I have started a pain diary and I hoped someone could help figure out what's happening to my body:

2.5 wks ago-pins & needles in right hand & foot.

2 wks ago-pins & needles in both hands/feet, nausea, lower back pain

1.5 wks ago-pins & needles still, fatigue, right shoulder blade pain

1 wk ago-pins & needles still, fatigue, depression, severe back pain

.5 wk ago-pins & needles still, fatigue, depression, severe pain on right side of back, right knee pain, sharp pain on top of the head, nausea

Currently-pins & needles, brain fogginess, loss of appetite, nausea, back pain, right arm severely heavy, a knowing that something is really not right.

Test I've had done: Blood, urine, MRI brain & neck, ct scan, shoulder xray

Please help???

Going for a massage tonight and have a neurologist appt. tomorrow morning.

In the midst of all this I have had a U.T.I. being treated with Keflex & low potassium but have had that re checked and it's normal now.

  • Are you by chance taking an antidepressant? The reason I ask is that they can cause all kinds of paresthesia symptoms. Sometimes just changing the dose or quiting them all together can cause these symptoms. Sorry your struggling.
