I get between 7-8 hours of sleep every night, but i feel like my body is on auto pilot like i can control it only when i feel that i need to. it exausts me to walk up the stairs and i get shortness of breath i've been diagnosed with PTSD and i have panck attacks but i've been more light headed lately. does a diabetes attack feel the same as a panick attack? I have symptoms like extreem fatigue, weakness, lack of consentration, rapid heart beat, chest pains, headaches, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, irritability, muscle pain, and my periods have went from 7 days to 3 days in the last year, cold all the time, and excessive thirst.

eitherway i have an appointment in a couple of weeks but i'd liek to know if anyone thinks it could be sirious, and i'm stressin about it now and i dont think thats helping. I donno what to do anymore i feel like it's a challenge to accomplish everyday things that used to be easy. I feel exausted all the time now and it acctually gives me a headache when i try to consentrate on things, like now.

One other I would add is to workout. Working out makes your body release endorphins which makes you have more energy. Do you workout?

Dear Anon, I am sorry you are experiencing so many symptoms at once. I sure hope your doctor can help you identify the root cause of the problem. I have no doubt all the symptoms are related. If you do not find a satisfactory answer from your regular primary care doctor, I suggest consulting a Naturopath.

You do not mention your age, this will help establish a body-stage of aging, i.e. peri or post menopause. At a first read of your symptoms they would appear to be consistent with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I would urge you to ask your doctor to test the levels of:

1. Minerals: Calcium-Magnesium ratio and Potassium, Sodium
2. Vitamin D
3. Adrenal Function (to rule out adrenal fatigue)
4. DHEA level
5. Thyroid T3 and T4
6. Vitamin B (all of them)
7. Zinc
8. Vitamin C

Just to name a few. There are specialized tests that check the above and if your doctor does not know where to start a ND will.

Wish you well
