    What is wrong with me?

    Hello! First of all, I am a 36 y/o female. I haven't felt well in a long time, but since February things have gotten worse. Here's a brief history of the past 5 months. In February I started feeling like my legs were weak or shaky and I felt off balance. I still feel that way today and it's pretty persistent. I went to a neuro. and he checked for vertigo and weakness and couldn't any. I don't have nystagmus (sp?) I've also had a CT scan of my brain and nothing showed up. I am also soo tired all of the time. It feels like I've had the life sucked out of me. I have 3 little kids. I feel so sorry for them because they have no mother anymore. I'm pretty much a couch potato now because I feel so awful. I've had so many tests and nothing ever shows up. Wish I could just figure this out so I can try to get better. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Hi starbright, Welcome to healthboards, what a cute username you have! Do you know which blood & lab tests that you have had done? In particular were your thyroid & pituitary hormone levels tested? TSH, a thyroid panel? Low thyroid or hypothyroidism can cause fatigue, dry skin, thinning hair & brittle nails & my bff's thyroid was not functioning & blood tests really low & being prescribed thyroid medicine relieved her extreme fatigue. Also, were you tested for chronic fatigue syndrome, Epstein- Barr virus? Vitamin D levels, iron levels?Or lyme disease that is caused by an infected deer tick bite can cause a myriad of symptoms of varying severity including weak limbs & fatigue. I have lumbar back problems & a back workup with spine xrays or better an MRI may reveal a herniated disc pressing on the nerve that affects that leg but more than likely can be associated with pain or pins & needles, numbness in leg or foot as well. Do you have a major medical center or teaching hospital associated with a medical school available to you? Because i personally think that they have diagnosticians & specialists that work together & are more aggressive in finding the cause. I hope that the drs find an explanation soon & that you will be back to normal asap!

    Have you ever asked a doctor if you have Chronic Fatigue??? I have had these symptoms before, and I have CFS. Go to the CFIDS Association of America, and there you can find all info on symptoms, etc. Good luck and I hope you feel better.
