What do these symptoms mean?
I have the doctors stumped. I am only posting here because of some of the symptoms but I haven't been diagnosed with anything.
I am a 24 year old female. Since late 2010, I have been experiencing dizzy episodes and if I haven't eaten for a couple of hours I always begin to feel very faint and weak. Then when I eat, I feel ridiculously drowsy, as if I have just eaten a 3 course meal, when in fact I've only had a sandwich/crisps/piece of fruit or something. This now happens every day and is more noticeable after lunch (maybe because I have to continue working afterwards). Sometimes I can barely keep my eyes open. I also get like a 'foggy'/spaced out feeling in my head.
Then in June this year, I started to lose the sensation in some parts of my skin and lose spots of my near-central vision. Most of the skin sensation has now returned but my vision has only deteriorated since then and I'm absolutely terrified. The missing spots are particularly noticeable when looking at text or anything with patterns but I'm always aware of it. My corrected vision has also got worse, both for distance and close up and I have snowy vision. The symptoms are in both eyes but worse in the left.
I have also developed more and more little veins in the white part of my eyes, which don't go away. A while back I also developed a lot of thread veins on my right thigh. The doctor said this could be due to the pill (I came off that about 12 months ago but the veins have never decreased).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I have had an MRI and LOADS of eye examinations but they can't see anything (although at one time they thought I had some bleeding at the back of my eye).
