Hi, I am Missy and I am new to the site.

I went on FMLA in June of this year due to high blood pressure and daily migraines. I worked as much as I could but then more symtoms stated;

body aches and joint pain,

tired all the time,

a drunken gait to my walk at times,

my speech has been effected as well there are times I can not think of the word for an object.

I also have slurred speach at times,

vision problems: blurred adn double vision and total loss of vision 1 time.

Passing out and memory problems.

And now my blood pressure is going to low as well as too hig

I think that covers it but I may have left something out.

I have been to a number of local doctors in my area, my doctor now has ran all kinds of tests and he can not figure it out. He has diagnoised me with severe migraines, high and low blood pressure, fibromyalgia and lupus. I am on medication for all of these things and still have all the symthoms.

I have an appointment at The Mayo Clinic in Florida on Nov 8th and I pray they figure this out.

My Dad believes it has something to do with his exposure to ageny oranage in Vietnam before I was concieved.

I am now unemployed due to my health, I do not drive because I am scared my vision will mess up or I could pass out.

My doctor is totally stumped and he has been managing my pain until the Mayo appointment.sysmthoms like mine

Does anyone have symthoms like mine? If so do you know what is wrong with me?

I am new here and posted this in the wrong place at first, I hope this is the right place to post this question.

  • Using wrongdiagnosis symptom checker and using the symptoms aches, joint pain, blurred vision and slurred speech led to one possibility of Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome that you may want to research. See this link and compare your symptoms to the ones listed http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/i/idiopathic_hypereosinophilic_syndrome/symptoms.htm Good Luck!
