I first started having problems in September when I developed a severe pinched nerved in the center of my back that radiated to the right side. After seeing several doctors and an Orthopedic surgeon I had no diagnosis. Since then, a chiropractor has said I have an injury in my thoracic spine that is pinching a nerve.
However, in the last few months I've really started having additional problems with numbness in my hands and feet, most significantly on my right side. My right arm is also significantly colder than my left arm to the touch and has enlarged veins. I've always had varicose veins on my right leg. I just feel like my whole nervous and circulatory system is haywire.
The chiropractor has made some adjustments in my right elbow and in my right foot that seem to help the numbness for a couple of weeks but it comes right back. Now my legs have been completely going to sleep at night just like your arm might if you sleep on it funny. It's scary. I'm hesitant to go back to my doctor because he's been completely stumped by all my previous symptoms and I've run up thousands in bills for nothing.
I tried to make appointments with several different internists on my medical plan only to be told that the doctor isn't taking new patients. I just don't know what to do next. Should I keep annoying doctors with my symptoms or should I just learn to live with them?
