My mom is 55 years old.
Symptoms since December 2009:
Pins and needles felling down the back of both legs. (sitting is the worst, laying better but never goes away)
Hot water feels like the skin is coming off - cold water is fine
Weight loss 20+ lbs in 3 months
Generalized Adenopathy (lymph node inflammation)
Blurred Vision within the last week (most when looking at small print)
Low sodium levels
Orthostatic hypotension (resolved w/treatment)
CT showed the adenopathy
Lumbar puncture negative
Biopsy of axillary lymph nodes - negative for lymphoma
Nothing makes it better. She was in the hospital for a week and a half and is getting progressively worse. They sent her home with no diagnosis (except DEPRESSION!). Could she have an infection from a sick animal or some rare thing?
