I am a 33 year old confused female and here are my symptoms:
* Double vision with drooping left eyelid (This started all the mess)
*Fatigue...I always feel like I get run down. Even when I've been resting. I figured out it got really bad when it was HOT outside or sudden weather change. I love when I wake up and it is cold outside (Below 65 degrees), my body seems to come alive! Too bad I live in South Texas...lol.
*Slight tremors in both hands. My right hand gets worse when I am hot. Only realized this after tracking my symptoms in a planner. My arms and hands have always gone numb and had tingling, so I don't know if that is related to all this.
*My handwriting would change as I worked. Sometimes I can't even sign my name in cursive right.
*I felt like I just couldn't think straight. Like all of a sudden I couldn't focus.
*I sometimes have speech problems. I can't seem to pronounce my words right or just say the wrong word entirely. So frustrating.
* I used to think I was just clumsy, but I would fall at least once per week. Now sometimes I can't walk straight and bump into people. On the hot days, I feel like I'm drunk.
*My arms sometimes get so weak that even lifting a fork seems like I'm lifting a weight.
* I have IBS symptoms as well (or at least think so). Horrible...
*Starting to have hearing loss and ringing in my ears (This could just be from all the rock concerts I attended when I was in HS and college.)
*I don't know if I get depressed or just plain mad. My mom says my moods are unpredictable right now. I'm just tired.
*Prob..more symptoms I'm forgetting at the moment...lol.
I got an MRI due to my double vision before going to my neurologist. I wasn't injected with anything. I was just told I have sinusitus by my doctor. I never even saw the scans. I also got a stress test which came out normal. I did full blood work and I only needed to take in more calcium. I saw a neurologist and gave him my symptoms. He said they sounded "autoimmune"? Sent me for tests for Myasthenia Gravis...negative. Now he said to just track my symptoms for 2 or 3 months to see what happens. I'm def not an expert, but I think I need to ask for another MRI. Any Ideas???
