I am 33 yrs old and about 8 or 9 years ago I developed a tingling sensation in both my legs. Within a month I began falling, I could be standing in one spot and suddenly just fall, like I couldn't feel my legs. within a 2-3 months I went from being a normal 25 yr old to not being able to stand on my own, extreme leg pain and numbness. I was sent for MRIs, CAT scans, blood work..I was seen by neurologist after neurologist each did test after test and found nothing wrong. My DR. even went as far as to say that it was psychosymatic that if I didn't go see a physiciatrist that he would no longer treat Me. The physiciatrist said that I was mentally fine. So, back to the drawing board. needless to say I quickly changed DR.'s. My new DR. took a look at all my previous blood work and found a slight B12 deficiency, but not enough to be alarmed about. things have gotten somewhat better, I can now walk with a cane and drive. but new symptoms are now showing, I have incontinence problems and trouble with bowel movements, I have clonus in both feet, my feet are always cold and a wide list of other things. I have tried every pain killer from injections into the spine to oxycontin. some worked too good, where I was a zombie and some were just a waste of time....so, here I am...still TRYING new medication combinations to treat symptoms but with still no closer to pin pointing the problem than I was when all this first started............I have tried to look for things and DR.'s on the internet, but I haven't the slightes clue were to start...anyone that can help any advice would be greatly appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
