I have been having some very strange symptoms for the past three years. From my own research, it appears that it could be Multiple Sclerosis but no doctor has even suggested it. Early on, I was diagnosed and treated for Lyme. Symptoms returned. Was diagnosed with mononucleosis as a child. Here's a list of my symptoms.
Brain fog / trouble concentrating.
Disequilibrium / feeling unsteady on feet.
Weakness in arms and legs.
Hypoglycemic even after eating.
Headaches in temples.
Hot flashes or heat intolerance which comes with a hit tingling sensation.
Constant fatigue regardless of time spent sleeping.
Pronounced urge to urinate with little urine output OR normal urge to urinate with hesitation to begin urinating.
Fecal incontinence or anal seepage that usually accompanies brain fog and hot flashes.
Triggers seem to be caffeine (more than 12oz of coffee), less than 6 hours of sleep, eye strain, and heat.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with somatization disorder. Consult psychiatrist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
