It all began 6 years ago when I was 24 years old. I was a caregiver at a home for adults with full blown AIDS in their last stages of life. It was a normal night. A volunteer came over to visit and cooked a chicken casserole for everyone. But by the end of the night I began to have cold sweats (my clothes were soaking from the sweat), I was vomiting and my whole body ached. The next day I had a kidney stone pass along with a migraine and my whole head felt like pins and needles. Day 3 - the pins and needles continued and in addition to the other symptoms I now begun having burning feet along with electrical shooting pains up my legs. My feet were so sore I couldn’t walk for weeks. I went to the emergency room 3 times within the first week of getting ill and all test showed up as normal. I lost a total of 90 pounds within 3 months. I could only eat popsicles and calorie drinks because everything tasted like metal. Since then I have seen over 20 doctors and no one seems to have a clue. 6 years later I still have a pins and needles feeling in the front of my face along with occasional shooting pains, I have developed asthma, gerds, dry eyes/and also sensitive eyes. My old symptoms come back very strong when I get an infection or an illness. I have been told I had Gillian barre syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. I have had 2 spinal taps, 2 MRI’s, cat scans, x rays, lots of blood tests including lupus, thyroid and numerous AIDS tests. My last MRI was a week ago (for MS) and they said I have small white spots on my brain probably from my migraines but no signs of MS. I would off just let this go if I was not still having symptoms. Everyday is painful and I get tired very easily. With 2 small boys and a full time job I have no room for whatever is wrong with me. I have run out of doctors – each one thinks the last one is wrong on the diagnosis. I could really use some help! Thank you!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
