I go through spells or attacks then they go away, but when they come back they are worse than ever. IT started out with just numbness and tingling a lot. The first major thing that happened was when my leg went paralyzed for a while. By the time i got to the hospital it was better, so the doctors did not take me seriously. I would suffer from this type of attacks then a few years ago i began to get new symptoms. I became so tired and exhausted. I lost strength to do normal things. I also began to get shooting and electrical pains down my neck, arms, legs, fingers and toes. Sometimes this would lock my finger and toes in place. Here is also where i started to get dizzy all the time. it still alternated in attacks. Then about a year ago is when my eg started twitching enough to make it kick. i went to the hospital they medicated me and sent me home. the next day it was still doing it so they admitted me and ran tests said that i must be depressed. i went to a therapist and was put on Zoloft. it was convient for them that my attack settled down then. but after a few months another attack came on. so tired again, dizzy, numb, tingly, electrical pains and new symptoms. My vision became blurry and i began loosing strength in my hands. i have no depth perception and my legs are so weak that i cant walk a straight line. i am uncoordinated with my hands, trying to grab something i see and it not being where i think it is, like over reaching. i was having trouble concentrating, and even had memory loss. the most recent visit to the hospital was for my left side of body going numb. i asked for a refferal for a new neurologist because the last one blew me off. i have had MRI done but nothing yet. can it be MS, maybe in early stage? help

  • I have been trying to find things on the internet for my symtoms. At one point an Infectious Disease Specialist mention nerve pain. Although, now they seen to think it is muscle weakness. Anyways, I have check on www.webmd.com. I have also seen a Pain Specialist that did help me with my migraines by putting on High Blood Pressure medicine. That now seems to have helped my migraines but not the pain in my legs. With my insurance I can go see any specialist without a referral. I am going to see a Rheumatoid Specialist by my doctors suggestion but that is not until December. She basically told me that I will just have to suffer through the pain. Well, I am not going to suffer. I am going to find my own doctors and see if I can find someone to help with the pain now. On looking through the Internet I have come accross some things on nerve pain and you sound like you have some of those symtoms. I would do some researce on that and try to find a specialist.
