Hi Everyone,

I am an 32 year old female living in Manchester UK, About 4 years ago i started having pins and needles in my feet and legs, which gradually has spreaded all over my body, now i seem to get it pretty much all over, however its concentrated in my legs arms hands and feet.

I also have

muscle twitches
burning sensation in my limbs(pins and needles and burning is really bad at night, for this i have been given Lyrica Pregoblin)
sometimes a sensation of cold water being poured over my head and face.
really sharp pointy needle like pain behind my eye, into my ear, and the side of my face which travels down to my throat and chest and shoulder, its so intense that i sometimes think killing myself would be a better option than to go through this. (I suspect and have been told it might be Trigimenal Nueralgia)
Bladder frequency
I went through a phase when i also had constant flickering of the eye, muscle around my mouth kept moving and i felt my facial muscles were out of control, this comes and goes.
My bladder problem is much worse before and after my period.
I should also mention that i have a few established problems like Underactive thyroid for which i take 150mg thyroxien everyday.
Polycystic ovarian synderome
Sickle cell trate( its not dangerous i just have a trate gene)
I was once told i have impaired glucose in tolerance but apparently i dont have that anymore!
I also have Rhinitis nasal problem sometimes.
I thought i should mention everything, as i am desperate for a diagnosis and doctors dont seem to be helping much. Please help me, and bless you all who are going through this or any other health problem and i hope you a speedy recovery.

Many thanks.
