Jen - Where are you? Could you have been exposed to Lyme Disease? It's in every state in the country, but doctors tend to be unfamiliar with the later stage symptoms. That terrible feeling of losing oneself, along with so many different and strange symptoms is very familiar to me. Every one of your symptoms could be caused by Lyme.
Check out this document as it gives an overview. It is intended for doctors, but it gives a thorough symptom list a few pages down.
If you think you might have it, you'll want to find a LLMD, a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor who is familiar with the disease and knows how to make a clinical diagnosis. Unfortunately, many doctors also think that blood tests are perfect, which they are not. Many people have suffered unnecessarily for years because they tested negative and then were told they didn't have it.
It's also controversial among doctors with Infect. disease docs saying a month of abx will cure you and remaining symptoms are your immune systemoverreacting, and LLMDs saying we'll treat you until your symptoms are gone.
You can come to the Lyme forum to learn more. It's a far more varied and serious disease than most people realize.
