last week I was getting ready for work, the right leg started feeling strange, I was unable to control the movement, the foot started to drag a bit. This happened after migraine headaches for 5 days in a row. I took Imitrex and I was concerned it could be a stroke, I had my son take me to hospital. They treated as a stroke, admitted me to hospital - did brain MRI, spinal MRI, tests, bloodwork, another spinal MRI, spinal tap, and I was sent home with no answers two days later. I ended up returning to ER two days later, the shaking and numbness started in left leg - now have it in both legs.

I still have no answers, I am using a walker to get around and pain in my lower back is excruciating, feels like muscle spasms.
Neurologist wants to do nerve testing however, said it would be today when I was released from hospital a second time. I still haven't heard from doctor, called left voicemail (my husband and I) and I am supposed to go back to work on Monday - I can't drive, can't stay awake for very long, in pain and I'm supposed to return to work?
