... I thought maybe someone would at least give me the time of day ... obviously not ...
My internist is referring me to a Neurologist because my symptoms are accumulating and worsening.
Nausea 24/7 now.
Weakness in hands and arms.
Seeing black snow on upward gaze, top third of vision.
Upward gaze intensifies symptoms of nausea, dizziness, and weakness.
Touching walls to balance self
Sleeping a lot
Problems with temperature regulation.
Oh forgot ... the worst of the worst, can't sleep or rest my head on the back of my head. Feels like pressure causes dull pain. I have to sleep on my side with my face almost buried in the pillows.
Confusing directions, turning to backside instead of right side
Word confusion, might for meant, left for right
Mow for vacuum
Vacuum for mow
I used to think this was all hypothyroid symptoms but now I know it's something else and it's getting worse everyday. EEK!
I'm a little concerned about what you are describing.
If this has started since any new medications, then I would suspect that. Sometimes a start of too many new medications at the same time is a not so good idea.
Could be a warning of an impending stroke. Could be strokes along with stroke related seizures. It could be something totally different.
My advice - - don't wait for the neurologist!!! Go to the hospital. You might just have an allergic or sensitive reaction to the medication or it might be something life threatening. You will be checked out much faster at a hospital.
I am on no new medications except for nausea due to the symptoms which keep getting worse and accumulating at the same time.
If they do get worse than this I will go to the ER. I've been there enough so I know the routine.
Was reading your posts and have had very similar events over the last few months. Have had no injury or disease process diagnosed. Am not on any medications. Was wondering if you ever had a conclusion to your symptoms?
i found this through looking for something else but have had alot of your symptoms, not all at the same time but some together others on and off for a few years, while waiting for your appointment i'd have a look at books on M.E / chronic fatique syndrome or amagalm poisoning ( not sure how you spell it) it's basically the metal filling work done by dentists. initally i had symptoms of metal taste in mouth, dizzy, sickness,loss of word retrieval, slured speech, fatigue ect lucky my husband knew about these weird things so i went and had all mercury fillings taken out by a specialist dentist and had my filling replaced with composit ones, i found after a couple of weeks my syptoms improved alot, my GP refered me to a psychiatrist thinking i was depressed, i spoke to her about mercury poisoning and M.E and to my suprise she agreed that they could be the problems. a while later i was refered to a different hospital and through having 12 vials of blood taken for numerous things, an xray and a complete physical i was diagnosed with M.E, this didn't solve my problems as it's a matter of managing your energy/time/rest daily and 7years on i still have it but am managing most of the time but it does help to know what the cause is. my advise, continue with ALL your medical appointments, don't be embarrassed to tell them strange things,read up on the things i mentioned it may not have anything to do with you but it wouldn't hurt to look and if it is like you mention it to a few different doctors , some understand M.E and others don't and fob it off. GOOD LUCK
