Symptoms worsening

The past few years I have had a few symptoms that I can no longer ignore.

The tingling numbness began in my pinky finger (left side) then moved its way to being the entire hand and arm (to elbow). The it began on the other hand the same way and is a problem I deal with everyday. For the past couple of days my thumb has really been difficult to ignore.
Occasionally, I also get this feeling on different spots of my face, & toes.

I have such a severe intense itch that flares up quite a bit on my legs. The itch feels like its "down to my bones." I end up with huge bruises and scars because I cannot scratch the itch away.

I also have occasional twitching/spasming. It will either be a full body ***k or a limb.

I'm not sure if these are from the same source. I've put these symptoms off for a long time, but I am becoming very concerned as the tingling/numbness is getting worse - quickly.

One more thing that I really don't know if it belongs here, but also for the past few years I have had to take Adderral to stay awake and function. It's not narcolepsy and those RX's don't work.

Thanks for your time

  • You need a good check-up. Thyroid panel, blood sugar, electrolytes and so on. Also remember that borderline results on thyroid tests could mean trouble there even tho the doctor says normal. Be sure to get a copy your results. You might also ask to see a neurologist. Good Luck, and keep us posted... Kiera
