Someone PLEASE help me!
First of all I am 17 yrs old and back on christmas I had appendicits and then I had walking pneumonia. My headaches I have had for about 2 years now and for the past 6 months they've gotten worse. I am really tired (sleepy) etc and I have no appetite pretty much all the time now. My head hurts at the back at my head (where your head connects to your skull and all along that line) and also back after my surgery on xmas and about 3 weeks ago I guess you could say I had a seizure? I don't know what it was? All I remember was I blacked out...like my vision and then the next thing I completely remember is that I couldn't see, move or talk and I was SO tired and my head hurt and I was dizzy. does ANYONE have any idea what this might be or what might have been going on? Also...I have had this bump in the middle of my ribs like where your solar plexus is except more towards my left side and it use to just be a small ball and now it is more like a swelling...anyone have any ideas? I also get these ransom times when my arms just go numb! Another thing, Several times I get a horrible headache and stomachache, I vomit and then I feel better, I am constantly pale and am very fatigued...any thoughts would really help...please help me!

  • Have your doctors rule out a fungal infection called blastomycosis. They say it doesnt ususally go to the brain. It stays in the lungs usually, However my 21 year old daughter had a lot of the same symptoms that you are having, she started out with bad headaches that were taken care of with meds. After she had her daughter they found a tumor in the lower left part of her brain near the stem, when it was removed it was found to be be a blastomycotic fungal mass. After they removed it , She still had headaches, and the neoroligist said they were migraines, not the blastomycosis because they didnt find any big mass with a MRI . On August 27, 2007 the doctors declared my daughter brain dead with no hope and I had to remove my daughter from life support . PLEASE have them rule this out. I never even heard of this fungis until this happened

  • See a neurologist for the one problem and and internist for the other. You need some immediate medical attention.
