Ok. I know you experts out there are tired of hearing stories like mine, but I'm to the point where I think I'm going crazy. I've talked to my family and husband about my symptoms, but it seems like they make me feel even crazier. They know someone or have some kind of know-it-all reply that makes me feel like they think I'm just making everything up or something. I've noticed weird things happening to me now for about five or six years, but when something happens, it seems to go away within a week or so.
2005-extreme pain in rib cage. Couldn't stand and felt like I couldn't breathe. Thought it was gas. Husband thought it was indigestion. For about five days, this pain would come, last about an hour or two, and disappear. Haven't experienced it again yet. Still have no idea what it was.
2006- randomly woke up one day and my left hand was numb, cold, and tingly. My forearm up to my shoulder felt like it was on fire and that my veins were flowing with lava. That lasted for about a week and disappeared. Dr. said it was probably a nerve and did nothing about it.
2007-my eyes started moving by themselves. Back and forth in a horizontal way. I can't predict when it's going to happen. Sometimes, I close my eyes and see bright flashing lights in the corners of my eyes.
2008-extreme pain in joints and fatigue. Everyone thought I had mono. No mono. No hypothryroid. Just stress.
2009--tingling arms, legs, torso, face,etc. Somedays I get an extreme itchy-burning feeling all over or on certain parts of my body. My left eye gets a bad headache behind it sometimes, and I have bad bouts with double vision. Sometimes, at night, the reflectors on the road look like they're stretched five feet high and there are two white lines. It seems like there's something cloudy in my left eye all the time, too. Oh yeah, when I bend my head down real fast, I get this shocking sensation that runs all the way down to my toes. Scares me to death.
I have no idea what's going on. But I have a neurology appt. feb. 26th, and I just can't stand waiting that long! My brain MRI was done around this time last month and it came up normal. I don't know the strength of the machine. The doctor said my vitamin D was low, so he put me on a prescription for that. I'm 23 and newly married, and I'm scared and anxious. I would like to know I'm not crazy. Please give me some assurance or insight or something. I would greatly appreciate it so much!!! Thanks again,
