Hi everyone,
Can anyone tell me if this sounds like a b-12 folic acid deficency.

5/8 Started protonix.
6/4 Ended protonix.
6/7 Started Aciphex (took seven pills over 14 days, got medication from Mother In Law).
6/9 Slight fever, chills, dizziness and frequent urination.
6/12 Migraine, fever, chills and frequent urination.
6/13 Migraine, fever, chills, aches in lower back and legs and frequent urination.
6/14 Slight dizziness.
6/16 Dizziness in morning.
6/19 Dizziness in morning.
6/21 Dizziness in morning, last time I took aciphex..
6/23 Slight fever, chills, dizziness and frequent urination.
6/24 Slight fever, chills, dizziness, upset stomach and migraine.
6/25 Dizziness, upset stomach, spaced out feeling and full feeling in ears.

Since 6/25 I have been dizzy or lightheaded, spacy/foggy, ears feel full or pressurized 24/7. Other symptoms I have on occasion are headache, neck ache, chills, flushing, lower back pain tingling sensations in my arms and legs, extra salivation, dry throat, popping noises at bridge of nose and sinuses under eyes(the popping feels like pressure is releasing).

I know a lot of this is mental, for instance I seem to feel worse before doctors visits or going to unemployment. I always feel bad on Mondays( maybe because I am not going to work), I always feel better on weekends, What I mean by better is no anxiety symptoms. Anxiety symptoms will turn lightheadedness into dizziness or dizziness into vertigo. When I feel real spacy it tends to bring on anxiety. What I mean by spacy is feeling like i am in a dream all the time, it is like my eyes, ears and brain are not working together. Anything that has motion and sound makes me feel freaky, a car driving by, a group of people talking, even chirping birds.

This has completely disrupted my life, I have gone from staying busy to doing nothing. The worst thing is not knowing, should I exercise or will it make me feel bad, should I quit smoking or will the stress from that make it worse.
Here are my test and treatments:

5/8 Protonix 40mg
5/30 h. pylori test
6/7 Acipex 20mg
6/25 Ranitidine, Mecklizine and CBC test
7/3 Tetracycline
7/8 Shot of Cortisone
7/9 Catscan
7/10 Urine test for diabetes
7/18 Diagnosis, Eustacian Tube Dysfunction. Prednisone, zyrtec and nasonix. The nine days on these drugs were very bad.
7/25 Diagnosis, Anxiety. Paxil cr25mg
7/28 Told by a Dentist that I had a impacted wisdom tooth.
7/29 Penicillian
8/3 Full thyroid panel

What should I do next, I do feel better now then I did when it started. I am afraid that one wrong move may send me back. this problem has caused me to quit work and being that I have no insurance I am not able to continue to see doctors. All the doctors I have seen seem lost. I have been on paxil for 2 months and it has not helped. The only thing that has made me feel better is time. There are several things that make me feel bad. Morning is the worst, hot showers in the morning really make me feel bad, any kind of strenuous activity makes it worse.

I would also like to say that I am 34 years old, married with 2 kids 2 and 7. I smoked for 12 years I dumped that for chewing tobacco 6 years ago and stoped chewing because it was causing heartburn and acid reflux. I then started smoking again. I do not do any drugs or alcohol.

Thank you very much for your time, I know that you cant give me a diagnosis but it would be nice to get pointed in the right direction and It would be great to here if there is anything I can do to help myself.

Again, Thank You

Derek
