here goes. I was born with what my parents were told was juvinile rhematoid arthritis and would be a cripple by my teen years. I'm 47 and I'm still not cripples. I was diagnosed with seronegativespondlarthropothy (whew!) of my spine a few years back as well. I have had a diagnosis of lupis twice, ms once and fibromyalgia with acute chronic fatique at least twice, however it keeps getting thrown out as I don't pass the point test. I have the symptoms of Ménière's disease, though my bouts of vetigo tend to last for weeks at a time. I also have a problem with my brain, in that it 'buzzes'. I don't know how else to discribe it. You know when you stand up to fast and everything goes bright and electric? that's how my brain feels- it feels like what you see then. I have chronic headaches, hypothyroidism, my body hords water, and I have occasions where parts of me don't work- my hands wont hold anything, or my ankle won't work, etc. I have tingling extremities on a regular basis, and sometimes it 'hurts' it is so intense, and will wake me from sleep. I suffer from insomnia, neuralgia, memory loss, hearing loss, inability to control my movements during a brain buzzing episode (they put me on nerontin for that- yuk!!) and bouts where I don't wake up for days. I have tested ANA positive a few times, but then I don't. I have had one MRI a few years back, but no mylin sheath damage. when I go for a walk, my ankles will stop working- my foot just kinda hangs there and hurts like a #*@&$"]#*@&$. My hands hurt, I get weird stuff like lymes disease, bells palsy, menegitis. There is more, but there is only so much room here! (lol) please, someone help!!!!!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
