I'm lost every time I turn around something new is going on and I don't know what is due to this illness and what may be due to some other reason. I had not seen a Dr in over 40 years I just was always healthy until 2015 when I was at work, I was a diesel mechanic when I was hit by a boom on the tow truck my boss and I were hooking up to a diesel truck cab I was hit in front just above my eyebrow on the left side knocking my head back, the boom then came back hitting me at the base of my skull on the right side.
Not long after that my symptoms began I couldn't hold tools I was using at work I would drop them and sometimes my arms would jerk so fast they would go flying. I started having problems with my memory, sometimes forgetting even how to do my job or even where I was and why I was there. I also started having mood swings making it impossible to do the job I had done for over 25 years.
Desperate for answers
When my wife finally talked me into seeing a Dr I had already started to have so many more symptoms. That Dr thought I had T.B.I. but he sent me to another Dr who thought it was early-onset Parkinson's
. Then on the day I was particularly bad I had Dystonia and was choking with every drink and bite I took I went to the E.R. where they did an M.R.I. That's when they said M.S. at that time I didn't know what to think but I went to the neurologist but I was not working now and couldn't afford my appointments so I only went once she too said M.S. that was 2 years ago I got on SSID
but had to wait so long before Medicare which begins next month, but now I have a full list of new symptoms and there are no more periods of symptoms-no symptoms every day is a struggle and I need to find a new Dr and answers my question is how do you suggest I proceed and I would love your feedback. Please I'm desperate!
Symptoms now are uncomfortable muscle movements, arms, and legs movement even when I finally (out of pure exhaustion) fall asleep. I pace several hours because my muscles won't let me stop, my memory is even worse at times, I've lost sight in my left eye
, I still have boughs of dystonia when my movements DO ease up, along with my memory problems I have mood swings, I have sexual issues where sometimes it hurts to be touched along with other issues, it all gets worse if I get heated (even when it's cool to everyone else, I have breathing issues (that is a new one) ... There are other problems it seems like there's something new weekly or even daily. Like I said I would appreciate your feedback and any help possible thank you.
