I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Have you experienced dizzines, lightheadedness, and brain fog and actually been diagnosed with something? I would love to hear any and all responses.

Thank you for your time and for reading!!

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Only thing that does that to me is if either my blood sugar goes low or BP goes low. It only last for a few seconds/minutes, but that is it.

Have you discussed this with a Dr. or on any meds. that could do this?

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Thank you for responding.

I feel like I've been a pinball machine bouncing around to different specialists over this. No one can seem to figure it out. All my tests (EKG, ENG, MRI-brain and IAC, pulmonary function, echo, echo stress) they are all coming back fine. In the meantime, I feel like I'm dying and completely miserable. I was just seeing if anyone else had experienced anything similar. I wonder if they have checked my blood sugar.... I know they do the pressure at every appointment and mine does tend to be fairly low, maybe its been that this whole time.

Thanks again for responding.

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Well it sounds like you have had good care and quite a few tests, so could be the old BP. I know when it happens to me I just sit and wait it out if it lasts a few minutes. Next Dr. visit ask about the BS as well.

Hope you feel better soon...JJ...

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

I'd be willing to bet they checked your blood sugar. Have you looked at food allergies or Candida? (And don't let any doctor tell you that Candida is BS)

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Hey guys.... thanks for the responses.

Possibly allergies, you know, I actually went to an allergist because I had the same thought and he was so rude. He told me that my symptoms did not sound allergy related and that i was wasting my time and his by being there!!! rude.

what is candida? Possibly food allergies. I know it's not celiac, I could have swore I had that but i was tested from my blood and an endoscopy, so, maybe some other food allergy.

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Candida is a yeast infection that lives within us all. You do have a lot of the symptoms:

Frequent stomach pains and some digestion problems. Skin problems like skin infections or psoriasis and acne. Foggy brain or trouble concentrating plus constant tiredness and exhaustion. You can also have anxiety, mood swings, irritability and headaches plus itchy skin. Do you crave sweets?

Do a search on it and see what you think. I'll be honest, I never heard of it till I came here and saw so many posts about it.

Good luck...JJ...

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Thanks JJ, yeah I've never heard of it. Thanks for that information. I have some of those other things you mention actually. itchy, irritability and YES, I crave sweets all the time, I bet I consume more sugar than I do real food and yes I know that's not good either.

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Hypothyroidism can do all that. My persistent brain fog and dizziness has been gone since my thyroid levels stabilized. Mood is very dependent on adequate thyroid levels, too. The list of symptoms is staggeringly long.

Be aware --- Many doctors don't recognize hypoT when they see it. They either don't order the right tests, enough of them, or don't understand how to interpret the results. Make sure you've had at least TSH and free T4 tests. If you haven't, insist they be done. If TSH is higher than 2 or if FT4 is lower than the middle of its range, they aren't "normal", even if your MD says so.

Re: I want to know your diagnosis, please.

Jenay413, thank you. I actually did go to an ENT who did several tests and we ruled that out. I wish it had been that simple for me, this has been miserable.

Midwest1- thanks . I haven't been to an endocrinologist yet, haha, maybe the one specialist i haven't visited. I will look into this as well, I may have the hyper kind, I've lost weight and wasn't weighing much to begin with, so definately a possibility too.
