31 yr male good shape. I have had crazy health issues lately and docs still dont' now what. It all started with chronic acid in my stomach and swelling like pregnant when I ate. Maybe unrelated but I now have neurological symptoms. My
entire body would go into a seizure like state for 10 minutes just shaking but while I was awake. This finally passed a couple weeks ago until yesterday. My left underarm started hurting and a little swollen, then both arms went numb, midsection numb, arms and back tingling all over. Went pale white and shaking again all over. Almost passed out. I worked out the night befor so maybe I strained a nerve? I get a weird buzzing feeling in my chest like it is hollow.Docs have me scheduled for a neck and head mri next week. I couldn't do the first mri because I get dizzy laying straight on my back. They lock your head onto a board and put a blinder on you for 40 minutes! I have pain in the armpit now and numbness coming and going. They have checked heart its ok. Any help? Thanks so much. sorry so long. I hope after its figured out I can help someone in this situation get help sooner.

  • Also to explain the stomach acid more. i get a pain under my right rib and it swells and kills if I eat anything fatty or sugary. Sugar makes my muscles start to twitch in my arms,legs and chest. A natural doc told me I have a swollen large intesting area and maybe leaky bowel for what its worth.

  • One more thing as if this wasn't long enough. I've had lower back and neck pain lately. Went to chiro since I figured it couldn't hurt. He said my chest was out of line and my neck too. Said is mri is negative then I could have a damaged nerve in underarm chest area that he can help with. I never know if these guys are truthful or just money hungry. I get numbness in lower back at times so i would do a backflip if this was the problem.
