My nuerologist just came right out and stated that he didn't have a clue. Needless to say I won't be going back to him.

Symptoms:

37 y/o female moderately obese
chronic lbp with osteoarthritis/mild stenosis
3+ years: lower r calf goes numb while walking/standing relief on squatting, bending over instances of falls due to weakness/numbness
recently upper r thigh weakness/dull aching pain
parathesia in arms/hands (diagnosed as carpal tunnel? this diagnosis after 7 years of being a stay at home mom- no computer usage, etc.) getting progressively more persistent- numb while driving, using phone, etc.
some numbness (comes and goes) in right shoulder blade area
neck/shoulder aching
vertigo over the past 6+ months
not able to remember the names for things

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
recently dx with IBS
