Confused... Anyone have any input?

Hi everyone. I’m really confused and worried about what is wrong with me and I’m not sure who to talk to.

I thought I was dying

A couple of weeks ago I had a pain in my right side under my ribs. I took a pain killer and went to bed. I woke at 12am and felt as though I was dying. I was so convinced I was I wrote my kids and husband letters. I was extremely weak all over, white as a ghost, hot and cold, feeling sick and my body was starting to go numb.

All my tests came back normal and clear

The next morning I ended up at the ER because we had no clue what was happening. I could hardly stand/walk because I was so weak. They did bloods, an ultrasound of my tummy and urine sample. Everything came back normal apart from my white cells up a little. I had a CT scan back in June which came back clear.

My symptoms

Since I was at the hospital I have gotten no better. My symptoms are:

  • Blurry vision (I had an eye test and they couldn’t see anything wrong)

  • Headache

  • Numb body (I can’t even feel hot or cold)

  • Upset tummy - can’t eat or drink (I force myself)

  • Feeling sick, especially after eating/drinking

  • My legs feel extremely weak

  • Feeling off balance

  • Not sleeping as normal

  • Can’t taste or smell normally

  • Feeling very spaced out

  • Can’t feel when I need to wee or poop as normal

I'm at a loss

Something has changed. I mentioned MS to my GP and she said it wouldn’t be that, I also asked for an MRI and she said I had a CT scan in June so I don’t need an MRI. So I’m at a loss of what the heck is going on with me. Something isn’t right. I just want to get back to my normal happy self and enjoy my kids again and be the best mum I can be. Does anyone have any input? 🙁

  1. Hi BeccaJane,
    I am so sorry that you're going through all of this, and want to thank you for reaching out here!

    You mentioned your gp and having had a ct scan back in June, so you don't need an mri. Is she following up with these symptoms in any way? Maybe recommending you to a neurologist??

    While we can't give you any medical advice for your own safety, I would sure pursue this until you have all of your questions answered to YOUR satisfaction! Don't be shy about pushing this need answers.

    Please keep us posted on this and let us know how your doing! We'll be thinking of you...Janus
