hello all who reads this,
I'm a 30 year old female 10 months postpartum.Dx with postpartum cardiomyopathy about 4 months after delivery and have recovered. But I have been extremely fatigue.Well I will actually say all of my symptoms started ONE day June 28 of 08 to be exact...
And heres all of my symptoms
shortness of breath
skin looks like livedo reticularis
muscle weakness/ lip twitches for days
tingling in head and have had brain tingling sensations
sensitivity to light especially *florescent
I feel like I have a constant hangover
always unbalanced equilibrium I have to grip feet to ground
I have severe memory problems and brain fog
Depression-----can't find out whats wrong with me
swollen lymph nodes
my menstrual cycle is monthly but seems to worsen all these symptoms
the fatigue is unbearable I have to sit in a chair just to wash dishes
my life has not much quality and my family and children are suffering.
I have had my blood work ups, an MRI
They have ruled out Lupus,thyroid issues, hepatitis, no infection detectable by basic blood work. I am to the point of being tired of describing all these symptoms to doctors.I have been to 15 doctors the ER at least 8 times in 10 months and 200 viles of blood. I have no idea whats wrong with me and I'm sad and scared.
To all that have been DX with this condition can this happen after a illness? Or a very emotionally stressful situation.Does it just happen instantly?
A few more important thing to add I have hemorrhaged twice after delivery. I have been bitten by a tick when I was a child twice.
Thanks for listening and any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
