    Do these symptoms sound familiar?

    Trying to help my son....

    July 2017 - Babesia (tick borne illness) treated, infection gone (repeated negatives)

    Aug 2017 - Apr 2018 fading fatigue, but 2 lingering issues fatigue mid-day and strange fatigue EVERY time after I eat, more energy at night.

    May 2018 - Last 16 days
    Day 1 hit like a ton of bricks ...shortness of breath/fatigue/heart palps
    Day 3 doctor blood tests all negative, free cortisol/TSH negative EKG negative
    Day 5 flu like symptoms come on (just massive fatigue and aches)
    Day 6 back to doctor puts him on 5 days prednisone, more blood tests
    Day 8 flu symptoms lift
    Day 11..pulmonary dr. no lung issues or allergies, later that day extreme shortness of breath and off to the ER, blood tests, EKG/EchoCard/CT scan heart/lungs negative
    Day 12...16
    Constant heart palps chest up to neck and head
    Shortness of breath 24x7
    Feel worst waking up (sleep fine)
    Eating is torture, within a few minutes very fatigued then within 30 minutes it lifts a bit
    Wicked head rush/heart palps when I stand up pulse races
    afternoon I feel well enough to sit on couch, night is better

    he is resigned to sitting on couch quietly and getting up every 45 minutes to walk around the house. primary is convinced this is anxiety/depression, won't even talk endocrinologist because TSH/Free cortisol is fine.

    seems impossible to get an appt. with an endo. without referral. completely lost at what to do next.
