I am hopelessly looking for an answer. I am 26 years old with 2 children. I have been experiencing multiplying symptoms for 10+ years. At 12 years old, I started getting daily headaches and even migraines. Along with this is diarrhea. These continue to this day. About 6-7 years ago, I started experiencing confusion with the migraines, speaking words that make no sense. It is truly scary! My newest symptom is vertigo. I have had 3 bouts of it in the past year. In between these episodes, I am having extreme dizziness to the point of nearly fainting. I do have multiple other symptoms including occasional numbess in extremities, visual disturbances, speech problems, confusion, and other odd complaints. The headaches are debilitating and I feel like no one understands. I have had an abnormal MRI showing small spots on many areas of my brain as well as an abnormal ENG signifying that my vertigo is a "central" problem and not an inner ear problem. M.S, seizures, low blood pressure, chronic daily headache syndrome, and IBD are some of the diseases that have been tossed around between the specialists I have been seeing. No one can seem to give me an answer and I don't want to keep "trying" new medications only for them to fail. Any suggestions would be great. This is all very depressing and terrifying. Please help!!!
