Hi, well here goes... im a 21 year old female. I might aswell tell the full story to get to the point, apologies i know its a long one....
About 2 months ago i started getting severe abdominal pain on my upper right side which landed me in hospital a few times... i saw many doctors/surgeons and had many tests/scans all to which were clear nothing was found, they tried me on several types of medication/pain relief for different things to rule things out. i was then refferd for an endoscopy upper GI a couple of weeks ago which was also clear they took 9 random biopsys which im now waiting for those results.. stumach pain is still present at the moment.. a few weeks after getting the tummy pain i started to become really poorly being sick , extremely light headed, bad headaches and eye pain, no appetite, very weak and numb in places. Couldnt move for days.. Thought it may be a side affect to a strong medication my doc started me on pregabalin as docs thought may be something to do with nerves.. or just a bug my appetite then started to come back a week after all that, but it left me with a foggy head, weaknesses and strange eye site almost if i was constantly in a daze. Which i am still having now 2 months later.. now that brings me to now still with a foggy head, weaknesses, light headed.. i started to develop a severe intense burning sensation at the back of my head didnt really act upon it at first until it started to become regular. However they are now really bad and intense and moving to the right side of my head, which now and again goes to the other side for a tiny while but mainly stays on the right feels like burning /tightness sensation and numbness, i get really bad pain above and behind my eye, feels like somethings going to burst.. my eyes are more red than usual and feel strained side of my face goes numb i also have a sore neck and jaw from this nothing relieves them i have to sit through them a feel like im going to collapse every time they start soooo intense! ive started getting few of these attacks a day they start a couple of hours after i wake and can last from half an hour to a few hours, pain relif does not help at all had this now for another 2-3 weeks.. of course my doctor is up-to-date with all this he's baffled himself, but since this i cannot stop my self from worrying i mean its acssesive worrying!! I get so worked up and cant stop crying im constantly stressed and depressed from it, its ruined me i haven't been able to work for 2 months! Im not the same person anymore i cant go out and do normal things or have fun even through i do try. Its a nightmare! Im beyond frightened somethings wrong in my head because of this pain i know worrying etc is making things worse but i cant seem to relax at all! I have been reffered for an MRI scan which is on the 13th of sept next week.. im worried what its going to show.. i have been told my cholesterol is high also from a recent blood test which il be seeing the nurse about on the 21st.. can anyone shed any light on this or has anyone experienced the same or similar things to this? Any advide on similar goings on or any advise in general will be much appreciated!!! As im terrified. Thankyou!
