Hello all,

I'm a 43 yo active duty MSgt in the US Air Force. In September, I began having numbness and tingling in my right hand, but has progressed bi-laterally throughtout all areas of my body. I've had a glucose tolerance test, 24 hr urine collection, 2 CT scans, and every blood test imaginable. I've seen 1 neurologist who exhausted all testing ideas, and I'm now being sent to the Oregon nerve center next month for extensive testing. I have tingling, burning, and some lightheadedness. Anyone out there have anything similar?

It's also noteworthy to disclose I took 30 tablets of progystamine bromide (nerve agent pre-treatment pills) during the 1st Gulf War. They also gave me an experimental Anthrax shot as well.

Anyone know anything about these symptoms and possible causes other than the odd meds?
