Ok I've had this really bad medical problem relating to my spine for about a year that seems to be getting progressily worse over time and in these past few weeks i feel like i life is threatened and that i don't have much time to live.
I am currently seeing an internationally known neurologist dr. vernon neppe but waiting 2 weeks inbetween for my 2nd appointment will not do as I will myself dying.
I know if my doctor hasn't been able to figure it out nobody on this board can so I just want to ask where I can go to recieve help for something like this.
my symptoms and problems stem from my spine i feel. I feel My spine is not attached to the muscle on the left side of my back i feel and since the brain is so coneected with the spine it's causing my severe neurological problems like extreme confusion, weakness, vision so blurry its like the vision frodo has in lord of the rings when he puts the ring on and everything is blurry around him. i feel my body is so confused because my spine is not properly wokring that it it is forgetting bassic body functions such as eating which i have not done in 2 days and sometimes i forget how to breath and start suffocating. im too confused right this second to explain my symtoms better then this its just my hands are shaking so uncontroble and i cant see the screen very well.
I used to be really smart and artuculate im sorry this is hard to read but really right at this moment i can barely comrehend what i am typing sorry for it being hard to read. Im only 17 and im so terrifed of dying which i feel like will happen any day now with my symtoms. Ive been to the ER 4 times and since they cant see me dying visibley they make me wait for 4 hours then give me some pain pills (i also have extreme constant mind numbing pain in all my body coming from my spine) so the ER i don't think can help me and i can't wait for the doctor.
I guess what im asking is what do i do? im willing to talk to my parents and fly anywhere int he country if there is some kind of center for confusing medical problems i could stay and and maybe get 24 hr monitering to help come up with a diagnosis. i simpley cant wait any longer for doctor appoitments and doctor tests i need to do something Im asking you guys for advice.
again im so sorry for this message being terribly writen and maybe not making much since but as i said my brain is simpley not working and maybe if im still ok i can edit this post to better explain what im ttrying to say.
sorry this doesnt make sense and is in the wrong forum maybe? im just really scared of dying im too young i want to do more stuff
