My husband has short term memory loss, blacks out for an amount of time, tremors, seizures, slurred speech at times, please advise?

My husband is 54 and has been fighting all these symptoms for 4 years and getting worse. He has short term memory loss, blacks out for an amount of time, tremors, seizures, slurred speech at times and a lazy eye when all this is happening. He is on toprimate for seizures and hasn’t had one this year. He is also on propananol for his tremors and he is on an anti depressant that they just put him on recently for his mood swings. We have been to 4 neurologists in the area, general practioners, er… they all run their tests and everything comes up normal. He was in Afghanistan and after 3 months of being home he started all of these symptoms fast. First the short term memory loss, then seizures, the rest after that. He was hospitalized for a week. No doctor can figure out what is wrong with him so they just treat each symptom. Some don’t do anything. Any ideas or suggestions?

Is balding, light-headedness and fainting signs of a serious disease?

I have visited my doctor several times in the last year about various health issues that I have been faced with but I am no closer to finding out what is going on inside my body. I hope that you can help me in finding the next steps to becoming healthy again.

My most recent concern – and reason for visiting the doctor – was due to random balding. It was said that I had Alopecia Areata because of the circular patches of baldness on the crown of my head. However, blood tests were taken and everything came back fine. The doctor told me that another cause for Alopecia Areata was stress – but the fact that I haven’t felt anymore stressed than I typically would goes against that diagnoses. Nor is my condition genetically inherited. So that leaves the question: for what reason is my hair falling out at such a massive rate? (my largest bald patch is 3 by 4 inches – there is also 3 smaller 1 by 1 inch patches surrounding it).

I also paid my doctor a visit around one year ago due to regular light-headedness and fainting. He suspected that I may be anaemic but blood tests proved otherwise – I was never given a diagnoses or advise on how to deal with this issue. The light-headedness, I have learned to live with. The fainting however becomes more and more dangerous each time it happens. It recently happened when I was outside and alone which resulted in me having a rather unattractive and painful gash on the right side of my face.

I have considered the possibility that these two things might possibly be tied to one another; whether there is something in my blood causing these symptoms, or whether a poor diet could cause such things. However, I am no doctor and couldn’t possibly diagnose myself.

Other information that may be useful:

– Bad eating habits: typically one meal a day with few snacks in between.
– Healthy BMI: 5 foot 3 inches tall, 124 pounds, female, 20 years old.
– Irregular periods.
– Unhealthy appearance: pale skin, purple/yellow discoloration around eyes.
– Bad sleeping habits: undiagnosed insomnia, nightmares, sleep paralyses.

It has gotten to the point where all of these symptoms are interfering with my daily life and I would very much like to move on once and for all. I hope that you can guide me in the right direction. Thank-you.

I am currently 26 years old and was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2012?

Hi there I am currently 26 years old and was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2012 I believe. I was very apprehensive when hearing this because I had only had two seizures a year apart, the first one I was alseep and the second I was shopping. BOTH seizures came after a weekend that I had done MDMA and had tried Cocaine. I was in an abusive relationship and had also stopped eating properly and was extremely unhappy. All of theae factors definitely.played a part in my health and I feel as though it was over looked and I was looking for another opinion. I have been on and off my meds over the last 6 years simply because when I had first gone off way back 4 or 5 years ago i had NO issues. Light doesnt bug me, smell do not either. I dont see auras i dont get dizzy or anything. I have had coversations with other neurologists and they have said that many patients get off meds after this long withouy any issues. I understand this is a hard topic to discuss over the computer but I am curious as to what someone else would do for a patient in my situation. My neuro has horrible ratings and all patients feel over looked like I do. Any info wil help thank you.

I am a 44 years old female and fractured my coccygeal vertebra?

I am a 44 years old female and fractured my coccygeal vertebra 26 years ago. I did not have any pain after my fracture had healed but ever since May 2015 I am suffering from coccygeal vertebra pain. I had a MRI/NMR test in 2016 which displayed chronic inflammation of the coccygeal vertebra soft tissue. For the past two years, I have received shockwave therapy, super laser therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese and western medicine therapy. None of which worked. In september 2015, I’ve also suffered from anal pain and i found relief in coccygeal vertebra and anal pain whilst lying down on my sides. Since september 2016, my hips became sore and tender due to sleeping on my sides. Now I cannot lie down, sit or stand for long periods of time, which had severely affected my sleep. The hospital examined my hip, legs, groin, lower abdomen, pubic symphysis pain and suggested myofascial lesions (aseptic inflammation). What are some possible treatments?
