Hello to all,
I am new to this site. I am a member of BrainTalk and have posted there, but to no avail. Hopefully some people here can help, since my problems are neuro related.
It all started after I had a complete hysterectomy in 2003. My body just seemed to go in a complete frenzy. I know they say that after a hysterectomy it takes a while for you to recover. But this was different.
I had always had frequent migraines as a teenager, but since 2003 those migraines became more frequent and then I began having daily headaches. My body became completely fatigued. I mean I began sleeping 15-20hrs daily. This was way after my surgery recovery time. Up to a year after. I started having floaters in my right eye and I would get a pain above the right eye that would just kill me. My head would go numb, my left side would go numb. I would get tingles in my fingers and toes on both side of my body. My body would sting...like bee stings. It hurts to were clothes some time. It hurts to take a shower. The water beating on me hurts. Temperature is very confusing. Sometimes cold hurts, sometimes hot hurts. So lukewarm is usually were I keep it. Then in 2005, I started having seizures. My father has a history of seizures. His started when he was 36. However, he had a brain injury at the age of 18, so they assumed it was from that. Now they are second thinking that because of where the seizures are coming from. He is having approximately up to 20 seizures a night at times. He is scheduled for 4 brain surgeries starting Feb. 14. My first seizure was when I was 31. Could there be a connection? I think so. I think genetics play a big part. But my neuro won't listen. BTW, this is my third neuro, the other two say that my seizures are NES, they feel that they are pyschosomatic.
I have been dx with Depression, CFS, Fibromyalgia, RLS, PLMD, NES, Migraines, Lordosis, Congenital Spondylolisthesis, Chronic Sinusitis.
All MRI's and CT's have been normal other than ones done for sinusitis. They state that my frontal and maxillary sinuses are full and I need sinus surgery. I had sinus surgery done in 2000, but only for the maxillary sinus' so the ENT feels that it is necessary that I do both frontal and maxillary now. (ouch)
I know this is a lot to read and take on. I guess my questions are...has any one experienced any of these symptoms? Does anyone of any suggestions one what I should present to my neuro? Could my migraines be causing the seizures? Do you think my seizures are ES or NES? Giving your opinion, ideas and suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance...
