It's been 2 friggin months and nobody knows what happening.
I've had 7 viles of blood taken, A catskan, MRI, and a Nerve Shocking test.
All my results are negative so far but the MRI showed muscle spasisms. The muscle spasisms are completely unrelated to the whole numbness thing.
Ever since i've gotten my MRI the numbness has been nonstop and now, i get worse at night. Everytime i move i feel like my blood is cold water. I told my dad and he said it sounds so stupid and he doesnt even believe me anymore. The next neurologist appoinment could be the last.
If i cant get a diagnosis from them i need help off here.

  • This could be a complete long shot but check to see if they have run a copper test from your blood. I had a relative that had knumbness isssues for a long time and they really couldn't come up with a reason she went to many specalists and had surgery on another part of her body that they thought was causing it. Then finally it was found she has a copper defficiency that has killed off the ends of her nerves. Essentially she takes a vitamin now and thats all she can do. They had only seen a couple of cases of this and I guess copper is usually not checked because it is so rare. So not that it is your issue but could be something to ask to see if your copper levels have been checked at all.
