Arthritis of the Brain or Primary AutoImmune Cerebellitis or
I have joined this post to get some answers in regards to my Mom. My mom has had RA for a while even though she is only 56. She had her knee replaced in ___ and has not had RA symptoms since. However, since April she has been going through some severe physical issues such as: she is seeing double which makes her dizzy, she has lost her balance and therefore cannot walk well, she gets headaches and cannot turn her head. The effects of this have almost been debilitating for her. We have been to Neurologists, ear nose and throat doctors, general practicioners, etc - she has taken so many tests yet they all come back saying normal. They have ruled out a stroke, MS, cancer, tumors, etc. The last time we went they told us that this is something like arthritis of the brain. Can anybody give us any advice/insight/steps to what you have done/referrals anything? We are trying to get to the Mayo clinic b/c they are supposed to be good with this type of thing...
