for about the last three months i have been experiencing neck jerks. they started out kind of easy but now are getting more "violent". it only jerks to my left side no matter which side im laying on,my neck jerks then my left hand jerks then my left foot jerks, and in the beginning i only jerked at night when i would close my eyes to go to sleep, it took a few minutes to get going, but then i would ***k till i went to sleep, now, i can be sitting up in a chair and close my eyes and relax and the jerks start. i have also noticed that my right eye is slightly blurry. i have had migrain headaches all my life, my father and sister both get them too, and my mother died at the age of 39 (which is my age now) of a brain aneurism. sometimes the ***k are so "violent" that i get upset and have an anxiety attack i have had scans done (when i went to hospital for headach) but they show nothing. i am scared i dont know whats wrong with me, its causing me to be very irritable and very moody, sometimes i cry for no reason, if you can help i would greatly appreciate it, a few other things i forgot i have a bad taste in my mouth even after brushing, feet and toes stay very cold to the touch,sometimes they are blueish and most of the time they are numb. i have also been hearing voices and music ( mostly music) after im in bed and everything is turned off ( no close neighbors so i know its me), and i have been forgetting what im talking about right in the middle of a sentence and my bruising has become worse (alot worse) does anybody have any thoughts as to what is wrong with me????

  • do you suffer with migraines that cause you to lose your speech and cause numbness in your face or hands? your neck jerking can be caused by anxiety bacause you are very stressed worrying that the same thing that happened to your mum might happen to you but i also get similar conditions to you ad I have been diagnosed with CADASIL it is a artery disease that can cause strokes, no cure I just have to take 75mg asprin a day and just sit and back and wait to have a stroke! crap isnt it. Migraines that run in families that cause loss of speech and numbness are a sign of cadasil espesially if there has been anyone in your family who has had a stroke. I hope you are ok.

It sounds like adverse reactions to foods and/or chemicals.Any cravings? What's your favorite food?
