As with most of you, I have a slurry of odd neurological symptoms but no answers. If you wouldn't mind looking over my list of symptoms, I'd certainly appreciate any input that you might have. I have an appointment with a new neurologist in 2 days. I'm pretty jaded about doctors, but I won't get into that right now. Here are my symptoms:
1) Full-body spasms, or myoclonus. This began suddenly a few years ago, lasted for several months, and then subsided. Magnesium supplements were very helpful.
2) Shortness of breath. Also lasted for a few months after initial onset, went away, but I still have problems with it occasionally.
3) Tremor. In right wrist, and occasionally head bobs, too.
4) Difficulty walking. This happened in October, lasted 4 days and then went away.
5) Slurred speech. Only lasted 2-3 days.
6) Tingling in left hand and forearm
In short, I'm concerned about (severe) neurological symptoms that show up for a while, subside, and then come back after months, or even years. I am symptom-free 90% of the time. My experience so far has been that if I'm not exhibiting a particular symptom the exact moment I walk into a neurologist's office, they say "well, you look fine now." or insinuate that I'm making things up. I'm only 22, so I'm concerned about how these relapsing symptoms will affect my future.
Also, any tests you think I should push for?
Thanks so much!
