I get prolonged feeling of pressure at the centre of my chest - near xiphoid / bottom of sternum (going from diagrams and trying to match to my body)
I also get sharp / stabbing pains to (my) left of sternum, approx two ribs up. Several times a week at random, night or day.
Have also been suffering from swollen glands, in the neck and armpits. Glands go up and down intermittently, not always at the same time as other symptoms. Even when not swollen they feel very tender.
Chills and unusual variations in body temperature - regardless of room temperature. I also suffer from night sweats, soaking the bedclothes, I also get a lot of headaches which is abnormal for me.
Energy levels low. Motivation low. Higher than normal blood pressure
Chest pains since around June 2014 and for the last two years hands and feet constant redness. This has become much more uncomfortable since around March 2014 when it started to affect my everyday life. When body temperature goes up hands and feet will feel as if burning, as if a lot of pressure was being applied. Similar to if you pressed your palms hard on a desk until they heated up. This is especially bad during the night, I have to keep hands and feet outside of blanket. It stops me from sleeping. It moves like pins and needles but feels like burning. The redness is blotchy, there are spots (not raised but small spot sized areas) where it’s more concentrated a darker red.
I don't know if these symptoms are connected, doctors haven't found anything wrong. Our surgery is busy and it's not always easy to see a doctor. The doctor will say "what do you want me to do?"
