I am 37 years old and generally healthy (up until now). I have been working on a cruise ship for 11 years now and 2 months ago I felt dizzyness and nausia on a couple of occasions. Being on a ship I would have ignored both symptoms, explaining them with seasickness, but both times this was occampanied with trembling, paleness and the feeling that I will pass out. I attributed this to the stressful work and lack of sleep, however I reached home a month ago and had a lot of rest for 2 weeks. In stead of feling better, I felt worse. The dizzyness deteriorated, I lost appetite and lost weight too (6 kg). My balance was affected, but in a way, where the world around me is still, but my body feels like moving (neck, weist, knees even ancles). I am from Bulgaria and I checked in a Neurological hospital a week ago, where they did MRI on my brain and neck, as well as some tests related to the vestibular apparatus. The MRI did not show anything serious, except for some disc protrusions- C4, C5, which according to the Doctors was not serious enough to cause my condition. I was given medication for the vestibular syndrom (this is what they diagnosed me with) but I do not feel any better. The truth is that I have been on medication only a week, but I have been asked to walk every day at least 4-5 km, to train my legs, which frankly I don't even feel any more. I am ok when sitting or in horisontal position, but once walking, I do not feel gravity and feel very insecure. My legs are tense and I have difficulty walking. I feel my legs rubbary, but recently I feel the same with my arms and hands. I feel weak and and discoordinated. Now I have pain in my joints when walking or at times a lot of tension, which makes it harder to walk. What scares me is that I barely feel my legs, even though I manage to walk and keep balance. My jaw is tense and I have difficulty even chewing and all my reflexes are slowing down. I drop things and have trouble even signing my name- my fingers are weak and lack precision. When I wake up in the morning, I am all tense and I put a lot of effort to do anything. I have a bit of numbness in my fingers and sewaty palms and feet. Needless to say I panic at times, as I haven't felt this way ever and I am worried I will never get out of this condition.
Someone, please advise me, are these symptoms all related to the vestibular syndrom, or I need to see yet another doctor for the walking pain in the joints and the lack of precision in my movements. Any advise will be greatly appreciated...
Thank you kindly and God bless...
