I am going throught the exact same things. Headache, dizzyness, hight headedness, sleepyness. I Just went and got blood taken today. I am scared at how it is going to turn out. Sometimes I feel like someone is sitting on my chest and I can't breathe. I hate it, the bad part is, is that it has only started to happen within the last 3 weeks, before that I was fine. And now everything is going on. I am scared and I hate all of this. I am right up there with you so if you ever need anyone to talk to please feel free to write. thank you.
: : Hi Ephiny,
: I have been experiencing the exact same symptoms. It is very hard to discribe as you noted. I have undergone every type of test there is and all the results have come back negative. I have a difficult time concentrating at times as well and it gets me down. Does that ever happen to you? The doctor did tell me that I am anemic so I take iron pills 3x's a day and also I have to take a B12 shot once a month. At times it helps but it doesn't keep the symptoms totally away. I am a bit foggy now as a matter of a fact. When it's really bad, I can't even drive. Oh well, I certainly hope there is cure out there. If you find one, please let me know. Take care and yu are in my prayers! Connie
