Hello, I am 28 years old, up until a few months ago I was a very healthy active person. I started noticing more pain throughout my left side a few months ago, but blew it off so to speak. It continued to get worse over 2 months or so. One night while at work ( I work on an ambulance) I experienced stroke like symptoms and was rushed to a stroke center by my co-workers. I was having severe pressure in the back of my head down into my neck and felt like my head was 1000 lbs. I also developed left arm weakness and had very little strength in it. They ran a bunch of tests and could not find anything. Since then (which has been a few months) I have developed edema of the legs, left side abdominal pain, frequent diarrhea, frequent heat flashes and night sweats, pain throughout the left side of my body, pain on my neck which is sore to the touch at times and travels into my left collar bone. I have been to 4 doctors who cannot give me any type of answers. They just keep sending me to new doctors. I am no longer capable of working per doctors orders, and due to that can feel myself falling into a depression. I don't know where to turn at this point. I have been tested for lyme, lupus, arthritis, MS, thyroid problems, and a pheocrhomocytoma and they were all fine. Any help, whether it be recommendations, or anyone who might be or have gone through similar problems please respond. Thank you!
