I have had headaches for the past 3 years. Seen a lot of doctors with various diagnosis. They aren't migraines because I use to have them before I had a hysterectomy. I also have white spots on my brain. My current Neuro thinks I am having small strokes, which could be but doesnt explain the sharp shooting pain in my arm. I have been tested for diabeties, lyme disease, MS,thyroids all negative.Back in 2005 they did a nerve conduction study which only came back with low blood pressure near my elbow. Past three weeks I been having numbness in my hands and it started to move up my arm.two weeks ago my doctor said it maybe carpal tunnel. For whatever reason my neuro doesnt think my arm has to do with my headaches. But after I have the shooting pain in my arm I get a whopping headache.Today my right side of my face was twitching along with my left arm which is the one that I have the shooting pain in my arm. 3 months ago I had my cholsterol tested which is 309, dr says it has to be genetic because I barely weight 100lb. I also have frequent urination, my vision is kind of blurred an nothing seems to fill me up when I eat. But the worst part is the pain I get in my arm all day long feels like someone is stabbing it. I finally kicked this doctor to the curb after I told her I couldnt deal with the pain and working, she told me that I could still type with my right hand, I thought oh yes lets see how you would feel if someone was stabbing you in the arm and you had to type with one hand. any help would be appreciate

  • Get the Western Blot test for Lyme. I had much of what you are saying and got dx'd with Fibro. Three yrs later, the real Dx is Lyme, after abt 15 yrs of all the symptoms and a bunch of negative tests!! This can be Lyme or MS"" I also have white spots on my brain"". It will only get worse if you don't get to the bottom of it. I sympathize with you having had this done "nerve conduction study ",!!! Maybe check out your minerals too, magnesuium can help with the muscles and twitching. Hope you feel better soon. Best Wishes.
