Jun 20, 2018 · Mystery Solved – Diagnosis Moves Patient from Frustration to Peace of Mind and a Plan

Hi!
Reading these stories I’m in the same boat. I have leg swelling (to where it looks like my ankles are broke) face and hand swelling. Extremely exhausted, weight gain, hair loss, GI issues, the list goes on. Almost a year of testing every blood work you can imagen, brain mri, chest ct/X-ray, ultrasound of everything expect liver and kidney, echo, stress echo. All coming back “normal” only thing they found was serverly vitamin d deficient. Been passed around to everytype of specialist who are all intrigued and think they will figure out what’s going on. Then when nothing tell me to stay active, less stress, diet and exercise. I used to run half marathons and go on long bike ridea with my husband, walk our dogs, and go to zumba. Now it’s a struggle to have a Normal day of errands and work (hairstylist) my cardiologist just suggestioned I go to Mayo cuz she’s at a loss after not finding anything herself and she’s my 4th specialist 🙁
