Got a set of symptoms - need diagnosing help!

I have a quick list of things that may or may not be related to a central illness, and I was wondering if anyone had any idea what it might be. Keep in mind some are probably unrelated, here goes:

-Heart murmur

-Minor Liver blockage

-Memory problems**

-Severe recurring Halitosis w/ dry mouth. Odd white growths (or food?) that gets stuck in the back of throat and smell like feces.*

-Recurring growth on the shoulders***

-Frequent headache in the top and rear head region (likely eye strain)

-Obesity (below is stuff likely linked to obesity)
+Hypertension (140/80)
+Acid reflux, especially at night.
+Malaise
+Sensitivity to Light
+Trouble initially falling asleep, restless legs

*occurred after oral sex with a partner with an infection, possibly linked. I also have 4 cavities untreated at the moment.
**Moderate problems with speech recognition and especially new information, information already learned is recalled well, text/pictures/visual memory remain superb. Trouble remembering names numbers.****
***I suspect it has something to do with me frequently sleeping with my head on my shoulders and arms and when the skin breaks they are extremely bloody.
****I did sustain a considerable fall where I landed on the back-of-my-head-first when I was experimenting with snowboarding, I'm wondering if it might be related or if you can just count it as another one for the obesity+depression combo.

I feel stupid, I'm sure there isn't much there and I know I missed a bunch of legitimate stuff I'm not including, but hey I'll see responses and if I've come to the right place maybe I'll revise this post in the afternoon. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Re: Got a set of symptoms - need diagnosing help!

I'll start with one I've had...the mouth problems. It's probably a yeast infection. You mentioned your partner had an infection and the most common vaginal infection in women is yeast. In the mouth it's called "thrush". One of my children was born with it as it was picked up coming through the birth canal. And I have had it as an adult from using a steroid based asthma inhalers.

Treatment is Nystatin lozenges or gargle. It thrives on sugars and milk so avoiding both helps but chances are you'll need the medication to stop it. And it should be treated as it can descend into the lungs and cause a pneumonia that is very hard to get rid of.

good luck with the others................Jenny

Re: Got a set of symptoms - need diagnosing help!

NOt only that. The untreated cavities can cause the bad taste in your mouth. Left untreated they can cause you to have an infection in the tooth requiring a root canal....don't let them go too long.

The obesity will cause high blood pressure and lack of energy. The more weight you carry the less likely you are to do things. It can also be the cause of the acid reflux. Try sleeping with your head elelvated at night to cut down on the problems with that. Taking something for it, and changing your diet to a good healthy one will also help that.

Good luck.

You need to rule out STD's AIDS OR HIV..... then go from there if you feel you have slept with an infected partner. Then go have your growths and MRI ran.
