I would be incredibly grateful if anyone could help or point me in the right direction.
I've now suffered from balance problems when walking for 2 months and seems to be getting worse.
It feels like I am walking on a trampoline and the ground moves and jumps up and down when I take a step. No vertigo or dizzyness when I sit still.
It came on suddenly 2 months ago. The only things that happened I can remember before that:
- 5 days before I got pain in the back of my head, like a sore spot to press on
- 3 days before I felt ill, like I was coming down with a cold but no symptoms. Next day I woke up and felt incredibly fatigued and tired. The tiredness has persisted, but not as bad.
- 1 day before, I had a lot of neck pain and upper back pain, this is likely because of my herniated disc at C5/C6, which also gives arm pain. Diagnosed by MR.
I had something very similar to this 1.5 years ago, where it lasted 1 month, but I hit my head hard before that.
I had a bunch of tests done. CSF mainly normal, a few white cells, no protein. No neurosyphilis or HIV. Mostly normal blood tests I think. Brain MRI showed no stroke, bleading, tumor, but 30 or so white spots, which I knew were there several years ago. Doc thought it might be from birth, but should rule out vasculitis (unlikely).
Not any major weakness, my legs do feel heavy and tired. Feel overall weak, but no objective major weakness.
I also have a lot of other symptoms:
- Chronic headache (3 years)
- Back pain and right pectoral muscle pain (for a long time)
- Very tired
- Buzzing in feet, most in left, sometimes painful pinches in calfs (had this for maybe 2-3)
Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!
