Hi I am a 33 yr old woman. Almost 5 years ago, i was diagnosed with skin cancer. The day after my doctor did my biopsy, i started getting severe headaches, with severe dizzy spells. They took out the skin cancer, and we hoped the headaches and dizziness would stop. it just got worse, they thought it was migraines. In the last 4 and a half years, I have been on over 20 different migraine medicines. Nothing has worked, the medicines work the first week or so, then my body gets used to it, and stops helping. They have done numerous MRIs, CTs, they even done all kinds of tests on my heart, everywhere you can think of. They sent me to a ENT he couldn't figure it out either. Finally my neurologist told me he was done, it's all in my head and told me to go see a physiatrist. Last year, I started falling down, we thought they were seizures, but i didn't pass out. My kids would have to help me up off the floor. I wouldn't be able to move for at least 20 minutes. It's still happening, I have missed a lot of work, my kids have had to take care of things around the house alot. My left hand goes numb, I get severe chest pains. We thought it might be a heart attack the first time it happened, but not that either. I am a medical nightmare, and no one has been able to figure out what it is. I am seeing a physiatrist, I know that's spelled wrong. Sorry! He has me on 800 mg. of Tegretol right now, but that doesn't stop the falling spells, the dizziness the headaches. I also feel like I'm at the bottom of the well. My blood sugar is normal, all my blood tests come back normal, I am overweight. If anybody can help me, Please let me know.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
