I have been having many neurology symptoms for about two

Customer Question

I have been having many neurology symptoms for about two years now (after hysterectomy). Have had test after test with no answers. I thought the doctors were getting somewhere when my second MRI showed white spots on my brain. But all the blood test and Lumbar Punctures results are 'normal'. Doctor said white spots can be from migraines (I don't get), high blood pressure (I don't have) or prior head injury. But that does not explain my symptoms:
tiredness/lack of energy (use to be on the go all the time)
memory problems (use to have a photographic memory)
declined cognitive function/foggy head-can't find right word, say wrong words or pronounce them wrong, lose train of thought,forgetful, slow thinking/processing...(so not me)...I actually get pain in my head when I try to think too hard
get very overwhelmed and frustrated when have to think about too many things at son asking questions while I am writing this (use to be able to do 10 things at once with ease and calmly).
sharp pain shooting in different parts of body, sometimes even on head
Get dizzy/red in face and hard time breathing when I sit forward for too long
muscles tire and ache after short walk (use to walk 17 miles/day with no issues)
tingling in all limbs
swelling in hands/fingers/toes/feet/calves
'limping' gait sometimes
walk very slow even when trying to catch up/stay up with family
loss of dexterity and grip - drop things all the time and clumpy (bum into things)
eyes out of focus (had them checked-nothing)
achy joints (worse with activity) and joints/hips/back pop all the time
Explosive, urgent, loose BMs...a polyp was found (not cancer and removed), Doctor said more fiber.
breast tender
dizzy, sometimes feel like going to pass out (but haven't yet)
I have been tested for (and all 'normal'):
Vit/mineral deficiency
nerve damage
sleep disorders
hormonal imbalances
any pretty much everything else it seems.
I was told I have Fibromyalgia but only explains some of the pain and tiredness not the rest.
I have had to quit my job and my qualify of life has decreased significantly due to whatever is going on.
