I am a bit of a medical disaster at the moment, lost my dad to copd in 2015, had a bad appendectomy in 2016 where I went from running 50gm a week to not even walking to the post box. it was open surgery and still hurts, I then got 2 kidney stones (calcium oxalate) and went for a lithroscopy 1 month after each other, they were about 6.2mm. then I went through financial problems, then I lost my mom to copd also 63, then i got divorced, then i snapped and experienced anger for the first time and lost bowl functionality every time I got angry.. it was december 2016 went I booked my self into Psych ward as i couldn't switch my head off with the thoughts. I cam out with bipolar and epilepsy and they put me on zyprexa and epilim, ithen gained about 20 kg and I reacted very badly and would sleep for up to 3 days at a time, miss meetings and then my job started giving me hassles. I couldn't talk properly and felt like a zombie so I stopped my meds and go a bit better but my GP shouted at me because I stopped and then I spirreled down with terrible anxiety and insominia, i was actually resistant to zolpidem and ay benzo so wouldn't take them and stay away for 3 days at a time then crash for a day then start 3 days again. I went to see another psychiatrist but waited 2 months for an appointment, she asked if we please try eplilim again but a lower dose i said i didnt want to but she said we will monitor it.. i felt like a block of cement and got booked into the new psychiatrists mental clinic for 3 weeks, day 2 i collapsed and they found that my amonia levels were 4 times over toxic which was casued by the epilium and apparently there is a 1 in 30 000 chance. so i switched to seroquel, within in 2 days I woke up and it felt like I had my brain back. i was release 3 days later and loving life, still had insomnia though and was mostly high which was my normal state. I ended up losing my job while at the same time started taking meletonin, and as soon as I added melatonin I would get knocked out by the seroquel and sleep for 4 hours and wake fully refreshed.. i was still super high and my psych wouldnt give me a repeat as she said because of the melatonin I was self medicating. I mention at this time, i had the odd psychosis and would constantly hear voices, and could hear music of all genre all the time.. was irritating at first but I started enjoying it. My mom was a clairvoyant and very spiritual so I thought maybe a connection but I would talk to myslef and if I saw someone who wasnt there I would acknoledge them and talk to them so I didnt freek out as I did get paranoid sometimes. I then went to see another psych, who upped my dose of seroquel from 10omg to 150mg and slowly started introducing epitec (lamatrogine) until now at a stable 150mg also, i was still mostly very high and he introduced fluanxol which brough me back down to earth.. so I still operate at 150% but that's normal and don't really have any downs and sleep great, short but great. as of december, i started with struggling to breath if I lifted something heavy or ran to fast up stairs or had sex, it would take me about 10 min of a cold shower and another 10 min just to recover, my heat would go up and I couldn't get oxygen, also I cant lie flat anymore as I struggle. I sleep ok with 4 pillows. but since december I have ballooned up 35 kg and have these sore pimples all over especially on my fat. I had my heart checked as well and its slightly enlarged but not anything of immediate worry.
Oh sorry the cardiologist also diagnosed hypothyroidism and has given me eltroxin.
i know im sorry its a complicated one :)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
