I'm a 29 year old woman, I feel healthy most of the time. Over the past couple months I have not felt quite right in a lot of ways. My fatigue has been worse (though I chalked it up to nightshift). My headaches, which I have a history of, have been somewhat more frequent and more intense. Two weeks ago I had a migraine so bad I could barely move. It was not entirely gone for more than a day. I was throwing up but there wasn't exactly nausea that went with it except a few moments before I would get sick. Last week I was on vacation by myself and I had a seizure. I was still mostly consious. I got really weak and thought I was about to faint so I got on the floor but then every muscle in my body tightened and began jerking. I thought my teeth would shatter because I couldn't unclench my jaw. It lasted only a minute or two. When I thought it had passed I got up, suddenly very very thirsty. I made it to my hotel bathroom and thats the last thing I remember before I woke up facedown on the floor (my face broke the fall and my tooth split the inside of my lip in the process). I had absolutely no idea where I was, was completely deaf, and had lost control of my bowels. I was not able to move for several minutes. Sound began coming back but it was jumbled and became deafening. It took a while to differentiate the sounds of the water still running, the bathroom vent, etc. I was so tired I couldn't do anything afterward but sleep after I got myself together. Mentally I have not felt like myself; I am guessing my reactions to everything. I have been having brief dizzy spells and mild but frequent headaches. I can't focus on anything (less than usual, ha).
The problem, aside from whatever is going on, is that I have a history of depression since I was 13. While that's obviously a common issue, I am flabbergasted how frequently doctors do not take me seriously when they see that on my chart. Everything is blamed on it. I could walk into an ER disemboweled and trailing my intestines behind me and I will be dismissed with a Celexa refill. I pay out of pocket for doctors because I cannot afford insurance, so I do not go unless I am in extreme pain, terrified, or the problem obviouslty becomes something I cannot ignore any longer. I am afraid I am going to go to my doctor who I've only seen a few times and will be blown off. Has anyone ever experienced or heard of these symptoms together?
