My journey started 6 years ago. I started going to the Dr for some weird neurological issues at the age of 23. Long story short, after all of the tests (blood, emg, mri's, and clinical exam), he said benign fasciculation syndrome. A few months later, my stress decreased and the weird neurological stuff greatly reduced. That's the first time I felt the tremors.
In 2015 I took a medicine called Phentermine. It jacked my nervous system up. Started with stabbing pain in my head. The pain moved to my face. Brain fog and confusion followed, and then came the muscle stuff worse than ever. All of the twitching, muscle cramps, foot drop, balance issues, and internal tremors at night. At my worst periods of stress, my left leg started having a very visible tremor, as well as my right arm. Both incidents we're short lived. It felt like I was losing the ability to use my arms and legs. They sent me to the Mayo clinic. I saw many doctors and performed many tests. They again concluded benign fasciculations. About 4 months after Mayo, the nervous system started to relax and the symptoms went away again.
January 2018, the stabbing headaches came back again. The stabs moved into the face and even occasionally in my limbs. My neck randomly became so stiff for about a week. The headaches have again mostly subsided about 6 days ago followed by more neurological stuff. In the past six days, I feel the internal tremors at night, as well as during the day now. My jaw and tongue have tremors that come and go that makes my teeth chatter and feels like I can't talk. I have random bouts of severe nausea and vomiting as well as dizziness and sweating during an episode. My entire body is twitching all the time. I can often times feel the tremors in my arms, but they aren't visible and it feels like I am losing control of my limbs. The tips of my fingers and toes lose sensation, then get stiff. When an episode gets bad, I get bad nausea and sweating. The muscles in my limbs start to feel a little tight like they are about to all start cramping. My right eye gets blurry and sees double vision. My legs sometimes give out a little, but I catch it. Yesterday was my first time having balance issues, which I think the dizziness and confusion played a big role in.
To me, this seems to clearly be Parkinson's. I worked with pesticides for 6 years. I'm 29 years old now. I am hoping and praying that it goes into a quiet period again as I transition to supps, diet, and exercise to promote brain health. Hopefully if it is Parkinson's, that will greatly slow the progression and symptoms like some claim it does. When the attacks happen, which is usually a few times during the day and night, I get overwhelming anxiety with it. The anxiety, nausea, and dizziness has been the hardest part so far.
What do you guys think? I could use some cheering up. I just had my first child a month ago and will lose my job if this is Parkinson's, so I'm a wreck right now. I'm being referred to another neuro.
