Dizzyness when i move around. Tremors mostly legs and arms which worsen the more i do - have to use crutches when out and cannot go shopping by myself as looking around makes me very dizzy. have extreme light sensitivity get lots of migraines. have CFS , IBS, and degeneration of the spine C2-C5. have started citalopram 20mg recently and take migraleve for migrains frequently.
no - not been offered anything like that
have had MRI of neck and brain. no blood test or nerve conduction studies as neurologist at hosp was not interested and couldn't wait to get rid of me. Have mri reports saved of my desk top - am on my laptop in my bedroom at mo as where i spend most of my time due to neckpain when i stand up for too long. will send them to you but will take a while.
Thank you very much. i have been treated for b12 def a few years ago by inj - have not been checked for levels since then. it's such a relief for someone of your stature to confirm that not enough investigation was done before diagnosis decided. have recently been refused Personal Independent Payment as am not disabled enough to qualify and still unable to get any further help from my doctor. can i take your advice to my doctor's and ask for a second opinion?
Yes you can certainly take my advice and request your doctor to evaluate you further before they label you with a functional movement disorder. I am glad that I was able to help you out. Whenever you have more questions please start a new thread with "For Dr. Shahzad Only". Kind regards
