Re: Mystery Diagnosis - Help!

I too have all the aches and pains but i also have such
bad anxiety/panic attacks that i don't know what to do.
I am constantly crying,worrying,and thinking i am dying
everything hurts and my mind is always thinking it's gonig
to pass out. I get blurry vision when i feel this way. I am
sometimes able to control it alittle but usually it goes full
blown til i either need to go to the ER or i think i am dying
and run around waiting to pass out. This is some scary chit
for me. I have been going through this very very hard for the
pass year and it is not getting any better.
I can tell you that i get major aches and when i get one i usually
think the worse so all the others start.
Chest pain and back pain and stomach and arms and legs...chain
reaction...then anxiety, OMG i hope someone can help me soon..
I feel like there is no sense in living this way anymore..My life is
so not living as it is what's the difference?

Re: Mystery Diagnosis - Help!

This post is many months ago, yet I have the same exact symptoms, including being pre-diabetic, have sinus/allergic rhinitis that I have laser surgery for, yet the dizziness, feeling like I am going to blackout, my head feeling heavy, nausea, sleep disturbances, etc..

I am having alot of tests done at a research hospital in Tokyo, Japan.... Now that I have health insurance I am going to find out what this is because I have had this for so many years with lost opportunites socially and professionally...

I am seeing a neurologist next week; my MRI and neck X-ray and all antibody blood test came out negative... The only positive red flag was a low "complementary C4" test which indicates a possible "collagen disease such as lupus or other autoimmune disorder. Yet because all the other tests are normal, I have no diagnosis alike you...

I wonder too if its Lyme Disease or another rare infectious disease...

Please let us know how you have been, and I will keep you posted as well...

Please talk to your doctor about being treated for the anxiety. Anxiety and panic attacks can cause all of our symptoms. You shouldn't have to feel this way all the time, so talk to your doctor. I wish you all the best!

Re: Mystery Diagnosis - Help!

I don't believe its just anxiety; some anxiety meds can relieve some of the some symptoms, yet anxiety-like symptoms can be an indication of many conditions, such as prediabetes, lupus, etc...

Jessica how are you?

If you can please list all of the symptoms in a list form; this would make it easier to read your post...

Re: Mystery Diagnosis - Help!

some of the things you mention happened to me over a period of 2 months 4 years ago. And NO ONE, not even an infectious disease specialist could come up with a diagnosis. but what was wrong with me? I am still not sure and it scares me.
We were on vacation in Florida at the beach:
one afternoon I came down with teeth chattering chills,
muscle and bone aches so bad I would cry,
fever every day starting around 11 am,
fever from 100-103.3.
Nothing but motrin helped me and no one could cure me.
i lost 15 lbs in a few weeks from not eating much and of course fever will take a toll on you. I basically lived on gatorade and saltines for two months.
My doc was at the point of MRIs he said he had tested me for everything he could think of. He thought it was probably cancer. but as suddenly as it started it went away...
Mine is most likely a virus or bacteria like Lyme... and it flares up due to stress. I did have lyme 12 years ago when we lived near a grove of woods with deer.

i suspect that something is definitely wrong with you, just like with me, but my body healed itself, at least temporarily. I have not had another flare up in 3 years.
Do my symptoms sound similar to yours? Lyme is what most people have said to me. It can be pretty nasty...
Keep in touch, ok?
