Hello all.

I really could use some help please. I will get right to the symptoms and if you have any ideas as to what this could be I would very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

1. Smelling fire and within seconds my head went numb like pins and needles then 30 minutes later (roughly) same thing only numbness went to my chin from my head both times only lasted seconds. Followed by a very bad headache. (The doctor told me he thinks I am having mini sezuires I believe this is also known as jacksonian sezuires) I had an MRI done but it came back fine.

2. Conatant headaches (wake up with them all day go to sleep with them) (some times worse than other days sometimes mild)

3. As of today my doctor told me I have blepharospasm (where the eye twitches) I also get floaters in my eyes all the time very annoying!!

4. Eye blindness (right eye) only one time for about a minute or so

5. Strange tastes in my mouth (you can laugh it's disgusting) haha but umm... Tastes the way poop smells EWWW I know!!!! lol

4. Sharp EXTREMELY PAINFUL stabbing pains (only lasts like 5-20 seconds) behind my ears or the middle of my crown

5. Concentration difficulty/forgetfulness

6. Sometimes difficulty swallowing

7. Not thirsty (can go for hours without feeling the need to have water or something to drink but more thirsty at night time

8. Heart palpitations (I think thats what they are called when the heart beats so fast) it makes me feel like I can't catch my breath

9. Chest pains (which my doctor today told me he thinks its actually my lungs not the heart) so I have a test coming up for that.

10. Only my left nipple turns extremely purple (it can't be the bra because otherwise my other nipple would turn purple

11. Joint pain (knees, back, hands, wrists)

12. Vision problems (blurred, double, strange as this sounds its like it gets worse then gets better for being able to see at distances)

13. My head sometimes tingles but it only lasts for a maybe 10 seconds then goes away

WOW... I feel like a hypocondriac reading this all back :(... This all started about a year and a half ago after I had my daughter.

Well... Anyone else have anything similar?

Thanks so much!!

  • Are you on any benzo's or anti anxiety medicine or have you been on any the past 3 years? Even for 4 day's? DWhat medicine have you been on past 3 years? I was on xanax an it caused all the symptoms that you are describing to me. NO doctor's helped me, they hurt me more by giving me more and different kinds of other medicine when it was the medicine in the first place causing all these problems.Hello all.

  • Thank you to everyone who replied I truly appreciate that! Well, I did think about MS it was the closest diagnosis I could find to almost all of my symtoms. Am I allowed to walk into a doctors office and tell them "Look, I think I might have MS... Can I be tested for it?" or well, I should say what ever I conclude is wrong with me... I have never walked in a doctors office and asked them to test me I just tell them whats wrong and let them make the diagnosis.

MS, Lyme, or Fibromyalgia.. possibly some infection. I have had 31 vials of blood drawn - clean - ANA's, Scleroderma, I mean.. you name it.. even Diabetes.. All clean; thank GOD! =) i have had 2 MRI's of my brain (high contrast w/ dye) - nothing, I have had an MRI of my neck; nothing.. and an ultrasound of my thyroid - 2 nodules.... (too small to biopsy; and endocrin says they are not a problem).Seen my doctor today; and he gave me an on the spot EKG (was fine) and a chest xray; and I will be going for a echo cardiogram and abdominal ultrasound on the 18thKeep me in the loop on what you find out; you can look up my symptoms by searching Athenaa21 if you want to compare or look at the tests I had done.
