I'm 17 years old from Chicago,IL i have the Illinois medicaid insurance and i have been experiencing the following..

Walking problems
Numbness,Tingling,Paralysis(legs & arms & fingers)
Weakness all over
Muscle spasms
vision problems
bladder & bowel issues
light headed
Vitamin D deficiency
Dizzy spells
Speech problems (slurring of words)
Pain (achy & sharp all over )
Severe constipation
chest flutters
Always tired
Mood swings
These problems have been occurring for a little over a year now, i've been tested for mono , fibromyalgia ,thyroid has been tested, my kidneys, i've also had and MRI of my lower abdominal and a colonoscopy. All of these things have come back within the norm my doctors say. Except when they did my MRI they saw that my spine was deteriorating. They have diagnosed me with Conversion disorder and i'm not buying it so where can i go to get tested on and second opinions or any suggestions you may have that's wrong with me . Anything helps thank you

  • after for being able to do a push-up , sit-ups & pull-ups . I then went to see a doctor to figure out why Imy body had weakened. soon after, I could no longer run or do squats or even lift weights anymore. took the VA (Veterans Affairs)2 whole years to guess what I have. So I really don't know what's going on at this point. Anyone care to indulge?

  • Sounds like some form of spinal muscular atrophy but I have just been reading a lot about that lately because I think I have it. I hope you get some help.

  • My goodness, you just told my story. I also have night sweats at time, gained an enormous amount of weight, my legs from knees down are swollen and a hue of red, I fall, black out time, and yes my urine feels like it's temp is 110 degrees. Not a track infection , the urine. So thanks for sharing, I will def follow hoping for something. The pain I live in daily is becoming unbearable, my vision is going, and my feet are HUGE with dots. No I am not 110 years old. My kids are suffering as well cause it's hard to attend their sports. Thanks
