My 42 year old wife has been suffering from several symptoms for over a year now and no one seems able to get to the bottom of it. Symptoms are as follows.
Originally numbness and tingling in left hand, this has abated a great deal.
Pain in left arm and left side, mostly a dull ache.
Stiffness and discomfort in her neck.
Dizzyness and feeling she has to get sat down quickly (no episode of collapse or fainting).
Bloods, blood pressure checks and cardiograms have been taken. Her heart appears healthy however she was diagnosed with hypertension and is currently on medication for this, 2 weeks so far. Her pressure was constantly high but spiked at random periods, sometimes as high as 200.
Over the past 18 months she has been under stress due to a family relocation, new jobs, schools, house etc, and originally the doctors were pointing to this despite her assuring them she doesn't react to stress this way. Usually anxiety and a little weight loss, none apparent in this period.
Her diet is healthy and certainly not changed recently, and diabetes has been ruled out. We have tried taking a few things out such as caffiene but no affect.
Any help would be hugely appreciated, this is frustrating but also wipes her out for long periods at a time.
