Red face Slurred speech and perception/balance problems

I'm writing because my doctors keep dismissing my symptoms, but the issues I'm having do concern me.

- Migraines
- Slurred speech / jumbled words (Difficult to complete sentences sometimes without getting tongue tied)
- Things will often appear closer or further than they actually are when walking or driving
- Staring episodes (not long periods of staring)
- Memory (long and short) and concentration problems
- Irritability
- Ears will sometimes feel plugged
- Dizziness
- Sometimes I'll be walking straight and all of a sudden I start veering off to the right
- Fatigue, even after a good rest
- Tingling/Numbness in arms, shoulders, neck, and hands

I don't take medication or drugs, nor do I drink and I do wear accurate vision correction but it doesn't make a difference in my symptoms at all. The strange this is I can't pinpoint any specific environment or situation that triggers these episodes, they just happen.

Any thoughts on what might be going on?

Re: Slurred speech and perception/balance problems

my similar symptoms lead to diagnosis of parkinson's disease after many years of many doctors not taking me seriously. Finally new doctor game me mirapex and it changed my life. I wish doctors could realize that we do not go in to see them unless we really have a concern. Please read about this disease, there are so many symptoms involved with it.
God bless you in your search.
