Hi over the last few months i have been experiencing headaches on and off they can come on every day for a week not have one for a few days then have a really dabilitating one where i cant even move.Painkillers dont help.normally i get a headache about once a year until recently.I have also noticed my arms getting weaker i drop things all the time and struggle to lift them, my hands occasionally shake and i feel drunk like i could pass out.I have nearly fainted once.I am a lot more tired than i used to be, i have even fallen asleep sitting up. i cannot walk as fast or as far as i normally do.twomonths ago walking to my sons nursery was easy but now i am getting out of breathe by the end of the road and feel like i am on a treadmill i dont seem to get anywhere.Been to my GP he says i may have developed migraines but has sent me for CT scan to rule anything out.What do u think please could i get somemore advice it would really help.thankyou Kerry Stockley
According to the data you provided you might be experiencing some neurological disorder. The data is not specific enough for definitive diagnose to be given.
However, the symptoms (hands shaking-tremor, hypokinesia and postural instability) might be related to Parkinsonsâs Syndrome. Parkinsonâs Syndrome has to be distinguished from Parkinsonâs disease, although it is the most often for reason for Parkinsonâs Syndrome.
Since there are many other causes that have to confirmed or ruled out, you might want to visit a neurologist for further diagnostic procedures.
