Had dizziness, lost feeling in legs, tremors, nervous breakdown. Lost job, had miscarriage. Suggestions?

I first started having symptoms in 2006, went to the doctors all the time and after a year they said I had POTS, dizziness , nausea from time to time, I couldn t do physical activities anymore. A jog or bike ride would make me sick. The sickness never went away but it wasn t too persistent as I didn t do anything really physical to wake it. In 2010 I was a visual merchandiser at Macy s, I just had an ectopic miscarriage , a few weeks later, extreme dizziness took over and I lost feeling in my legs, making them like Jelly. I had severe tremors. and was rushed to the ER were I stayed 3 nights. They tested me for MS and Cancer , I was cleared. Even though they said they found a small 8mm pineal cyst in my brain, I was diagnosed with having a nervous breakdown. I was told to see shrinks, and take depression and anxiety pills. I was told I can go back to work once released from the hospital to work as a visual merchandiser and climb ladders even though I almost fell several time due to balance issues only weeks before. I didn t go back into work, therefor I was fired. I was unemployable for 2 years. My symptoms started to worsen, they got better, then got worse.

Thank you for posting your query.

It is really unfortunate that you are suffering and in addition, have lost your job too.

In your case, a diagnosis has not been made yet, and that should be the first priority.

Looking at your history of problems coming and getting better and relapsing again, we need to rule out multiple sclerosis, and collagen vascular diseases. MRI of brain and spinal cord would help, so would collagen work up. If they have been done, please upload the reports.

With proper treatment, you would improve, and would be able to find employment again.

Best wishes,
