Starting in November, I noticed that when I ran my feet would go numb and feel like I was almost running on stumps. Then I started to have problems with my knees, feeling like they needed support, just when I was walking and the numbness and tingling started to occuring more frequently just walking from my car to my office. If I ran, or rode a bicycle, or walked in the mall, my feel would go numb and then my fingers would start to tingle as well.

I went to the doctor for it in March, and she ordered blood tests and everything came back normal.

In Mid-April, I went back to the doctor because my entire pelvic area was numb, not just when I walked or did something, active but all the time. And since April 14th, when it started, my feet have also lost much sensation. I don't have to be doing anything...it is a constant numbness.

I have had MRI's and they came back clean. I do have scoliosis, according to the chiropractor I just decided to start seeing because my doctor has failed to diagnose me. I am 29, very healthy and normally very active and eat VERY healthy. My doctor said I am having some sort of neuropathy and she has no idea what is causing it. I have been on Neurontin for week with no improvement.

Ugh. I have no clue what is really wrong with me and MS has been ruled out. Another note: I have Celiac Disease but I have not eaten anything (to my knowledge) with gluten in almost 4 years. What is my deal?:confused:
