I have firbomaygia but have symtoms that were never covered in that condition. I have extreme muscle spasms, seizers to the point that I had gone to a neurologist to be tested for MS. He did a MRI of my brian and he said it was fine. Monday I went to Rehab. Doctor and he was testing my reflexs and he said that they were very brisk, and then he looked at my fingers and he said they are seizering. He asked me to get MRI to look for MS again. He then added that I have a nervous system problem he just doesn't know what.
I also have problems with my joints and I have been tested for RA but was negative, he said I have the symptoms of that. I also am not able to lose weight at all when I have always been able to before.I work out 4-5 days a week for 1 and 1/2 hours and eat only 1500 cal. They tested my thyroids twice. The first time it was low and the second time it was high.But with in an alright range, but both ways only by 2pts. The tests were only 1 week apart.
What in the world is going on? My Primary is not understanding why I am upset all he wants to do is through a pill at it. Should I try an internest instead? Maybe an Endocradiligst, for the weight and thyroid issue? and a 2nd nerologist? But what are the chances that something would show up in the second MRI after only 6mo.?

  • From what I understand, MS is an auto-immune disorder. I see a neuro with my MS symptoms. I see a chiropractor. The chiropractor believes all nerves respond well to proper spinal alignment. I saw a reflexologist for fibro, and I responded really well and felt better having a detox once a month and regular colonic irrigation as all the toxins in my body were no longer building up.

Your thyroid needs much more thorough testing with an endocrinologist IMO. You may have an autoimmune thyroid condition causing your symptoms. I would definitely get another opinion on that. What meds are you currently taking? BTY, acupuncture and Oriental Medicine are brilliant for most autoimmune diseases. Best wishesDOM
