throat problems



October 4, 2010 I saw a speech therapist today and found out I have muscle weakness in my throat.  They are not sure what has caused this, and they are sending me to have more tests done.  To make sure I am not getting food or liquids into my lungs with could cause pneumonia.

Memory loss



They say "probable MS" to my face but, I checked medical records and there isn't anything listed.  My veteran doctors are horrible!  In May 2009 I started with rt leg footdrop.  June my rt hip went and then in July the rt side of my face dropped and my eye closed on me for over 2 hours where I couldn't open it, I couldn't count to 10 either.  (I was in a wheelchair from May-Dec 2009.)  In Dec 2009 I started to walk with a 4 prong cane and then in Mar-Apr 2010 I started with a reg cane.  Anyway, to this day the rt side of my face will drop and the rt eye closes and opens on its own.  My rt hip/leg will just drop on me and I end up dragging my leg.  I have memory issues too.  Of course, I still have the footdrop that comes and goes as well.  My ANA is 1:320 now.  My spinal tap in April 2010 showed 4 bands of MS.  I supposedly have a brain and spinal lesion as well.  My tests for Lupus have supposedly been negative.  They have me listed as unemployable.  Meaning I can't work but, I still cannot get any help from the Veteran doctor's and with no insurance I don't know how I can get anyoneelse to help?  
I am also doing the foot detox and my fibromyalgia pain has gone down significantly so even though people say that machine doesn't do anything it works for me so I would suggest it to anyone to try for themselves before they judge they might get a surprise.

Showed 4 bands of Multiple Scherosis


On another note:
I have had difficulty swallowing now for over a year.  There always feels like there is something there.

Numbness and tingling



I had an SSEP done outside the VA system a couple of months ago and they said I had a lesion on my spine.  When I took this information to my Neurologist with the Southern Nevada VA System (Las Vegas, NV) he said they must have made a mistake.  I can get NOWHERE with the VA system.  I woke up this morning and my left hand/arm was numb.  My right eye vision was horrible like a white film over the eye.  I had aches and pain all over neck, back, legs, and rt hip.

On another note:
I had several EEG's done on my right leg/foot through the VA System and they jacked up the voltage to make my foot move and when that didn't work they physically forced my foot to get the results they needed.  I NEVER EVER want to go through that pain again.  It should be listed as inhumane what they did!
