Hi all ~

While I'm thinking about it, I wanted to post a more detailed summary of what I've been experiencing over the past couple years. Any advice would be so appreciated.

2009:
Hand tremors
Shortness of breath
Neck pain (trauma 15 years ago)
Ortho noticed:
Positive Hoffman's sign
Hyper-reflexia
Ordered Spinal MRI (no contrast) for spinal obstruction (normal)
Sent to Neuro
Suspected MS and ordered brain MRI (normal)
~ no diagnosis

2010:
Shortness of breath
Continued hand tremors
Sudden onset of cold sores (never had even one before 2007)
GP performed physical with abnormal EKG
Ordered stress test (normal)
~ no diagnosis

2011:
Significant weight gain around the middle (from size 6 to 14 < a year)
Increasing, more frequent onset of cold sores
Severe constipation
Mouth sores
Extreme fatigue and exhaustion (trouble staying awake while driving)
Weakness/fatigue in the legs
Knee problems (mainly right side behind the knee. Not the knee cap but swelling and stiffness)
Severe heartburn (Barrett's esophagus dx recently from the heartburn)
Colon polyps
Bouts of dizzy spells, accompanied by vertigo, pressure in the head, and blurred vision - no headache (started happening a month ago, ~ 2x per week and comes on suddenly. Very scary)
Insomnia
Thyroid TSH - 2.85 (normal)

There are many more symptoms that I am probably forgetting, but these are the main ones and seem to be getting worse. Since I have never had any sort of diagnosis, only "normal" results for various tests, I am at a loss as to what in the world could be going on. I feel like a total hypochondriac, but something in my gut is telling me something is wrong here. The weight gain of course has me very concerned and embarrassed. I can't afford to keep up with the wardrobe! BTW, I'm 38 if this helps.

Any advice would be so appreciated. :confused:

Thanks!
