I and my colleagues have been stumped by my symptoms, hence I thought to check directly with people who may have similar symptoms.
I'm a doctor by profession, 49 years of age, physically active with no diagnosed problems.
I have been feeling light headedeness, giddinees and weaknesses for a while. First episode happened last year which lasted about 3-4 hours with spontaneous recovery but symptoms were so severe that I had to cancel my clinic and take a taxi home. Nothing significant was found (ECG, BP, blood sugar all normal).
About 3 weeks ago, I was playing squash with my friend and for first 6-7 points, I was feeling so light headed that my racket didn't even touch the ball. It then disappeared.
For the last two weeks these attacks are happening repeatedly and all my tests (5 day Holter, CT coronary angio, ECG, brain scan, carotid doppler, blood tests) have been normal
The other two symptoms that I have is skin hyperpigmatation for the last two years (unknown cause) and vague shoulder pains (again no diagnosis yet)
My latest TSH is 3.63 mIU/L (0.25-5). Free T4 16.1 pmol/L (9-23).
Although at this stage, adrenal insufficiency lies at top of the diagnostic possibilities; what do people think of my symptoms and results.
Many thanks in advance.
