I really wish I knew what was going on these days. It seems that I have been getting these strange and weird symptoms. I am dizzy (I think everyone here knows this) feeling like I am trapped within my body, confused thinking, trouble thinking, blurry vision, my face is going numb, I have pain in my neck (feels like I am being stabbed) which radiates into my jaw, shoulders, arms. I have mood swings, one minute I am fine then the next I am upset about something, I am sweating- it just pours off of me. My legs burn, and then there is the numbness. I am also having pain when I urinate.
At times it feels like my blood sugar is low although it isn't. I have no clue as t o what is going on, and neither do my doctors. Things have been getting worse day by day. It almost feels as if moving my head is making this worse. when things do get bad as they have been my pain meds seem to exacerbate these problems so I don't take my usual amount, which then brings on more pain. If I push on my neck with my fingers the pain, numbness and these symptoms get worse.
Even though I am in pain I do exercise about an hour a day. At one point I thought this was due to diabetes but I never seem to have high glucose levels. I do have some issues however with a failed glucose tolerance test and when I eat high carbohydrate foods I get very sleepy.
I know that no one here can solve this but at least I can vent and let everyone know what is occurring with me. I am fearful that I am in trouble and will remain like this for the rest of my life. I am concerned that I will end up paralyzed. This really could not have happened at a worse time. I am enrolled in the university and the last thing I want to do is quit or take time off. I am determined to do this but if this continues I may not have a choice .
I have a pain clinc appointment with the Nurse Practitioner on the 5th and then my PCP on the 7th but I have been trying to get them to listen to me for months about how I have been feeling. They don't seem to care or listen and here I am getting worse. I have run out of ideas and do not know what to do.
Well thats it, thanks for reading this and I am sorry it was so long.
