Hello to you all. I will try to keep this as brief as possible, but I unfortunately have a lot to list. I'll start with conditions I know I have, or at least were diagnosed by specialists to have. I am a 58 year old woman, 125lbs 5'5"
Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Myofacial Pain Syndrome, GERD, IBS, Degenerative Disease, High Triglycerides
Undiagnosed issues. Severe on and on carpal tunnel like symptoms
Last year, I had a severe attack of diarrhea, which the next day caused me to pass a lot of blood clots. I went to the hospital to get assessed, but apparently the CT scan they did went wonky and they thought I had something wrong with my heart (I didn't), They referred me to a gastro guy who first said I had Crohns, but then after the coloscopy, said I didn't. I asked him why I bled so much then and he said he didn't know I had bleeding? Anyway, needless to say, there was no diagnosis and no explanation for the bleeding.
Fast forward to this week. Again another severe diarrhea attack followed by blood clots the next day. Not as many and I didn't go to the hospital. In three days I have had no more problems except loose stools.
Now, my present situation. I have a line of thick skin running down the sole of my foot from in between my toes. Sometimes it is quite painful to walk on. It looks like a scar forming where there is no cut. There is a second smaller hard line coming of this running further down my foot.
I have what I thought was a ganglion cyst on my right wrist and have had several carpal tunnel like issues mainly on my right wrist but also on my left as well. I also suffer from white hands and feet with very little exposure to the cold, which results in extreme pain as the extremities get warm again. I am almost like allergic to the cold and wind will give me hives.
So why am I here? Well I read a post from another member from 2013 and it could just have easily been me writing the post.
If anyone can take the time to read this and respond, I would greatly appreciate it. For many years, I've always felt like they were missing something but I hate coming across like a hypochondriac. My father was a family doctor and I did learn a lot about medicine from him, plus reading his books as a child. My present family doctor is a wonderful guy, but it concerns me that he didn't seem too concerned that they couldn't answer my bleeding last year, and now it is happening again.
Thank you in advance.
