I'm postimg in the hope someone may recognise my symptoms & help me work out what's going on.
My main symptoms are:
Burning pain & itching that began above left breast after minor surgery a few years back to hAve a benign mole removed. Over time this itching & pain has spread through armpit, down side of ribs, under left arm, left shoulder & up left side of neck. Felt fine, Dr said nerve damage so just lived with it.
I became unwell about a year ago when this burning itching sensation reached my upper spine & felt deeper. Since then I've has rapidly declining symptoms including:
Severely stiff neck & pressure with itching at base of skull.
Constant headaches that are getting worse through scalp, middle ears, jaw, Temples & nose., Can hardly touch my scalp now.
Severely impaired cognition, memory & disorientation that's getting worse.
Tinnitus & muffled hearing.
Rapid weight loss despite normal diet.
Weakness & sometimes numbness on shoulders & upper arms
Facial & tongue numbness
Occasion bleeding into the skin (like pin pick red dots)
Skin problems: erupted in several sore spots in the areas where the nerve pain is that wouldn't heal. Later told they are new moles.
Acne & tiny itchy spots
That's about it. It's ruining my life. I try & carry on pretending I'm fine but the symptoms have become too severe to ignore. I can deal with pain but not this worsening mental function & tinnitus.
Tests only showed a hormone imbalance, B vitamin deficiencies, high tryptase, sometimes high white cells & food intolerances.
If anyone has any suggestions please help.
I'm usually a very strong, vivacious woman but this has reduced me to not wanting to go on. I'm existing not living. Predominantly due to my cognitive function getting so bad & not recognising where I am half the time.
