sick for 7 weeks
I don't know where to start but I feel better after reading some threads. I was diagnosed with GERD about 3 years ago. When the Dr. first diagnosed me and told me this was related to my stomach I did not believe him. Of course the medicine he put me on made me feel better. Once I felt better I stopped the med. I do not drink coffee and try not to eat chocolate!!
After not feeling symptoms to extreme for so long I guess I forgot what it felt like. I started feeling sick 7 weeks ago. I was done eating dinner and all of a sudden I felt weird. Left side of my cheek felt knumb and I just did not feel right thru my whole body. First Dr. said it was anxiety, 2nd trip I told her that I am under less stress now than ever in my life. I also realized that some of the tea I was drinking had caffeine and this feeling in my face has happened before from caffeine. Here I thought that just stopping the tea would make me feel better after a while. Well it did not, things got worse. I have been in and out of Dr.s office, off and on the phone freaking out, and in the emergency room. Good thing I have a very understanding boyfriend. The emergency trip was for something I never experienced. My whole body felt jittery/chilled to the point of not being able to sleep. When I jumped out of bed it stopped. I never have problems sleeping.The dr. said my symptoms did not make sense and scheduled me for an MRI. (after a cat scan and EKG that was normal). Saturday while I was at work I started thinking about everything as a whole, deep pain in my chest, not being able to take a full deep breath, whole body rushes, knumb feeling around my sinus, and not sure how to explain this feeling around my face (eyes, mouth, sometimes neck) and of course diarrhea. I realized this was probably from my GERD since I have some of the same symptoms as b4. I started taking my medicine again and hope to feel normal soon. I have been so stressed, cry all the time, and thought I was going to die. I have said so many times "I'm not crazy and I know what I'm feeling".
I'll let you all know how it goes.
