So I am really in need of some help of symptoms I have been having for the last 5 years and I have not been able to get any kind of diagnosis in that time.
These symptoms all started in 2014 where I started getting problems with my digestion and bladder. I would often get sharp pains in my left rib area and right rib area. When going to the toilet I would find it difficult to pass urine, especially in the morning and it would always leak out after going. I went to the urologist and checked everything but nothing came up and I was simply told to stand longer in the toilet to let the urine pass. My doctor then advised me to stop eating spicey foods. Anyway none of this advice helped and my symptoms continued and I felt too shut down by my doctor to go back because I had been going frequently about my symptoms.
Fast forward to 2019 my symptoms took a turn for the worst. About 3 months ago I woke up to my pupils very dilated and my vision spinning for in hour. I was extremely fatigued and had really bad brain fog to the point I could hardly think or concentrate in anything. Also I was very anxious and my thighs were vibrating as if I had a phone on silent there. This was very intense for about 2 months but slowly got better.
I went back a new doctor and told him about my persistent symptoms from 2014 and how I was getting more and more tired so he ordered blood tests and a ultrasound of my whole stomach. The blood tests were for diabetes, thyroid, white blood count, glandular fever, liver and a pancreas blood test I believe. All came back fine but showed I had glandular fever in the past. The ultrasound showed nothing. I also had a chest x-ray that showed nothing. I took a full STD blood and urine test that showed nothing. My doctor phoned me and basically said just rest it off even though my symptoms have been on going for 5 years and have been slowly getting worse.
I’m not sure what to do at this point, any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am basically been shut down by doctors and family that I have health anxiety when in fact I have just not had a real diagnosis.
