Chin, it is not uncommon for folks who have gone through periods of extreme stress to see a disruption in their body. Often, vitamin and mineral deficiencies will occur; because the body is using everything it can to fight off the stress response.
Yes, as you say, this could be becuase of a stress. I'm happy but probably a bit tense. I remember phoenix telling me on the other thread that living on tenterhooks like i am now, is not good for my mental health. Thanks flushd - it never occured to me that i should mention my symptoms to the counsellor- i will and see if she is of any help.
Are you getting help for the emotional/psychological elements?
We're seeing a counsellor for my husbands rage problem. And she is helping me too.

Some more symptoms to watch for are sore and tired legs muscles when walking up stairs (I have been crawling up stairs now for a few months) Quick heart beat.
I havent noticed if my heartbeat really goes up - but my legs ache a lot (the calf muscles) while climbing stairs. But i manage to climb 5 floors quite rapidly - so i thought it happens to everyone...

Thanks Bella...i think i need to persevere like you did and find the right doc - even if people think i'm a hypochondriac...
Yesterday, i found out about the ailments in my family (which i could have inherited). I found out that Diabetes is the only disease that runs in ou family. And 2 occurences of something called mysentenia gravis - i looked up to see i do not have those symptoms. I'll go back to the doctor in 6 months - i'm determined to get to the bottom of this
...will keep you all posted
