Symptoms: Weakness, Fatigue, Eye Problems

Sad i'm sorry I can't help - but I know how you feel. You've explained alot of what I have been going through. I've had a ton of tests and other than the tumor they found on my spine - there is "nothing wrong" i'm tired of doctors telling me there's "nothing wrong" bull crap. I wouldn't feel like I just got into a car wreck if there wasn't anything wrong! My main concern is trying to explain to doctors about the weird "pressure" feeling I get in my head, like it's going to just explode. I feel like i'm being strangled I guess. It's a very hard thing to explain. I, too have been tested for lyme's, west nile, and a dozen other problems. I do have endometreosis, and will probably have to have a hysterectomy eventually - but I have to have this tumor out first. I'm worried about ms or a heart problem or whatever. Another thing I have is severe joint aches. All I know is i'm tired of it and we need some help here huh? If you find anything out please let me know and i'll do the same. The symptoms you describe hit it on the head - weakness, fatigue, eye problems, I can't think of what I want to say, and I am very spacy, tired and feel like I don't sleep - although I know I do. Among other weird stuff. Anyway I hope we can find out what this is......I wish doctors would stop looking at all the "normal" problems and start trying to figure out this stuff.....I'm tired of them looking at me like i'm dreaming. Or trying to prescribe prozac, lol. Good luck, honey. Oh and something else i'm not sure if you've had checked out - i've had these symptoms for about 2 years now and when they first showed up I didn't have health insurance. So I took it upon myself and did a full blood panel (normal) but also did a ana panel - that came back abnormal. I started to feel better - sort of- so I didn't persue it. Now that I have insurance my doctor seemed to think that was significant and that I should get more tests. We'll see - I have a follow up with him next week. So if anything shows up for those tests i'll re-post. This is getting worse and it's scaring the hell out of me.

Thank you so very much for you input! Yes we keep in touch with each doctor visit if anything else new is found. Jan 30 I see a cardiologist because of the chemical stress test showing some ischemia in the front of my heart and I still have chest pains, I told my gp about dercums disease , he looked it up on the internet and decided to refer me to a rheumtologist that appointment is on valentines day, so until then I just sit and wait. But if there is any changes I will post here too. Thanks again for you input.

Have you been tested for multiple sclerosis or thyroid disease. There are so many auto-immune diseases that it could be. I hope you find an answer soon.

Chrystalpony, have you been tested for toxic unbound metals?

There's a home-test if you're not in the mood for a clinic.

Have you tried any heavy metal detox products or treatments?

I did have mris done and thyroid was found to have a "nodule" one on both sides but the endocrinologist said there was nothing to worry about, I was tested for cushings, the 24 hour urine came back negative. I will check out the toxic unbound metals test. Haven't tried anything like that, I will be seeing a rheumatologist next month. And a cardiologist in a couple of weeks

I am not positive if I was tested for ms or not, I seen an infectious disease doctor and neurologist about 3 years ago, they both put me through all kinds of test from mri to shocking my muscles, they didn't find anything at that time. I can't work at all now. So I am desparately going back to doctors trying to find out what is happening, I did find some information on a disease called dercums, which I do have fatty lumps popping up all over me. Who knows, I am just worried it is going to be at autopsy when they finally find out what is going on.
