I am now 21 and over the last month and a half have taken a severe turn towards the worst. All throughout my life I have had spells off and on in which I describe where I feel like I am on the outside looking in. i can hear and respond to people, but my mental processing is decresed severely. 3/17 of this year I went in to see my general practicioner because these spells were increasing in occurances. He has me wear a holter monitor for two days, sent me for a MRI, and referred me to a nuerologist. All results were normal. The neurologist ordered B12 deficiency labs and an EEG due to the below listed new symptoms. The EEG was normal and my B12 came back at 242 (normal 180-900) my homocystiene level was 11 and we are still awaiting on the MMA to come back from Mayo. If my MMA is not elevated my physician has already advised me that he was going to diagnose me with anxieties. I am already on Paxil. I am confident these symptoms ARE NOT anxiety related. I just made the mistake of crying in my doctors office when I could no longer walk a straight line (no balance). Tears of course = anxiety to doctors I am starting to believe.
episodes of decreased mental processing
tingling and numbness in hands, arms, and feet
tired (sleepinng 18 hours a day)
loss of balance
HELP! Anyone that has similar symptoms or recommendations---let me know!!!!
