain and pressure as well as headaches. The head pain almost feels like my head is bleeding on my brain, like a warm liquid. I feel tired and weak, I’m shaky and itchy. My legs ache so so bad all of the time especially when lying down, I have terrible pain in my kidneys that comes and goes, vision troubles and sometimes my legs and feet flare up in hives for no reason. I have told my doctors this but they only address one symptom and send me on my way. I know I am not crazy, this is not anxiety or depression it is physical and it is there. It’s becoming almost crippling to my everyday life. I don’t know what to do, I just want to feel better but this is making it hard.
Please someone help me I am looking for a new doctor but has anyone else experienced this? I just know there is a reason for this....
