I have a friend who, about a month ago, started having strange symptoms. She says it starts with tingling in her arms and hands, her hands sometimes stiffen, she cannot open her eyes or communicate. She sometimes has pain radiating up her back and into her neck. Has been through MRI, spinal tap, numerous blood tests, but the hospital keeps telling her it is stress related. At the first onset, she was taking Phenhermine and HCG shots for weight loss. She is still having these "spells" two to three times per week. She remains incapacitated for periods ranging from 1 to 4 hours. Blood tests show low potassium upon her arrival at the ER.
