I"m a 29 year old female who has been without diagnosis for almost 4 years now. I have problems with my balance and have seen so many doctors and specialists to see what is causing these symptoms. It was ruled out that I had MS, it was ruled out that it was an inner ear problem, it was ruled out that it was viral. I have had 4 mri's , 1 ct scan, evoke studies, eng's, abr's, and the list goes on and on. Each test comes back negetive or inconclusive. I do have a low thyroid however my family doctor never pointed out that these symptoms may be caused by hypothyroidism.
I've lost my independance and can't go anywhere without someone. I use a cane to keep me up and the symptoms have not gone away at all. I have even been sent to a psychiatrist because they thought it was in my head. HOwever the psychiatrist said I had a bit of situational anxiety but that he doubted I was psychosematic. Now I'm awaiting a sleep study since I have insomnia.
None of the doctors take me seriously anymore and I'm very frustrated that no one can tell me whats causing this.
Any information from anyone out there would truly help me if only it was to say " HI i know exactly how you feel." Sincerely Angeleyes....
