hi! i am a 30 year old female and was healthy up until last year. my symptoms started out as a really weird migraine. my left pupil will dilate and stay that way until the pain in my head goes away. i have been diagnosed with a typical atypical migraine. tested for ms 4 times and have had numerous ct scans as well as mri's. aside from the migraines i also experience numbing/tingling sensations in my arms and legs. predominately worse on my right side. lower abdominal pain, on right side too. my joints ache constantly and i have been diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome. i feel tired all the time and have trouble concentrating some times. oh, and i was also diagnosed with heel spurs and have had constant problems with uteris and ovaries. family history includes cmt, hypothyroid, and heart disease. i am going crazy with all that's going wrong in my body and wish to be pointed in a direction that makes sense. so far all the testing that has been done all come back normal. i don't know what else to do.

  • What kind of problem with your ovaries and uterus? With your abdomenal pain .... do you have a bowel motion at least daily? Do you get constipation or diarrhea? With the tiredness you get... -how are you sleeping?? have you got insomina or hypersomina (eg sleeping abnormal kind of amounts)?- If you are sleeping okay.. are you waking up feeling tired still?- does exercise make your symptoms better, worst or do they stay the same?
