this is about my husband. In a nutshell - 40yr in perfect health compalins of upper stomach pain below breastbone, I carry him to Er - they have no idea and admit him BP high (has always been normal in past) 150's/100's. Has gallbladder sonar (normal) ekg 's (normal) upper gi (has hiatal hernia - has had it since 15 and on meds for it and doing fine and found he wasnt digesting food fast enough?!?) sent him on with that diagnosis on same day, by that night compained of muscle soreness and by next day sore all over boday and could not taste anything (could hardly walk/dress/drive/could not work) said his skin was sore to touch like a bad sunburn..........symptoms got somewhat better over a few weeks time but his main problems now that have persisted is pain in hands and feet (can hardly walk) and still no taste.
Went to nerologist and has had extensive blood work (everything normal except low b12) - emg showed mild peroneal (sp?) neuropathy on left side and jolly test was positive for decrimental response
then had MG panel blood test done and it has come back negative. (i just knew he probably had mythanis gravis)
scheduled for MRI in the morning
blood pressure still high (like above)
meds he is on:
nexium 40mg a day
coreg (bpressure med) 10mg a day
b12 1000mcg a day
Lyrica CV 150mg twice a day
If the neurologist cant figure it out then what do we do? no one seems to know what it could be and he is in so much pain mostly from his feet because well he HAS to walk? WE've never dealt with anything like this before.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
