Dark skin patches/ weight/ fatigue

Hi,
I am a 26 year old female who has had trouble with patches of dark skin round neck, armpits and thighs since i was about ten years of age. These patches are not a result of dirt/lack of cleaning and seem to match acanthosis nigricans in symptoms / appearance. I have always felt very depressed and ashamed about the appearance of my skin in these areas and always tried to cover them up.

As as a child I was overweight, but managed to loose this weight at the age of 17. Since having my first child 2 years ago I have put on a lot of weight which i have been unable to shift no matter how hard I try. During my pregnancy, I had trouble with my back and pelvis and had to use crutches to walk - a bit of the pain in my back remains.

I am sensitive to perfumes, getting very strong headaches.

Ever since I gave birth to my son my hair has also been thinning.

For the past 7 years or so I have experienced bouts of fatigue.

Any help or advice would be very gratefully appreciated as I am feeling very low and depressed and don't know who to turn to!!

Hi,
the details you asked for:
Sex: Female

Age: 26

Nature of work: self-employed - Digital Graphic Designer

Habits: I dont, smoke or drink.

Describe your main suffering and from how long?:
I have dark patches of skin around my neck, armpits and other bodily creases. I have had these since I was about ten years of age. They look a bit like 'dirt' but are not a result of a lack of hygiene and will not reduce no matter how much scrubbing is done. They seem to be acurately match the description of acanthosis nigricans (and so maybe point to my having a resistance to insulin).


Exact location of problem?:
Round th back of my neck, arm pits, thighs

Any cause which you feel for this ailment?: no

What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
I am overweight (95kg) - I had weight probs as a child but managed to looses a lot of weight at around the age of 17. I put on a large amount of weight during pregnancy three years ago and cannot shift the weight now no matter how hard i try.

I also have sensitivities to perfumes which result in migranes.

During pregnancy I had problems with my pelvis and back - my hormones went into overdrive and the bones in my pelvis became very loose and I couldn't walk without crutches. I still suffer from backpain now as a result.

I also have times when I become extreamly exhausted, without out any obvious reason. When this happens my joints , especially in my ankle become painful and swollen - my GP called this post viral syndrome. I also feel that my brain is foggy, that I can't quite think clearly, or remember things as well as I used to be able to.

In the past 2 year, since giving birth to my son my hair has been noticably thinning.

I also have problems with my digestive system - IBS type symptoms.

What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

The skin problem has made me feel very ashamed and depressed and feeling hopeless and wanting to hide myself away from others. I feel ugly and unloved.

I feel very frustrated that at times I just don't seem to have the energy and ability to get on with the things that I really feel that I need to and this in turn stresses me.

When did it all start?
the skin problem and headaches and weight gain at around the age of 10. Exhaustion and 'brain fog' on and off from the age of about 19( 7 years ago).

What are the things which aggravate or ameliorate your suffering?
skin always the same.
If I am very busy or run down after a cold or something that the exhaustion can be brought on.


When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Mentally i feel more positive during hot weather, but cannot cope when it is too hot. I prefer dry weather.

What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
I crave chocolate, sweet foods, white starchy foods.

I cannot stand strong fish, liver, kidney, vinager, the crunching of apples.

How is your thirst:Proxy-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

ess, Normal or Excessive?

this varies there are times where I have excessive thirst, i will drink glass after glass of water and still feel thirsty and then I will have times when my thirst levels are normal.

How if your hunger: Less,
Normal or Excessive?
probably excessive.

How is your bowel movement and stool type (Constipation etc.)?
I switch between diarrhea and constipation and tend to remove a lot of waste all in one go and then feel very sick afterwards.

How sleep, how are your dreams?

I tend to have quite disturbed sleep - I never wake up feeling refreshed.
I can never remember my dreams.

Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? Not really.

What medicines have been taken earlier? I take various painkillers for headaches/ joint problems - eg paracetamol, Ibuprofen, asprin, codein. I also took an oral contraceptive for about 4 years.

How do you look like (Appearance (fat, thin, smart, tall, lean etc)?
I am quite tall, and fat looking (although my height helps to disguise just how fat I am}


If your are female how is your menstrual cycles and from how long (normal, irregular, painful, clotted, colour etc.)

Cycle is fairly regular but some months can be very painful. Tends to last for about 7 days, sometimes seeming to go away and then come back again.

Family history - What major diseases are running in your family? Not really anything - on my mums side there seems to be a history of digestive problems.


Many thanks for taking the time to look into this for me.
