The sencation started about 2 weeks ago.
It happens once a day or every other day.
It can stay for a couple of hours or just a few minutes.
I have been very health up till now.
I had a scare in May of 2014 of chest pains. I went to the Hospital and they could not find anything.
My fiance Died 3 month ago and it has been very emotional.

Brief Answer:
Blood sugar/Mental relaxation exercises/vitamins and anti-oxidants

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for being in follow-up and providing further details.

After going through your detailed medical history,I am of the opinion that the symptoms as if now are non-specific and do not point towards a diagnosis.

However,sometimes Diabetes and vitamins deficiencies may present like that in the initial stages.

I suggest you to get a 'Blood sugar' level done.

At the same time,please start taking antioxidants and multivitamins supplements.

Further,please start doing regular mental relaxation exercises like meditation/yoga.

I hope to see you improve with these measures.

Hope that I have answered your query.If you have some further questions,I shall be glad to answer else please close the thread,rate it and write a review as your rating will be of help to me.

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

my son is 20 years old and he is on synthroid and saizen. Yesterday I took him to a doctor because he s had lower back pain for a couple of days. The doctor prescribed Naprosyn 500mg for pain twice daily when needed and cyclobenzaprine (10mg) for 10 days at bedtime. My son took only one dose of cyclobenzaprine last night and today he went to school and was feeling very dizzy. I brought him home and did some some research about this drug and found out that people who have a thyroid disorder should not take this medication. Of course I called the doctor immediately to advise her of her mistake so it won t happen to anybody else. Is it dangerous if he only took one? What should I do?
