I have not been officially diagnosed…that apparently won’t happen until Feb when I go back to the neurologist. I had neuro psychological testing Monday, and can see where I’m just not as sharp as I once was. The neuro is trying to rule out Parkinson-ism and Alzheimer’s.
I quit my job back in August (legal secretary), partly because of the leg weakness, the cogfog, the stuttering, the pain in my hands, not to mention the stachybotrus I had been exposed to for over a year, oddly when a lot of my troubles started. MRI shows white matter disease, the need to rule out MS even though the ‘lesions’ are not typical of MS. (which I still don’t understand)
I have horrid charley horses at night or when I get cold, constant cold hands and feet, foot drag, back cramps, vision problems, hearing problems, the fatigue just kicks my butt, constant bathroom stops…etc….etc….etc.
I have been diagnosed with chronic migraines with aura & status migranious. I am gluten intolerant, but it’s not celiac’s, chocolate, dairy, nuts, cooking oils intolerant.
I am 50 yrs old and I’m am in such a quandary as to whether I should try to find other work, NOT mold infested!, or if I should get my SSDI application started. Some days are good, some days aren’t.
One of the downfalls is, to get a good paying job, I would have to travel a major interstate each way, I have vision issues as it is, along with night blindness, the eye doctor strongly suggested I not drive at night at all.
Does any have any suggestions or if your situation is similar, what did you do?
