Consult a physician and get evaluated. We have to rule out cardiac conditions which can present with similar symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am 25 years old and I currently weight 175 and am 5 7. I have over the past 2 years been increasingly gaining weight. I exercise 3 times a week, have tried every diet, have seen a nutritionist, and a family doctor. Everyone says that I am doing everything right but they can not explain why I keep gaining weight. My other symptoms are I only move my bowels once maybe twice a week, I get random hot flashes, I have night sweats, I am tired and moody a lot. I am not on any medication and there is no way I am pregnant. Thyroid problems run in my family but I have been tested and everything came back within the normal range even thought I have most of the symptoms. I started my weight at 160 this year and just keep gaining weight. If you have any ideas on what this could be please let me know. I have read that not all people with hypothyroidism can be proven with the tests but if this is true I don t know how to be put on medication if I can not have a doctor prescribe it.

I have had a hysterectomy at 40... ovaries were left & a year later. the Left ovary entangled in 5 layers of intestines & was removed. A couple years later (2-6yrs) I was tightening inside, which was confirmed by Dr needing smaller instruments to do exam. I was diagnosed after a blood test of hormone levels & told they re gone referring to my hormones & that my body was registering 60-70 yrs old. I had night sweats years ago ---- was on hormones & I can t take any hormones due to breast tissue change and mom had breast cancer. All was fine with sweats gone for years. NOW: for past few months I ve had night sweats that actually get the sheets wet & night gown waking me up. I ve been putting up with it but it seems to be getting worse & affecting my sleep (even though I take Trazadone 50mg) at lunch I talked to a friend 5-10 yrs older than me to get her opinion. How could night sweats happen with no hormones She suggested there can be other glands contributing and to call for doctor apptm. I have a main Dr. don t need referrals and wonder if I should see endroconologist. Other symptoms are increased tired- draggy feeling and eating but not much appetite. What are your thoughts on possible causes?
