Im new here. I have not been misdiagnose. But I have been fighting problems for years and no one listens. Finally I had a heart scare and the doc listened. Nothing wrong with my heart but he did sugest a neurologist. The heart scare felt like this. I have a tightening of the muscles inbetween my shoulder blades. My chest tightened and was painful. I felt nauces and threw up. I felt week in my muscles. I was also told i was flush.

I hope some one can relate with these problems. I am scare that something serouse is wrong. Here is a list of the other problems I have delt with for years. I made this list for my doctor.

Thanks for reading this. I have to go make dinner now. I making chicken pot pie. Take care,


These symptoms happen every couple of months to my best recollection. I have never kept track of when they happened.
My speech slurs. The right side of my face feels that the muscles wont work right.
I get numbness on my right side. Some times it is my leg, arm, face and sometimes my hole right side and once my hole body. But I can feel my touch. But it feels like a numb feeling.
I get tremors in my hands and once I was told my hole body tremored
My right leg muscle tightens and wont relax. This has happened when I was at rest and walking.
Every since my son was born I have had migraines . 7years this December They can last for 3 days.
I get a pin ****k that feels cold once or twice at a time on my right leg or right arm. This happens the same time I get the numb feeling.
I have been holding a class and it slipped from my hand. I did not notice it dropped until it hit the ground.
My memory has gotten worse over the years. I will forget something and not be able to remember it for a hour or two and then sometimes I can not remember it for a few days. It would be like my pin number. Things I have known for year.
I have had a sharp pain in my right hand. When it happens it is located in one spot and will last about a minute. This happens once every couple of months. The pain is very sharp. And is in random places. But always my right hand.

I have dealt with these problems all my life.
I am always tired. I have always been tired even as a child.
My feet and hands are always cold and I always feel colder that it is. For example it will be 70 degrees in the house and I am cold. My family will tell me it is warm. I feel comfortable when it is 75 or 78 degrees. I have delt with this for as long as I can remember.
Elementary age I felt my right leg was week occasionally and it did give out several times and I fell. Once I was walking and the other time I was standing.
I am not sure is this is just allergies or something else going on. I had developed a rash to two of my hay fever allergies. I get a rash when I am holding a cat or the cat rubs up against me that has allot of dander and also when I am gardening and the plant rubs up against my skin. This also has been bothering me for about 7 years.

Drugs and symptoms I have had but don’t currently take the drugs.
Depakote- Caused seizure signs
Lithium- I had severe tremors that would not go away.
Prozac- It caused seizures.
Wellbutrin- Seizure signs

After I had my seizures I would have a burst of energy.
I have had 3 seizures. One was when I was a teenager and was caused by prescription drugs. Another because if Prozac. And the other one because of a loud noise and I was taking Wellbutrin at that time.
