Hello all, it's amazing reading through these boards just how many people are in the same boat. Unnatural symptoms, yet a diagnosis is not forthcoming :-/ It's not only extremely frustrating, it's depressing! I started getting weird symptoms about 10 years ago. It started with tingling/pins and needles in my left arm. I then got chest pains. Then came the pins and needles/numbness in both left arm and left leg. Then came the muscle weakness. Then came the tickly/itchy muscles in both legs/arms. Then came the fatigue. Then came the headaches. Then came the visual disturbances. Apparently, there's nothing wrong with me!! I really don't think it's normal to feel about 90yrs old when I'm only 38! I've had MRI's, full blood check and they came back normal. I went to my GP again recently as I had the visual disturbance and my head feels "swimmy". So much so, I don't feel confident enough to drive. Another problem I get fairly regularly is bladder problems and really bad lower back ache (which I presume is my kidneys). My GP didn't seem overly concerned about that but took my urine sample anyway - still waiting the results of that. My GP is once again referring me to a neurologist. I was previously prescribed amitriptilyne for the pain. Any ideas would be most welcome!! It's quite alarming just how many people have the same symptoms that aren't being diagnosed. Some vindication would be a blessing wouldn't it?!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
