SO, I've been diagnosed with ME/CFS since last year, but probably had it for about three. I've had a lot of weird and unexplainable symptoms but recently I have started getting numbness at the back of my head, normally just on the right side which has been in the right side of my face too once. It comes and goes but often worsens when lying on it, which I can't really get around as I move around and change sides in my sleep. I also had numbness on my right hand side after lying on it earlier today.
like I said, I've had a lot of weird and honestly, terrifying symptoms but this one takes the cake. I went to the doctor about it before along with my tension headaches that I've been getting too but all he did was test me for a stroke and then said it's fine... it's not fine! At this point, I'm afraid to go to sleep incase I wake up numb permanently, or worse, paralyzed.
So, I guess my question is: has anyone else here experienced any scary symptoms like that? Any advice on what to do? I want to go in there and demand he test me further but I am so sick of going to the doctor and feeling like a hypochondriac and then having them not listen to me and say I'm fine when I'm clearly not.
p.s I should say, I also have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia too.
