Hi, i am 19 year old female. I have been experiencing problems for
the last 6 months. It all started one evening after i was out in a
hail storm, i went inside and was freezing cold and really dizzy and
passed out. I have passed out twice in the last few months. I am
dizzy constantly but have these "episodes" probably twice a week, where
i am severly dizzy(to the point of falling/not being able to walk)
headache, most recently neck pain, tingling/shooting pain in my hands,
feet and back. As well as numbess, i get extremley cold and start to
lose feeling in my hands, they start to turn kinda purple. I also have
really bad shaking in my right arm (tremor) and i get really confused.
I also get blurry vision and my eyes twitch. I have been seeing a
neurologist, i had a brain mri as well as an eeg that were normal
(except for a small cyst somewhere that i was told was unrelated). MY
doctor said i had an inner ear problem for the last 6 months, now he
said he thinks its depression. I don't believe i'm depressed, i was
fine before this all started, everyone around me says i'm one of the
most upbeat people they know. So i'm thinking maybe get a second
opinion, this doctor seems a little unorganized as well, he didn't
even have the full mri report when i had went in a month after to see
him. I am currently on medication, i have been on lyrica for about 3
months, 75 mg 3 times a day. And now i am on metanx, doctor said from
bloodwork that my b12 level was a low normal, at 286. I was just
wondering if any of you have any advice as far as a possible problem,
if i should get a second opinion, is there a way you can go about
finding a good doctor? My insurance is not too good, so i already owe
thousands of dollars so i would rather not have to go through the same
thing again and have no answers still. I just want to feel better.
Also when this problem happens i get extremley tired/fatigued. Thanks
