I am a 29y/o female, very healthy - eat right and exercise, don't smoke or drink.
In April of this year I started having severe head pain and heaviness, which turned into numbness throughtout my body, slurred speech, vertical nystagmus, balance problems, etc. I was diagnosed with Post-infectious cerebellitis. It took almost two full months to "recover." I had CT scan, MRI, lumbar puncture, blood work - just about everything imaginable. I was also tested for MS, Guillan barre, epstein bar, heavy metal toxicity, meningitis. All tests came back negative
Several months out now, I still am constantly having problems. I almost always seem to have a headache and heavy-head feeling, along with pressure in my head/face area. My vision is pretty good, except when I get tired and then it tends to blur and sometimes when I close my eyes I can feel them bouncing up and down again. At times I am lethargic and I get tired extremely easily. (daily tasks are sometimes very difficult to complete)
Is there something else I should be looking at? or different treatment options? I feel like I've done everything and still am not feeling up to par or close to where I was before. Please help! I just feel miserable all the time and I would like to have my life back.
