Hello there!!
I am looking for some suggestions or help in anyway.
I am 23yrs old and for the past 3yrs now every winter I have these strange "funny do's" as I call them.
To cut a very long story short from November to March (the coldest time of the year)I have:
blurred vision
pressure in the face and head
I feel completely drained
can sometimes affect my speach, walking being able to do things I am capable to do ie spell, think rationally, to think at all sometimes!!!
At its mildest it's as if I've been on a wild drinking session the night before, but without feeling sick, or that feeling when you just wake up, you know your heads all over the place you can't manage anything untill you've had a brew and some toast... But then it lasts all day??? I will have this feeling alone for 5months now and will not be able to shake it, at it's worst I will get the above symptoms.
The thing is I have no pain whatsoever, bright lights and sound can irritate me but only when it's at its worst. I have had CT scan and an MRI which have come back ok.
I've had my blood tested for diabetes, thyroid, kidney you name it and I think I've been tested for it more than once.
I am being tried on drugs for migraine and the next step is epilepsy as they say my symptoms are covered by both (I have never had a fit).
I am looking for help and suggestions if anyone else can shed some light or that has gone through this themselves. Every winter I am having lots of time off work. I can't go out I can't go to the gym I can't do anything.
Short of moving somewhere with a warmer climate I'm a little stuck!!
Please please can you help me
