sometimes legs get weak and feels like i'm going to faint when i walk
pinky and ring finger on right hand are numb
head twitching
eye shifting back and forth when trying to focus (only occasionally)
tense on back of head and temples
hard to stay asleep, wake up every 2-3 hours during the night
Blood work- normal
Ears, nose and throat doctor- said everything was normal
Had x-ray on chest- no fluid in lungs

The ears nose and throat doctor referred me to a neurologist but i'm still waiting for my appointment, i'm pretty nervous thinking that this may have to do with a brain tumor or cancer, the doctor has no idea what it may be he said there are soo many possibilities, if anyone has gone through this please help and give advice, it would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

  • These are/can be symptoms of Celiac disease. Have your PCP get you referred to a gastroenterologist. Once there, get a full celiac disease blood panel taken; EVEN IF it comes back negative, push HARD for them to still do an endoscopy and biopsy. 20% of people who eventually are found to have celiac disease had negative blood work but a positive biopsy. Do some additional looking at celiac disease and compile as many symptoms as you can that are also "on the celiac disease symptom list." That way, you'll have some ammo to use with the specialist.Good luck!

  • The dizziness has stopped, but still having trouble sleeping and stinging short pains on top of head on left side, and some on back of head more on the right side. When I bend down or kneel down theres a lot of pressure on my right temple. But the lack of sleep is a problem, and the short pains that I have been feeling in my head, lasts about a second.

  • I have new symptoms, although the dizziness has stopped I still have head twitching and a very tense feeling on the back of my head. When I lay down it feels like my head body and legs are having jitters or a jumpy feeling. Also when I walk my legs feel pretty weak and like they r jittery.
