I am desperate for help... my doctors can not figure out what is wrong...I have a few symptoms: I never know when I will wake up feeling "good". Every day is a toss up.... I either wake up feeling extremely tired and dizzy, some days starving and feeling as though I may pass out. Rarely, I will wake up feeling okay. I used to play a ton of sports and be very active and in shape...
I am 23 now and no longer workout as much because I do not ever feel well enough to. I am 5'5" and weight 123 pounds. My appetite is strange because I will eat cereal for breakfast or a bagel and cream cheese sometimes at 7:30 AM because I wake up feeling starving... then I will eat again around 11:30 and have a sandwich or pasta or a filling salad, and then some days this is when I become really sick all of the sudden... I will feel like I am going to pass out, my heart will race, I will get somewhat blurred vision and everything I look at looks like it is closer than it really is.... I get either really hot or freezing cold.... I get a headache... and have fainted at this time before...
Today I just went to my kitchen and felt too exhausted and weak to stand up so I sat down at the fridge almost in panic and drank juice and had some pre-made cold pasta feeling like nothing would help and that I was going to pass out but then 5 minutes later.... I feel much better just have a headache?
The other day I did a fat blasting boot camp for the first time and it was more difficult than I have ever imagined and rather than just feeling out of shape and tired.... I kept getting tunnel vision and feeling like I was going to pass out... I kept taking breaks but she would not let me quit.... After the class I felt really sick and my heart would not stop racing, even after our 15 minute cool down I could not seem to slow my heart down. On my way home I called my dad and could barely talk... I kept feeling like I was going to fall asleep and that I could not talk normally.... I had to talk really slow and slurred my words. My eyes kept closing and I had to pull over. I then checked my pulse and it was still racing. I finally got home and my husband made me a hot bath and I sat in the tub for about
45 minutes and my heart still did not calm down. It was racing as fast as it was when I was exercising.
I do have anxiety and have gotten panic attacks but have never been seen for either (it runs in my family)
The heart racing happens quite frequently...whether I am just in the shower or laying down. Especially if I drink any alcohol. The doctors have tested me for hypoglycemia and that was negative... they tested me for diabetes... that was negative... I took an allergy test which came out normal... I was hooked to to a heart monitor for a few minutes which came out normal.... I have had a brain MRI and an EEG test which was normal. I was tested for Lupus which I showed a positive screen to by my family doctor, but when I was actually tested by the Rheumatologist...it came out negative. I also get frequent UTI's that are excrutiating and sometimes hardly anything comes out and there is bleeding.... The last few UTI's have been tested and come back normal? It is so painful I am crying and have to use the restroom often and feeling like I will lose my bladder but then nothing comes out?
Please help me :( I am really scared at this point
