Since Feb 06 I have not been able to feel my face. It's a cold numb feeling as if you just left the dentist office after getting some work done. With this I have also had vision loss. After about 5-10 minutes of working out, I go completely blind. I can't even see colors or light. At the same time doctors have noticed that I have cysts growing thoughout my body (my spleen is covered in them and they are thoughout my GI track), I am always sleepy, but can't sleep well, I'm weak, muscle aches, both diarrhea and constipation (as if my body doesn't know what to do), nausea, headaches, and the list goes on. I have had 2 spinal taps, 5 MRI's, 5 Catscans (both with and without contrast, and Radio Active scans as well), EEM, EEG, X-rays, and TONS of blood work done. Not one doctor, neurologist, rheumalogist, GI, endocrinologist or anyone else been able to figure out what is going on with me. I have been in the Military for 7 1/2 years now. This just started almost a year ago. I am scared and the doctors basically gave up. Any help would be great!
