I am 21 Years old about to be 22 very soon.
About 6 Months ago I started feeling that my elbows weren't feeling as smooth as in they felt like gears popping into place the whole movement down and up.(Kind of hard to explain). Also my right hand's fingers hurt and my hand shakes lightly when I do anything tedious on the computer. For example playing a game. After a little while like a few weeks my legs felt weak and felt like my movements were very awkward; it felt that way to me but when I asked anyone they said it looked fine. My legs felt fatigued faster as if i just sprinted 100m. Then these symptoms started to get worse little by little. It feels weird to reach out to grab anything. Like trying to reach out to pick something up with a fork across the table. Movement doesn't feel smooth at all like it is an airplane going to a storm have way.
My arms elbows and fingers feel like they something lock in place and is hard to move them. Although I can but is a lot harder than before. I get a weird feeling of something touching the bones in my forearms. Sometimes it feels slightly tingly.
Now new syptoms started to appear. Somethings I'm having difficulty saying a sentence, as if my first part of the sentence feels like the end of a very long sentence when you have run out of breathe and forcing the last bit out. Sometimes I feel Light headed when this happens (when I force myself to talk even though this happens). Sometimes there's a feeling of pressure in my chest.
I have been to my primary doctor who told me this could be early Parkinsons or geon barre. Which i researched and don't think is the class. He referred me to the neurological department in a general hospital. I have been there 4 times, all four times they have told me that I'm fine. They did 3 blood tests and everything came back normal. I have requested MRIs but they won't give it to me. I have 1 appointment with another doctor and an neurologist in the following weeks.
For Sure I know its not my Thyroid cause they checked that.
The few things I looked at is:
Arthritis. But I don't know if it gives the feeling of chest pressure and speech problem.
Carpal Tunnel. But same thing I don't know if it matches the other symptoms.
MS. A friend of mine has MS and seems to have through a few of my symptoms but not all of them and I haven't had all his symptoms. And my Vision is fine.
Anxiety. Could this be it? I talked to a nurse on the phone when the speech and chest pressure first occurred and she immediately said anxiety. Told me to exercise, do breathing exercises, ride my bike, do Yoga. I been doing 3 of the 4 and it doesn't seem to have improved anything. I been doing them for about a week: Breathing exercise(4-7-8 count). Playing Basketball, Stretching as much as possible 2-3 times a day.
I know that the doctors said there was nothing wrong with me, but I don't feel that way. My hands hurt when i do things, they don't seem as steady anymore. Chest pressure, Nashua, funky feeling when walking, having a weird feeling in arms doing the simplest things.
Please help guys. I fear it's getting worse.
Thanks for reading.
