dysesthesia

For 4 months I have been living with a vibration/burning/electric shock feeling in my entire body ( all limbs, torso, face, etc...). It is a constant feeling. I feel it when I wake up in the morning and it progressively gets worse as the day advances. It goes from being unpleasant to being difficult to bear. I do not have loss of feeling nor numbness. This feeling never leaves my bodu. Some days it is better than others, but it never goes away.I experienced this 5 years ago when I had Cushing's disease. This dysesthesia appeared with the disease and left my body 9 months later. During the Cushing's period, the dysesthesia pain was intensified with sound, light and very mild situations of stress (i.e my heart beating, the furnace sound). After 4 months of testing my endocrinologists have decided that it is not recurrent Cushing's.I do not present symptoms of Cushing's.My family doctor says she can not help me. Should I be refferred to a neurologist?

I think a good neuro or a good rheumy would be a good starting place.

Has your doctors done any blood panels on you?

Hi Claire,

Welcome to the MS forum.  I'm sorry that I can't be of much help with Cushings, but I 2nd Slightlybroken when she suggests a neuro or rheumy.

If it were me, I'd put together a couple questions for the Dr. 1st one being what has been tested so far and what are your next steps to find out what this is.

Thanks for joining us!
