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!

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
