Similar symptoms?

About to go through a journey to figure out what is wrong with me and thought I would get as much info as possible before I start because I feel this is going to be a long haul.

For about a year I've been having a series of things going on. It started by feeling drunk. I couldn't focus. Bright lights made me anxious. My right eyelid was a bit droopy. I decided to go to the er because my family was concerned I was not acting right. Had a ct scan with contrast and came out fine. Was told everything else was fine.

I then progressed to having these "headaches". It was short bursts of incredible stabbing pain. Mostly on the right side of my head toward the top. They knock me down when they start and then go away pretty quickly usually. I had trouble finding the right words for things. There were times I would get confused or just stop because I couldn't figure out the words to say. I would slur words at times or get them jumbled. I started getting tremors...one time I couldn't even hold my plate to eat my lunch. My mood changes frequently and I often find myself staring off into space. Physically I feel like there is pressure in my head...like it's full

I've also had petechia on my earlobe which I found odd and at any given time I have at least one big bruise on my body of unknown origin.

I had recently become short of breath at rest. I work in an er and put my finger on the pulse ox to only find out my heart rate was 150 and my blood pressure was through the roof. My coworkers forced me to check in and I had chest ct and a pe study because my ddimer was elevated and my pulse was not changing. They focused on either a blood clot or a heart problem and did a lot to rule both out. Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't mention the neurological problems going on and I'm curious to find out if they are connected.

I'm not looking for someone to tell me ayup that right there is a tumor but I'm curious to see if anyone has a similar story to me...I guess I just have a feeling about this.

Re: Similar symptoms?

I don't have answers for you but I can relate somewhat. Mine started three months ago with a ringing in my right ear and high blood pressure followed by dizziness. I was put on BP meds but dizziness has persisted. The BP has gone down. I also feel drunk and light headed. I'm waiting to see ENT specialist and possible MRI. My doctor seem lost doesn't know what the problem is. If you feel it is neurological , please follow it up with the doctor
