I'm hoping to get some advice on this. I have been feeling "wrong" for about 7 months now. It started with extreme fatigue. ( I would wake up feeling like I had taken 10 sleeping pills) drowsiness during the day (My eyes were drooping, like I had drunk too much!)
For the last 6 months I have woken up with a sickly feeling in my stomach , like I have eaten something bad. This nausea comes and goes during the day, and often when I eat, I will have to physically stop myself from vomiting.
I also suffer from extreme weakness spells, where out of nowhere I will feel shaky and weak, as if I have not had anything to eat for 2 days or something. This feeling passes. I also seem to have lost a little bit of feeling in my right arm. It feels almost detatched from my body. I also suffer from brain fog most of the day. I have seen 5 specialists and have had nearly every test under the sun. CT, Endoscopy, 2 x blood tests involving Hep, HIV Thyroid, ANA ect. All these tests come up negative! According to modern medicine, there is nothing wrong with me!
Up until 7 months ago I was a happy healthy 27 year old female who loved going to the gym and eating healthy food. These days I can barely function without feeling physically sick/ weak.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks so much.
Stress? Panic attacks?
Since the usual suspects have been ruled out, you might want to consider being tested for more exotic things, like parasitic infections. Hope you feel better soon; that sounds really terrible.
Could there be something in your home or office making you sick? New carpet, water, check the carbon monoxide in your home.??
Have you been out of the country in the last year?
And lastly, are you sure you are not pregnant?
Thanks for the reply. I have had sooo many urine tests. No i'm not pregnant. I have not been out of Australia.
My guess would be cronic fatigue syndrome. I have several friends who have suffered from cronic fatigue.
Symptoms may include persistent weakness and exhaustion, pain, disrupted sleep and palpitations. The cause is unknown.
Did you get tested for Lyme's Disease. Those symptoms are the same as yours.
Early menopause can cause some similar symptoms, too.
How old are you?
... No i'm not pregnant. I have not been out of Australia.
Please forgive me, but I had to laugh at these two sentences together.
