My neice who is 33 years old is going through an aweful situation that seems to have no diagnosis so far. Three years ago she crumbled to the floor when the muscles in her feet gave way under her. She had uncontrollable eye and lip movements and could hardly remember anything, along with a deadly headache. Getting off the bed was impossible for her. When her mom and I got her off the bed she had to go down to the floor on hands and knees, like a puppy. She was admitted to a hospital in Georgia, nothing solid came from their testing, except, the back of her brain had aged to the level of an 80 year old person. After many months of agony she slowly return to her normal life.

On October 4, 2012 in Florida, on the job as a teacher the same thing happened again, she tells me she felt a pain starting from one ear across the forehead moving to the other ear, sweating, the feeling of wanting to vomit and a massive headache, involuntary eye movements and weakness in her legs.

Hospital did a scan, first, we were told it was a brain lesion, then a hole in the brain that could have been there since birth, also, the back of the brain have aged to that of an 80 year old person. Next they did an MRI which they say showed nothing is wrong and therefore my neice could go home, which is where she currently is wondering about her faith and if a diagnosis will ever be found. Any suggestions as to where we could turn and what test we may need to have done. Thanks
