ive been to a few doctors and i have not been given a diagnosis. im so fed up and would appreciate any helpful suggestions of what this is that i have.
it all started with a feeling of off balance and fatigue. One day, around 9 months ago, i threw up because i had eaten too much (it was voluntary and to this day i regret it). i developped severe tummy aches and a huge headache the likes of which i had never known (i dont get migraines); i go to the er and they give me pain killers basically. turns out later that i had developped ulcers, but thats not the concerning part. the nights after, i get extreme insomnia and i develop brain zaps. the insomnia lasted a long while; i had to resort to some sleeping pills which worked sometimes and at at other times not. this takes a hold of my life until i start to feel like maybe things would get better although there is still some insomnia, head zaps and weird head pressure.
However, one day, while walking i get this immense sense of fatigue and i head home. This is followed by an episode of dizziness that lasts for a few hours. I wake up next day and my vision has completely altered; it looks like the floors seem slanted and things look weird, i cannot really express how. my balance is off; it seemed like my footsteps were not coordonated with my vision. i would be in a strange room and i would have the sense that the room was crooked, falling off even to one side. Sometimes it seemed like my environment was in flux, motion even though it wasnt. I go see a neurologist who asks for an MRI; the result shows that theres nothing wrong there. i go see an ENT who suggests that maybe i got an inner ear infection that would soon heal. I even went to a psychiatrist for medicine to help with the incurrent anxiety...
Here Iam many months after and ive had a myriad of of symptoms, the latest of which is nausea, weird head feeling, feeling very feeble. ive had tinnitus, constricted throat, stiff neck (all the way down to shoulder cradle at one point), weird shaky vision, hyperventilation at one point, brain zaps that gave way now to a weird head feeling (i can only express it by comparing it to the way one feels when stung, but inside the head), panic attacks, etc. I feel so down because of all this, because of the uncertainty of my situation. ive checked neurology, ive checked if i had lyme...all lead to dead ends. i have no clue what is happening to me and im scared.
Thank you for reading this and again, any helpful suggestions wouls be much appreciated.
