I have a 21 year young 1st year law student daughter. She was reading books at age 4, tested off the charts in 2nd grade and placed in the talented and gifted schools. She started taking college classes at 15 because she was bored in the summer but wasn't old enough to have a job in TX and her entire senior year was AP courses with extra curricular classes on top of that...ok, I have a point and not bragging even though I am very proud and biased. About 2 years and some months ago, my daughter started showing multiple symptoms that appeared to be what we called "growing pains". Dizziness, ringing in the ears and some migraines. We thought it would pass. Then she started having more problems with her vision where she seemed to have a problem keeping her eyes focused without even having a headache at all. She described it as the words moving side to side on the page and her eyes could not keep up. Then she added to the symptoms with blurred vision..now her eyesight is already at like a -675 in both eyes from at about 10 yrs old. She had numerous doctors, blood work, x-rays, cat scans, eye exams, special eye exams, MRIs, Brain MRI for blood vessels. All normal. About a year ago, she is a passenger in the front seat of a car that is t-boned by an SUV and has major injuries. We find out then on top of the injuries that she has a 30% scoliosis S shaped curve...I thought she walked sideways because it was the "girly" thing to do because she doesn't really complain about this stuff. So more time has gone by, now she is having even more symptoms where it feels like pressure in her head but without pain. On the top right side and smack dab in the middle back of head in addition to periods of black outs where she is in class listening to the lectures or taking notes and then next thing she remembers, it is a completely different subject and she is confused. All of her previous symptoms are continually getting worse and my daughter who had not problem with concentration, reading, comprehension, A's is now struggling to even finish 1 reading assignment or class. I need advise? Any test that has not been ran that I have not listed? The latest 2 changes (pressure in head and blackouts have only been happening for the past 2 weeks). She has been flying back and forth from NY to TX once a month for the past 6 months and is scheduled back here again for at least 1 more time. I would like some appointments scheduled if I know which way to go since I am limited on time she will be available. I have even asked her to take a year off of school so we can try to get this resolved. Why should she? They haven't helped her yet. Really sorry it is so long but I think all of this need to be there. If nothing else, it makes for a great bed time story for those who get bored.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
