What started out as fairly minor symptoms ten years ago have become increasingly worse over time. The first time I complained they found a brain tumor. The second time I compained they found cervical cancer. The third time it was another tumor. Then degenerative disc desease.
After six surgeries I still have the same symptoms I started with, only they're not so minor anymore. What started as an overwelming fatigue now feels like a stroke. What started as two fingers shaking is now a total upper body tremor. What started as a little stiffness is now a total freezing of the feet and legs. A little leg cramping is now a full body muscle contraction with alot of pain. It now feels like someone is holding my eyes open while the rest of my face is going south. I have an "indian burn" feeling on my arms and legs and at the same time it feels like I have vice scripts hanging off my fingers and toes. I could go on and on with symtoms like hair loss, moments of confusion, cold hands and feet......
When I tell the doctors about these symptoms they tell me "Well you've been through alot and you have to expect some residual effects." But I feel like this has nothing to do with the other illnesses and needs some treatment. How can I convince my doctors of that? What would I ask them to test for? How can I get them to even look beyond the fact that I've had a brain tumor removed.
