I’m not OK…

I’ve been having some odd symptoms recently and I’ve decided I’ve had enough. It’s effecting my quality of life. Usually I wake up and I’m OK for a few hours. Then, I start getting dizzy, faint, feverish, pale and weak. I usually get nauseous from the dizziness too. It comes in waves and gets better sometimes when I eat or lay down. It sometimes passes, sometimes not. I also have been getting numbness in my hip and legs.

I looked it up on WebMD and they say it could be dehydration, atrial fibrillation, hyperthyroidism, acute stress disorder, sleep deprivation or anemia.

I’m making an appointment to see my chiropractor next week to see if that helps with the numbness and I ordered glucose and thyroid tests. Unfortunately, they have stopped making home tests for anemia, so I’ll just have to try taking Iron and see if it gets better.

In any case, this is pretty miserable. I haven’t actually fainted yet, but I’ve come close. I haven’t been able to sleep in my bed because of the numbness in my hip and I’ve been generally annoyed by having to lay down or desperately search for something to make it better.
