I am newly registered and am awaiting for my first post to be placed by the moderator. I was going to put this in my original new post but wasn’t able to work out how to edit my first post lol.
When I was admitted to the Neuro ward for my symptoms, the surgeon asked me all sorts of questions, did the physical test etc. One question which stood out was “How did alcohol affect me”? I explained that I drink the same drink, and normaly I have 3-4 glassses of wine on Friday with a takeaway with my husband at home as a treat. Interstingingly I have had a few terrible reactions on some occasions when ive drank the exact same amount of wine? This is what happened this Friday: Had 4 glasses of white wine with dinner that evening a few hours later I felt strange and gpt brain fog, I drank some water and thought it would pass, and decided I’d got to bed, excpet I didn’t make it, within minutes everything went black with stars in front of my eyes, I coudn’t see and couldn’t get up, then vertigo kicked it, I vomited several times, had no balance what so ever and everything was still black. it took about 2 hours for this episode to pass, then I was back to normal. This has happened about 8 times in the 18months that ive been ill. Normal reation would be heavy tiredness and more wobbly and off balance than usual, nothing like I had Friday. Has anyone else encountered this type of reaction as a symptom? I do have many other symptoms, ill add my other post below, as this may help I hope…thanks again to all who reads or replies.
MY OTHER POST:
Hi all, I am a new on here and need some advice please.
In brief, 20 years ago I was DX with M.E. I am now 39 and for a long time haven’t really suffered with M.E. However in 2011 I became terribly ill with a whole list of symptoms. My first was cognitive impairment, disorientation, balance issues, heat and light intolerances. Following this was referred for c.t scan of brain marked as normal. I then started having non epileptic seizures, terrible right leg ataxia that took 8 weeks to correct it self, stumbling, brain fog, numbness badly in feet n arms, electric shocks in face, and rigid jaw, pins n needles, , headaches, spasms and pain in limbs, eye ache and heavy eyes, but eye test is normal. At which point I was sent to a neuro center for full test as they suspected mad cow disease. L.p, blood’s, nerve test, ecg, eeg, chest,x ray, MRI of brain n spine were performed. High signal intensity was shown on brain MRI but marked as normal. I was discharged. I was bed ridden and chronic for several months, but now I am up and about and a little improved, when ever I get a bit better, I relapse again. I have had thorough testing all so far normal. My last MRI was a year ago and I am due to have one in October. Has anyone experience this? I was seen by an M.E, Dr, he said I do not not have M.E and was missed diagnosed, I failed the Romberg test and was seen by his collegue (clinical Psychologist) both agreed I did not fit the criteria for M.E, they said it was Neurological and defo not psychogenic. The neuro said I don’t have M.S, and until a test becomes positive they’ll do nothing, so apart from my g.p requesting the MRI next month, we have no where to go, the neuros are not interested and suggested it was psychogenic to my horror! I was gob smacked. Last week I got blood results back, I have now been prescribed Vitimin D3 for 12 months due to low levels, and my white cell count is raised and the bloods need repeating. The cell count is likely to be because of throat infection 5 days before my bloods were taken. However, I do not understand why I am low in vit D, I go in the sun and eat lots of fish and never had this until now. Can anyone relate or advise, I am so sick of being consistently I’ll. I can’t drive or work any more either, I am being bounced back wards and forwards, been ill for 18mnths now and still have no answers …thanks for reading my post and to ever replies xx
