I have major medical issues that I can't seem to get a diagnosis for, At first I was told it was most likely Lupus so I was sent to a rheumatologist who said it wasn't Lupus. My symptoms are getting worse and I don't know what to do or which doc to ask. It started about eight years ago with hair loss, short term memory loss, fevers, and bacterial rashes. I went to the hospital after passing out and they told me it was most likely the West Nile Virus. Soon after I began to have difficulty swallowing and stomach pain. I saw a gasteroenterologist who said I had Dysphagia and my stomach and intestines contacted incorrectly. No treatment was ever suggested. Soon thereafter I began to experience joint pain and dizziness. I now have to catheterize to urinate at all. For the last year I have stopped having my period, lost 40lbs, began vomiting 4-5 times a week. Lately, I have been having slurred speech, or using the wrong words, and when I walk I am off balance. Like I am falling forward. I am scared that by the time I am correctly diagnosed it will be to late to do anything about it. I'm only 38, and not yet ready to go.
