I am so sorry but this is likely to be a long post - I am absolutely desperate for some advice. About 8 weeks ago I was at work (at my PC) when all of a sudden I lost my vision (very blurry) for about a minute and felt dizzy.. it was almost like someone had turned off a switch and the power went out. I gained my composure but felt very jittery afterwards and a little nauseous. 2 weeks later I developed a migraine headache and felt sick, dizzy and sometimes would suffer with brain shakes that I could not control. Headaches are still with me 6 weeks on and eyesight is blurry with occasional vertigo and sometimes I wake up shaking (also numbness to left arm and hand)! To add to the symptoms, the past two weeks I have had neck and shoulder pain and now having problems with ear pain/pressure and swollen glands. I've been to the doctors several times and they have suggested I have Migraine (8 weeks worth?) or possibly Fibromyalgia! I've presented to A&E three times as the symptoms can be severe and I have felt out of control. I do have High Blood Pressure (treated with Ramipril) and an Underactive Thyroid Gland (treated with Levothyroxine). I've had blood tests(all normal), BP is high and CT Scan came back normal. The medical profession is treating me like it's all in my head and asking whether I'm anxious, but seriously, 2 months later and I'm at the end of my tether! I am seeing a Neurologist in a week (paying for Private treatment), however I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience and what the outcome was? I'm really worried that this is something more serious and I have seriously never suffered for this amount of time in my whole life. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you
