Question: Strange Syptoms
|Shigorah - Thu May 17, 2007 2:01 am||
I am a 25 year old, 5 foot 6 inch, 125 pound female. I have had Migraine headaches since I was 7 years old. About a year ago I had a headache that lasted three months. My doctor sent me for an MRI. The MRI came back normal. At the same time I also went and had a sonogram of my chest for a lump. It came back normal. Since then I have been sick off and on consistantly, Infection after infection. Recently, I was on antibiotics for a month, for an upper respiratory infection, then for a sinus infection. I still have both infections. All the while I have had a Migraine. I've had a migraine for a month straight. I get bruises for no reason especially on my legs and hands. I normally have very low blood pressure. Two days ago, my vision started "whiting out" almost as if someone shined high powered lights into my eyes. It didn't hurt but I was blind. I went and saw my doctor and when she took my blood pressure it was 140/105. I had to beg her not to send me to the emergency room. I keep getting pains in my lower back and side on my left side. About a week ago a retook lab tests because they first came back with high billirubin, and white blood cells/ red blood cells in the urine sample. I just got them back and they are now fine. I feel aweful though and it's not getting better. The weirdest thing that I keep on experiencing is deja'vu, I consistantly have that really annoying deja'vu feeling. I'm climbing the walls cause I don't know what's wrong with me. The doctor says that I should see a neurologist. I don't really like the idea of accumulating doctors or being subjected to unnecessary tests. What could this be?

Unfortunately, I can't come up with much in the way of diagnoses that would explain all your symptoms. There definitely seems to be something neurologically going on. I would agree with your doctor regarding the need to see a neurologist.
Specialists can be of great help in determining what testing is needed to make a proper diagnosis.
