Thanks Hippi, I'm thinking maybe with these questions I am having with the brain/confusion and other things now with my legs that maybe this bout in the hospital is bringing out some new symptoms. I'm also having alot of muscle twitches. I have been trying to write things down so I don't forget. Things are so bad that I am even practicing talking to my doctor so she understands what I'm trying to say to her. But you know what......I don't want another pill. I want some answers. I love my PCP but after a year and ahalf we aren't getting any closer. Of course it's not her fault that finding a rheumy around here is so hard. and the waiting list are so long.
Anyway I'm gonna go lay down, My insomnia has been so bad that I can't think straight. Well I couldn't anyway but this isn't helping I'm sure. How's your daughter doing?

No bab's I don't even had a neuro because the brain stuff that went from humorous to scarey just started a few weeks ago to the point where I can't ignore it anymore. I have a PCP appt on tuesday and I wish I had one of you with me because no one here understands and I'm afraid I won't be able to get thru to her about what I'm going thru.
Hippi thanks for the mother hen thing. I love ya for it. I'll never be able to eat chicken soup the same way again. I hope your daughter is getting better has her fever gone down any?
Rosie thank you for doing that test for me that was pretty cool. if you figure out anything else please let me know You'd probably make a better doctor for me than most of the ones out here.
love ya gals

Hi Kaal, I'm sorry you have had to deal with that. 9 days how awful! how did you finally get over it? I was told don't worry when you get tired enough you'll sleep. That's all well and good but trying to function in the mean time is too much. I can't even imagine going for 9 days.
Carol, I have to say I thought I was going to lose it! It was so awful, feeling dead tired amd unable to sleep. I went to my pcp who prescribed me ambien, would take it and still would be wide awake in two hours!!! I even thought of double dosing one night, but I thought to myself, "what if I don't wake up in the morning?". I really don't know how I was finally able to sleep again, it just happened. You never know how important sleep is until you don't have it.
How many days has it been for you?
Thank everyone. Thanks Bill for all the info. I was a little concerned about finding out my first cousin has MS. Before that I couldn't find anyone in my family which I though was strange. I was wrong it's actually my mom's sister's daughter. Which sort of follows the pattern of women getting it more than men. I can't get in to see my new rheumy until may 13th. I know it's rediculous. I have an appt with my PCP tomorrow and I'm gonna let her know of the new symptoms and new findings. She's good at listening. Now that I've gotten a little sleep I think I can explain things a little better.
love ya all
