How Many symptoms do u have, lets compare

The one I have to add to this is one that is most bothersome for me, obcessive thoughts about my breathing and a smothering feeling at times .... other than that, I can honestly say I suffer from several: 1,2,4,9,10,11,12,13,16,20,21,23,26,27,29 ,30,31

I had blood work, lung xrays, EKG etc, which all, thankfully came back negative for any lung or cardia disease. But still I am suffering to the point that I have been home bound for over 3 months now.

There has to be an answer ... I am blessed that I have a wonderful husband who, although may not understand completely, does try.

So how many do u have, what are u doin to ease them? Please add any that u experience that arent listed.

You might very well be suffering thyroid disease. Classic symptoms of hypothyroid.

Re: How Many symptoms do u have, lets compare

I have mild night sweats, palpitations, anxiety, sudden tears, mild blues, (I hope they stay mild), I can't remember the last time I slept through the night. Generally this doesn't bother me too much because I can nearly always get back to sleep quickly, and it's usually deep enough sleep. I hope it doesn't get worse but of course it may. I pee a bit when I laugh or cough sometimes so that is probably incontinence. I have gastrointestinal problems, acid reflux plus general intestinal gassiness. I get a lot more headaches than I'm used to.

Does anyone have weird pains coming out of nowhere? I woke up this morning and got a sudden sharp pain in the middle of my back, also had one left side of my chest this morning. I suppose it could be related to acid reflux, but it didn't feel like it. They freak me out more than anything else because they don't fit the symptom list, I know joint pains are to be expected but these are more like sudden jabs of pain from out of the blue.

I have bad posture (head forward), so it's occurred to me this may have something to do with it. But it's hard to tell.
