Dealing with this for 2 years now...
Hello. Any help and I would be eternally greatful.
I'm new here, but not new to what I have been dealing with daily now for over 2 years.
I'll start with how it started. In August of 2008 I went to Yosemite. Everything was great. Life was perfect. I went rock climbing, fishing, hunting, I had no sicknesses of any kind outside of the occasional headache.
A day back from Yosemite, I am out with my friends seeing the movie Funny People. Midway through the film, I got a headache like no other. The worst headache I have ever had before in my life. I left midway through the movie and my girlfriend drove me home. I got a shower laid down, took two Tylenol and went to bed. I awoke to a nightmare. The next morning when I awoke I had a weird sort of lightheaded feeling. It was a spaciness feeling that I wasn't all the way here. Like I was kinda still dreaming. That was only the beginning...........I went to work, came home and the symptoms were still there. Super bad lightheaded. Then I had a super bad panic attack, I couldn't breathe and was rushed to the emergency room. I was stuttering, slurring words, dizzy, twitching, just out of it. They diagnosed me with panic attack, gave me a CT Scan and sent me home.
Next day, my symptoms became chronic, and has been chronic to this day...
These are the symptoms I wake up with and deal with on a daily basis some worse then others...
Dizziness. (all day)
Lightheadedness. (all day)
Poor concentration(all day)
Spasms in head
Spasms in arms and legs
Slurring of words(all day)
Clogged Ears(all day)
Note. I experience each symptom every day not all day, but at times. I noted the ones that are all day.
Up until recently headaches haven't been an issue, they just started to give me issues as I have been dealing with them on a more regular basis. Very tight pains on the top of my ears, and behind my head.
Well I don't really have one....I have seen...
I have had 3 MRI's. 2 CT Scan. Ct of Temporal Lobes. Xray of sinuses. All Negative. 1 MRI with contrast negative.
Numerous blood tests with fasting.
Doctors have all told me....STRESS. I am not stressed. I've never been stressed. BUT, I went along with it. I have taken...Valium, Zanax, Lexapro, Zoloft, and Prozac all in heavy doses for 4-5 months at a time different times. No results. I actually felt worse.
Right now, I am currently taking Topamex for headaches which doesn't work, and Valium once every two weeks.
Any help would be great!
I am at a loss here.
