i am a newbie here, looking for someone with similar experiences that could offer advice/information please??
i was admitted to hospital on March 1st after a suspected stroke… I lost vision, hearing and then my left side went cold and numb. The CT came back clear and I was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines ( although I had no headache or migraine at the time) I have however suffered with migraines for almost 12 years.
The numb feeling has not gone since then and I have days where I find it hard to walk as my leg feels so heavy. My left eye hurts and I feel like I am wearing a pho Tim of the opera cold numbing mask (had my eyes checked and I don’t need glasses)
i hadn’t realised that I suffered with my balance until co-workers pointed out that I often walk into door frames or the corners of the desks. I used to just laugh it off.
I also suffer with extreme tiredness daily and since March I struggle remembering words and occasionally stutter. My memory seems so bad right now. I am struggling at work and trying to be a mum and housewife.
I was referred back to neurology and had my appointment yesterday, we covered many of my symptoms but I forgot to mention my lack of balance. She is sending me for an MRI and a lumber puncture to rule out MS. (Also a huge blood work to be taken)
have any of you suffered the same symptoms or previously been misdiagnosed??
