| | What could be causing these strange symptoms?
I appreciate the opportunity to be here this evening and to get whatever input and suggestions I possibly can. I'm honestly not sure where to post this because quite frankly, anything could be the underlying cause of my symptoms Anyway, here's my deal...
I am a 44 year old male, smoker, ex-drinker who suffers from a number of anxiety disorders but what I have been experiencing does not feel anything like an anxiety disorder at all. I also suffer from GERD/Acid Reflux, IBS and several different animal/pollen allergies. Finally, I'm a recovering alcoholic. However, the symptoms I am about to describe were occurring long before I had many of these other problems.
Anyway, I will generally wake up in the mornings feeling ok. I have a few cups of coffee, do my work, get things done around the house, etc and I only eat one meal each day as a rule (dinner). I feel pretty good up until the point where I have finished dinner and then I begin to experience an elevation in temperature from about 98.6 to 99.2 or even higher. My pulse/heart rate also goes up by about 20 beats per minute and this whole thing lasts several hours. sometimes I also get mild hot flashes or my blood pressure will go up too. Metabolism?. GERD?. IBS?. I just don't know but this has been an ongoing things with me for many years.
So what could be causing this?. It almost never happens until after I've eaten dinner and all of my meals are normal (just regular things most other people eat).
- Thank you for any help I can get on this in advance.
