Thank you

Hello,

I can appreciate your concern.

You are having symptoms pertaining to various systems, so diagnosis is not clear cut. But there are a number of conditions which can cause such symptoms. You need proper investigations to rule out these and other possibilities.

My advise is to go to a Family Physician / Primary Care Physician for this. Make an appointment with a doctor near you. The ER is not the proper place for this checkup - they are more geared towards emergencies and will not take the time for a proper checkup and history.

It is always wise to have a regular Family Doctor on hand who can check up and monitor you on a long term basis so that he becomes familiar with your case.

A number of conditions can cause disorders linked to multiple systems:

  • Autoimmune connective tissue disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Lyme Disease
  • Vit. B12 Deficiency
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Mineral deficiency including magnesium levels
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Dysautonomia (Link)
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (Link)
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Leukodystrophies of Adulthood
  • Hereditary degenerative disorders
  • Carcinoid syndrome
  • Anxiety
  • Cardiac causes like congestive cardiac failure
  • Sleep apnoea

Note down these causes or copy-paste them into Word and take a printout and discuss with your doctor. I am not suggesting that you are having any of this, but having a list of causes will help to start an informed discussion and help you to get detailed explanations.

Take care - go to a Family Physician / Primary Care physician - discuss these causes with him - this will lead to a proper diagnosis for you.

Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.

I trust my answer has helped you gain more knowledge and confidence about your problem and in knowing what to discuss with your doctor.

Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Bonus is always welcome - Thank you!
