    Try a pulmonologist. Maybe it could be your lungs. A decrease in oxygen will definitely show those symptoms.

    I know how you feel..i have most of your symptoms chronically everyday, all day. Only thing i can tell you is get tested for lyme. Apparently thats what i have and if you get a negative blood test result, just know that doesnt necessarily mean you dont have it. Dont stop searching for answers. I know it sucks bad but hang in there.

    There is lyme disease everywhere. Look up my lyme disease symptoms. People from california get lyme disease. So it can definitely happen and you might not even know you got bit. Just check it out. Dont take no for an answer. Youll find the answers might just take some time. Until then hang in there and godspeed.

    Now thats a long story lol. But they do help if thats what it is. Dont be surprised if your doc tells you your crazy either and there is no such thing as lyme or anything like that. Just do your research on lyme on your own. To be treated for lyme you need to find a lyme literate doctor. Look at the lyme disease board on here..alot of great people. Also, keep searching for other answers and let your doc do all the tests to rule out other stuff. Hang in there man..you are DEF not alone and it can be very scary. Just take it one day at a time and do the best you can.

    Re: Please read!! Lightheaded/faint feeling and brain fog

    Well no, theyve actually gotten worse from going so long without any treatment. BUT with that being said its been a long road from doc to doc saying i dunno, your just stressed out etc etc. Its been going on for 4 years for me. But dont look at that and let it scare you. Dont get me wrong it has sucked bad, but my situation has been pretty unique. I didnt have anyone to say hey, check on lyme disease, so i went a very long time before i even knew. But im not saying thats whats wrong with you but i am saying keep pushing the docs man..stay on them. You know your body and you know it aint right..dont let anyone tell you different. Keep researching and doing what your doing. Youll get there.

    Re: Please read!! Lightheaded/faint feeling and brain fog

    It sounds like lyme to me. There is a lab in california called Igenix. Google there phone number and call them. The will send you a kit. Get your blood drawn and send it back to them. Right now they are the best lab to diagnose lyme. Even if it comes our negative by cdc or igenix standards still does not mean you dont have it. You have to look at the positive bands. Second thng is you must go to a lyme literate dr ASAP.
    Good luck and let us know how you do.
