      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

suffering from strange pain in my esophagel tract & loss of energy daily

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone.

I'm Gabriel. For the last 1 year + , i have been unable to sleep. I constantly have heartburn, dizziness & somewhat weakness in my left hand. I have gone through all the medical test for heart disease ranging from MRI, Heart Echos, Cardiac Enzyme testing &ECG. All the results shows that nothing is wrong with me. However, each day i seems to contract some new symptoms...lately is the loss of feeling in my toes at times...went to check the diabetes result shows OK.

I'm totally loss in most days. I have tried to talk to my wife but she thinks its all in my head.

Called my sister - the psychiatrist in Singapore but she indirectly says I'm nuts.

If i recalled correctly, it started after my mum died 3 years ago....

I have no idea what to say. Can you try another doctor? Have they checked for other disorders, like an autoimmune disorder? 

We will be here with you,

Dear Gabriel,

I'm sorry to hear how are you feeling. I can understand you are trying to find an answer to your condition. Please don't give up. I would seek a second and third medical opinion. I would also consider talking to a therapist, psychologist or counsellor about your situation. I hope you are able to find the answers you are looking for.

Take care of yourself the best you can.

 My deepest sympathy.  I have also been suffering from a series of strange disturbing undiagnosed symptoms for over three years.  When I talk to my mom and sister about them, they think I'm nuts and that I have imagined everything.  I noticed pain in my right upper abdomen in early 2014, then it turned into a pulsating sensation as if there is an extra heart.  Then the pulsating spread into my belly, arms, buttocks.  I ended up with severe constipation, inability to sleep due to pain, dizziness, shortness of breath.  My heart rate goes up to 159 beats per minute around 2-3 am in the morning when I need rest.  My abdomen feels as if someone had poured acids inside with bubbling and burning sensations.  To make everything worse, I cannot seem to recover and recuperate.  

Doctors did X-ray, CT scans, EKG, sonogram, blood/urine tests, but cannot diagnose what's going on.  Intuitively I sense that my condition is terminal and I will never recover from this.
