Hello. I am sorry to read of your many issues and I am sure this is not a pleasant time for you. After reading the many physical problems you are having I would suspect you have a lot more stress and anxiety than you are aware of.
It is good to know that you have been checked out for any cardiac problems but am wondering if you have seen a GI specialist to consider problems with your stomach - GERD, Gall Bladder and just a all around work-up for any intestinal disorders.
I do not know of many people with as many physical problems as you that would not feel anxious. People who are dx with physical disorders/disease often develop generalized anxiety from worrying about their health.
Anxiety can also cause physical sx which makes it hard for the Drs. to determine what is going on.
No list is all inclusive, but here are the common anxiety symptoms as they are often described.
Variations in heart activity: faster, slower, skipping, louder
Feeling light headed and/or dizzy
Labored and impaired breathing
Pain and/or heaviness in the chest
Numbness and/or tingling in the toes, fingers, and scalp
Urge to run
Voice cracking or trembling
Various pains: back pain, headache
Urge to urinate or have a bowel movement
Feelings of head expansion or contraction
about now you are thinking but all of these sx could also be caused by physical problems and you are right.
Keep on seeing your Dr. or look for second opinion to sort out what is going on.
Coming here and sharing with us is always a good thing so keep us posted on how you are doing.
