I need a rheumatologist to help me figure out what autoimmune disorder I may have so that I know what to get tested for. I have chiari malformation type one and a dural venous fistula but my neuro and my pcp think those are secondary and not primary of my symptoms.

Potassium---hyperkalemia level 6.1

Immunology Panel
ANA----1.7 units but a negative striated muscle Ab and a 0.00 AChR Muscle Bind Ab ; TPO 6.1 and AChR Muscle Mod Ab of 6%

Endocrine and Hematology are normal
Symptoms- Had autonomic testing done and bp never returned to baseline on tilt test and I have hyperhidrosis in my hands and feet but produced 0.00 sweat in forearm testing with electrodes
My blood pressure has fluctuated high to low with low level pulses ranging from 160 HI to 52 LOW
Had epilepsy monitoring done and was recorded for non epileptic myoclonic seizures; Facial ptosis present without determinant etiology on occasion, positive for migraine with Aura; Visual disturbances in low levels of light---- occasional nystagmus, diagnosed with Generalized anxiety disorder, normal opthamology, positive Tullio on right side in ORL testing, some intermittent benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, negative for dehiscent canal

Episodes first started with autonomic nervous system dysfunction---- smooth muscles in stomach were severely spasming, whooshing noise in head when blood pressure is low to normal with high pulse or bp high with low pulse rates

Family history of Crohns disease, lupus, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis
Self history---chronic heavy mensis on a bi weekly basis- had ablation done for that, partially prolapsed uterus, tubal ligation done, past history of cysts in ovaries, precancer in uterus and cervix however, normal paps since, have had several TBI's, S curvature of back and neck with herniation in C5 and 6
Had blood test done for Lupus type A, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and all were negative
I have also been shown to produce high levels of cortisol and adrenaline, experienced a 20 lb weight loss in one month April a yr ago. Have normal T4 levels and I do not sleep. I am currently on 75 mg Amitryptaline daily for migraine control and 100 mg pristiq for anxiety. Was on ambien but ambien is non effective on keeping me asleep. Approximate hours of sleep are 2-3 on Ambien. On Lunesta was having trouble falling asleep but staying asleep once falling asleep for only 4-5 hrs. At a loss. Have been dealing with this for 6 months. Someone please help me figure out what is wrong with me.

Is passive aggressive behavior a symptom of generalized anxiety disorder? I think I may have generalized anxiety disorder, as I have frequent anxiety attacks about seemingly small things after I calm down and really think about it. Lately I've been feeling as though I have a tendency of being very passive aggressive, and I'm now wondering if they're related.

I read your query and can understand your distress regarding your symptoms. Generalized anxiety disorder is a condition where a person unduly worries about almost everything and has symptoms of anxiety like palpitations, sweating, tremors, etc. It can be related to his work, home or anything...

I smelt burning hair at the end of March with palpitation and racing heart. Since then I've lost 10% body weight from the last 4 months and suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and depression. Could I possibly have cancer?
Could the weight loss likely be from anxiety or should I look into something else? I am more anxious about this and it causes my health anxiety to skyrocket. My stomach has problems. No pain just looses bowels and quick digestion. Especially at the worse time on the anxiety.

Thanks for posting your query.

In view of the palpitations and weight loss, I believe that the first thing that needs to be ruled out is hyperthyroidism. For the same, you will need to get a thyroid profile done.

Please get a stool for occult blood and a hemogram done. This is in view of...

I take 120mg Inderal LA once a day in the AM for Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Panic Outbursts. Since starting this I've had times where I get the spins and dizzy, or shakes, and my hands and lips getting the tingles. These are not all at the same time, but different times throughout the day.
welcome to HCM!

The problem you are having are due to 120 mg of inderal. it is not the proper recommended druga and dosage for treating anxiety. You should have been given some good anti anxiety molecule - sertraline, or paroxetine,or duloxetine etc.
They will help you a lot without such...

I am 29 years old, female, 5'11" 180lbs. I have been diagnosed with a generalized anxiety disorder and quit smoking about one month ago. For the past week or so I have been feeling a lot of "flutters" in my chest, and a feeling of excess phlegm in the back of my throat. It feels like I have mucus in my chest, and that is what is causing the fluttering, but I have also had heart palpitations quite often (hence the anxiety disorder diagnosis).
Hi. I can understand your concern.
Possibility of bronchitis is more in your case.
So better to consult pulmonologist and get done clinical examination of respiratory system and PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
PFT is needed for the diagnosis of bronchitis.
It will also tell you about severity of...
