i have had problems for a year now. started out with numbness in my legs and feet with pain in my back. the numbness in my feet went away for a little bit and has now come back. i have very sharp pains in the side of my butt! it shoots pains down my legs. i can't hardly work any more i'm in so much pain when i work to much. i sit at home on a heating pad all the time to try and releive the pain. i get so tired. by the time i get up and get ready for work i'm ready for a nap. i have been very active in my life and always on the go. now i'm 47 and having these problems. i really can't sleep anymore. when i do get to sleep i will sleep a couple of hours and wake up and then it's so hard for me to fall back to sleep. the doctors have told me it can be ms or fibromyalgia. i have mri's done and ct scan's done. my last lab results came back normal except it said i had a past exposure to epstein barr virus....what ever that means....i'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. i want to find out what is wrong and try to get my self and life back on track. anyone have any info that i could gather? i would be so gratefull!!!!
