User Profile
I have posted here before and really think my symptoms are getting a lot worse.I have had upper left abdominal pain on and off for the last 2 years. I have had and endo, colonoscopy, barium swallow test, ct scan with and without contrast. In the last week been experiencing shortness of breath, heart palpatations, shakiness, sweating, headaches, feeling of fullness in left nasal cavity, constant bloddy noses and dizziness. Over the last week symptoms have been getting extremely bad. They include really dry itchy skin especially on the back of the neck, absolutely no appetite I mean I can't eat anything. When I do try to eat something within a few min of swallowing food my heart starts racing and it feels like my blood sugar either plummets or increases I can't tell. I start shaking excessively and break out in a pouring sweat and have a hard time catching my breath. It honestly feel likes my body's metabolism is shutting down.Im really scared my gp says there are no more tests to run.

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health Forum.

From the history provided it seems that you have a form of connective tissue disorder which may need tests to rule out immune system disorders.

You might benefit by consulting a immunologist or a rheumatologist for further diagnosis and treatment.

I hope this helps.
