Symptoms list any ideas:

Hi for the past 9 months i have been getting the following symptoms:
swallowing problems: lump in throat/ears pop and ache.
sinus headache/nasal stuffiness: dry no catarh as if inflammed
neck ache
tingling in hands.
headaches, tension and pulsing plus *****ly sharp stab between eyes, pain behind eyes, burning in temples.
vision problems: floaters, negative images, seeing stars, black blotches
Insomnia: cant get to sleep, feel dizzy, wake up with headaches.
fatigue due to lack of sleep probably.

i am seeing neurologist next month...at the moment quack has given amitryptaline low dose for sleep which i think helps a bit.

any ideas

thanks people.

K

Re: Symptoms list any ideas:

make sure he does and MRI to rule out disorders like MS or Chiari Malformation (which I have) alot of disorders have similar symptoms like lyme disease, prenacious anemia, and even a thyroid problem can lead to it. So see what the dr says before you start worrying some of these are as simple as a tablet or a monthly injection to get back to feeling great, while others are a tad more complex but then again a tad more rare

Re: Symptoms list any ideas:

hhmmm where to start, numbnees in fingers and wierd feelign down right side, headaches/miagraines, troubles swallowing, nystgmus, loss of depth percetption periodically, extrme fatigue, acheness, extreme pain in my rgith arm, loss of right leg and arm coordination and strength, loss of memory, pain in back of head, drop attacks, vomiting and constant nausa, insomnia, when I do get to sleep sleepign liek the dead and trouble waking, breathe problems, missing heart beats, partial periodic paralysis, hearing problems, hiccuping (like insane painful high pitched ones lastign for 10mins) dizzyness, vertigo, ringing in ear, ecessive thirst, extreme itchiness and sweating, intolerance to bright light or loud distrubing noise, skin problems, unequal pupils, problem focasing on text......

I think, except for the ones concerning the bladder, bowels, and sexual organs and stuff I have most other symptoms....even the stupid one liek loosing lots of eyelashes?!

But then again my MRI used adjectives liek severe chiari and extensive syrinxs running form C2-T10, C3-down has a huge central syrinx.

I spent a day recouperating after packing car, driving, shopping and comming home, I coudl hardly stand all day and just felt sick!
