What causes muscle pain , depression and dizziness?

For approx., 12 to 18 mths I have been losing wt ( appro 50 lbs) with diarrhea. Also nausea after eating. was having abd pain but no longer have the pain. I did see a gastroenterologist and I had a EGD, colonoscopy, and many stool sample tests which other then moderate gastritis, tests were unremarkable. As I am thinking of other symptoms as follows I am becoming concerned. Fatigue, palpitations and tremors sometimes (mostly after I eat), difficulty swallowing and feeling like it sticks in my esophagus, pain in my neck with cricks, cracks, and stiffness ( I do have sl arthritis in my neck). Muscle pain. Jaw pain. Headaches. Some numbness and tingling in arms when neck pain is at its worse. I lose my balance occ. Dizziness at times. 3 plus edema in lower legs and feet at times. Irritability, depression. Difficulty in concentrating and forgetfulness that is becoming worse. Any ideas of what my problem could be? I live in a small town in NW ND and I am not sure what type a physician I should see and where.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of muscle pain , depression and dizziness. Need not to worry. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like viral syndrome , stress and anxiety , low iron and sugar level or ear problem . I would suggest you to take anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to prevent fever and body-ache , drink plenty of fluids, have proper rest ,do warm saline gargles ,ake analgesic such as Flexon and take light diet. Your symptoms will resolve in 3-4 days. If symptoms keeps on persisting visit general physician once and get it examined and start treatment after proper examination and prescription. Go for blood tests as well to find out exact pathology. Doctor may also refer you to ENT specialist for ear problem .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
