I know itís a long post but please read on.
I have been ill now for roughly 3 years, I have been on a constant mission around various Drís to the point were I thought I was possibly insane and its all in my head. I have been told its possibly anxiety, depression and been given antidepressants and anxiety meds.
I have been to a neurologist (MRI Normal), ENT (Sinus OP, feel no better), had endoscopies done (Oesophagus inflammation) and a handful of visits to my family Dr (No help)
I have been hunting down now a good private Dr to find out exactly what is going on, on my hunting someone has told me that it sounds very like Chronic fatigue, I almost dismissed this but after reading symptoms on the web I am very surprised as to how bad it can make you feel.
Here are my symptoms, what do you think?
Feeling terrible ill everyday (Quite hard to explain)
Yawning (Sometimes in frequent bursts)
Headache & Head pressure
Foggy or fuzzy dreamy headed (Daily)
Neck pressure and pain
Terrible Acid reflux (Oesophagus inflammation, Recent endoscopy)
Various stomach pain and toilet trouble
Heavy & Forceful Heartbeat (BP Normal though)
Ongoing Sinus Problems (Inflammation)
Worsened Allergy symptoms (Recent allergy test showed bad dust & animal dander)
Sneezing, Cough, I had Asthma as child and it feels like its coming back
Anxiety (On and off)
Chest & Muscle pain
Depression (Twice in the 3 years sudden disabling depression, medication reaction? )
Sensitivity to some medication (Omeprazole for acid reflux causes anxiety and palpitation, possible depression, and dosulepin for anxiety makes me dreamy headed and fatigued worse)
Alcohol intolerance (Cant enjoy a few beers anymore, kills me the next day)
Sleep (Naps make me feel worse and are un refreshing, I can sleep for 12 hours and still feel like carp)
Complete lack of motivation
Short Term memory problems (Long term is excellent though)
Jaw pain and clicking
More and more mood swings even though I am a very chilled out person
Sometimes I feel better after eating around lunch time, sometimes I feel a little better after necking a Red Bull, although that doesnít seem to work anymore. Strangely I have noticed that I feel better at night time, infact I have even found energy to exercise at 11pm just because I feel half decent even though I have suffered all day.
I am booked for an excellent private Dr next week, should I present him with my list? I would like to rule out heart problems first (I am 28 Male). Should I ask him about Chronic fatigue or just see what he comes up with?
Many thanks for your time, I know itís a long read
