I'm a bit confused. I've had several odd things going on for quite a while, and one of nurses I work with told me I should get tested for MS. Although I think it sounds more like hypoglycemia? I guess both would fit in with the symptoms, just some I don't have, or I have some that aren't listed. So perhaps it's something completely different?
I'm 25 years old. Female. I smoke... I know! I'm 5' 8" and about 175 lbs.
Maybe these are all connected to the same thing... maybe not.
Shaking hands (I noticed this happens mostly when I don't eat and when I eat, it usually lessens or stops.)
Headaches (Usually worsens throughout the day. But I do work on a computer all day long, mind you.)
Vertigo feeling (And not with sudden changes in position. Randomly. I'll feel as though I'm falling over and will have to 'catch myself' by grabbing ahold of something. Usually lasts for a few seconds and is becoming more frequent.)
Blurred vision/Eye pain (I do wear corrective lenses. But I've had them for about a year and a half and possibly just need to get new ones. I've also stopped wearing them at work as they seem to make my headaches worse.)
Migraines (More of a sharp shooting pain aimed at the temples/eyes.)
Muscle spasms (Mostly in the fingers. Even with eating I can hold out my hand and my fingers will move involuntarily.)
Frequent urination (Possibly just over-active bladder.)
Feeling of anxiousness. (My hands have to be in constant movement. If I'm just standing I'll have to play with my necklace or rings or something, I can't sit them still no matter how hard to try.)
Tiredness (Even though I get my 8 hours of sleep every night, it tends to be restless or even when I do sleep fully I am tired all the time.)
Depression (I'm sure this is completely unrelated, butI think I'm possibly manic. I tend to get depressed for no apparent reason and it can last for days, or just hours.)
Leg pain (Mostly in the ankle and foot. And more specifically my big toe when bending.)
Chest pains (Possibly acid reflux due to smoking.)
Stuttering, slurred speech (Apparently earlier I said drawers when I went to say doors. This happens alot and I'll have to repeat myself. Or I will stop mid sentence and have to start over like I lost my place. Or Slight studdering.)
Thoughts? Opinions? Specific Specialists I should be checking in to?
Any help would be appreciated, as well as ideas as to what all I may/may not have so that I can have an idea of what tests to ask for when I go in. I'd hate to get a line of completely unnecessary tests if there's no way this all fits into something.
Those symptoms definitely fit the bill, one of the dead giveaways are aching eye sockets, which seem to be very specific to this condition. You need to have a GTT done. Hopefully you have a kind doctor who won't laugh at you if you suggest it...
I am an "inbetweener" (that word looks funny),
you know still have kids at home and Mom is needing to be taken care of. Anyway, I typed in some of her ongoing problems which have shown up since back surgery and see that they mirror hypoglycemia... she takes her meds infrequently and never eats enough or drinks enough H2O. I found a good webcite earlier in my search and lost it. Oh well.... any comments?
I have all of these, less the depression, for about 3 years. Got to the point i have to plan my day around food and as I work pretty much housebound in the evenings. Intolerence to alchohol as well, seem to urinate vast volumes at night and sometimes four or five times before i sleep. had all diabetes tests and used a blood sugar monitor, can't find anything wrong. it's been suggested i am overly sensitive to changes in my blood sugar, but no real evidence.
Have you heard of Candida Albicans? All the symptoms you are describing fit it to a T. Most doctors don't recognize this as being a problem but a Yeast problem can and does cause all these symptoms from the toxicity levels it produces. You'll have a hard time finding a doctor to go along with it but if you do get tested for it.
Did you ever get tested for this problem? I was looking up the same symptoms and your post popped up. My mother had that problem (having brain aneurisms) running in my family. I wish she would have gotten tested for that because it was too late when she had those same exact symptoms and that's what it ended up being. Not to scare you of course but wanted to give a heads up
