Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Since how long are you having this problem with your speech?
Three weeks on and off
When you say your walking is affected, how much is it affected? Can you please elaborate on that?
I can hardlyvwalk at times when do I sometimes collasp and I've notice I'm dragging my feet since Thursday I find just walking hard and painful
Have you been examined for this?
I mean this particular problem that you have developed.
My legs are heavy and I'm shaking with iy
Can you climb stairs?
The doctors her say I have anxiety. and this is all in my head I've never had this before its like I a total different person
Sometimes can alone and when can't I have help
Sometimes I can and have noticed sometime struggle as my arms hurt with this like I have no power in the right side
I personally think that you should be neurologically examined for this and be referred to a neurologist.
I do not know why your doctor dismisses it as anxiety.
I think that you should be examined and neurological causes should be ruled out.
Another possibility is that of myositis.
You will most likely require a careful work up to rule out these causes.
My head drops and get back pain and I feel like a rag doll fees weeks ago I had sharp pain to the head and I couldn't walk since then it has got worese I've been in and out of hospital since July
Have you been seen by a neurologist?
What kind of tests have you had?
My speech worry's me as sometimes I can talk normal then I struggle to getva sentence has the pericarditis maybe done this
Does this happen when you have spoken a lot?
I mean when you continue speaking does your voice go down?
I have only had ECG and echo and checked for blood cot in the lung all blood tests show I just have a viral infection and I've had my blood pressure monitored . my doctor I saw Friday has said she will not repeat echo a& e what to do . and was not worried that when I was a sleep my blood pressure was high I am diabetic 2 as well
Does your voice worsen when you have talked for sometime?
It does go down like I struggle and find hard to speak and try to sting sentence I look lost and spaced out as well
I think that myasthenia gravis should also be considered in your case.
Doctors have ruled out a stroke
this is diagnosed by repetitive nerve stimulation and by doing specific antibody blood test.
All I've been told is all bloody tests are clear just I have a viral infection which showed up in may but only been like this since early july
They must not have done the antibody test for myasthenia gravis
I think that you should request this test from your GP
Plus you should ask him to rule out myasthenia gravis
I'm going back this week as my husband is really worried esp my walking and speech and chest pain
Yes you should go back
Thank you I will
