Bit of a weird question but if anyone had any thoughts that would be great.
I've been searching for a diagnosis for my mystery illness for years now. Struggling to get anywhere so been looking into my past to see if that can give me any clues. I remembered something that I think might shed some light on a big aspect of it.
When I was 16 through to 19 (I became ill at 20) I visited a theme park each of those 3 years. Every time I was at the theme park I became ill, but not in the usual way you might imagine after going on rollercoasters/theme park rides. It wasn't just a case of feeling sick or actually vomiting but I became ill in the exact same way I am now, but just in a much smaller and shorter lasting way.
So I would spend the morning on the rides/rollercoasters and then at between 12pm-1pm I would begin to feel really awful - massive weakness, fatigue, nausea, heart pounding, sweating and shaking. This would last all afternoon until 5pm when it would just disappear. Literally in the space of an hour it would be gone and I'd feel fine again. The first time it happened at the theme park when I was 16 I improved so much I went back on the rides again for a couple more hours! The next two times it happens (at age 17 and 18) it was more severe so I was forced to go home but it always improved after 5pm.
Anyway it just got me thinking that had I not gone to the theme park and on the rides those times then the incidents of feeling ill wouldn't have happened. Something about rollercoasters and rides was triggering my illness and making it come out in the way it is now constantly. I know they talk about these rollercoasters being high intensity and having large G-forces in some cases but it feels like it must be more than that. I'm convinced adrenaline and cortisol have to be involved in some way.
Anyhow, I know this is a bit of a random post but if anyone had any thoughts on what might have been going on or (a long shot) had experienced anything similar in regards to thyroid or adrenal issues it'd be great to hear.
