Calcification of the Pineal Gland: Symptoms and Effects.
About seven years ago I was employed as a building controls engineer for a large lighting company. I traveled all over the USA programming, installing, starting up systems and training clients. After living in New York State for a year, I returned to California to live and work (I am California born and raised).
Not more than two months after getting back to California, I suddenly became very ill with symptoms much like Multiple Sclerosis; Numbness in hands, arms, legs and feet, heart irregularities, headaches, blurred vision, hearing loss, memory loss, uncontrollable hand and arm shaking, dizziness and much more.
I was fired from my job while on temporary disability, and without medical insurance. Prior to the insurance running out, I had every test imaginable done always with the same results; (There is nothing wrong with you).
Two and a half years ago I got the local doctor to order a blood test for Lyme Disease due to my living in the countryside of New York.
The symptoms I have and still experience are many and varied. They include, headaches, pain in all extremities, numbness in hands and feet, heart arrhythmia, memory loss, disorientation, balance problems, loss of weight, loss of muscle control in arms, hands and feet, and a few more.
At that point the symptoms had became worse and increased daily. I managed to get blood tests and a CT scan done and finally after all this time have a concrete report of a physical disease that may be responsible for my symptoms.
The report states in part: "Calcification is identified in the pineal as well as the choroid plexus. There is mild prominent cisterna ". "There is a small calcific density just posterior to the fourth ventrical ".
I spent years trying to get Veterans Medical Benefits set up and then be able to see a specialist or two and get further information on how serious this is and what the possible treatments and outcomes might be. Unfortunately, I have been denied any help from the VA.
I have researched this on the internet and can find only scarce information. I am curious to know if there are many others with this or similar issues and what their outcomes are or were.
I welcome comments, discussions and interaction with you on this subject. I will update this Hub as I gather more information and or get some data on my personal condition. In the meantime I write here and enjoy learning and sharing with you all.
