Possible brain trauma?
After I had my daughter 5 months ago I started having chronic migraines that cause nausea & vomiting.  Since then there have been several other things such as coordination & speech problems (i.e. swearing I said 6 months when everyone else says I said 6 years or thinking I'm putting a cup to my mouth but instead the cup veers right onto my cheek & the drink pours down my body).  I'm also having visual disturbances such as hallucinations when I'm awake.  I'm having writing problems such as skipping words when I write but thinking I wrote the words down.  I've been having pain, tingling & numbness in my head & neck as well as upper back & shoulders.  All these things just started adding themselves to the list that is too long to write down now.  They're becoming more frequent & more difficult to bear.  My primary physician has referred me to a neurologist but my problem is that my husband lost his job last week so we are uninsured right now & will be until he finds another job.  I'm trying to decide if this issue is serious enough to visit the neurologist & foot the outrageous bill or if it's okay to maybe put it off for maybe 4 months from now.  I've basically turned into the world's biggest klutz, making little mistakes when driving as well.  I have an infant, so this scares me - putting her life at risk like this.  Oh, I might mention that after I had my daughter I turned into a severe insomniac & now when I sleep I wake up in so much pain, usually with a headache as well, & I purchased a brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top king-size bed this last June so there's no reason I should feel like this at all.  Please, please let me know your most expert opinion.  I'm only 28 but lately I feel like I'm going on 60 & the last thing I want to do is leave my baby girl without a mother.  Thank you so much for your time!
