I am a 44 y/o female. For the past 8 years I have developed demyelinating neuropathy of my extremities (arms and legs), double vision, vertigo, nystagmus, hammer toes, cramps (extremities), trigeminal neuralgia, muscle pain and tenderness. MRI, MRV, MRA of my brain showed 2 congenital arteriovenous malformations. A battery of blood tests were done and there were no evidence of any collagen disease. My platelets were 900,000. bone marrow biopsy was performed and ended with a Dx of essential thrombocytosis. Sed rate is always between 40 and 45. There is moderate to severe muscle atrophy of legs, hands and arms. Its getting harder for me to walk and do my ADL'S. I was diagnosed fibromyalgia, essential thrombocytosis and a R/O of Charcot-Marie-Toot Disease. I think that a wrong diagnosis was given. I need to know what is causing all these symptoms.
