I'm not sure what is going on. I have had anxiety attacks for 15 years. I know ALL of the symptoms of stress/anxiety attacks.
I went to the ER room with an "attack" of some sort, last month.
They done blood tests, liver function tests, chest x-ray, abdomen x-rays, EKG, and found nothing wrong. The doctor called it stress, and sent me home.
I am so tired, my voice is so tired it strains my throat to talk. Kind of like my throat is fatigued. I'm almost too tired to talk. It wears me out to talk too much. I also feel hoarse alot.
My lower back suddenly began hurting, if I'm not leaning back on something.
There is also a pressure on my chest at times, like a 2-ton weight.
I am so exhausted all the time for a month now. I can barely walk across the room. I feel so tired. When I lay down, I usually go right to sleep, like within 5 minutes of laying down, this is not normal for me. I used to lay in bed and watch movies, and not pass out.
I feel just like I have the flu. I am aching all over, my joints ache, and I am chilled, very cold!
My temp. is running 97.7 and below. When I first wake up it is around 95.5.
The most bothersome symptom, is this "prickly" feeling I am having all over my body! Especially under my clothes. If I take my shirt off, it relieves it somewhat.
I sometimes feel like I am sunburned as well. But when I look in the mirror, my skin looks perfectly normal.
I also have sharp pains shoot through my abdomen occasionally.
I am so scared. The doctor says stress, but I have had SEVERE stress/anxiety for so long, I know how that feels.. this is not it. All these NEW symptoms, hit me out of the blue one day, and have been with me since, for a month.
Does this sound like CFS? I was told by my Aunt that it could be.
I had just had a difficult tooth extraction, 2 weeks prior to the onset of these symptoms. I had "flu-like symptoms" for 2 days after my extraction, they subsided at that point. Then a week later, all of this hit me, the "flu-like" feeling returned, and won't go away!!
thanks for any replies, as I feel like I am crazy, because the doctor said nothing is wrong...and I know I feel different, and there IS something wrong.
