Frustrated

Dec 11, 2014 4:05 PM

My symptoms started in the beginning of 2008 and my symptoms started with numbness (pins and needles) and migraines. I have basically had it all by now...positive L'hermittes sign, the Hug, brisk reflexes, severe pain (muscle, joint everywhere), insomnia (5straight days which led to a grand mal seizure), terrible electric currents throughout and bee stings. I have really good days and horrible weeks. I get Botox shots every 3 months for migraines plus topomax daily. For sleep I take nortryptaline and Ambien every night. Buspirone and Zoloft for Anxiety, as well as Clonopan when needed. Plus some others. I have had cortisone pain shots and nerve blocks. Absolutely nothing has helped me and my primary still does not have a diagnosis. I've seen Rhuematology, Neurology and Pain Management as well. At my last appointment my Doctor felt inflammation and distention around my stomach and ribs. She said something was wrong and thought my spleen was enlarged. I went for an ultrasound and everything looked good so she said see you in 3 months. I just give up!
