    Could I have a neurological disorder or something?

    Over the past couple of years, I seem to be developing some neurological issues and they seem to be getting worst. I’m only 18 years old, but I’m constantly tired and dealing with migraines. I’ve been developing slight muscle spasm and jerks which have been really annoying. I can’t control them and I’ve been getting them a lot. I keep messing up and slurring my speech. I do smoke weed on occasion which probably makes it worse, but I really enjoy smoking. I feel like I am constantly in a dazed and unaware state. When I was twelve I had a seizure but it was only once. I have also had a history of fainting spells. Could someone please explain what all this might mean? I eat pretty healthy now and exercise regularly.

    Smoking weed should not have this effect on you. I would suggest getting an exam with.a neurologist just to be in the safe side. There are so many neurological issues that can cause those symptoms. I have Botox for migraines and they've worked wonders.

    Hello ! For 23 years I have been dealing with non epileptic seizures and going in the sun and fluorescent lighting would mottle my skin and burn but also make me " loopy ". Progressed to a point where my legs just stopped working. I also started dropping. I don't say fainting as it is different sensation but they caused the most damage with broken collar bone, rt ankle (2x), rt shoulder ( small tear and impingement by or in rotator cuff?), and my left knee that has had 4 or 5 previous surgeries, will not straighten so my gait is horrible and very painful. SO.. I'm March of 2017 I saw a Neuro at Rush and I was diagnosed with FMD or FND. The UK I think is more advanced but Neurosymptoms.org might have info . Articles have been written by Dr Stone
