I am a 23 year old male with all kinds of health problems. I have recently been diagnosed with panic disorder with a combination of depression. Two weeks ago last Sunday I had to go to the emergency room for siezures. The seizures didn't involve any unconciousness, pain, urination, or biting of the tongue, though they lasted for 1 1/2 - 2 hours and ceased only when I was intreveniously given Valium. I expierienced shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, difficulty speaking and eye problems. (everything seemed very bright) I believe there is another underlying problem causing these problems, although my doctors say it was a panic attack. Other health problems that i have include red sometimes painful blisters or pimples on my forhead and upper back area. These I have had since the age of sixteen. I have tried washing thouroughly twice a day, acne medications, and vitamin supplements. Nothing seems to remove these sores. I also have had a tremor in my hands for many years that no one seems to be able to explain. I have had CAT scans and X-rays done of my head and neck to try and explain these. None of these tests have ever shown anything. Another problem I have had for many years now is blood in my stool and diarrea or constipation. These digestive problems occur on a daily basis. Sometimes antacids or Pepto Bismuth help, but not much, and the problems always come back. The blood is only noticable when I wipe. Often times the stool is so runny, despite the constipation, that I must wipe three to four times. Again I have seen doctors regarding this problem and have been administered barium x-rays, all of which have revealed nothing. And the last thing that may or may not have significance is when I take a deep breath the mid-upper left side of my back hurts deep inside. This ache has been prevalent for more than a week now. At first I thought this was simply a muscle ache, but it feels like an internal organ problem. Does anyone know of a disease or problem that would cause all of these symptoms for years? THESE PROBLEMS ARE RUINING MY LIFE and I feel like im on the verge of death. ANY help or advise would be greatly greatly appreciated. Know also that I see doctors more than once a month and none have seemed to fix these problems, so telling me to "see a doctor" would be insulting and redundant. If you need more information and would like to email me, feel free to do so at firstname.lastname@example.org
