My body is rebelling
I have been trying to figure out what is going on with my body for some time. I am on my third doctor in the past 3 years. At first, I had gained a lot of weight which was strange for me because before I had my son at age 27 I weighed less than 100 pounds all my life. Even after I gave birth I went down to 110 about 8 months after. In 2005 I was diagnosed with Tourrette's Syndrome and my doc put me on Risperdal. Within 6 weeks I gained 15 pounds. My doc then put me on Abilify instead but I still continued to gain. Not as quickly but it was still annoying. By 2008 I weighed around 140 or so and by 2011 I had gone up to 155. At this point I signed up for a martial arts class and went 3-4 times per week. Still I continued to gain, going up to 157. I took a break from class and since I have gone up to 164. I am only 5 feet tall. That's not the worst of it. In 2010 I started sweating a lot, even when I was doing simple things like washing dishes or folding clothes. This has gotten so bad that I don't even go outside during the summer. When I clean house I have to wear a bandana on my head or the sweat falls into my eyes. Along with all this I have suffered for years with daytime sleepiness yet I can't fall asleep at night. I also have chronic headaches, which started about 6 months ago. My vision has become blurry in the past 3 months. And to top it off, I now have rashes that have spread all over my mid-section. I am getting very frustrated because nobody seems to know what is going on. I figure more than likely, I have more than one issue going on but it scares me to think that with the weight gain even though I have no appetite, will continue to get worse and put strain on my cardiovascular system. Any help would be appreciated. I'll take sympathy as well at this point, ha ha.
