Hello everyone!

I am so frusterated! 2 months ago i woke up and my fingers and toes were numb and it felt like pins and needles were in my feet at my first attempt to walk in the morning. It it worse after i have been sitting or asleep. I got an MRI of my brain and the results were normal...my blood tests were normal...now my neurologist has taken a few more blood test that i am waiting on. He is stumped because i have a few other wierd symptoms...my face hurts! it is sensitive to the touch, my jaw hurts when i open it too wide and my sternum hurts when i laugh. Im just so frusturated and the waiting to get diagnosed is killing me!!! I also have numbness in my neck or spider feelings when i slouch. I work at a omputer all day so this could have somehting to do with it i have no idea. Back also hurts near the shoulder on the right side. Any hlep or advice would be great!! thanks everyone~

  • Hello,I have very similar symptoms, tingling on side or tip of nose, bad burning on my lower legs and feet, and occasionally my hands and fingers tingle and burn. All LP and MRI's, and blood tests have come back as normal. I have two theories as to what it could be. 1) That I have fibromyalgia or arthritis and that it has been caused by some sort of neck trauma which I did have following a bike accident. 2) That I have been bitten by a flea or biting fly, or a nymph deer tick and that I am suffering from Lyme disease. I have had numerous tests, ELISA and western blot but both came back negative. Foods that seem to help are staying away from white flour and processed foods, sugar etc.I take 120mg of Q10 and sea kelp plus tablets, drink lots of filtered water and try to eat lots of quinoa and it seems to help stem but not cure the symptoms.Good luckDavid
