I'd been having tests done over the last three years for extreme fatigue and what I thought were sudden drops in blood sugar amongst other symptoms. In May 2017 I knew I was heading into another poor health period when I suffered what appeared to be some sort of cardiac attack which resulted in my having six weeks off work before returning whilst still very poorly and having to move to a sitting down role. Palpitations and occasional heart pain, a weakness that made me feel overloaded with gravity and unable to walk without holding onto the wall. Two ECG's found nothing. Occasional low blood pressure but not every attack was accompanied by this. I also noticed how difficult it was to think clearly. As my initial symptoms started to settle I realised there was dizziness. My legs were very unsteady much of the time. Never one to really suffer much with headaches, I started to have a few fast moving ones which felt volcanic and I thought I could die. Fortunately, instead of an explosion at the end of each one, they imploded, leaving me very shaky and without energy. In August I suggested to my GP that it might be vestibular which he denounced, suggesting instead that I had neck tension! I went back in October and he saw how bad I was, (on a mild day) and thought it might be vestibular! After a bit of a weight due to two cock-ups at the surgery I was finally seen by a specialist who thought it was probably Menieres or Migraine Vertigo although Multiple Sclerosis a possibility. I had an MRI and heard back there wasn't a tumour or evidence of M.S scarring though that doesn't rule it out. I'm now waiting to be seen by a physiotherapist who will try to manipulate me to see if the balance issues can be sorted. My hand movements are fractionally off target, I sometimes feel mild tremors in my hands and have mild spasms in my left leg. I'm noting this down for my own future reference.
I used to walk to and from work then be walking all day, clocking up around 30,000 daily steps. Now I can hardly walk very far, (sometimes the trip to the bathroom from the bed is all I can do), occasionally my legs go completely and I have to have a wheelchair. I've always eaten too much and sadly one's appetite doesn't change if one starts using less energy. On top of this I felt the need for sugar fixes just to get me through to my next break so would buy sweets, cake, bread, whatever I could. I seldom found the strength to make healthy lunches so here I am, huge again. I'm going to try hard although my previous successful diet wasn't confused by having a man in my life as I now do and, although he also needs to lose quite a bit of weight, he isn't very focused and brings a lot of the wrong sort of temptations into the house. I'm weak. I'm human.
