I started having symptoms in June 2001. Very MS like: muscle pain and cramping, altered gait, tremors, paresthesias, extreme fatigue, etc. but all testing has been negative (lumbar puncture, multiple MRIs, EMG). Symptoms wax and wane - very episodic. Currently experiencing mild symptoms: gait change only if I walk more than two blocks (stiff, shuffling) but returns to normal after short rest-same for all repetitive muscle movements; intermittent facial dystonia; rare tremors; lately having problems with "writer's cramp" of the left (non-dominant) hand which releases after a few seconds. Still no diagnosis other than the focal dystonia of my face and multiple sensory absent skin sites . Often been implied that this is all a somatic disorder. Extremely frustrating!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
