    A long read, but see if you can figure it out! in pain and in NEED of answers :(

    Here's a little Journey of my health over the past couple months. I'm at my wits end! I don't know what to do, I'm only a 19 year old female. Any advice or comments, suggestions, inferences or hypotheses as to what could possibly be going on with me would greatly appreciated. (writing this with shaky hands), here's a little in sight of what's been going on/ when it started and the symptoms i've been experiencing. I've wrote down the dates from day 1 to present (which....

    Awful headaches/double vision/fatigue/memory loss - No answers from doctors

    Hello. My dad has been having very painful headaches for a year now. They pretty much last all day and he has been taking 3 Advil 3-4 times a day to keep ahead of them. He has seen Primary Doctor, Neurologist, Neuro Surgeon, Ear Nose and Throat Doc, Eye Doctor, has had many MRI, Xrays, Ultrasounds, blood work, etc. All come up clean. His symptoms keep getting worse. Maybe 7 months ago he started complaining about the headaches waking him up out of sleep if he were to lay on his back. Then he said....

    Emotional and focus problems

    Hi, way back in the last week of August 2016 my car got a gasoline leak. It didn't seem to bad and I kept driving the car until I got a new one in the first week of October. In the last two weeks of having the car, the leak got worse. I always drove with the windows down, but I could smell the gasoline. I had headaches all the time and had trouble focusing and thinking on my feet, especially while talking to people. After I got rid of the car I started to feel better and could think more clearly....

    Brain fog and muscle weakness

    Sorry I don't know if this belongs here or not... Anyways for the last few years I have been suffering from a range of problems. Mostly mental things like brain fog, confusion, inability to focus and think straight. Also a lot of muscle aches and weakness. I find it particularly hard to walk up and down stairs because my legs and lower back seem weak and wobbly and I have difficultly balancing/controlling movement. I also often drop things especially when feeling particularly weak. I am lethargic....

    Naegleria Fowleri odds. Cause for Concern?

    I was diving the lake I live on in Ohio and got water into my nose approx 10 days ago. Then 6 days later developed nasal congestion, facial pressure, and felt tired and ill. 7th day out I had a bout of early morning diarrhea. 8th day I used a nasal spray bottle to irrigate my nasal passages and felt better.

    Hemorrhaging death in family past.

    I'm not sure where this post belongs or what site to ask this question on, but my family on my mother's side has had some strange health issues in the past. My grandfather's great aunt was only 12-16 as she had recently entered puberty and back then, there was no running water for poorer families in this area so they still had to get water from the well for a bath and warm it over the fire. Being a teenager, she didn't want to take that time, (as it's said) and she had just started....

    Arm pain after blood donation

    Hey so I gave blood recently and the woman who took my blood missed the vein the first time and gave me a nice poke; I immediately had sharp pain in my wrist and up the left outer side of my inner arm. She said sometimes they hit a tendon/nerve center and acted like it was no bid deal, so I wasn't worried. But now, two days later, I can't let my arm hang loose at my side / fully extended it in any other way without the whole left side of my inner arm experiencing sharp pain. Has anyone else....

    I had a bout of vertigo June 2016 after returning from a trip to Italy. I had bilateral crystals and epley maneuvers for both ears. To date I still have side effect of imbalance, lightheadedness consistently. I have ruled out all possible causes and hope someone out there has an explanation or similar experience to share.
