    Hi Cats Eyes

    The symptoms you have could be due to ME but they could also be due to a few other things. If your painkillers haven't worked, you are resting and have reduced any stimulation (light, noise) and you are still feeling bad I think you need to see a doctor, if only to put your mind at rest.

    Let us know how you get on

    Hi cats eyes sad

    I'm so sorry you feel so poorly .... you really have had a rough time of it lately. It could be just a very bad migraine excerbated by your ME, the injection and, of course your brain surgery.

    Have you got any sort of rash or neck stiffness? If either of these occur you must seek medical attention, but I am pretty sure that it is a combination of all your medical problems, so try not to worry.

    Take care and do hope you feel better soon. Do let us know when you are feeling better. Wish there was more we could do to help sad

    Hello and thank you both for your concern, I saw my psychologist yesterday, she is so nice and helpful, she is going to refer me back to the neurosurgery department as she thinks I have a problem, I have been in tears all morning as I am so frightened but also glad that things are moving for me, I have trouble getting my words out and getting my words mixed up, and it is getting worse, I have been like this for a while now and it has been very difficult to live with, its nice to talk to you on this forum as you listen and understand, thank you :lol:

    Hi Cats eyes, sorry you are feeling so bad.

    I was just going to ask if you feel any better, then just noticed you beat me to it.

    Just had a delivery turn up, in my lunch hour, again :x otherwise i would have beaten you to it.

    Good to see thing should be moving, just hope you fell a lot better afterwards.

    Hi there cats eyes :D

    So pleased that you have found your psychologist helpful ..... it makes such a difference when someone will at least listen and offer advice.

    If it's any consolation we all get very mixed up with words and I am finding that so often lately I just stop mid sentence :shock: can't for the life of me remember what I was talking about :oops: I've started to explain that I have ME and this will happen occasionally. I usually find people very understanding on the whole.

    So you are not alone :D

    Take care and do let us know how you get on with the neurologist.
