Please I cannot find any help! I have been to the doctors and to the specialists. They say I have a disease, but they do not know which one. So for the last 8 years, I have been worrying what is wrong with me.

These are my symptoms:

- I have had 6 CAT Scans - all showing my brain is shrinking more and more each time.

- jerking of arms and legs
-numbness in toes up to knee's and in fingers up to elbow's.
-tremors in hands, arms, and legs
-loss of balance (this has gotten much worse over the past 8 years)
-loss of hair
-significant problems with bladder
- loss for words. (especially when talking)
- shaking
-loss of feeling in arms and legs - dropping items
- sleeping has increased ( I sleep on average 15 or more hours a day)
- clumsy
-I am hard of hearing, but over the past year - I am hearing what someone is saying - but it is like I cannot make out the words. Like I never heard them before.
-headaches every day
-having trouble pronoucing words
- At the same time when all this happened I was diagnosed with being bipolared. (mental illness), Although the doctor that saw me believes that I am not a typical case - since I never had a history before this of mental history.

Please if you have any suggestions - I would appreciate it. Something I could check out on my own. I just want to end this rollar coaster ride.

Please help.

Thank you,
