i have been sick scince high school. not as bad as now but it has gotten worse and it is progressing even further. it all started with severe stomach cramps and fatigue. my stomach cramps turned into pains that brought me to tears and my fatigue has gotten way worse now. there were days that i couldn't move, my stomach hurt so much. that stayed the same for a long time, coming and going when it wanted with gut wrenching pains. i kept going to the doctor over it, they perscribed me something for stomach upset and sent me on. it didn't help. i had no idea it would get like this. in july of last year it took and unexpected change. i started walking with a gate, it hasn't gone away, but my walk always changes with it. sometimes i can walk normal. that was the beginning of an unknown path and it keeps getting worse. i started getting cramps all over my body, pains in my legs when i walk. my legs started giving out on me and i started falling, they wouldn't move and they became dead weight. i could still feel. i just couldn't move. then it went from my legs to my upper body. these spells last for about 10 to 30 min when they happen. now it is one leg or one arm that it happens to. sometimes it is both. i have been having wrenching pains in my left arm that developed last week. all of these pains hurt so bad that they bring me to tears. the arm pain lasted a good few hours, makes me wonder what is next. a new development that has been happening are streaks on my face and right arm. they look like scratches and i can feel them. the ones on my face itch, i notice them a little after i wake up. and the nausea i get sometimes, it is overwhelming sometimes. thank god for phinegrin! does anyone else have these problems? or have any idea what it may be? i am starting to freak out and am becoming desperate for answers. i have been to so many doctors and have had so many tests, no one knows anything. i have even been told it is phsychogenic, (all in my head) i know i am not crazy. i have even been to a research hospital and they wouldn't admit me, i am running out of options.
