It started two months ago with intermittent numbness, pressure, electric current feelings, weakness that would be felt off and on from one body part to the next. One half of my body would then be weak, then the next day it would be the other side only, including pressure in my eye and dimness of vision. I thought for sure i was having a stroke so went to emergency. Bloodwork and ct scan normal and doc said may be anxiety. Later in week my back, arms, legs and the back of my head shook like crazy and i couldn't sleep. Hadn't slept much in about 2 weeks. Went back to emergency, paced around my hospital bed like a crazy person until i was given some Ativan and more tests,including another ct scan. Now i take the Ativan and feel more relaxed and can sleep but the weakness is still bad to the point where i can't walk much without feeling a heaviness in the back of my head and my back, which makes me feel like collapsing. Being stuck in my house all the time is making me become mentally unglued but it's hard to do any physical activities outside the home. Anyway experience anything like this at all?
