I am having rapid heart rate,head aches, occasional nausea, major loss of appetite, extreme exhaustion

I'm 34 and have all of the sudden begun to have very scary and strange symptoms like a rapid heart rate (while resting) and numbness in all most and random parts of my body (but not constant), head aches, occasional nausea, major loss of appetite, extreme exhaustion (even after a "good" night sleep), feelings of adrenaline rushes, difficulty breathing & shortness of breath, and sweating in my sleep. I've been through all kinds of testing for my heart (30-day monitor, echo, x-ray, blood work) and nothing points to anything wrong in that area. Some suggest panic attacks, but that isn't consistent with all the other symptoms. I've had to fight the fear of death every day for the last 3 weeks, and I'm FED UP. I feel like my whole world has come crashing down on me and I'm SO not satisfied with life... I have so much yet to do... and I DO believe God will not deny me that, but I want some answers. Could this be hormone related or even a poisoning or anaphylaxis of some sort? Or maybe my docs have just not looked in the right place for a heart condition. Any ideas I can research? Chris- we've considered sleep apnea, but I thought that the symptoms would only be while resting or sleeping. I've had the racing heart rate happen in the middle of the day. Not to mention the SOB and difficulty breathing. I will still look into that with my doc. Thanks for taking the time to answer. Your FACE- I will ask about the kidney issue. So far my doc doesn't feel it could be that, but it wouldn't hurt to check my kidney function. Michelle- I don't feel better when I eat, but I haven't done a fasting glucose (at least since I was pregnant) Aaron- You've lost me.

Hello, I have been having GI issues for several years. I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago due to gall stones. However, my symptoms began shortly after giving birth to my third child about 4 years ago. Generally about 10-20 minutes after I eat I have diarrhea , pretty much on a daily basis. I very rarely ever have a normal BM. My diarrhea is yellowish, mucusy or oily, it is typically mostly liquid with a few quarter sized solid pieces which appear to be covered in mucous. I usually have very bad stomach cramping prior to having the BM. I sometimes feel very nauseous and for the past 6 months I have been extremely exhausted. My primary care doctor diagnosed me with IBS when my symptoms first began. he suggested I eat more fiber. I eat lots of fiber and still experience the symptoms. Could this be Crohns or celiac disease? I also have a lot of colon cancer in my family. 4 family members on my father s side being diagnosed with colon cancer aging in range from 25 years old to 65 years old. I am currently 26. Please help!

I have this on a regular basis where I m fine then out of know where I feel sick. My stomach can t decide if I m going to throw up or do the other thing. I sit on the toilet and wait. It comes out of know where. It has already happened twice this week. The first time I ate about 4 hours earlier, this time 11 hours ago. Both meals where not out of my dietary realm. I am a male, 25.

Hello~I have been experiencing movements in my stomachand occasional nausea for a little over a month. The movements feel like a baby rolling around in my stomach but I am not pregnant. I have been having regular periods. I did take the plan-b pill about 2 1/2 months ago, so I m not sure if this could be a side effect. I have 2 children, so I am well familiar with the pregnancy sensations. I just had my 2nd child by c-section almost 7 months ago. I just had a 30 year old friend suddenly pass from a stomach aneurism, which makes this even more troubling. Help please.

Since March I have had level II pitting edema in my legs and feet (about 8-15 of fluid) twice. My cardiologist refers to this as right-sided heart failure. My liver and kidneys are fine, EKG and echo normal and no blood clots. I had a right heart catheter that revealed a pulmonary wedge pressure of 20. They did not check the left side of my heart. I was prescribed Lasix and told take it from time to time as needed, and Spiranolactone to take indefinetly. I have mild obstructive sleep apnea and was told this may be causing the elevated right-sided pressure which eventually leads to the edema. I wear a CPAP every night. I feel very tired at points in the day to where I cannot hold my eyes open, and I am also extremely bloated in my stomach. I feel pressure near my sternum. A tight band sensation wraps from my back around to chest at the sternum level, which makes wearing a bra complete torture. The last thing is that most mornings upon waking I will gag until I vomit. Please help me I am desperate for answers and have been to ten doctors. Stacie
