I've been dealing with these strange symptoms for a long time, and they just seem to get worse! These symptoms are kind of hard to explain, but here goes.
Main frustrating symptom- It feels as if my spinal fluid isn't working the way it should (i know it sounds weird, but it's hard to explain the feeling of this.) I feel like there is this weird film that goes from my brain all the way down my back that is constantly crackling. It feels like all the fluid along my spinal cord is dry and crusted over. When i move my back or head I feel this awful dry crackling sensation that sometimes makes me feel really woozy when it cracks. I don't experience any pain except in my upper chest upper back area. My head feels very woozy. When i walk everything moves. Also i experience a lot of spontaeous joint cracking without me even moving. It's as if my brain is sending a signal for that to happen. I feel generally ill all the time be it naseous, tired, dizzy, weak, woozy. I've had blood tests done and everything is fine. I haven't been to a neurologist yet. I'm just not sure where to go at this point. Any answers would be helpful. Thanks!!!!

  • male, female? Age? What blood tests have you had done? What are the numbers? Are they very close to the upper part of the normal range or very close to the lowest of the normal range? Are they just a bit outside normal range? Joan

  • 26 female. I had general blood tests, and everything was in the mid part of the normal range. I also had blood tests for autoimmune diseases and everything was also in the mid part of the normal range.
