Symptoms:

dizziness
sometimes legs get weak and feels like i'm going to faint when i walk
pinky and ring finger on right hand are numb
head twitching
eye shifting back and forth when trying to focus (only occasionally)
tense on back of head and temples
hard to stay asleep, wake up every 2-3 hours during the night
Blood work- normal
Ears, nose and throat doctor- said everything was normal
Had x-ray on chest- no fluid in lungs

The ears nose and throat doctor referred me to a neurologist but i'm still waiting for my appointment, i'm pretty nervous thinking that this may have to do with a brain tumor or cancer, the doctor has no idea what it may be he said there are soo many possibilities, if anyone has gone through this please help and give advice, it would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

  • Well, I can't tell you what you have, but I can tell you the eyeball twitching is called nystagmus and is usually related to the inner ear. I had similar symptoms for a long time and actually did pass out once. They diagnosed the nystagmus, felt that it was a virus, gave me steroids (for the inflammation of the inner ear) and it was like magic! I had been to all different docs, thought I was going crazy!

  • Thank you, i went to the neurologist today and he didn't give me an mri, scan or anything. What he did tell me was it's most likely due to the inner ear, but didn't give me any medicine for it.

  • I had the same thing! My ear nose and throat doctor said I have BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO. I put a link there for you to try. He gave me meds called xyzal and told me to do the excersises on the website I put here for you and itworked. I could not stand the eye movement. Do these and ask your dr. if that medicine is ok for you as well.I hope you feel better!http://www.tchain.com/otoneurology/disorders/bppv/bppv.htmlSymptoms: dizzinesssometimes legs get weak and feels like i'm going to faint when i walkpinky and ring finger on right hand are numbhead twitchingeye shifting back and forth when trying to focus (only occasionally)tense on back of head and templeshard to stay asleep, wake up every 2-3 hours during the nightBlood work- normalEars, nose and throat doctor- said everything was normalHad x-ray on chest- no fluid in lungsThe ears nose and throat doctor referred me to a neurologist but i'm still waiting for my appointment, i'm pretty nervous thinking that this may have to do with a brain tumor or cancer, the doctor has no idea what it may be he said there are soo many possibilities, if anyone has gone through this please help and give advice, it would be greatly appreciated.:confused: http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/images/misc/progress.gif

  • I have new symptoms, although the dizziness has stopped I still have head twitching and a very tense feeling on the back of my head. When I lay down it feels like my head body and legs are having jitters or a jumpy feeling. Also when I walk my legs feel pretty weak and like they r jittery.
