it feels like something is wrong but why can't anyone figure it out?

I am going back to my doctor's tomorrow and was hoping for a little help.

I have had an MRI of my head and other one of my neck. Both came back fine. Everyone is telling me I am fine but I don't feel fine. My doc thinks it is depression, but I will tell you I am not depressed. I am a happy person except for not knowing what is wrong with me.

Here it is:

Numbness off and on in face, head, hand, feet
tiggling in arms and legs and feet
shocks go through my body from time to time
I sleep 12 hours a night and want to sleep more
dizziness
close call fainting spells, with tummy upset
shakes
can't remember things

This isn't all of it but gives you an idea. How do i get my doc to refer me to a specilist and not just a neuro?

Re: it feels like something is wrong but why can't anyone figure it out?

living,

You seem specific enough about your symptoms that you should be able to look them up prior to your doctor's visit and come up with some possibilities for diagnoses. I usually tell people not to try to figure out their diagnosis before they go to the doctor, but in your case, you've already been and s/he hasn't been particularly helpful.

Try using sets of symptoms in a google search and see if you come up with possibilities -- such as dizziness, tingling and poor memory... then look further into anything it turns up and see if you have even more symptoms. By the way, I just did that search and it turned up fibromyalgia -- so maybe you want to check out more about fibromyalgia.

See if you can come up with 2-3 possibilities, then take those to your doctor and ask him/her to help you DISprove those, instead of proving something else.

Good luck! Let us know how you make out....

see a neurologist, they specialize in the symptoms you talk of

Please check out the Thyroid Board: those are typical symptoms.
