Hi! I found this site earlier today, and I FINALLY feel like I’ve found answers and people that I can relate to!! I’m so excited!
I started experiencing symptoms exactly in February after I fainted (randomly) hit my head, and got a concussion. For the past 5 months, I’ve experienced:
-light sensitivity (ESPECIALLY florescents)
-numbness on one side of my body
My symptoms are 24/7. I can no longer drive, I can’t exercise, and I can barely work (my job can be physically demanding). I want my life back. I’ve seen 5 doctors, only one of which was a neurologist. She shoved me aside after a normal EEG, saying she didn’t want to treat me for migraines, but I begged her for migraine medication. She prescribed me Topamax, starting with 25mg and eventually getting up to 100mg, which seems like a lot to me. I am a very small person and only weigh 100 lbs. Should I see another neurologist? Is there anything else I can do besides stay on course?
