I've diagnosed myself with cronic paresthia in my left thigh. I have achiness, numbness, shooting pains, crawling, tingling and electric sensations. NOT pleasant.
I have numbness and tingling, at times shooting nerve pains in my right foot.
The numbness in my thigh and toes never goes away.
I've had the numbness in my thigh for 1 year and the toe numbness started 1 month ago.
2 Doctors have told me it's possibly MS or a tumor on a nerve. However, the MS doctor today said my symptoms are because I'm 208 pounds. (i'm 5'5) He thinks it's a compressed nerve, however, he cannot explain the toe numbness. I also have severe fatigue and dizziness. Blood work is normal. MRI to be scheduled but I think the doc has made up his mind that it's because I'm fat and won't rush it.
I just want relief - I can't sleep due to my 'Alien'. It's effecting my job, I'm miserable. The pain and agony is off and on all day.
I am going to lose weight but I guess I just feel like it's more than that.
Any input would be appreciated.
