I have been to neurologists, MD's, internists, etc., etc. And they cannot figure out what is wrong with me. Here are my symptoms:
1) Numbness/tingling (almost like you have just been to the dentist) only it is on just the right side of my head and face. From my forehead around and down around my eye socket and even into my upper lip and nostril area, but just on the right side. This is constant and will not go away.
2) burning/tingling in the upper back and shoulder on my right side as well.
3) Burning/pressure like feeling behind my right knee.
4) Tiredness
5) Bouts of not being able to walk (usually in the mornings when getting up) because my legs feel like they just won't work for me.

I recently went to the emergency room because the numbness/tingling feeling that I have in my face and head on the right side moved into my shoulder, arm, back, leg, and the entire right side of my body. I though maybe I was having a stoke. They admitted me into the hospital for 3 days. They ran MRI for head, spine, and body. This was negative for MS, lupus, or any other conditions (all normal). CAT scan (normal), doppler imaging (for stroke) - (normal), EKG (normal), Two EEG's (normal), lots of blood work (normal), and several other tests. Everything has come back with no problems found. Although the numbness on the entire right side of my body subsided, the numbness and tingling in my head and face have remained. I still havet the other symptoms as well. Noone can seem to figure me out. PLEASE HELP!!! - Thanks :)
