Topic: Long list of symptoms
i am having some sudden debilitating health effects as of the past 2 month or so. I'm a 22 year old male, I get about 1 hour of cardio every week, no known allergies, no medications, no history of illness since my tonsillectomy when i was 4. I get sick once every two years and when i do, it is VERY mild, my immune system is quite healthy as far as I know. Over the past two months, I have gone downhill rapidly. I'm 5'10 200lbs. I do not smoke. I do not drink. I do not do drugs. I dont always drink coffee, or consume caffeine.
My most prevalent symptom is my constant lethargy. I always get 6-8 hours of sleep, and I feel exactly the same no matter what changes is my diet. I also feel very very hot from time to time, and i sweat constantly. My hands are sweaty 100% of the time, and my whole body sweats excessively and suddenly for 5 minutes or so at a time on average. Headaches every other day, which do not go away and are quite painful compared to the "norm". My emotions are all over the place. I am usually quite happy, rarely irritable, never angry, etc. Lately I have been very very depressed suddenly, i am ALWAYS frustrated when I'm tired, which causes me to get anxious and then enraged shortly after. My memory is usually far above average, but lately i struggle to recall simple things, whether they are stored long term or short. My thinking is clouded constantly, and the only time I can really perform socially is immediately after caffeine takes effect, and those effects are short lived. Lately, coffee doesnt even have a minimal effect on my energy level. The back of my neck is in constant dull pain. My blood pressure goes from normal to high every time its checked.(i do have a genetic predisposition to hypertension) My eyes are dry often. I get dull pain in the back of my eyes at least once a week. I have been sneezing more often than normal. Just about everything I eat upsets my stomach. I get a lot of gas, which has never been a problem before. My stool is ALWAYS soft(coffee or not) I get very tired after I eat. No coughing, no chest pain, haven't noticed shortness of breath. My EKG was perfect. My blood test abnormalities: 4.9 Albumin. 103 Cholesterol LDL. 4.65 Red Blood Cell. Family doctor said it was quite normal. I dont remember the exact number but he said that my heart rate was a little low each time he checked, but normal for a male my age that gets a lot of exercise, which i do not.
I have changed my eating habits constantly trying to notice an effect; nothing. I stopped taking multivitamins; no effect. I have tried to workout more, but I get very fatigued and the back of my neck hurts when I do weight training of any kind. the front of my neck near my collar bone pulsates very very hard when I do cardio. i can feel and hear my heartbeat in an intense way. The feeling of my heartbeat is very unusual for me also, and it happens at times when i'm not doing very intense cardio. I have scheduled an appointment with an endocrinologist. Thyroid problems were not evident through blood testing. I have slept on my stomach for my entire life and I'm trying to change that but my neck and back feel uncomfotable and i always shift back to my stomach. I have noticed what looks like mold growth in my bedroom ONLY with a blacklight. I dont have a lot of the symptoms of mold exposure. I dont get itchy skin, itchy eyes, coughing, sore throat, lung pain, etc. i have since cleaned the area that i noticed near the blacklight. I did have a bad habit of drinking 5 hour energy drinks. I drank 7-10 per week, for about 5 months, but haven't had one in 3 months or so. My lethargy symptom may have started around the time I started taking them and i just used them to counteract the effect. My sex drive is up and down. I'm not sure when the emotional symptoms started, but I can say with confidence that they are VERY unusual. I am very very rarely in a happy energetic mood. Starting sometime in the 2011, i started crying over movies, getting instantly depressed for no reason and crying, and being very very sensitive with my relationships. Sometimes I feel like I'm in love with my current girlfriend, and sometimes I dont really care at all. I have a history of social anxiety, SSRI's do not work. I have since beaten most of my social anxiety by challenging my irrational thoughts, but my anxiety has come back with intensity. When I get anxious i become very aggrivated and often enraged, and my anger lasts for several hours at times. If i rub my hand gently through my hair, quite a lot comes out. Minimal joint pain.
I may be sounding like a hypocondriac with all these symptoms, and many may be unrelated to my actual problem, but I didn't want to leave anything out. I have never complained about anything as far as my health goes until now. The only surgery I have had was a tonsillectomy and I also had my adenoids removed at that time. I have never been hospitalized for any reason before or since. Please help me, I am going to lose my job!
