I am a Chronic Migraine sufferer, with Fibromyalgia/CFS, PTSD,Bipolar, Depression, Asthma, Mild COPD.
On February 23, 2012 I started getting a pain in my forehead that mimics a Migraine at first but never goes away only worsens. on Mother's Day it went into a Full blown Migraine which normally I can relieve by using an ice pack. This relieved the Migraine portion of the pain, but not the head pain itself. I have been having visual disturbances in which my vision goes a frosty milky white. I have had a Normal General MRI (ie. no tumors). I do have a deviated Septum which has gotten worse, but I have not been back to the ENT doctor. I use Ayr/Fluticasone. I have a Concentric Bulging Disc in my L4-L5 Region. I can no longer comprehend how to work out any math problems in my head or on paper, I have to use a calculator. When I look at text it looks fuzzy. I just went to the eye doctor and had my vision tested and found out I have lost most of my Peripheral Vision. I have the eye doctor stumped as there is nothing definitively wrong with me. I am slated to got see a neurologist in October for this pain in my head. However, I am seeing my regular doctor tomorrow due to an increased weakness and exhaustion that is beyond CFS. I always feel like I am never getting enough oxygen, but yet with the oxygen meter it says my oxygen rate is good. The other day I was so weak after walking my dog out to the field which is less than 200yds, I had to crawl up the stairs to our apartment and lay down immediately. I have also had major problems in transposing my letters with my left hand when typing and having to go back and correct them with my right hand. I constantly have involuntary muscle tremors in my legs. My legs always feel like "jello" and I often wonder if they are going out on me.
I know this is more than Fibro/CFS and my Daily Chronic Migraine. I am wondering though, could it be an Atypical or Complex Migraine?
As a side note, I just crossed my right leg over my left and got the most painful surging right at my groin area. It hits so hard I double over involuntarily. I do have Diverticulitis, but I do not think this was it, this was too far down for that. It only lasted a few seconds.
I am getting really concerned and no doctor has been able to give me a diagnosis yet.View Thread
