Since Nov 2011 I have been having sporadic episodes of symptoms flaring up. The attacks start of with fatigue followed by not knowing where I am to complete loss of communicating and understanding what to say and do.
The attacks have started to occur regularly now for over eight days and not knowing the duration or severity of the attack is scary.
From start to end of the attacks other permanent symptoms I have are also affected.
Fatigue > brain fog > increased pins and needles > loss of cognitive ability > temp paralysis in both arms > squeeze below chest > brain fog > symptoms start improving and back to normal.
Duration used to about an hour in length and attacks were happening every other day.
For the last 8 days in a row I’ve had the same attacks with various sensory symptoms. The increase in duration is starting to worry me. I do recover but I’m scared because I don’t know if I will recover or not, or will the attacks affect me badly that I may be out for six.
How do you cope with these type of attacks? Can anything be done to slow down these attacks? Speed up recovery?
The attacks now last for about 4-5 hours, they only used to last 15 mins before.
Any advice or what to do to help with the attacks would be much appreciated.
