Not life threatening or anything, just makes your cheeks red. Log in to Reply Peroneal tendon subluxation. Dr. laughed at me for doing internet research and concluded I didn’t have it. I said “no, turn my foot like this.” And he agreed: peroneal tendon subluxation. Log in to Reply When I was young, like 5-6, I had a lot of trouble sleeping. Just couldn’t do it. One night I’m laying there, and I can just hear my own heart beat. It sounded word. It wasn’t regular and I could hear it sound funny every once and a while and it freaked me out. After a visit to the doc and getting hooked up to a bunch of monitors for a few days while I went to school, turns out I had a heart murmer Log in to Reply In myself: – Heart Murmur – Endometriosis In others: – ADHD in my mother – Autism in my father I suspect that I also have ADHD/Autism/some mix, but haven’t been tested myself yet. Given my parents though, I’m slightly more sure than I was a few years ago. Dad was diagnosed decades ago, mum only diagnosed last month. I didn’t figure out my Coeliac’s disease before a doctor did. 4 out of 5 so far with two up in the air. Pretty good stats.

I broke my leg when I was 12 and the dr confirmed it Log in to Reply I had a series of strange headaches that caused extreme pain and uncontrollable eye watering on the side with the headache, as well as congestion in the nasal cavity on that side. I looked it up and the only symptoms that seemed similar was SUNCT/SUNA. The info I found online said I should be having hundreds of these attacks a day, when I was only having them tens of times a week. I went to a neurologist who then diagnosed me with SUNCT. I still have no idea what triggers them. They seem to happen more in spring and autumn however. Thankfully they have never been as painful as they were when they first started, even though they’re still very painful. Log in to Reply I told the doctor I might have some vision issues and told him I believed I was colorblind. He told me it is very rare for girls to be colorblind and I would know since it meant my dad had to be colorblind. It was a little fulfilling when he realized what was going on and gave me the color blind test ha ha. Was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that causes me to go blind, one of the symptoms being color blindness! Log in to Reply Depression and autism.

It’s pretty easy to diagnose, though. The main symptoms suggest either cancer or viral infection, and I was missing all the secondary symptoms that go with the infection. Log in to Reply I dont know if this is just a female thing but….pretty much everything I have ever had? I learned young to get all the info before I make the appointment so they dont just brush me off. Log in to Reply Not me, but my Mom.
