About a year ago, I began experiencing severe nausea and bowel problems that I now assume are attributed to ibs. Still, that doesn't explain the other symptoms. Three years ago, I had a normal amount of energy every day. I was able to wake at 9am every morning after going to bed in the wee hours. I had no problems ambulating with a hemi walker and could perform household tasks like cooking and cleaning without any issue. It was rare for me to need extra sleep. Since recovering from my eating disorders, I eat about four times a day, although unfortunately it is not a very healthy diet most of the time. That fact hasn't changed much since my new symptoms began. But you see, for twelve months now, I can't seem to wake up any sooner than 10am. When I do awake, I feel as though I have been beaten and have what I would think a bad hangover probably feels like..or, the worst virus ever. I spend thirty minutes or so trying to pry myself out of bed after that. When I finally get up, I still feel weak and completely bulldozed. I often get so dizzy that I feel as though I am going to faint. I go around the entire day with debilatating exhaustion and fatigue. I have muscle weakness and balance issues so severe that I struggle to stand or walk even with my large walker. I have frequent palpatations and chest pain that have not been explained. I have severe heat intolerance. I fall asleep in the evenings nearly every day due to uncontrollable sleepiness. I have tremors in my hands and shaking in my whole body. I can't seem to hold onto objects without dropping them. I faint involuntarily over and over on long car rides. I am losing weight unintentionally (5 lbs in a month) and my hair and eyelashes are also falling out. I have noticed that my eyes have a slight bulge. It basically feels as though my body is trying to either shut down or go into a coma. I have been tested to vitamin defiencies and thyroid function, all of which come back normal. A1c always near prediabetic, yet told that I am fine. Blood counts are fine. ect, ect. I cry nearly every day because no doctor seems to know what is making me feel so ill. Please help.
