My dear Doctors and Medical Students at service,

Firt and foremost, I would like to thank for the efforts put in here by taking your time to answer all our questions.

I have been having a serious medical condition which has gone undetected by these so called Doctors in my country who work only for money not for curing or diagnosing the illness. This is the issue I have.

For the last 1 year, I have been having breathing difficulties which I didn't take much seriously because I thought, it will just go off but to see what, it is increasing day by day. Difficulty in breathing starts at the back. I have to take a deep breath to release in order function the other breath smoothly. Day by day, I am becoming fatigue. My vision is becoming double. My heart beat is increasing. Giddiness. I feel I am getting pushed. Now, I am not having proper motion for the last 4 weeks.

These are the tests I have done so far. FBC, LUNG FUNCTION TEST URINE, LIVE PROFILE, KIDNEY FUNCTION TEST, ECG, ECHO, STRESS TEST (EXCERCISE ECG), BILIRUBIN, SERUM CALCIUM, EEG. According to doctors, they are normal. I am under medication for Epilepsy for the last 25 years. Right now, I am taking medication for Epilepsy, Hypertension and Cholesterol. I have 3 questions.

1) What is my undiognosed illness?
2) Can these drugs influence my blood tests?

Please let me know. I am helpless.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
In the presence of normal reports these symptoms point towards somatization disorder as you have chronic disease as well.I would suggest you to keep your nerves strong and start low dose SSRI like escitalopram to settle the issue.
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
