My wife has been experiencing a tinging sensation in her face. Then she had an unresponsive incident that caused me to tke her to the emergency room. :( She had been having the tingling in her face and a twiching eye lid that was bothering her for about three weeks. Then one night I took her out to eat on the way home she stopped moving as if she were asleep. I asked her if she was ok but no response. I then asked her if she could smile but no response. Then I asked her to squeeze my fingers as we were holding hands. However there was no response except for a very low uhg. So I figured I would give her a little time and continued to drive home. When I arrived at the house I said her name and, "we're home do you want to go in side?" Finally she said in an extremly low voice, "I can try". However she made no attempt to even try to get out of the pickup. So then I made the decision to take her to emergency. While we were at the hospital the ran a battery of tests including, a ct scan, chest x-ray, blood test, and urine test. The only thing that they found was a mild UTI and said that this was the problem. :mad: They put her on an antibiotic and sent her on her way telling her to make sure to do a follow uo with her neurologist which she had already made an appointment because of the tingleing and eye twiching. After seeing the neurologist he odered up tests that included, a ultrasound of the carorid artere, sleep study, eeg and an extended eeg which lasted for a day and a half. So far the only thing that has been found was a mild form of hypopnia. However the doctor said the oxigen deficiet is not severe enough to warrant having a c-pac machine.:confused: She is continuing to have probalems. However she is not going unresponsive just really dissy and weak at random times during the day. It may be because she has been put on topamax 100mg twice daily, provigil 200mg, clonazepam .5 mg (when the tingleing starts) which is about twice daily, relpax 40mg only when having a migrane (her migranes have almost gone away since being bumped up to 100mg twice daily on the topamax), and a dietary supplement called migravent. However the eeg tests have came back normal. All this and the doctors are still befuddled and so are we. She had an mri of the brain 6 months ago but is having a problem getting the insurance company to authorize another one so soon. Back when the mri was done the doctor was testing for mutiple serosis. However that test came back normal at that time also. Has anyone else experienced the same issues with beating up against a wall tring to get a diagnosis and the same symtoms? If so have you gotten a diagnosis... help...!!!:eek:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
