I'm new here, and would love to hear any ideas you may have, either for the illness causing my symptoms, OR for tests that should be run.
It started just over 2 years ago, about a month or so after my youngest daughter was born. It was funky little shock like feelings in my left calf, they were extremely annoying, and kind of painful...since then things have progressed. Below is a list of most of the symptoms I have had since it all started.
*Electric shock sensations body-wide
*Sore spot on scalp
*Muscle twitches in legs (fasciculations)
*Sudden jerks in the legs, ankles and wrists (and once in the neck)
*Clumsiness (dropping things, trouble picking things up)
*Neck pain (like a kink in the neck but lasting weeks or even months)
*Stiff left calf muscle
*Numb left side of my throat and mouth
*Muscle spasms (mild to moderate) in legs, arches of feet, stomach, back and neck
*Stabbing pain through the eyes
*Inability to swallow solid foods for 1 month, and throat intermittent throat discomfort since.
*Numb hands when waking up
* Plantar fasciitis (??)
*Weakness in hands and arms
The tests I have had done are:
Various blood tests (all normal, except chronically elevated lymphocytes and liver enzymes)
CT scan of brain and c-spine (normal)
Barium Swallow (showed possible esophageal web)
Gastroscope (completely normal, despite results from the barium swallow)
MRI of brain and c-spine (clear, I’m told)
Psychological Evaluation (I passed, without a prescription being issued! LOL)
If there's anything else you'd like to know, ask away. I've had 3 different PCP's since this all started, and 1 neurologist (who was completely disinterested), I have heard a multitude of possible diseases listed (including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia...you get the drift) and would just love some answers, no matter what they may be.
So...bring it on. I'm at the point where I am looking to take any ideas I can find to my doctor (who's at a loss, and I have a great relationship with).
Anyway, thank you muchly!
