Tisa85 :  Not a doctor, here.  But have you ever heard of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome? (POTS) It can make you feel like you are going to pass out, and many people actually do.  Do you have any other symptoms?  Dizziness, faster heart beat, nausea, etc?

Given that you already have multiple chronic health issues, really, a full work-up with your doctor is best.  It’s likely multifactorial and not rooted in just one thing.  Is your work up with FULL labs?  Because many things you have to specifically request because it’s not covered under the regular labs (for example, Vitamin D is usually not included unless specifically ordered because they suspect a deficiency).  And were they fasting labs?

Frequent urination, non-healing wounds and ulcerations, dizziness can all symptoms of diabetes or other similar blood-sugar regulation disorders.  Fatigue, easily bruising with difficulty healing, mouth ulcerations and dizziness can also be symptoms of anemia.  Low energy, fatigue, and bone and muscle pain can also be caused by Vitamin D deficiency.  Mouth ulcerations can also be a sign of a viral infection.  They can also be a sign of Crohn’s disease, which could also cause malabsorption and possibly mean you’re not actually getting benefit from the vitamin you’re taking and then lead to other deficiencies like the ones above.  Lack of sleep has been shown to weaken immune systems leading people to be more susceptible to illnesses. 

I mean, really, you can play Dr. Internet and plug your symptoms into every online checker all day long, but it’s really only going to give you a differential diagnosis of a dozen or more different things that only a full lab work-up and other testing is going to be able to rule out.

Tisa85 :  I don’t have the mouth ulcers but every few months I feel like hell and no sleep is enough sleep. I had a break of two years then it started again. Still trying to figure out the cause. I get super itchy all the time and I’ve got new allergies and stomach problems all the time. So I’m here to say you’re not alone with random distressing symptoms. Or perhaps not random, I don’t know…

I second the idea top look at POTS. They thought I had immune but nothing comes up in tests.

Take care, I hope you get relief soon. Hugs.

I have POTS, so whenever I hear or read the feeling faint thing my ears perk up.  Have your doctor do an orthostatic test if you can.  Real quick and easy, they take your blood pressure/heart rate laying down, sitting, and standing.  With POTS, if you stand for too long your heart rate may continue to climb causing the faint feeling.  They can also do a Tilt Table Test.  

EVERY SINGLE ONE of my bloodwork tests, adrenal testing, diabetes, etc, came back fine.  So it’s a tough syndrome, BUT it can be caused by a lot of other disorders/autoimmune diseases.  So try to advocate for yourself.  I hope you have a good doctor-Good luck!
