    Buzzing/twitching muscles,Dizziness,Uncontrolled heart and more.Thyroid?

    Hi I have put the following in General health but thought I may get some answers here as well. Although my Thyroid function seems ok from the tests I have had done some of the symptoms that are described by other users here sound very similar to my own. Any ideas appreciated.

    I am a 29 year old male.

    About 3 months ago I went to bed and felt that my heart was very uncontrolled and on occasion was adding an occasional extra beat, below are the symptoms that have developed over the next 3 months

    Very slight dizziness (this started about 4 weeks before the following)

    Felling of uncontrolled heart beat with the occasional extra beat occurring when I go to bed. The heart beat does not quicken or slow during these periods although it beat's with a stronger pulse than normal.
    Vague abdominal pains and constipation
    Pain around my left Kidney that seems to come from my spine with some muscle twitching
    Slight pains in my back and neck
    Increased dizziness and light headiness with a lack of concentration.
    Vague tightness like a chesty cold/cough (though it is not) in my upper lungs chest leading to the base of my neck.
    What feels like an internal shivering sensation in my upper body and usually occurs at night and first thing in the morning.
    Ear pains with numbness in the right ear, a sharp stinging pain that shoots down my eustuen tubes
    Stinging sore throat that has some connection the eustian tube stinging, some mouth ulcers. Some tinnitus sounds.
    Infected sweat glands on my chest and shoulders (Penicillin based antibiotic prescribed)
    Increasing twitches through out my body.
    Increasing neck pains
    Increasing tinnitus sounds
    What feels like a buzzing sensation in my legs, this has spread to my arms and occasionally other areas such as my scalp.
    10 min episode of complete uncontrolled muscle twitching mostly in my legs and slightly more to the left side.

    My current symptoms as I write are Extreme light headiness, muscle twitching and buzzing, upper chest pains and tightness, slightly uncontrolled heart sensations, slight neck and back pains, general lack of energy.

    I have seen the following specialists ENT and Endocrinologist I have an appointment with a Neurologist next week.

    I have had a number of tests which include so far

    3 ECG's 2 were normal the other had a slight third beat but I was told it was ok.
    Blood tests for Red and white blood count which come out as normal, low colestorol count, normal Thyroid function.
    Normal blood pressure
    MRI on my head, there were know sign's of MS, Acoustic neuroma etc.
    MRI on my spine, there was slight bulging of the discs L4 and L5 but with no impingement of the spinal cord through out.
    Chest X-ray which was ok
    Lower abdominal ultrasound which is ok
    Barium X-ray for stomach and hernia problems which was ok.
    Ear tests that include hearing and pressure slight hearing loss on the right side.

    Vestibular balance testing there is a 9% loss on the right side.

    And that is it so far

    I am beginning to think that I could be stuck like this for some time and I donít see how I can carry on working much longer as I just feel so much worse when I am stuck in front of a computer for 10 hours a day. Can any one think what it could be? all I can think of for my next tests are Addison's disease, Pernicious Anaemia (this runs in my family though I am a bit to young to have this at the moment) Some kind of test for electrolyte imbalances, maybe some form for brain and muscle nervous system type tests.

    Please can anyone help. C

    It sounds very much like hyperthyroidism, the result of an overactive thyroid gland. Thyroid test results are very much open to skilled interpretation and are very subjective. There is no "normal".
    Post your thyroid test results and lab ranges here, if you want to. Someone may be able to tell if your docs are missing something important.

    Charlie Boy,

    Maybe some of your problems may be caused from being in front of your computer for so many hours. I know of a few people who can't stay on their computer very long because it causes similar problems such as the vibration, and sometime burning brain, electrical sensation going down their legs. You may have a problem with electro magnetic field or something of that sort. Check it out.

    Hi Thanks for the reply's

    I have never been told the actual figures for the Thyroid test, I'll try to get my hands on them next week. What sort of levels are considered to be in the normal range? maybe I am on the egde of what they think is normal but is to high for my own body.

    As for the monitor electromagnetic situation it could be possible, I have been off work for 6 weeks and I still had bad symptoms then. I work with a 24" screen which may pump out quite a bit of radiation. I'll try a LCD monitor next week maybe this will be easier on my mushy brain.
