Trying to find diagnosis

In reviewing the posts they seem very insightful so I am writing hoping for input. For the past 4-1/2 years I've had the following:

Sudden episodes with varying severity:
• “in &out of awareness” for hours/sometimes weeks
• Can’t talk or form thoughts
• Face contorts
• Spine burns for hrs
• Nausea, stomach upset/diarrhea
• Balance/co-ordination issues
• Painful muscle contractions.  
• Muscles burn like lifting weights & maxed out capacity for repetitions..will happen if pick up even TV clicker
• Memory/reading comprehension problems
• Problems with simple math
• Left eyelid visibly “droopy” for days
• Tingling/burning in left side of face
• Quick changes in temperatures - hot to cold or cold to hot
• Sudden emotional changes..very happy/excited or sad/stressed
• Bending over to pick something up and then raising up quickly
• Waking up quickly – if startled by a noise or alarm clock
• Being startled even when awake  
• Waiting too long to eat

I would greatly appreciate any insight..Thanks, Vic

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. The symptoms may or may not be related to one another. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GI infections inflammations, postural issues, neuro-muscular causes such as neuropathies/ myopathies, degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, hormonal/ endocrine abnormalities, stress/ anxiety etc. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by an internist and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
