I know it’s more of a book than a post, but I NEED SOME HELP!
Can anybody relate or have input to theses symptoms/issues? I’m so frustrated that I just want to cry. I feel like all I’m doing is treating symptoms & yet never really getting to the bottom of what is really going on. I did have a bad head injury, and yes some of the cognitive issues started then. (CT/MRIs come back inconclusive or unremarkable) I feel like Drs hear head injury and use that as a way to explain ALL symptoms. I’ve been dealing with more of the symptoms prior to the head injury than the ones that came after. I’m looking for any thoughts or suggestions. I’m ready to live my life again. Sorry it’s a bit long, but I’m desperate for help.
Here is a list of symptoms that have been going on and getting worse for 5+ years...
-Extreme fatigue (some days are really bad others manageable.
-Cronic pain in joints/muscles (especially joints in from core down, behind my knees, hands and large muscles)
-Multiple types of seizures
-Memory loss / retention
-Lack of coordination
-Trouble with fine motor skills
-Pins & needles
-Numbness in lower limbs and sometimes hands and face
-Difficulty walking/Gait abnormalities (to the extent of having to use crutches or chair)
-Constant muscle spasms -Tremors
-Sensitive to over stimulation
-Vit D & Iron deficiency
Mental health battles
(I do have a great therapist)
-Asult/Abuse starting in childhood, repeated traumas abuse/trauma as adult
-Major Kidney infection (about the same time some of symptoms started)
-One major head trauma (some symptoms started from that, but not all)
-MTHFR genetic mutation
-Uterine cancer _Historectomy
-Unexplained & complete gallbladder failure
-I build up a tolerance to medications, vitamins, OTC meds and anesthesia abnormally fast. I have woken up during multiple surgeries (NOT COOL 😬😧)
That’s all I can think of right now, and I’m just exhausted thinking about it all.
Like I said, I’m open to any of your thoughts, questions and suggestions. (or even just a little encouragement. I could really use it right now)
Thank you for taking your time to read my post and letting me get real with you. You have been such a amazing support group and I am so blessed by it!
