I would love to either find someone who knows something about what happened to me, or had the same experience.
I am 24 years, and have had what happened to me occur two times in my life exactly 10 years apart.
I was 9 the first time it happened. I was sick for about 2 weeks with the flu and just as I thought I was getting better something terrible happened. I was sitting in my living room and noticed that I was starting to feel very weak and unable to move properly. I stood up to go tell my older brother what I was feeling and walked/fell right into a table that was on the side of the couch I was sitting on. So I sat down and immediately started crying due to being very afraid. My brother came running in and told me to stop crying, but the crying was uncontrollable... I really wanted to stop, but I couldn't. Not because I was afraid anymore, it was just impossible to stop the tears. So I used all of my strength to stand up and go into my kitchen, I grabbed a paper towel and a pen, but I couldn't write anything down.. and I couldn't talk. At the same time, my body was tingling everywhere... It was so strange. It had passed that day, but the next morning came back.. and my mom rushed me to the hospital. At the hospital, I had catscans and every test you could think of. The doctors came up with nothing.
I was very afraid of this happening again later in my life, but everyone was convinced that it was a one time deal.
A few years ago, when I was 19 the same thing happened. Couldn't talk, couldn't move, couldn't walk. My room mate had to call an ambulance to come pick me up and take me to the hospital... Where they proceeded to do a lot of other tests that I hadn't received when I was 9.. Including a spinal tap. Again I received a catscan, MRI, and all the bloodwork a hospital can do. The doctors came up with nothing.
I'm so scared. I live with this every day.. I don't know if it's ever going to happen again, because it always happens at strange times...
Again the symptoms are
Complete numbness of the entire body with a tingling sensation... Like when your feet fall asleep
No speech.. Can't move my mouth or tongue to talk or express what i'm thinking or feeling.
Can't walk... My body is so numb that I can't feel anything I do and I don't have the strength to pick myself up and move
I can think clearly, which is the scariest part... Because my body is doing something that I can't express.
It has hospitalized me twice, and i've come out diagnose free.
Does anyone have any clue what this is, or has it ever happened to you?
I need some support.
