I am a 32 yr old woman with 2 kids. My husband recently left me because I was having serious issues that kept getting worse but he puts me off as a nutcase and nothing is wrong, i just want ppl to feel bad for me. My symptoms are, which have only been worsening, bladder leakage..numbness and tingling in all extremeties, falling randomly due to legs giving out, dizziness, vertigo, headaches (severe), lack of ability to think straight, lathargic, balance issues, and loss of hearing just to mention a few. I had a MRI of the brain w and w/out contrast coming back as normal. My neurologist is a nutcase, both my husband and I heard him say that if the brain came back ok, he was ordering a T-spine and C-spine because MS does not always show in the brain but now he denies ever saying that and it is not dictated in his notes. I have a family history of MS and all the symptoms. But now the MRI came back fine and he says it is stress and brushes me off. In the meantime, I have had my children taken away from me by their dad until I find out what is wrong and get help and I am now at a dead end. Everyone thinks I am crazy and making this all up (why I would do that I do not know) but now I am forced to seek another neurologist which I can not get into see until late April. I can not work, unless I find a job where it is exceptable to piss yourself and walk into walls and fall asleep randomly. I am at a dead end here and this alone is going to put me into depression. Let alone I am in severe pain much of the time and have nothing to take because this dr thinks I am nuts. I found out after I started seeing him that he has a horrible reputation for misdiagnosis and being a jackass. I just do not know what to do. I have Meniers Disease which causes some of the symptoms such as vertigo and headaches and balance issues but everything else can only be explained by damaged T-spine which I need a dr to order an MRI of...I understand people go years without a diagnosis but I can not wait years to get my kids back and now the whole family thinks I am crazy and don't feel the kids are safe with me until I find out what is causing my problems and start getting help for them. Anyone else have this sort of problem? I feel so alone with this. My husband left me and took the kids thinking I am a attention seeking, lying, making up symptoms (although he has seen me in action) and I just want ppl to feel bad for me. I feel so alone in so many ways right now. I do not have insurance and no income because no job will keep me. My husband thinks I just dont want to work. Rediculous. I am a paralegal and made good money. If I could work I would! I just need support and have NONE because no one understands the severity of the Meniers Disease and passes me off as a loon now that the MRI shows nothing =/View Thread
