So my story begins back in 2017. It was early May and I had worked a 26 hour straight shift at work due to an emergency. A day or so after I noticed I was quite dizzy. Almost like I was drunk or had taken Nyquil/gravol. I thought maybe I was just sick or tired. I went up to the cottage and I found my self stumbling a lot especially when walking on the dock. I went to the hospital after 1 week of symptoms and they tried to tell me it was just vertigo and it would clear up in some time. The symptoms got worse and I started to feel like a fuzzy haze that made it really hard for my eyes to focus and I became very sensitive to light, and heavy stimulus (In shopping malls and busy stores) This lasted for about 6 weeks and one day I woke up and it was gone. It the returned in the fall of 2017 so I made an appointment with my GP but by the time I was able to get in to her it was already gone. She set me up with a MRI in March of 2018. I had the MRI which showed nothing concerning. I went pretty well all 2018 with 0 symptoms. This year though in april I felt it starting again. Started gradual again with the dizziness being the first symptom. As time went on my vision got worse, the sensitivity to light and sound surfaced and then intense brain fog and concentration issues. I find it extremely difficult to troubleshoot or even do just a simple math problem. It is almost like my brain just freezes. I also find it hard to focus when reading or in conversations and I have such trouble coming up with yur right words and my memory is poor. I have now had it since april and it has not went away. I had one week in September where I say I was about 70 percent better and believe it or not I had a sinus cold at the time. My doctor finally has referred me to a neurologist and I see him in feb 2020. I also should mention I get very extreme neck pain at times with this and when my neck is in pain the symptoms seem to be worse. I do see a chiropractor and when he treats me I do find my symptoms improve but only for an hour or so after treatment. Any idea what this is ? It really is ruing my life and I am extremely worried I am going to get to a point where I can no longer perform at my job.
