ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Other medical conditions I've been diagnosed with, but could not reference above are Hashimotos, Excoriation, Fibromyalgia, Gastroparesis, Floaters in eyes, along with retinal vein occlussion, balance issues, vertigo, dizziness, Panic Disorder, Vitamin D Deficient, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, PVCs, and tachycardia. I feel like my medical mystery is that I'm on all this medication for all of these diagnoses and I'm still having symptoms related to these medical conditions. I have, what I call, flare ups, because I don't really know why it's happening, but some days I cannot get out of bed. I'm nauseas, can't walk without holding on to something, disoriented, and I have all the symptoms of the flu. I get these flare ups at least 1 to 2 times a month and my doctor's have not really given me a reason why this is occurring. I'm sure since I have asthma, the following occurs, but my doctor's have not confirmed this either; when I have a panic attack or get very upset I instantly can't breath. It feels different from hyperventilating. I have to gasp for air. It's a horrible feeling. Also, I've been trying to loose weight for years, and believe that the combination of the medications I'm taking for my medical conditions is causing me instead to gain weight. My doctor's tell me the medications I'm on do not cause weight gain. I have a difficult time believing them because I do watch what I eat and still cannot loose weight. I've gone from being used to 120 pounds to 276 within the the last 10 years. My endocrinologist even makes mention of it in my medical records. I also have unexplained facial swelling every morning. Sometimes my face is so swollen, my eyes are almost swollen shut and it's difficult to breath. It's been addressed as me just having been in contact with something I'm allergic too; but it happens all the time, intermittantly, and I have not changed my routine. Also, my doctor's have not addressed my excessive sweating. I've been told by every doctor I've gone to and mentioned it to, that I'm not sweating because of this or that medical condition; so I gather, it's happening for no apparent reason.
