05/19/2008

Question:

Hi, there. I have pain in my arms legs abdominal area my hands and feet go numb all the time and I am very tired all the time. If I eat food after about 10 minutes my heart rate jumps to about 110 120 and I get very sleepy. I have been to a lot of docs and no one can figure it out. Please help. Thanks.

Answer:

It would very helpful to have your age and the sex.

The symptoms your are talking about could be chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, or neuropathy. If all the studies were normal, I would suggest to seek a sleep study consult, a psychology consult and get a cardiologist involved to try to investigate the increase heart rate. You also want to make sure to rule out acid reflex.
