I dont really know what's bothering me and I've been having these pains all over my body. I'm 27 years old and never felt anything like this. I used to weigh 300lbs in last July but I lost about 40lbs since I got a job. But anyways ever since July I been having these like panic attacks and I thought I was having a heart Attack. Just like everyone says. But now it's change. I feel worse now and it don't feel like panic attack or anxiety. Im having pain in my head like pressure so bad that my head wants to blow and that makes me think crazy.

I also been having like stomach pain where you feel like your intestines are dry or something like you feel hungry in a way but not really. It's discomfort in that upper stomach area near the chest. I also feel like my nerves in my body are killing me. It makes me feel like my body wants to shut down and that one scares me. I also get dizzy but no nausea. Just like vertigo. And I also work and this is effecting my work. All I talk about is my health probs to my co workers and I know they are probably tired of it. Also my legs feel like they are burning sometimes. I work 8 hours a dAy standing up dealing with customers I get so frustrated and can't deAl with them.

I been to the er a bunch of times. They done EKG. ECG. Stress test. Ct scan. Blood drawn a few times. XrAy on my chest and all came out negative. What is going on with me. I get no sleep at all. I feel like this for the past week all day everyday. I was taking busiprone for the anxiety/stress. The physician lady told me to just play with them even if there was nothing wrong. I wonder if it's the buspirone making me crazy. Idk. And as a teen from 18-23 I used to be a heavy meth addict and smoke ciggs to but I'm sober now. Almost 3 years clean.

No. I'm not a big fan of sugar. I been most likely eating subways and there are days I get tired of eating that so I skip it sometimes and eat some fast food. My diet changed once I started feeling these symptoms last year. But most of my life I been eating fast food and unhealthy stuff. Wasn't a big fan of sweets though.

Bigboi,  my first question for you is do you have a regular Dr, someone who will follow your symptoms & try to find out what is going on?  A diagnosis for CFS is made by eliminating every other possibility, through blood tests & anything else your Dr wants to use to eliminate other illnesses.  A lot of your symptoms could be CFS, dizzyness, fatigue, tiredness, burning pain in legs, but they can also be symptoms from other illnesses as well.  Finding a dx can take a while so be patient.  I wish the best for you.  Hugs, Denise

Ok thanks. I just went to the er a few days ago again and they just did a EKG and blood test. Didn't find nothing again. So the doc told me to find a specialist so I'm gonna try. Tomorrow I got a mental health appointment and tues I gotta follow up for a physician. Will see what happens. Thanks
