I have several symptoms and diagnoses’ that seem to all tie in to each other but I am being treated for them separately. It's a "What came first, the chicken or the egg" kind of thing. I would like to list these symptoms and diagnoses’ chronologically and see what you think. About me, I am a 49 year old woman, per-menopausal, 5'5" 190lbs and smoke about 10 cigarettes a day. First symptoms, Hypoglycemic Reactions and dry skin as a child and still but they are less, tonsils
removed. In 2002 classic symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks, heart palpitations, crying spells, a few years later developed insomnia which is now chronic. Without sleeping pills will not sleep at all up to 3 and 4 nights in a row, fatigue
(of course). A couple years later, pretty bad acid reflux, digestive problems. After a couple more years discovered high blood pressure
(off the charts) I would even get bloody noses. About a year later was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea
; this is when I start losing jobs, 4 in 5 years. On CPAP about 3 years but it doesn't work. After doing more research on apnea causes I see that I have a very elongated uvula and saggy soft palate. Constant sore throat, clearing throat and coughing, post nasal drip. My airway is abruptly blocked when I blow my nose. Dry and irritated nose, throat and eyes, mucus blocking tear ducts and daily headaches. In the last 6 months or so, fatigue, dizziness, irritable, difficulty focusing, memory loss, confusion and in the last six weeks since losing my last job, isolating, crying spells, avoidance, loss of motivation, interest and appetite. Will this just keep getting worse? I don't know where to begin. Help!!!
