I went to the hospital Oct 9 because the doctor thought I was having TIA. All tests came back normal. I have had MRI with and without contrast, CAT, EKG, EEG, complete blood work, xrays. I feel like I have had every possible test but I am still having problems with no answers.
I took a hit on the head back in May 2008. Soon after I began having problems excessive daytime sleepiness. I started seeing a doctor for this around a month before the spell on October 9.
I dont know the technical terms for my symptoms so I am going to tell you what happened in laymens terms. My vision started messing up. Everything was wavy. Then I started having blind spots. I got dizzy and weak in the knees. I went and sat down because I felt so sleepy. I just wanted to fall asleep. I started shaking really bad. Not sure if tremors but more like muscle jerks. My tongue went numb then my nose, fingers and toes. Couldnt talk. I never went unconscious and understood things that were being said to me but couldnt make myself respond. I stayed in this condition for 8 hours. I still remained unable to function for several days after episode but the tremors were not as bad. They only come and go. I did sleep however the entire time. For over a week I was sleeping appox 20 hours a day.
I still get the tremors when I am tired. My head stays foggy all the time. I have no energy and am sensitive to light, noise, and touch. Does this sound like a migraine or am I just going crazy? I keep a light pressure headache most of the time but nothing close to the worst headache of my life. What do you think? I am seeing a neurologist.
