I'm now 35 years old & started having problems in 2003 when I was 27. I had half my face droop & the other half paralyzed. Went to the ER & they miss diagnosed me with Bells Palsy. 2 months later I went back to ER for chest pains, left side weakness, I was kept overnight only to find I was paralyzed the next day! I spent months in a wheel chair on and off. I've had several lapses 12-24 in a given year. I've seen about 19 Dr.s & spent over 25k so far. All the Doctors I have seen including the ER Dr.s can't tell me anything! Most of them state "that it's all in my head or stress related!" I started having convulsions/seizures a few years after which followed by Foreign Accent Syndrome(now speaking in a British accent) diagnosis @UT Dallas by Dr. Katz in 2006. This week we have spent another 2k to repeat the same test before. I've had Dr.s @ Breckenridge Hospital tell me rudely & acted put out "Just deal with it!" & a Neurologist Dr. F in Round Rock Texas, says it's nothing but stress. I had several MRI's & CAT showing normal, but a spinal tap showing 85% negative for MS. I tried to establish a new family Dr. with Dr. G in Georgetown , Texas & came across so many new worries, she decides to take a personal phone call speaking another language for about 10 minutes & ends the call in English, "Okay I'll bring some off the shelf!" Then says my lab work was normal & the rheumatoid factor being 71 instead of 30 or below "It just means you have a weak immune system." Getting the feeling this doctor did not care, I changed to another doctor. My new physician can't believe all I have been through with finance & neglect . My current doctor is checking me for Lupus. I want to thank all my friends & family for all their help and support. okay and my hubby Randy! ;0) My A.N.A.(antibodies in the blood) also tested "positive" along w/Rheumatoid Factor being more than double. My purpose for this post is to get this out there in hopes to find others that have endured, dealt with or are struggling w finding a diagnosis. I can't be the only one out there suffering from this. I don't want people to feel sorry for me... My purpose for posting this video in hopes of finding answers. Thank for viewing!
