hi, i just joined and have no idea what i am doing so please be gentle with me
i read a little about
other posts here and can relate. i have just had 'another cat scan' which told my gp that i have a bulge in my c5 c6 disc (, plus alot of other long words)
basically, i woke up 6 months ago with my left leg and arm not working, plus i couldn't speak correctly nor swallow, disorientated too. sent to hospital and they admitted me with stroke, then tia, then of course they found out i had bipolar so i was made to feel like an idiot and sent home (others with mental illness will know what im talking about
) it took ages before i could talk or walk better.
anyhoo, i have been in heaps of pain since. sent to a neurologist which did heaps of tests including mri etc and diagnosed me with hemiplegic migraine, which is fine but this migraine has gone on for 6 months daily. again, another doctor who judged me on bipolar and treated me like an idiot and that was that.
today, i am a mess, my left side is in such pain i cry off and on. mood swings like you wouldnt believe, ongoing chronic pain with no pain relief. my whole left side is killing me, starting to become incontinent and unable to walk properly. sent a letter to neuro but no reply. frustrated to the hilt. taking sleeping tablets to just ease the pain (knock me out)
just don't know what more i can do, spent all my money on these doctors that when they have no idea send me away. grrr.
sorry, im in a bad mood, pain too much
has anyone else experienced stroke like symptoms with the neck disc bulge?
