Long story short...I went to the ER yesterday. My family doc (haven't seen a neurologist yet, as this headache and sensation are new) and my chiropractor told me to go. A brief about the chiro (used a tool on my neck and adjusted me once...thought this might be the reason for my headaches). The ER said they didn't think it was anything serious (suspected a verterbal arterial dissection) and they did an x-ray of my neck...showed no misalignment. They noted that my neck (the left side) was spasming and really tight and the muscle was larger on the left side than the right. Don't know why this is.
My doc also ran a thyroid test on thursday...TSH was .94, T3 and T4 were .662 and .60 respectively. Not sure if this a concern or not, but the doc will be comparing these results with my previous blood work (I had postpartum thyroiditis-hyperthyroid stage and lost A LOT of weight..now I am starting to gain, even though I am not eating much).
In a nut shell, what I am experiencing is paresthesia...weird feeling in my scalp, dizziness, headaches, loss of appetite, general feeling of being drugged up....concentration is just not all there. All this comes and goes. I woke up feeling this way this morning.
I am scheduled to have a total colectomy to have my colon removed on March 18th...have colonic inertia.
Trying to think of some other things to note, but not coming up with anything except that my diet is not the greatest...still take a vitamin everyday though.
3 weeks ago I was in the ER with intestinal spasms and they took blood...noted that my lymphocytes were slightly elevated, everything else was normal.
Any ideas what this could be? My headaches are not constant...and I have only had one migraine in my entire life (I am 26).
I am trying not to stress about this, but I can't help it...I am not feeling like myself!
