Hi i am a 22 y/o female. i have a medical background... i am in good health (don't feel ill, normal cbc's). i am suffering from these really annoying symptoms:
*it started as very uncomfortable pins and needles suddenly in my right leg sept 07 as i was falling asleep, i was going to ignore it, but my husband told me to go to the dr. i went and got a ct-normal, ekg-normal. i have gotten used to it now (over a year), but it still feels that way if i lie on my right side... even my right arm and face start to feel tingly. i would contribute this to anxiety, but it is only on one side.
*a few of the lymph nodes only on the right side of my neck swell up and down from time to time, but always the same ones, for over a year.i also have a really hard one on the right side that is about the size of a quarter-not painful, but not increasing in size... the dr did not seem to worry about this at all.
*recently, i started to get head jerks when i was relaxed... very small, but still very noticable... i ignored it and then later i started to get these all over, my ankle would flex... elbow, shoulder, my whole torso would ***k over sometimes... it feels similar to someone testing for reflexes.
i ran this by my dr, and she seemed concerned and ordered a mri of the brain with contrast... to see if there are any ms lesions or anything.. but the results were what the nurse said, "mild sinus disease." i was prescribed flonase... however she does not think that this is causing my other symptoms and refered me to a neurologist, whom i haven't seen yet. i regularly work out and have no muscle weakness.
other symptoms include facial tremors (eye, cheek, chin), dry mouth, anxiety (after symptoms began), i also have a mild scoliosis that doesn't affect me.
Please help.
p.s. before last sept (07) i was perfectly normal, i was never a hypochondriac, now i feel like i am... but i truly feel these symptoms
