My 18 year old daughter has been having stomach pain and headaches. We have been tested for crones and celiac disease which was negative. She was also tested for food allergy - negative also. She has not had an appetite and has not been drinking enough but has been having boughts with dirrehea and then constipation. Yesterday she had a spell and was disoriented and dizzy and could not make a good sentence. We took her the emergency room and they did and EKG which was OK, blood work was OK , Urine negative, but they did a CAT scan and it showed abnormal. The ER Dr wanted us to follow us with a Neurologist. They said she had missing White Matter , which may mean nothing, but they wanted us to follow up. What does that mean? Could her other symptoms be related to this. THis is very strange, but she has felt bad for months now and we have not answers.
