What to do about my undiagnosed illness

So over a few months ago and after just having moved to South Washington I came down with some severe illness. All blood tests

came back negative and the doctors provide zero follow up despite my complaints. Some of the symptoms include severe fatigue,

sleeping 14 hours a day, nausea, unable to concentrate, and shortness of breath. When it just started my heart rate was over 100

bpm. I understand there really isn't much you can do on your end so I was wondering what advice you could give. I literally can't

think of anything forget not having ability look into it. I'm currently looking at virtual services and getting my medi-cal insurance

up in hopes they can cover it.

We can't possibly diagnose. We can share our own experiences. You did not say what blood tests were negative. From my experience, I suggest you look into iron deficiency.

Iron deficiency anemia signs and symptoms may include:
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Pale skin
  • Chest pain, fast heartbeat or shortness of breath
  • Headache, dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
  • Brittle nails
  • Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or starch
  • Poor appetite, especially in infants and children with iron deficiency anemia

Get your uric acid tested. If it is over 5.5 then it needs to be lowered. Yes uric acid causes gout but it also causes a shitstorm of health issues, none of which are good, and the worst part is that most doctors don’t have a clue!!
