Hi, I am hoping someone can help me identify what is going on for me. For 18 months I've had what I call a 'wonky sensation' around my liver area. When it happens I automatically put my hand to the area and have to stop moving. It makes me really dizzy, my lips tingle and my heart races. It can vary in intensity from a slight 'I don't feel good' to a really intense 'I'm about to lose consciousness' (which hasn't happened but I feel I am teetering at the edge). I have had 2 ultrasounds, an MRI, a colonoscopy, Celiac disease, H-pylori and blood tests - all have come back clear apart from a blood test called ESR which has been slightly high across 3 tests over 8 weeks. Since last January I have been juicing during the day with a light vegetable meal in the evening and have tried being gluten/wheat/sugar/meat/dairy/ yeast free but this has not made it go away - I was strict with this for 5 months but the symptoms still came and since then I have had the odd coffee or a piece of chicken breast but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Over the 18 months there have been periods of weeks without symptoms but for the past 3 weeks it has been pretty constant. Aside from the dizzy 'wonky sensation' I have a constant odd feeling in my right hand side below my breast/liver area. A kind of twisted tightness. I went through an early menopause in my 20s (now in my 40s), have had ME/CFS for the past 5 years and I don't know if thyroid/hormones are all connected to the symptoms and/or the cause. I also have a small swelling on the left side of my neck and this too has been scanned and they found nothing. My doctor says thyroid test is normal but I've read the generic test can be pretty useless. I live in the UK and my doctor is kind but pretty clueless. I have a friend who lives in Berlin who says I should try the doctors over there. Any help or ideas will be truly appreciated as I don't know what else to do. In hope, Frances.
