Around 6 - 8 months ago I started getting weakness in my legs where I was tripping with my feet as I walked along the hallways at work. A few months after that I started to notice my calves always being sore and stiff. Exercise or any activity with my legs make my symptoms worse. Then I noticed that my arms were also getting weak everytime I use them. If I lift them above my head or even typing on a computer they get somewhat numb and weak and I have to pause for a second or two to recover before I can continue. Now my calves are always sore, and a lot of times it keeps me up at night. It feels like some kind of charge going through my body while I am sleeping. I stretch everyday, and this gives temporary relief, but the symptoms come right back within an hour. I do not seem to trip as much on the floor as I did at the beginning, but the calve pain and arm weakness never seam to leave me anymore.
Tests I have been through are: Lyme disease came back negative, EMG on my legs and arms came back negative, I do not know the blood test the doctors have done, but there have been many of them and they have all come back negative. I do have some bone spurs on my neck from an auto accident many years ago, and do have a slight herniated disk, in my neck, that bothers me from time to time, but the Neurosurgeons have told me this is not the cause of the leg pain and arm weakness.
My questions are: Where do I go from here? What specialists should I see for something like this? After reading through the forum I can see that many people have similar symptoms, and many different diseases are mentioned. One can go crazy looking at symptoms online to the point that you think you are going to die of ALS in three to five years! I am just looking for solid advice from someone who has had symptoms similar to this and what they did to resolve or figure out what is going on. Thank you for any advice you wish to share!
