Hi all,

I am a new comer to the board and have no pace to turn at this point.

I am sorry, but I will try to keep this as short as possible. :(

Back in October, I had what I thought was a bad cold......then, I started feeling tingling in the arch of my right foot...then over the days I noticed the ball of the same foot hurt as I walked, then began limping. I would also get tinlging in the feet that would spread up the lower legs to about the knee at times. I would wake up some night with a leg numb from the knee down...and some night with a knee locked and painful, both would clear quickly though.

I would get chills, unable to tolerate cold weather, felt nauseous a lot, loss of apetite and as a result lost about 20 lbs since October. Started having floaters in my right eye, and some aches in the right eye. Some nights my right foot would hurt soooo bad I could not sleep. Some nights I would feel like my blood was bubbling and I would feel shaky and weak. I would get odd muscle trembles and tremors. My hands and feet would get ice cold at times!

After about two weeks or so...some of the symptoms started to get better but the feet were still bad...some days were great..walking, exercising...felt good...other days I would limp around in pain. I also noticed trouble swallowing during most of this time.
Some times I had frequent urination.

I saw plenty of doctors and specialits to not avail. We looked for everything, Lyme, MS, Celiac, Ankylosing Spondylitis, you name it! I am even seeing a podiatrist in case this is anxiety from bad feet!

Along with this came depression and anxiety.......

Still no relief and still seeing doctors!

Still, to this day..after seeing a chiropractor (thinking it may be pinched nerves) I still limp around, pain in my right foot, tingling in both, feel nauseous some days, shaky, trouble swallowing on some, floaters in my eyes, once in a while, the right hand still gets cold as do feet and numb feeling at times.

You name the doctor..I have seem them with the exception of an endocrinologist and vascular specialist.

They found an abnormal protein band and now I am seeing an oncologist. Ugh!

I can't seem to gain back my weight either and workling out makes me shaky and sometimes sick. Always seems worse as the day goes on and I am best when relaxing and/or sleeping.

Any thoughts? I can't stand it any more.

Thanks!
Rich
