Too the point were i feel like im going to pass out. cant sleep well if i get to active its worse cant eat much and tryed everthing under the sun yet no luck and its been going on 8 years still nothing works any ideals
Blazezar, have you had an upper endoscopy done? What did the report from that test show?
I can understand having pain in the chest and the arm with acid reflux, but I'm not sure how the leg pain and eye pain would fit into things. Have you been evaluated by a good physical therapist to see if the overall discomfort is muscular in origin?
Blazezar, you may want to try some dietary elimination to see if your symptoms might be related to food intolerance. In some cases, people can react to food groups with symptoms that can make life miserable. The 4 big food groups that seem to be most often the cause of problems are: gluten (wheat, rye and barley), eggs, dairy and soy. There are food tests that can be done. But you can also try elimination diets on your own. Simply take a single food group out of your diet for about 4 weeks and see if you note any positive changes. If nothing changes, add that food group back and take another one out of your diet.
Yes, it takes a bit of time, but it can be very worth it.
One of the bigger problems these days seems to be with gluten. It produces a LARGE number of symptoms that can include: fatigue, rashes, acid reflux, peripheral neuropathy, brain fog, weight gain, changes in bowel habits, etc., etc.
have the same as you, chest, arm, headaches, feeling in throat, had all the test done all come back normal. seen by ER, family doc, gastro doc, and even cardiologist oh and ENT doc (ear nose and throat) all the test all say GERD. on antacid meds and nothing seems to change. I hurt all the time and even feel like passing out sometimes. Im so tired of this and its been since May 2012.
Dont know what do to.
