When doctors can't figure out what the problem is...does that mean its something big and scary and hasn't manifested yet or when they can't figure it out does that mean its nothing that big, just a little something throwing everything else off. Maybe not enough testing????????
I cant take this anymore....i just wanna give up. I dont' feel good! It seems neurological but I've had an mri that came back normal. They found a small hole in my heart (pfo) that one doctor is saying is causing my vision problems (aura) but no other doctors go for it. Please help me...Im ready to give up. I can't take this....it all came out of nowhere...what did i do wrong, was it something I ate...something I did...why me
If this is just a vent, well, then, I'm really sorry you're feeling so awful and down, and I wish there was something I could do to make it better...but there isn't. Just know that we've all felt crummy like this. I hope you feel better soon.
If you want something more, then here's this: When doctors can't figure out what the problem is, that should not to be taken to mean that either "it's something big and scary", or "that it's nothing that's big and scary". It only means this: There is not enough evidence...yet...to give "it" a name, or a treatment plan.
Tests are coming back negative for neurological problems, so maybe it's not neurological. You say that "no other doctors go for (the hole in your heart causing vision problems)". Have you seen more than one cardiologist? Was it a cardiologist that said you had the hole in your heart, and that it was causing vision problems? You might go back to the doctor who told you that you had that hole, and that it was causing vision problems, and ask him this: "OK, so I have a hole in my heart and it's causing vision problems; what do I need to do about this, so they will go away, and the hole in my heart will be repaired?"
Other possibilities: The problem is metabolic...diabetes, thyroid problems, something like that. You'd need to be seeing a rheumatologist. The link I've provide you has a whole host of diseases that "look like" (mimic) MS...you might spend some time reading up on all of those and see if there is anything that sounds familiar.
But basically, if I were you, and I'd seen a doctor who told me I had a hole in my heart, and that was causing vision problems, I'd be camping out on his doorstep until he told me more about my condition, it's risks, its treatments, what outcomes I could expect, etc.
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....
