I need advice. Since mid December I have been experiencing strange symptoms. The first was a pointing sensation in my face that left it numb. After that I experience vibrations in my head and a zapping sensation around my body. I did some blood work that revealed I had a low b12 an elevated ck of close to 900. At the time I was suffering from the flu. I later began feeling numbness in hands and arms, abdominal pain, ear pain, eye pain and tinnitus. I eventually did some other tests were my ck had went back to normal and an emg on my arms that revealed no problems. After going temporary deaf one night I began to do some more tests which revealed some inflammation within my body during some blood work. I had another emg and the tech noted that everything was fine except for some electrophysiological evidence of an early motor nueron disease only in the needle examination. At the time I was exercising twice a day and I experience no muscle weakness or any fatigue. I had preciously been battling with anxiety issues and literally two hours after I was told I may have als I began feeling the symptoms. I am 22 years old and I am wondering could my intensive exercise effect my emg. The tech noted that not all of my muscles were effected and I had an emg two months prior that was normal. Please help.
Low vitamin B 12 can cause peripheral neuropathy which in itself can cause abnormal EMG. Other possibilities are diabetes, low thyroid function, lupus, Lyme’s. Get tested for these. Hope this helps. Take care!
