No I am not pregnant.
For the past 18 months since my daughter has been born I have experienced odd fits of weakness, dizziness and lightheadedness. I have been seeing various doctors for these issues to see if it could be anything from a heart issue to diabetes. The answer has been Fibro Myalgia and Sjogren's Syndrome.
But why the random food cravings? Do I need certain nutrients from these foods? Lately I have been craving mashed potatoes, green beans, blue berries, and SALT. Sometimes I feel dehydrated and drink lots of water but it actually makes the feeling in my head worse, almost like water is making me drunk.
Are any of you ladies nurses or doctors? Please help me out! I need more opinions than what the doctors are telling me... because oddly.. I always tend to feel better once I am right in front of a doctor so they never get to see me experience these symptoms. My fiancee and my mom see it though and my daughter is always giving me hugs and patting me so i think she is trying to comfort me. It makes me sad because I feel incapable of living. I am only 24, I can't imagine living the rest of my life like this.
