Severe neurological symptomsHi,
I've been ill for about a year now and been admitted one time in October and twice in November. The first time I was admitted the doctors suspected I might have had a stroke due to my symptoms. Here I underwent some blood tests, 1 CT and 2 MRI-scans. At that point I had some dysarthria(such as stuttering) and mild difficulty in moving. I got the diagnosis stress and bodily distress syndrome. I got discharged after my third admittance after a week (end of November 2015).
Since December my symptoms have been static and been the following:
- can't walk (use a walker)
- dysarthria (very slurred speech and slow speech)
- difficulty writing (very messy and hard to control)
- can be hard to hold on to object (they often slip out of my hands)
I didn't experience any accident, this all happened suddenly by itself.
In the middle of December I started receiving physiotherapy, ergotherapy and psychologist help.
I have done all this everyday since. My physiotherapy consists mainly of:
Balance training, walking down a walking bar, sit up/sit down exercise.
Since the beginning of January I have suspected I might have some ataxic disease. Which my father who is a specialist doctor, also thinks. My wife doesn't think I have this.
My GP thought I might have Wilson's Disease, so at the end of February me, my father and wife (the two people who help me the most) went by train to a hospital in Aarhus and had me tested for this. A while later results showed I don't have Wilsons (thank God), however a doctor at that hospital agreed with us that I might have some ataxic disease.
In the middle of March we visited Denmark's ataxia specialist, Jørgen Erik Nielsen, at Rigshospitalet, he did a physical examination of me and didn't think I have ataxia.
I receive help for the most basic things such as eating, putting clothes on, personal hygiene and more. I get all this help from my wife and father. In May my father, who is a specialist in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery, arranged a third MRI-scan for me. The specialist we visited in March saw this MRI and saw some unspecified change in this, but not sure what it is.
On 10 & 11 July I was tested under him - some blood tests, a lumbar puncture and a PET-scan. On 12 September I had a meeting with the doctor and he said the blood tests showed my nerve Neurofilament light chain was damaged and the MRI from July compared to an MRI from December and it showed minimal shrinkage of my cerebellum. All in all the conclusion was that I might have something neurodegenerative and definitely a cerebellar disease.
I met a homeopath last Saturday who prescribed me some medicine- I started taking it this Wednesday - Lachesis which I took till Thursday and aside from this I was given Phos and one time nux vomica. I have taken Phos yesterday and today and will wait with nux. Lachesis I was given because of left to right symptoms, which I had almost a year ago and don't feel it's relevant.
- Bullied as a child until 18/19 years of age. This was during childhood, kindergarten, elementary school, high school, and college.
- When I started in business school at age 19 I became more and wasn't bullied any longer. I also started doing a student job which contributed to me becoming more outgoing.
- I could tell more about myself but I'd like to hear if you feel other medication is also relevant?

Every homeopath may see the case differently. Or open the case differently.
What you are asking is for a homeopathic second opinion. Since you already have a homeopath, you would want another qualified person to look at and retake your case.
And some homeopaths are going to approach the pathology first and then move on to layers that show up. Others are going to try to find the main match to everything and see how that works out.

We had a very experienced homeopath from Norway on here for a time. He does or did free second opinions. It would be worth asking him about your case. I will look up his site and post it for you.
