I guess i'm resorting to being my own doctor since no one else can seem to tell me what' wrong. I have never in my life been this scared, you usally feel ill go to the doctor and they can fix it right? Pretty wrong in my case. I started to have visual problems in January with floaters, extreme sensitivity to light, if i watch tv or the computer images would remain in my field of vision for a few minutes when i turn away. Then along came my joint pain. I would feel stiffness and pain throughout my body.
I saw my GP he sent me for a battery of tests, everything checked out fine. I was sent to an opthamologist and he said everything was fine and to see him in a month, i saw him after a month and i was just terified with the sypmptoms getting worse and he went on to get mad at me and tell me it's all psycho sematic....i was quite upset for him saying that to me. I saw an ENT and the ENT said everything checked out fine ( i thought potentially my sinuses could be the cause of the problem). Then half way through january i ended up in emerg with my lip going numb, i was then told to have a cat scan....and you guessed it, nothing came up. I paid for an MRI and everything came up fine. I'm at my wits end.
I have had nights where i see a bright patterned checkerboard over my ceiling. If i close one eye after a bit it loses focus and i start to get a black haze. My peripheral vision seems to lose focus quickly. The term frightened doesn't even explain what i have been going through. My eyes are just not what they were and i need help. Has anyone gone through this and can anyone shed some light for me....i'm terrified and i just want to be helped.
