Hi, I am 24 yrs of age and have been sick for the past 2 months. The first month, I had tiredness, right side headaches, weightloss and feverish feeling. Then, I had an episode that lasted about 3-4 hours where I had confusion, disorientation, tingling in right hand and right leg, slurred speech, difficulty understanding or answering questions, difficulty breathing and heavy limbs. Ever since, I have been having right hand, right shoulder and right chest pain. I have a paralyzed right vocal cord, weakness in my right arms, shoulder and leg. I also have pain in my right side neck sometimes. I also have severe shooting right sided head ache and I am not normally prone to headaches. These symptoms have altered my lifestyle since I get tired or bogged down with pain by the end of the morning. I initially had hot flashes when I'll feel hot and flushed. Now, for the past 4 nights, I have been waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat and I have to change my clothes before getting back into bed. I don't feel rested in the mornings and wake up tired. I have shortness of breath with exercise and sometimes tightness in neck and chest and find it difficult to take in air. I am NOT asthmatic. A PFT test revealed that I am unable to take deep breaths.
I have been to and ENT and a neurologist. I did CT scan of chest, MRI of brains, soft tissue neck and cervical spine, blood tests for thyroid, mono, syphillis, wbc, cbc, lyme and a couple of other autoimmune diseases, EMG and EEG. All of them came out normal. My Vitamin D count is 19 and I have started taking 1000 iu of it.
I am a 24 yr old female not under undue stress, I get 'brain fog' sometimes, just discovered the term but it describes how I feel. Also I weigh 101.5 lbs and am 5"2'. I used to weigh 109 lbs. My right eye is weaker than my left eye.
