I am a 28 year old female with the following symptoms that have developed over the last 8 months (shortly after giving birth to my daughter).
Numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain on the right side of my body
Upper abdominal pain and back pain
Lower abdominal cramping
Headache (back of head on right side)
I have seen a variety of doctors and the following tests have come back normal.
All blood work (with the exception of a vitamin D deficiency)
MRI of brain and cervical spine
Pap Smear and pelvic exam
I am currently waiting the results of a spinal tap and the last neurologist that I saw has ordered another MRI with contrast this time (contrast was not done before due to breastfeeding). I have been diagnosed with everything from reflux to migraines but none of the medications have worked. What could this be?
You'll have to wait for the lab results to know for sure. IF all diagnostic possibilities have been considered, it's possibly a psycho-somatic symptom. Do you have any experience with psycho-somatic problems in the past?
All I can say in reply to your post is that this is certainly not psycho-somatic. My husband and I are diligently searching for a real medical diagnosis to a real medical condition. Fortunately, we found a neurologist that agrees that something is going on with my body that is not stress/anxiety related based on her neurological exam. I posted my story on this health forum in hopes that someone out there that has had similar symptoms can share their experience and diagnosis. Have you had similar symptoms? If so please share your story.
Hi,2 years have passed since ur post. If you have an answer please please share it or I could tell you what i've been diagnzed with. I'm really sorry for everything you went through or maybe still going thru
