My daughter has had face, leg and arm numbness on her right side for 12 weeks. She has had a CT scan, a CT-A scan, an MRI and a MR-A of her brain. Additionally she's had MRI's of her neck and lower back, as well as an MRI with and without contrast of her mid-back.
The numbness is generally there upon awakening, but can be aggravated my a back massage.
Additionally, she feels intense pressure in her forearm, as though it's about to burst. She complains about the same in her trapezius muscles.
She's been seen by a GP, two neurologists with a consult from a third, a consult with an infectious disease doctor, and a pediatrician. No one has a diagnosis. They've ruled out lots of stuff including MS, so far. One neuro wants to check again in 3 more months.
All blood tests have been normal.
She's a student and muscle relaxers put her "out of it". She has about 3 more weeks of school.
Diagnosis or sympton abatement????? HELP!!!!!!!!!
