Patient :Hi I am a 15 year old girl and I have been having terrible weakness on the left side of my body and having really bad back pains for three months now. 2 or 3 days ago my arm has been affected and became weak to the point I can't pick up anything. I have gotten MRI all of that done with contrast but everything was normal. I had a full body MRI of the brain and spinal cord. Because I have been having severe headaches and everything was normal. I am having trouble walking I can't walk on my own. I have been very sick. Been feeling dizzy here lately I have been vomiting and having bad chest pains I went to the hospital and my blood pressure was high then dropped low then went right back normal. My EKG was normal X-ray was normal and I got discharged. Idk where to go from here I have been to a neurologist but seems like he doesn't want anything to do with me. I have been to a orthopedic surgeon and another neurologist idk if it's something with my nerves muscles or joints but I am always in pain. It's worser at night. I can't get out of bed by myself i have to have some type of support to get around. I am just so close to giving up please help me I need to know where to go from here. Even the doctor at the hospital said physical therapy may not help me a lot she doesn't know. I have tried everything. Heat, ice stretches, medications all of it but nothing is helping. Where do I go? I am close to giving up.
