Looking for A Diagnosis ... Does anyone have similar symptoms?
Here is a list of symptoms I have. All symptoms have become present within the last 3 years, except for asthma. I have had asthma my whole life. I am looking for answers because any research I have done and doctors I have seen have not been able to diagnosis me with the underlying cause.
-MRSA (several outbreaks, last one was 1 1/2 years ago)
-Severe skin rash on hands and feet (dermatologist refers to as
-Urinary Tract Infections
-tingling in hands and feet
I just got a call from my doctor, informing me that the tests I took most recently all came back negative. These tests included thyroid, autoimmune, anemia, and celiac disease.
All symptoms started to appear about 3 years ago when I had pneumonia. At the same time, I had my first outbreak of MRSA (which appeared in 3 separate places at once) and this is when my hair started to fall out (Alopecia).
I am becoming more and more upset about my health problems because I cannot find any answers. I do not know what is the cause for all these issues. I am lost with where to turn next, so I am asking this to the public to see if anyone else is in a similar situation or knows what I have.
I absolutely appreciate any answers or stories.

Possibly adrenal insufficiency, iodine deficiency, and maybe thyroid.
Take your temperature several times a day and if it varies quite a bit, that's a sign of adrenal issues. Also, shine a light across your eyes in a dark room. If the pupils do not stay constricted, pulse, and/or 'wobble', that is another sign of adrenal issues. Please see:
If your normal body temperature is below 98.2 degrees F, you may also have a thyroid issue. Tests for thyroid "should be" the
Free T3 and Free T4, and they should be near the tops of their ranges with the Free T3 slightly higher thn the Free T4. If you only had a TSH run, it should ideally be "almost zero" or below 1. Please see:

I certainly hope this information helps somewhat.

You should ask for some referrals to other doctors. Like an Endocrinologist, Nephrologist (kidney), and an infectious disease doctor. If someone has all of these conditions you need to be seen by a few other specialists to get their opinions. Anyone would be moody if they had all those things wrong. I hope you find your answers. Good Luck.
