Hi everyone. I'm a 26 year old female. I started to get treated back in April after getting severe pains in my wrists, fatigue, and a general sense of unwell. Since that time, I've just gotten worse and worse. I'm tired all the time, have trouble talking at times, get very woozy and cotton-headed, and often get very disoriented and confused. I also have a lot of stiffness and muscular pain. When I am brushing my daughters hair, my biceps hurt after just a minute or so. Sometimes I'll sit for a few minutes and get up and it takes me a few steps before I can straighten up. I sort of waddle at first and can't stand up all the way straight. I get a lot of sharp pains up my legs and arms and around my wrists. Boy, is this a cruddy feeling!
I've gotten two positive diagnosis - Reynaud's phenomenon and an mri revealed a stroke somewhere in the right side of my brain. We think the stroke was a low grade and probably back in April since that is when everything started. I was a perfectly healthy girl before then!
After finding the stroke, my doctor took me off of all medications. I had the corroded artery test and an echo to try to find out why I had a stroke. Both came back clean.
Things I've been tested for and have been told I do not have - thyroid disorders, lupus, rheumatic disorders, b-12 deficiency, arthritis. I had a full mri so I'm sure that if I had anything else that would show in my brain, they should have mentioned it, right?
Anyway, any suggestions work. I've been to my practitioner as well as doctors in orthopedics, neurology, and cardiology.
