As it says in the subject line I have had what I would call severe diarrhea for close to 5 months. This is bad enough but it has transformed into constantly being light headed and dizzy. My memory is getting foggy as I forget things I should know from time to time or just isn't as sharp as it used to be anymore. I thought I might have hypoglycemia because when I would eat something the light headed bit would go away and I would feel better. So I went to the Dr and he ran two different blood tests and a stool sample. Aside from the cholesterol being mildly high, I was the picture of perfect health and "nothing is wrong with me". I know I have to be dehydrated at this point, but I drink water all day long, I know I should probably drink more than I am, but I drink enough to make myself feel better and it makes me feel slightly worse.
Also, roughly the same time this kicked off, I was injured at work. Being workers comp, it has yet to be diagnosed, but it was a neck injury and possibly mid/lower back as well. I haven't felt my middle toes in 2 months and I get general numb feelings throughout the body all day long. I am generally weak and basic tasks like folding laundry or vacuuming the floor completely wipe me out and I have to sit for a while if not sleep. (oh yeah without ambien it takes me on average 4-5 hours to fall asleep)
I have been battling depression and anxiety for years now (parting gift from the Army) I see an LPC (licensed professional counselor) and a psychiatrist on a regular basis. Of course they believe that everything I am going through can be fixed with happy thoughts. Even once implied that my physical injury would go away if I just improved my mood...hmmm...
With all of this and nobody really knowing what is wrong I am currently on 8 different prescription medications and a diet to fix being "perfectly healthy". Google says that some of the medications will react with one another so I was told by the Dr to stop taking them. Google, in true fashion, also tells me 200 horrible ways I am going to die from this stuff...
Anybody have any ideas on what the heck could be going on with me because I somehow doubt the doctors when they say I am in perfect health. Sorry for the sarcasm, but I am frustrated as this thing continues to gets worse
I am currently seeing a:
and a Neurologist
All more than happy to find a new tests I can pay for, but none with any answers aside from...you are fine. I am also in my mid 30's
