Hello all. I wasn't planning on coming back here for a while, but I'm scared and in pain. Over the past three days, I have woken up to numbness and weakness in both arms and hands. Today is the first day the weakness has not gone away. I am also experiencing debilitating fatigue and anxiety, which I attribute to my period which is due tomorrow.
As a reminder, I am a victim of toxic mold. It is mind boggling how this disease has progressed and everything I have tried has failed.
My recent labs show "normal" standard tests, except for obvious hypothyroidism and low testosterone. I got more specific testing during the summer which shows my high TGF-1, crazy IGGs, hypersensitive pneumonitis, low dopamine...I can only imagine how much worse they are are now.
I am almost certain this is neurological (mold does this to all victims), but before rushing to the ER (they NEVER know what to do with people like me), I am curious if anyone else has gotten an explanation to the symptom. The usual things that come to mind are diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and even MS (thought to be caused by mold). I guess anything is possible, but I'm 32, have low/normal BP and fasting BS, am not even close to overweight (although mold has ruined my body composition)...and my mind is pretty freakin sharp for being so toxic.
I am totally open to suggestions. I've never been so frightened. I hate hospitals as much as most of you, but if things get worse, I will have to be open to Western medicine. I don't want to lose my arms :(
