My mother developed squinty, watery eyes, strange speech (like a whiney child), and high emotionality (depression symptoms) about 6 months ago. She has started having gran mal seizures (but she has a history of seizures from childhood, although they subsided for over 40 years ago), and the doctors cannot determine the cause. Stroke has been ruled out. She has pressure behind the eyes and enlarged brain vesicles. She can still communicate and make sense, but things are definitely weird. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? We are open to any suggestions and help!! Thank you!!

  • Update...it has been discovered that she had a problem with her tailbone causing her spinal fluid to not circulate correctly. Had it relocated and her dizziness went away immediately. Still has the other problems though with no idea what to do, the medical doctors are puzzled. The eyes are not as bad now. A practitioner of alternative therapies said she has high levels of formaldehyde in her system and some other unbalanced chemicals. This is the most unusual thing I've ever witnessed. (BTW, her ventricles are enlarged, not vesicles.) Still hoping someone out there has some suggestions for us.
