I am a 48 year old female. My symptoms begin a few months ago following the flu shot. Coincidence or not, I have no idea. I must also mention that I do have Hashimoto's.

Symptoms: Fatigue, weakness all over, excessive yawning, excessive hunger, heat sensitivity(similar to a sun filled room or under a blanket-not hot flashes)nausea, hands jerking. My whole body feels like it's goin into a blood sugar plummet. My lower body weakness started in only my thighs. Now it is all over.

I have 16 lesions on my brain that are supposedly old and nonactive. No lesions on my spine. Spinal fluid is clear with no bands or strands. Do not or never have had optic neuroitis.
