Symptoms:
Since december 2009:
Fatigue
pins and needles felling down the back of both legs. (sitting is the worst, laying better but never goes away)
Hot water feels like the skin is coming off (cold water is fine)
Weakness
Dizziness
Weight loss 20+ lbs in 3 months
Joint pain
Generalized Adenopathy (lymph node inflammation)
Headache
Blurred vision (most when looking at small print)
Nausea
Low sodium levels
Orthostatic hypotension (resolved w/medication)

Tests:
MRI negative
CT showed the adenopathy
Lumbar puncture negative
EMG neagative
Biopsy of axillary lymph node negative for lymphoma

Medications:
Neurotin
soma
percocet
gabapentin
sodium tablets

Nothing makes it better.
Could she have an infection from a sick animal or some rare thing that is not know to many?

Please help my MOM.
