Right, not long ago my friends mother died of spinal cancer. Over the past week or two I've started to notice that I have similar symptoms to her. I'm almost always drowsy, barely ever alert. I find that my arms and legs always ache, as does my neck, in fact I can rarely muster the energy to raise my arm above my head. I can't walk in a straight line as I used to, and I'm finding I'm being more clumsy than usual in terms of coordination. I also have no appetite, and after eating even a small amount, I feel sick. I also seem to be unable to focus a lot of the time.
My back has a tender area on it, which I've only recently discovered, it's 2/3 of the way down from my neck, from the center of my spine just to the left of it. It makes my back arch when I touch it, as though I'm being tickled. Following that I get tingling feelings across my back, and when I walk I get the same tingling feelings shooting down my legs often followed by hot flushes in my legs. I also find that after exercise involving my legs and feet, I can't move my left foot upwards.
Sounds to me this is a bit overreacting. Is it "Spine Cancer?" Doubt it. Spine Cancer is NOT a common cancer in the first place and then given your age......highly doubt you are dealing with any cancer.
I am not sure if this is related to your diet or physical condition or your lifestyle......I would be more apt to believe your complaints are related to those things.
