Since December 2013 I've been having headaches, body twitches and tremors, nausea, motion sickness, debilitating fatigue with no relief from sleep, my head feels like it's "swimming" and my body feels like it's humming. I have fibromyalgia but this isn't like anything I've experienced with that. I have 0 memory right now and, in fact, I can't remember anything that I've just read or watched. Sometimes when I'm watching TV and a commercial comes on, I can't remember what show I was watching. I have limited recall and few long term memories. I have a hard time finding words when I'm trying to speak - it's like my brain momentarily shuts down. Typing is difficult - sometimes I misspell words, or type a totally different word other than what I intended. The twitching was happening infrequently, now it's happening every day and when I'm sleeping. The twitches have now started in my face and I have dystonia in my hands, feet, and neck. I've had 2 stays in the hospital, numerous blood tests, CT scans, MRI's, video EEG's, and everything comes back normal. I'm also seeing a psychiatrist to help reduce my anti-depressant but that hasn't helped. I'm on Armor Thyroid medication for hypoactive thyroid and that's been reduced by my endocrinologist because of an elevated TSH level, which is typical on this medication, but no results with that yet. I've been having milder versions of these symptoms for years, but one at a time. Frequent headaches (sometimes everyday for a month or more with no relief) started about 26 years ago, twitching in my right leg about 15 years ago (I went to a neurologist who told me to "just stop doing that"), unexplained nausea, disorientation, "swimming" head feeling for the last 2 years. Now I'm getting everything at once and I think, whatever this is, I've had it for a very long time, but now, for some reason, it's all happening at the same time. I've trying to stay positive since I think a good attitude goes a long way to help, but I'm also getting frustrated. My doctors don't really listen and one even told me that I "looked too good" to be sick. Everyone keeps telling me that I'm stressed, but I don't feel stressed, even with this craziness, as things are good right now in every other way. I will probably start talking to my psychiatrist about that at my next visit. My next step is to see another neurologist who's familiar with movement disorders. I'm hoping this helps. If not, I'm not sure where to look next. Any ideas or advice is appreciated. Thanks!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
