I first started feeling these symptoms back in August but they would come and go, and now its pretty much constant. I feel extremly disorented, like if you have a high fever along with bouts of confusion, slurred speech, trouble finding words. These other symptoms seem to get much worse with exurtion. I was put on disability on dec 4 for testing, complete mri of the brain, vng test at a ent doc, tilt table test and stress echo test done by a cardio doc and now im seeing a nuroligist who has done an eeg and all my tests have come back normal. Next is the spinal tap. I have been back to work for three weeks because my doc cant find anything wrong and I have been missing about two or three days a week because I just feel horrible and cant handle anything. I feel kind of like im drunk or in a fog and disconected. In the mri they did find mild tonsilar ectopia of a few millimetters but said that it is unrelated and dosent match my symptoms. Cardio doc said I have high blood pressure 145\105 and put me on pills. I am feeling completly hopeless and dont want to live the rest of my life like this, what do I do?
