If I have a question about symptoms, do I just post them here to you?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Internal heat, head pressure that is debilitating, stiffness, tachychardia, chest pain, blood pulling in the legs, dry eyes, blurred vision, constipation, etc.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Episodic, but daily. It feels like it “comes on” and rests in sinuses. I also have TMJ.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have Syringomyelia and POTS. I think the POTS diagnosis is a stretch as my heart rate will be 125 while lying in bed.

I am sorry you are having these symptoms

how old are you?

are you male or female?

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? severe anxiety can cause fast heart rate at rest and chest pains

you should get your thyroid hormone levels checked as well. hyperthyroidism can cause fast heart rate at rest and feeling hot.

excessive caffeine intake can cause fast heart rate at rest.

I’ll be 28 next month. Female. Anxiety since this started in July and only after the symptoms begin (meaning I get anxious during intense episodes). Symptoms began with leg swelling, pulling and tingling below the knees.I have cut out all caffeine since July. Eating very clean and well balanced. Lots of water.As of July:
My TSH: 1.218
FT4-1.18
T3, free - 1.98
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

your thyroid hormone levels look good

that is good you have cut out caffeine

your symptoms could be due to bad anxiety sypmtoms

there are medications which can help decrease anxiety symptoms which could help you.
