Hi, I'm new to this site and I'm looking for some answers, if anyone can help me.
For the past year my left leg has been acting strangly. Sometime I wake up and try to get out of bed but then it suddenly feels like it's not there and it refuses to move. When I walk up stairs, it starts to do the samething, halfway up the stairs it falls asleep (as I've decided to call it) and then I have to grab something before I fall sideways. It just seems to refuse to move. The best way to describe it in words is when you're standing up and walking in a line, the leg feels like it was suddenly sliced off or disappeared or like you never had it all. It also kicks in when I sit down and stand up. The unbalancing makes it very uncomfortable to walk around outside.
It only happens once in awhile and then after a long night's sleep there's a 50% chance that my leg goes back to normal the next day. I went to the doctor about it and all she could say was to eat more bananas with potassium. I've been eating bananas for a really really long time and nothing's really changed.
What's going on with my leg? How'd it start? How do I stop it?
