I'm not on any medications, except loperamide as a PRN.
I've always been this way, though. I weigh about 95lbs, but even when I was up to 120lbs I was still cold. Not just chilly, but to the point of wearing sweaters in plus 30 degree (Celsius) weather.
I was thinking possibly my thyroid, but I don't think all my symptoms point to that. I have pretty much all of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, but I know there's little anyone could do for me if that were the case. I know Fibromyalgia is a serious condition, but I have had a few too many doctors shrug it off, as they do for IBS.
I'm sick of feeling like a hypochondriac, so you can imagine my hesitation when bringing up anything else... but I am getting worried because I keep having these "spells" and they're getting more and more frequent. Basically, I'll be going about
my business, and all of a sudden my heart feels weird, I get a wave of either nausea or dizziness, and I'm "gone" for a second... I feel like I'm about
to fall over, or that all my extremeties are numb - when this happens, I keep pinching at my hands and legs or feet, and I don't feel the pain I should, I feel a poke or something... but it's not right. I guess I'm just tired of trying to prove something is wrong, but if I keep having these things it may develop into something more... what do you guys think?

“Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.” ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
