First of all, I wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. I've been bouncing around the Healingwell forum for a while now.. started out at the MS one because I had spots on my MRI. Neurologist said "no MS" then I saw Rheumy who thought I had fibromayalgia. So far that dx. seems to make the most sense. Another Dr. who just prescribed vit B12 injections daily and Melatonin for sleep thought I had chronic fatigue.
In the meantime, the neuro orders 3 non-invasive tests. the evoked potential for the eyes and the BAER for the ears and an EEG.
The EEG showed brain waves that indicated an "irritation" and suggested possible seizure activities so now I have to have a 24 hr EEG. I have no idea what this is about. I have had lot's of symptoms that could be from anything... thyroid, MS, Lyme, CFS; Now this? The only thing I can think of is that sometimes I "stare" briefly. I just thought it was all part of my fibrofog. Can symptoms like vertigo, dizziness, be from seizures? I'm confused. Thanks for any input since this is all so new to me!
I am a mother to 4 children; James 7 mo.'s, Davey 2 yrs, Dana 4 yrs, and Anne 9 yrs. I am currently studying to become a natural childbirth educator.... and just trying to figure out where my priorities are right now.
