I've been sick for 7 months now and the doc's still havent managed to find a diagnosis so I thought i'd try posting here to see if anyone has any ideas to what it could be.

I work as a builder, and have been in fairly good shape and health, usually never get sick, got no problems with working etc.

It all started 7 months ago when severe headache and dizziness. Ive been troubled with sinus infections so I thought that was happening again. But it just kept getting worse. After a short time I started to get other symptoms like tingling in my legs and arms , shooting pains in my right arm, face numbing and seeing white spots on my eye sight. I was sent to a ear/nose/throat specialist to check for sinus infections but after a good check with CT/MR's etc. nothing was found.

But my headaches etc. was not getting any better. I was then sent to a neurologist , who got me put in the hospital in fear of nervous system infection / brain tumor etc. I had another MR taken of my brain and head , and a spinal tap, and a bunch of blood tests etc. All tests came out fine and there was no sign of anything being wrong. I was discharged from the hospital with the diagnosis of stress and being overworked andgiven some pills (Nozinan and ibux/paracetamol) to go on for 2-3 weeks. At the end of that I was actually getting better and had a few days with no symptoms.

So I went back to work , the evening after work I got intense headaches again and my neck starting radiating severe pain (3-4 months ago) So it was back to the doctor and took some more blood tests etc. which all came out fine. Was then sent for physio therapy (massage for stiff neck and pains) Did that for 2 months or so every 2nd / 3rd day. To no effect. Was then sent for another MR scan of my neck and lower back , which came back perfectly fine. Took some more blood tests , infections , hormones , blood sugar etc. everything came back fine.

So after 7 months I still have no diagnosis and im suffering from intense headaches (comes and goes , sometimes get a few hours rest and then it comes back) neck aches pretty much all the time , sometimes get a rest then it starts again. Dizziness comes randomly , comes pretty often if I have to work hard or focus hard like driving / shopping etc. Sometimes get a strange out of the body / heavy drugged feeling. And im getting tingling feeling in my whole body when I go to bed and lately the right side of my face has been getting numb. Also neckache/headache get worse when I excersise , pretty much bed struck for a few hours after that.

So if anyone has any idea on what diagnosis I could have that would be great, because the docs and neurologists are running out of ideas...

Took some more tests for MS , auto immune disease etc. a few days ago so waiting for answer on that , and waiting in line for special physio therapy sessions.
