ill for 3 weeks help!!!


I was wondering if anyone else has had the same symptoms and experience as me!? I am 22 years old and for the past 3 weeks I have not felt myself. Constant dizziness, headaches, feeling sick, extremely tired and not wanting to eat.

Saw two doctors who said could just be vertigo. Had obs done like blood pressure, oxygen levels, heart rate and temperature doctor said all was fine but I still feel as though I’m very poorly!!! Had a bit of a stiff neck and also pin prick like purple spots on skin show up in random places.

Doctor just doesn’t seem worried or concerned at all but I just feel like something is not right!!

Has anyone else gone through same symptoms/experience?

You should insist and see a Neurologist to confirm if it is Menijitis - and what type. Dont delay. Fight your way and demand to see specialist to rule out. Most often, the delay causes more troubles.

My doctor told me there was no sign of infection but I’ve been poorly for 21 days now and I’m just not happy with the diagnoses that I have been given. I may go back and request for a full blood count to be taken and to take this further!

Have you been tested for mono, Epstein Barr virus?

I haven’t been tested for anything! My doctor put it down to vertigo but I’m not certain!

Did you have a fever?

Hello, You can find my 28 year old daughter, Rosie S' Story, via the link on the forum stories from the home page.

We found that cranial massage worked wonders for her. Her job is working with horses on pretty much a daily basis and is very physically demanding.

It is rare for a story to be so positive and we have tried to let people know that this amazing complementary therapy worked for her. It helps release the spinal fluid which VM leaves a blockage for. Rosie is pretty much cured after around 10 sessions coupled with actupuncture, although found awesome relief after only one appointment. She is now free of all pain killers and antidepressants and feels right back to her old self.

We can only let you know what worked for her. It's not for all, but has now given amazing relief for many. It seems the success could be to do with the skill of the cranial osteopath you use. So it is important to find out the osteopaths credentials and experience in this specialised field particularly dealing with VM sufferers, if you can. (Not all osteopaths realise that this helps VM sufferers, it is often carried out on young babies with birthing problems). You need an osteopath and not a therapist who mearly has some training in cranial massage.

If you find you are getting the violent headaches and feeling lethargic and depressed after a few weeks, give this complementary therapy a go, it really could be worth it and save you being on prescribed drugs, along with months, years, of unnecessary suffering.

Kind wishes and best of luck
