march 2013 I started experiencing extreme lower back pain of unknown origin and weight loss. march 16th I found an inflamed inguinal lymph node right side. stabbing pain localized under my right rib. The pain extended down the inside and back side if my right leg. entire abdominal section on my right side started aching but the localized stabbing pain under my right rib. bed ridden since march 18th. BP average 113/153. tingling sensation in the medial portion of my right arm all the way down to my pinky, ring, and middle finger. Went to ER with severe chest pain over my heart, dyspnea, confusion, and a BP of 163/118 @ 128 bpm. EKG found nothing. The tingling in my arm turned to numbness. My GP doubled my BP meds and Rx donperidone suspecting an ulcer.April 7th ER again with extreme pain on right side, dyspnea, confusion, and a drooping sensation on the right side of my face, extreme muscle stiffness right side of my neck, dysphasia on the right side of my throat. gave me a shot of Toridol. my doctor put me on a BuTrans patch (5mcg/h). I gave it 72h and nothing. increased to (10mcg/h) and it is curbing the pain. I can not stand for more then 10 minutes. Short term memory loss. experiencing diplopia in the morning and at night and blurred vision in my right eye. I have lost 32lbs, anorexia, constantly feeling dehydrated. Now I have found what I assume is an mediasternal lymph node below my xhyphoid process to the right. loosing my balance while standing straight. I also "lost time" two nights ago when I took a sip of water then woke up with the bottle completely empty beside me in the bed lying in a huge puddle. I have no recollection after putting the bottle to my lips. I have had two rounds of blood work, an ultrasound, a pelvic exam, a complete cat scan, and have seen an optometrist. All they can find is one slightly increased inflammatory marker and the inflamed lymph node and NOTHING else.
So I went and requested all my medical documents today. I have a contracted gallbladder, dependent atelectasis in my right lower lobe, high C- reactive protein (10.4, normal range 0-10), and undefined squamous cells in my uterus, and positive for cocci bacteria in my vagina. None of which my physician told me about. Maybe this will help.
