How severe is an albumin of 5.4?  Please describe severity of symptoms?  Crippling fatigue, pulsating symptoms, severe headaches, eye pain, nausea?

None of the above: I hope it doesn't disappoint you greatly to let you know that your Albumin levels are considered quite within the normal range. Of course, lab values do vary from one laboratory to another therefore, it would be best to find out the normal range in the laboratory you had the blood drawn or tested but for all intents and purposes the range of normal for Albumin is taken to be 3.5 to 5.5. ...Read more

Seroquel (quetiapine) makes my un-dx condition worse. Symptoms are heart pain, almost paralyzed due to extreme somnolence, severe cognitive impairment.. Causes?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel (quetiapine) can be very sedating -- more so depending on increased dose. It can also cause "cognitive impairment." I have no idea from here what you were like before the medication, but it sounds like you need a thorough medical evaluation. A psychiatrist may need to also be involved in your care -- and you need to tell whoever is prescribing the seroquel (quetiapine) about what you're experiencing. ...Read more

Long term dizziness (2 months). diangosis with vestibular disorder but now feeling acute nausea, vertigo, floating, hypoglycemic symptoms and facial spams?

More likely with ringing and hearing loss in one ear, but not necessarily. Or it may just be 'benign positional vertigo' on top of the general dizziness you've been having. See ENT for hearing test and balance testing, then treat accordingly. ...Read more
