Last March i had a burning sensation that seemed to come and go in both of my legs. 2 weeks later i was on holiday and we drove for 8 /9 hours. My feet felt numb like when you sit on them and they feel "dead". This soon spread up my legs and right up to may waist. A week later i arrived back home and went to my doctors who sent me to hospital. It had then spread to my fingers of both hands but a little better in my legs. They said there's nothing wrong and did a chest xray! and a few ECG and loads of blood tests and found nothing, then i had an MRI scan and still nothing. Nearly a year on my fingers are still numb and i get occasional pins and needle feelings in my left shoulder. I am very worried but my doctor says its fine.
