Does anyomne have any ideas? In April I started having mucsle spasms in my left shoulder and suddenly lost a significant amount of strength in my right arm and hand. A month later I couldn't make it through the day without a nap and I was having trouble remembering things. This started getting better (the needing a nap and the memory) but the mucsle spasms have turned into chronic spacicity with no relief and I have never gotten my strength back, the muscles in my back and hand are starting to atrophy. I have been given MRI's, Mylograms. emgs. I have been tested for everything from Hypo thyroidism to a stroke all negative, The Dr's keep hinting at MS, but have found no lesions. All I get are more tests and a we don't know what's causing this. It's VERY Frustrating. I have been sent to several different Dr's all with their own ideas but no real diagnosis.

  • Your doctor kinda sucks by "hinting MS". Like hearing that without a proof is gonna make you feel better.Did you have a test for mineral and vitamin deficiency?
