Help! What is going on?

HI everyone! I've been having problems ever since I've had my hyst. (3 months after) and I'm not for sure if it is related to the surgery or if it is something totally different. About August of last year I just started feeling extremly tired once again and migraines 7 days out of the week. I thought the tiredness was just from surgery, it had only been 3 months of course I'm going to be tired. This continued, and then in December my left left began to tingle on and off. I didn't think too much about it until Jan. of this year. By the end of Jan. the tingling never went away, it was with me 24/7. In Feb. both arms and my right leg began to tingle on and off. Still to this day the tingling has slowed but there are days where my left leg drives me crazy. In March I had an mri done of my back and head but nothing and everyday new symptoms arise. Nauseated, slight temp every now and then, my joints and bones hurt so bad somedays I cant walk, extreme fatigue, dry mouth every now and then, migraines, dizziness, shaky, can't sleep and if I do it feels like I haven't, very forgetful, fever blisters, and the list goes on and on but there is too much to mention. Right now I am seeing a neurlogist to try and find out the problem. I had bloodwork done about 2 months ago and three of those tests came back borderline so I had to go get it done again to see if it came back normal a second time or still the same, and I havent heard anything from him yet. The ANA test was one that he was rechecking. But I am beginning to wonder if all of this has something to do with my surgery or hrt. If someone has any info for me I sure would appreciate it and sorry this was so long.

Dear Ky Beagle

I am so sorry to hear you are having so many different problems

I haven't experienced anything like what you have written. I do hope someone here has some ideas for you. It sounds like you are really having to deal with alot. It does sound like you are seeing the right doctor... although if the ANA comes back elevated you may also want to see a rheumatologist... but I am sure your Neurologist will point you in the right direction... or your GP doctor.

If you are on HRT have you tried posting the same question/experience in the Hormone Jungle forum?

Hi ((((KYbeagle)))) I'm so sorry you've been having such a rough time since your surgery

I haven't had any of the problems you're dealing with, so can't shed much insight on the issues. However, it does sound like your neurologist is doing all the right things. I like that he's continuing to dig for an answer I'm sure that if you need to be seen by another specialist, he'll ensure that you're pointed in the right direction.

I don't know if your problems are related to your surgery: after this surgery, some of us who have whacky immune system do tend to develop seemingly unrelated conditions. Could be what's hapening in your case.

Hopefully, someone will come along with some insight for you. In the meantime, you might want to journal your symptoms: it will help both you and your doctor identify possible patterns. And, taking notes does prevent us from forgetting important issues when we're in the doctor's office.

Sending lots of s your way. Please keep us posted.
