please help! mystery illness

Post by hellojenny1982 » Tue Aug 18, 2009 10:22 pm

Not sure if this is the right place for this sort of question, but i thought since i'm desperate i would give it a shot!The past 2 months I have been getting really sick and the doctors haven't been able to diagnose me and i was wondering if anyone out there had similar symptoms or knew possibly whats wrong with me. It seem like it happens mostly before i get my menses. I usually get heart palpitations, my eyes get real red and then i get my period. Its a weird but very scary spell. The past 2 months were a little different. I had terrible diarrhea that lasted the whole lenght of my period but my period stopped when i got it. It was accompanied by mucus in stool and i was itchy everywhere and had a weird tingling sensation. Since that has gone away, now i just feel really bloated and my breasts are sore and tender. I was wondering if this seems to be a gyno issue since my internal med doc can't seem to figure out whats wrong. Has anyone else had symptoms like this?

As a guess, it sounds distinctly hormonal. Keep close track of what happens when, and see someone who might be able to diagnose it.

I agree with Darby.Visit endocrinologist as soon as possible.

Yes, go to the gynecologist to see if they can give you some tests and help diagnose your problem.
Are you on birth control pills? In some people, they can really mess up your internal working order.
You should see if this developing pattern is observed again in the next cycle. You might just of had a coincidence of a bacterial/viral infection with an unruly hormonal period.
