Hi Jon,my name is Nick and i think i have something very similar to you,again with no apparent medical cause.However,my symptoms started whilst i was using recreational drugs(cocaine mainly).I went to sleep one sunday night loaded on booze and coke and woke up with slightly tight fuzzy head(similar to nervous exhaustion,fatigue)Constant dull to painful headache/pressure in various places around the head,particularly the temples.Weakness/shaking in the legs round the knees(constantly when standing),sensations of bodily weakness and underfoot movement(like someone's slowly pulling the carpet out from under you);these build up when you stand still almost like you have a gentle weight pushing down on you.Pervious to this(6 weeks)i had my first bad drug experience.It happened to be on coke and booze,although i had done tons of speed and pills for several years with no bad effects.Anyway,i had a bad heart scare,it started beating erratically(fast and slow,sometimes missing a beat);i **** it big time.I was in total panic,scared for my life,i went to a friend's to calm down;despite all this i carried on doing coke(i was addicted).But from that day on i had a constant slight nervous shaking though my whole body,with acute attention of my heart behaviour;in fact it seems to beat harder(not faster)now or at least feels like that in my head and neck.Well,nine months later from that i again awoke after another loaded night,to find that my symptoms felt worse and my vision was now patchy/blurry like sunspots or when you rub your eyes and open them,except it didn't completely fade away.I too,see movement in my peripheral vision field sometimes and if i look at an object for a while,it appears to move/distort like when i was tripping on drugs.I stopped using drugs completely then,i was so scared and panicked by the way i was falling apart that it stopped me dead.That was 18 months ago,recently i had a bad bug/flu,whatever-Iwas vomiting,had the **** bed for 2 days,off work a week.In that time,my shaking/weakness has got a lot worse,fatigue,headaches also,hard to keep a clear head now-bad enough before;i have left my old job,i can't handle it now.I have had blood tests,seen and ent specialist,MRI scan,acupunture,chinese herbs,reflexology,massage,crainial osteopathy,prozac,amytriptilene,nutritional and vitamin therapy,ECG test;the bloody lot.NOTHING,ZIP,ZERO. Or so the establishment tells me........Depression,anxiety over this are now rising fast and hard,until recently this was just managable.I am just about keeping the wolf from the door and following the last line of investigation-Psycotherapy/hypnotherapy-sound wacky?Well do some checking and ask yourself if you had some very stressful past experience or fear that could be coming out in you now through illness.Try looking at Post traumatic stress disorder/anxiety neurosis and psycosomatic illnesss,if you think any of this applies.They think i'm a mystery too.....however my psycotherapist told me he has seen people who turned to him in desperation,after having seen every doctor,having every test known to man with no avail(sometimes 17 years down the line);only to find that their problem is psycological.The last place anyone would look,the brain's a powerful thing.....but what it creates it can remove,with help.I hope my problem lies there and that it can be attacked.....maybe yours does too.Be warned though,there are no quick answers here,the workings of the mind are vast and complex to say the least and very individual.Hypnotherapy may be the quickest way there.
Anyway,hope you got some food for thought and that your life finds salvation one way or another;don't know about you but only God know's how much more i can take of this..........Nick.
