I am a 28 single mother of 3. I have alot of neurological sypmtoms and doctors who keep telling my I am just crazy. I have constant and severe pain through out my back, legs and now into my hands. I have had epeliptic-like episodes in the past. When I was a teenager I was tested and they only found 1 "spike" in my EEG therefore my doctor said I carried the genetics for it, but wasnt epeliptic. So here I am.
About a year ago I was being seen by a neurologist whom did a MRI and a Ctscan. The ct scan showed a buldging disk in my lower back and the MRI showed a small tumor/cyst in my head. I was also given another EEG and it showed I have "slowing in the speech centers". All of this information in front of her, she decided that it was all in my head and that I was perfectly healthy. Despite having to be half carried into her office.
I can no longer chase after my kids. I can barely walk. I have become totally dependant on my husband for everything. I cant go on like this.
Also I have recently become pregnant. I feel this baby has set off a bomb in my body. On top of the chronic back pain and numbness in my legs, I am now getting pain in my arms and hands. My joins have started to lock up randomly. And every time I lay down my heart starts pounding in my chest like a caged animal.
If there is anyone out there who can help, please. I am scared, confused, and rather depressed.

  • Ok so new and scarier things have been going on. I have started having moments of confusion and blackouts. Yesterday I walked face first into a wall because I blanked out at the wrong moment. I am doing what I can to hide all of this from my children. However I am failing. I have also been trying to find a neurologist in my area. However my medical insurance doesnt cover specialist visits. I cant work. So I am completely lost as to what to do. Should I go to the ER? If so what questions do I ask? I am seriously scared and confused. Anyone ever heard of this stuff before?
