Hi! My name is mal. I’ve been having these symptoms and honestly I don’t know what they are I’ve had lots of these for years and I recently went to the doctor about this and he told me that I was dehydrated which i was but my symptoms didn’t get better with drinking more water. For context I have been diagnosed with anxiety, adhd and an eating disorder anyway to the symptoms.
.cold and hot flashes
.constant purple/mottled hands and legs
. Numb hands
.often dizzy
.when I stand up I often sit back down because of feeling lightheaded
. Nausea before eating
.often sweaty
.often tired after simple tasks (dishes, making bed)
If anyone knows anything related to these symptoms I would appreciate so much if you could reach out. Thank you!!! #help #nausea #Dizziness #dizzy #cold flashes #Hot flashes #numbness #purplehands #Fainting #lightheaded #Sweaty #chronic fatigue

Fragmented I guess is the best way to explain how I've been feeling lately. Do you ever feel like you're drowning in your own thoughts, everything with your health, with your stress, but everyone is walking around you breathing just fine. They might feel for you because they care but no one is exactly in your shoes. I'm 23. I can't even lift a gallon water bottle without the urge to pass out walking out the door this morning. I used to have a life once upon a time. I get reminded sometimes when I see my friends since childhood posting about their amazing lives now and I'm so happy for them. They're hiking and traveling and doing all the things I used to do, that I can't do that I dream about. I close my eyes and wish for freedom. I wish I could be healthy again constantly. I wish I could go back and tell everyone it's okay they don't have to worry about me anymore I'm fine. I was raised to be independent, now I can't drive, walk fast, run, jump, bend, exercise without passing out or having the feeling of wanting to. Last Thursday my husband and I were at our friends' house and I started to pass out at the dinner table and tried to fight the feeling (I caught myself by the palms of my hands on the table) my best friend Ash walked me to the couch and gave me some water next thing I know I was out. I was unconscious for the longest I had ever been this time. When I came back this time everything was blurry even though my glasses were still on, I couldn't recognize anymore or hear anything anyone was saying because it was all too muffled sounding. I was totally disoriented I didn't know where I was, what had happened, or what was going on. Another couple of minutes passed and my vision and hearing returned to normal and I was once again lucid. That has never happened to me after fainting before. My cardiologist cancelled on Friday because she had an emergency Save a Heart case and I was supposed to get the results of my Echo, and Tilt Table Test. She thinks I have POTS. So does my Neurologist. I'm just ready to find out what the hell is wrong so I can get on with a treatment plan I'm tired of living like this. #Fainting #POTS #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #dizzy #lightheaded #IIH #IntracranialHypertension #Migraine #CheckInWithMe #Depression #Anxiety

Is anyone else dealing with this ?

I have chronic head pressure, constant. And dizzyness along with derealization. It feels like my head is in a bubble that needs to be popped, I feel like I’m in a video game. #headpressure #dizzy #Derealization

Compression Socks!!!!

Compression socks and leggings are great when you’re going to be standing for a while. It’s best to get ones with 30-40 mmHg (the higher the number the tighter they will be, meaning more support) #POTS #AutonomicDysfunction #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #LivingWithPOTS #potslifehacks #ChronicIlless #dizzy #Lifehacks

I’ve had dizziness, extreme fatigue, minor loss of appetite (comes/ goes) nausea, and blackouts associated. Had major medical testing done. No clue?



Do other people get really #dizzy during #Depression

When I’m really depressed, I get really dizzy to the point I can’t walk in a straight line. I think part of it has to do with #Dissociation. Anyone else experience this?
