I climbed Mnt. Kilimanjaro 1 year ago exactly. We summitted Oct 3, 2005. I experienced high altitude sickness for four days/nights requiring oxygen to get me through the nights. I experienced intense headaches, muscle spasms nausia and vomiting. Upon my descent, the symptoms did not let up for days after.

One year later, I still have headaches and mild disorientation, nausia, blurry vision and slight incoordination. Today I went for a CT scan to make sure everything is okay.

anyone else ever experienced anything like this?

  • I am searching for help also when I saw your note. I saw an ABC show last night where the affects of, for example, motion sickness never goes away after it hits. There is a name for it. Both women featured in the new article stated that when driving in the car the affects disappear. Perhaps the same is happening w/you as they discovered this is a 'brain' condition. There is a neurologist in NY that has developed prototype devices to wear that actually remove the symptoms. I don't know if this applies to you. But I know from having multiple medical conditions that don't seem to be something doctors recognize, that it does take away your life. I hope this is helpful to you.
