  • Yes, She Has Had Brain Scans Several Times, And The Doctors Tell Her There Is Nothing On Her Brain, I Had Saw A Tv Show Once, Where A Young Girl About 15 Years Old Had The Same Problem, And The Brain Scan Didn't Show Anything, Then Her Mother Got On The Internet Determined To Find An Answer, And She Had Found Something That Was To Do With Her Daughters Head Pressing Down On Her Spine Or Something Of That Sort, But I Cannot Remember The Name Of This Condition, If You Know What The Cause Of This Problem Is, Or Know A Name For This Condition, Please Let Me Know.Thanks

  • Hi,I have had the same problems. I just found out I have disc bulging at c5-c6andc6-c7 and 2 degenerative disc. It took a long time to find out why I was having migrains and my upper back burns. I also have Muscular Distrophy. We kept trying to see how it was related. My head aches get so bad I start vomiting. Head aches make you feel miserable. I know how she feels. Hope this helped some. Oh I to was having seizures.

  • I read your post and it sounds so very familiar to me. My husband starting having "migraines" a little over 8 years ago. We searched for a long time and went to many different doctors. Finally, we went to a neurosurgeon that saw something on his MRI. He was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari Malformation. Basically, his brain had herniated through the bottom opening of his skull. He had brain surgery to correct this 4 years ago. I wish I could say that he is now better. But, he continued to have headaches after the surgery. It got to the point that when he would have a headache he would begin vomitting and then he would have, what we considered to be a seizure, although he was never diagnosed with having one. His body would stiffen up, eyes roll to the back of his head, heart rate drop and continue vomitting. So, we had to be very careful that he did not choke. He would come back around slowly and have a glazed look. The good news is that since this time we have been seeing a neuroscience doctor that seems to have him on the right medicines to help. Still not perfect but it is a work in progress. Your sister should really go see a neurologist and have a MRI done. Just keep searching. My husband got so tired of hearing..well, he has migraines, but we finally found someone that wanted to help him. I will keep you in my prayers, I wish you the best and I will check in to see how things are going.

  • There is a website by Raymond Francis. He also wrote a book, Never Be Sick Again. Completely changed my life. Bottom line - If your doctor doesnt know what is wrong with you, he is uneducated in health and nutrition. Your diagnosis is simple: You are either experiencing a massive deficiency or toxicity to something, or both. There could be a single item in your home that may be causing these reactions. Believe it or not, newly painted bedrooms, rugs, furnture, etc can be extremely toxic...Seriously, read the book I've mentioned. Track down everything you can previous to this problem..what life changes were made... Also, the antibiotics are destroying your digestive system and making soooo many more problems. I have found that using a high quality Pro-Biotic works wonders for this problem. You may experience gas, bloating, cramps, constipation.... all signs that the probiotics are working because there's a war going on inside between friendly bacteria and bad bacteria... and it will go away when the friendly bacteria take over. I would also check out the website by MERCOLA - Dr Joe Mercola. They sell the absolute best probiotic I have ever used. Works amazing.

  • I am sorry to hear about your sisters problems. I had the same problems and had a brain tumor. It took about 5 years for them to finally diagnose it. Several MRI's and CT scans. Do you have a major teaching hospital in your area. If you do you may want to take her there they have different testing and are more willing to figure out what is going on. That's how my tumor was diagnosed. Good luck I hope they figure things so your sister doesn't have to suffer any longer.
