4987347 tn?1361977937 Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 29 (my father also has it) and around a year and a half ago, I began to experience symptoms of thyroid problems. I had unexplained weight gain that I couldn't lose - which by the way I am VERY active and health conscious (15 lbs gained back and this was after losing 45 - 6 years ago...) I was cold all the time, my voice was raspy, I was tired etc. My first PCP wouldn't run the tests for Hashi.
Avatar n tn nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); depression, confusion, hallucinations; or cold feeling in your hands and feet. Perhaps a return trip to the doctor is in order to discuss these symptoms.

Avatar f tn first off, if you respond to this question, i thank you. its been bothering my for quite some time. i have never been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but i have been diagnosed with "bipolar" and "depression with psychosis". However, my symptoms fit freakishly well under "schizo affective disorder". i know its wrong to self diagnose but it honestly is the closest ive come in matching my symptoms with its.
2033435 tn?1329947108 How do you differentiate between hypo symptoms and depression? It seems to me that since I know I have a hypo issue, I am even more fatigued and unable to get out of bed. And this makes me think if the way I feel is psychological related, or if it's from being hypo. In the last 3 weeks I can hardly get out of bed and I can't pinpoint if it's just laziness, depression-related or a hypo symptom. I know hypo causes depression and no one really knows if it's egg or chicken paradox etc.
10507163 tn?1442323514 Hi I'm 20 years old, I was diagnosed BPD a couple of years ago which seemed to make sense because I feel like I have almost all of the symptoms (11). However, I was told by two psychiatrists that I wasn't BPD even though they didn't really come up with an alternative explanation, they wouldn't even consider the idea of it and they'd only had one session with me.
Avatar n tn I suffer from depression, lethargy and at times racing pulse and anxiety. These symptoms fluctuate. My first Dr says these symptoms can't be caused by my thyroid because my hormone levels are "normal". The second Dr wants to get me checked for chronic fatigue and gladular fever which he thinks is the cause of the depression and lethargy. He says I can take beta blockers to help with the anxiety. Can beta blockers help?
Avatar n tn No other symptoms, except what is listed. Just tired of feeling this way and dr.s says nothing. Gets frustrating, I could live with the tremors and jerks, but the not knowing when I may pass out and have "seizure" or not a "seizure". Some drs. say they are seizures and some say that I am doing it myself. Yea, right who is their right mind would want to fall out and jerk all over. Thanks for you comment. Please let me know if you find out any more.
Avatar n tn 5 the next) but when I tried to get off I was a wreck--it was worse than my original depression! So, my symptoms that I have been struggling with are: extreme fatigue, night sweats, shivers (flu like feeling) and yep, I gained 10 lbs. Is this the Effexor and not some mysterious illness (that no doctor can seem to find)? If it is the Effexor, what is a better medication that will not give me the fatigue?
Avatar f tn I have been seeing a rheumatologist but he doesn't know what to make of my tests and symptoms. I ahve tried several different medications as well as a gluten free diet, which has helped some of the GI issues but not all. I have an extensive family history of autoimmune diseases from Lupus,to crohns, to autoimmune hepatitis. Any ideas? Anyone else have symptoms similar to this?
Avatar n tn I think to myself, you do not have to go to the bathroom, you just went one minute ago! 2. Depression-I'm horribly depressed from being sick all the time and not knowing why. 3. Dizziness or vertigo-constantly 4. Fatigue-always, always tired 5. Ataxia-just started with this 6. Numbness or pain-my right hand goes numb a lot but usually only at the computer or when I am sleeping. Sleeping both hands go numb but I always think of that as like a carpal tunnel thing. 7.
Avatar m tn Although i call it brainfog i dont get any foglike symptoms it more confusion and my brain not giving me all the information. Ill let you know how i go on with my tests. If you are willing we could e-mail each other with our weekly experiances and how we are getting on in life with these episodes.
Avatar m tn I'm a white male, age 30. Symptoms began in mid-June. Recent episode below: 12/11 Notice a few bumps/blisters on the far left side at the intersection of scrotum/penis shaft/abdomen 12/15 Notice 2 similar bumps/blisters on the right side of the scrotum up near the shaft - still red to this day. 12/19 Skin appears red & somewhat inflamed on the top left side of the shaft at the very base. Next morning bumps appear. Gone in few days.
Avatar f tn driving on the wrong freeway when going somewhere I've had these symptoms for around 2 years, and the confusion part seems to be getting worse. What could be wrong?
Avatar n tn Just to clarify, the list I posted are symptoms you "can" have. Not everyone will have these symptoms. Some will have none, some a few. Like a few others posted, they had no symptoms. That is why this disease is so nasty and hard to eradicate. It is sneaky and reproduces at such a fast pace. Eventually the battle that goes on between your immune system and HCV will cause you to feel symptoms. The most common being fatigue & joint pain.
Avatar m tn i deal with the confusion almost daily and even medicine doesn't help much, but my psychiatrist isn't the best. i'm going to find a new one soon. some maybe depression too, i have anxiety with depression and mania cycles as well. anxiety can make you do some wierd things and it sounds like you have it. try not to get so self centered, try to think about how you are effecting others, not constantly concentrating on yourself may help too.
Avatar m tn Symptoms generally come on 2-4 weeks post, but they are not reliable at all in judging infection. When you say the condom broke in the middle what do you mean?, was the head of your penis exposed?
Avatar f tn i have been having problems with depression for years going from severe to moderate. No one seems to want to talk about my symptoms though. i feel very detached from everything , my prospective seems to change.... what i see doesn't seem real .I experience moods swings that can change within a few hrs. I often feel suicidal infact on a regular basis. i have become a hermit not having any contact with people. I feel tired all the time even when i have been sleeping ok.

Avatar f tn The headaches I get either begin in the base of my neck and wrap around my head to shoot piercing pain through my eye (these are most severe) or they begin as a sensation on being pinched or electrocuted on the top of my head (these linger for days or weeks with no relief from OTC medication). Other symptoms that I have include diarrhea, nausea, mood swings, loss of appetite, tremors in my hands, severe joint pain in my back, neck, and hands, and depression.
Avatar m tn you're conclusively and definitely hiv negative you do not have hiv.. symptoms is nothing and test is everything in hiv.. your symptoms are not related with hiv...... delay seroconversion us urban myth there is no such thing of delay seroconversion..
6081006 tn?1379061150 I didn't even know I was suffering from a depression because I didn't know the signs of depression. My depression is heredity. Depression runs in my family. Anyway, I had been taking a certain antidepressant for a number of years. It seems that antidepressant wasn't working any more. The reason I mention this is because here were some of the symptoms Major brain fog, major difficulty concentrating and remembering. Let's say I put an object away or done somewhere.

The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
Avatar f tn except for the lingering memory loss/confusion (I had gotten lost while driving around, in a familiar place, couldn't remember how to use my phone to get help, & was confused by everything). I have a hard time with timelines, I can only remember bits & pieces of things, & what I DO remember, seems like it happened several weeks ago. My thoughts get "jumbled up" & I don't know what's what sometimes. I usually can't recall the things I've done earlier in the day...
Avatar m tn I also have no awareness of time - so I don't know or recall or feel,how long I've been doing anything.
Avatar n tn I've been to the doctor and he said it might be depression and recommended I see a therapist. I don't think it is. I do not feel upset or depressed at all. Along with these symptoms, I have this feeling of pressure all over my head, that goes along with the feeling like there is...something inside the head I guess is the best way to put it ? Feels like something is pressing on my skull a bit from the inside. Nothing extreme....But its a numb kind of feeling.
