My "illness" started about 16 mnths ago. I woke up one morning after feeling fine the day before and I felt totally stoned. I felt like I was on a bouncy castle and felt really ill. Over the next few days I got worse, stomach cramps, loss of balance, nausea, left leg numb from the knee down and was just disoriented. i was sent to hospital, had mri of whole spine, ct scan etc and everything was fine. Was hospitalised again a month later, checked for ms, brain tumour etc. 16 months on I am awaiting more tests and still don't have a diagnosis. I was told it was a viral infection which would go away eventually. I do feel much better as the "stoned" feeling went away about a year ago but my balance is pretty bad some days and can be embarassing as I feel people might think I've been drinking. I suffer from fatigue, a bad weakness which seems to start in my voice(my voice range seems to have changed also). I'm still losing weight and my right eye turns out when tired and I get painful left hand and leg. Do any of these symptoms mean anything to anyone? I also went to have stomach cramps checked recently and I had helicobater pylori in my stomach which doesn't seem to be connected to anything else. That has been treated.
