Strange Symptoms Ruining My Life
I have a ton of issues going on that my doctor doesn't seem very keen to investigate. I'm on here hoping to get some feedback and maybe a push in the right direction towards figuring out what is going on with me.
First I'll give you some background. I am a 31 year old female, 5' 3" 200lbs so definitely overweight. I don't smoke or drink and I don't use illicite drugs. Medically I have diagnosed fibromyalgia which is not currently under any sort of treatment. I have panic disorder for which I take Prozac and Klonopin (prn). I also have chronic migraines, digestive issues and inappropriate sinus tachycardia for which I take Toprol XL. Recent chronic UTI that has been resolved. I do also have a birth control implant which has been in place for 6 years.
Ive been living with most of these conditions for so long that they are just kind of part of my everyday life. However, most recently, I've been having a very strange set of symptoms that have me perplexed. Namely. what feels to me like an adrenalin rush. At least that's the only word I know to describe it. Sort of a very warm sensation that washes over me quickly. As though hot water is suddenly running through my veins. I also get very shaky at the same time and about half the time I get very sweaty, mostly in the hands but it effects my whole body. Similar to when I have a panic attack but not quite the same. It's most likely to happen when I wake up and just after eating. Unlike my typical panic attacks, my heart rate does not increase during these episodes very much at all and my blood pressure remains perfect. My pupils do not dilate although I do get very pale lips and tingling in hands sometimes. Once the episode begins to resolve which can be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours, I feel tired and usually get a headache. The episodes also often come and go with just a few minutes in between the waves of that hot feeling and then they slowly get less intense each time before they stop altogether.
I have had routine blood tests, CBC, TSH Cascade, Metabolic panel all mostly normal aside from sometimes having slightly low sodium levels and often my WBC are mildly increased. Ive also been checked for diabetes and an A1C of 5.1 says no diabetes. Blood insulin levels were perfect as well. I've had extensive non-invasive testing on my heart including an implantable loop monitor and an echo and all is well there aside from the tachycardia and some PACs.
Now since the time that these newest symptoms showed up I slowly noticed a few others that got worse over time. For instance I can't seem to lose weight no matter what I do, my body hair has become thick and I also now have facial hair and chest/belly hair which I never had before. It's not terrible. I don't look like a bearded lady but it's certainly bad enough that other people notice. I've not had a menstrual cycle in about 5 years aside from very rare spotting.
That's all I can think to include right now, but if there are any questions I can answer them to the best of my ability. Any help that anyone can provide no matter how small will be so very much appreciated. Thank you in advance for reading this and I apologize for the long winded post.
