ill start with a bit of my med back ground as all seems to have come within the past 14 months.
in july i started to smell amonia/dirty fish tank water had confussion loss of memory ect went to doc, brain scan later, nothing, i was given a questionaire asking basicly if i was depressed....im not. i didnt go back. i now have flashes of light when my eyes are closed usually when trying to go to sleep but no smells, im thinking this is migraines? i do get bad headaches which make me slur my words and make it unbareable to move is this a migraine?, i dont feel pain with the lights or smells!
in november i had a really bad cold that i couldnt shake off it lasted through to around the middle of dec, on new years eve i fainted while making a coffee, i went hot then cold then shakey then as soon as i thought i need to sit down i went, i banged my head on a tiled floor.
in jan i started with an ear ache on jan 4th i woke up with a droopy mouth on my right side it progressed in a few hours to the whole side of my face being paralised (bells palsey) doc said it was the cold that caused it to happen, i recovered fully by second week in feb but have felt very tired and weak all the time. at the begining of april my stomach and lower body swelled up i could not fit into my clothes i gained 6lbs my lower abdomen was hard and i was waking in the night to go to the toilet i had pain in the lower right side of my abdomen and it also was across the pubic line, this lasted a month and disapeared as quick as it came. however i still get pain in lower right abdomen on and off this travels across my hip bone and into my groin, i have pain in my knees/legs like growing pains (sometimes keeps me awake or wakes me up at night, like having legs put through a mangle) and have started to get tiny blood spots over my legs arms and hands, also have started to have iregular periods im usually like clockwork. i dont want to go to the doctor because of the questionaire thing it made me feel like they thought i was making it up or something.
