Anyone with Cushings Disease have these symptoms - any other ideas??
Doctors haven't been able to diagnois me due to unusual symptoms. Is anyone familiar with these symtoms? at rest muscle twitches and body jolts, jaw-cheek pain, cold mouth, tingling tongue, excess saliva, and multiple joint-tendon popping and pain.
Sept 07 1'colon removed due to pre-cancerous mass (coincidense that the next problems start 2 weeks after surgury?? Doctors cannot relate the two)
Oct 07 stabbing/burning pain at base of skull with neck and shoulder pain that popped 300+ times a day for 4 months (tried with no luck: chiropractors, physical therapy, ibroprofen, hot and cold packs, physiatric dr gave oral steroid, neck x-ray normal, brain and neck MRI were normal)
Jan 08 to present - body jolts started (along with random screams, which happened hundreds of times a day and now only happens with the at-rest muscle twtiches and jolts), (EMG done on right arm was normal, tried chiropracter again, all blood work (including lymes 2 times) were normal, 2 more steroid shots - no help.)
Then the muscle twitches, involuntary movements, tongue tingling and jaw pain started (neurologist had me try neurontin=no help and did chest x-ray=normal, blood showed high inflammation which they retested with normal results months later)
Over 2008 I seen a couple neurologist who could not diagnois me. Oct 08, my knee started doing the exact same thing as my neck initially did (pop/pain hundreds of times a day with heat increasing pain), and has lasted the last 4 months. They say I have bursitis in knee but cannot get it in the neck. (This may or maynot have no impact on diagnois.)
I recently have also gotten excess saliva quite often, also a very cold tongue or mouth. Less severe is I also feel pressure in my ear(s) and have a soar heart sometimes. My doctor looked at ear and heart=normal. I have been taking Celexa for the two months to see if symptoms change which they have not - I tried telling them it wasn't physcological but have to prove it I guess.
