My daughter is 16 years old. 3 weeks ago she became very lethargic with constant headaches (not severe). Several days later she began to vomit with continual nausea and was fatigued. At first we thought it was gastric, but there was no diarhea - the next day apart from being extremely tired the vomiting/nausea had subsided. That night she experienced numbness and tingling up the right side of her body. It seemed to travel from her leg up her body. When she woke me her right arm was heavy and she could hardly move it. As I spoke to her, she said it was travelling to her face, and her speach became slurred. We went up to the hospital, she had a CT scan and blood tests but nothing showed as irregular. The vomiting and nausea began after this and has been with her ever since. We have since been to the hospital another couple of times to get rehydrated and have more blood tests. She has not been passing any bowel motions and her periods are late (due when these symptoms began). The blood tests have all come back negative, blood pressure is normal, and there is no fever. After the first 1 1/2 weeks the vomiting usually begins with severe headaches between 2am and 4am, this is followed by nausea, fatigue and by mid afternoon she is feeling quite good. Yesterday she did not vomit at all and was feeling well enough to eat and go Christmas shopping (a remarkable improvement), but today she is vomiting and nauseous again. Any ideas??????:confused:
