I feel my hands and legs tingling when  i sit/sleep for a few minutes in daytime as well as in sleeping during night time also.
Headache,eyes burning,irritation in 'scrotalsacs'as something is crawling in that when i sit or sleep,am unable to sleep.
I feel like as ants are crawling on my body everytime and severe irritation.

I'm not very knowledgable about all of it but I do sypathize with you.  I know the feeling that you are going through and it is very scary as well as irritating.  Have you been to the doctor?  If not, you should go as soon as you can.  Any time our bodies does something so abnormal it should not go un noticed.  If it is something serious the quicker you get started on a diagnosis the better off you'll be.

Thanks for listening.

You should see the doctor ASAP.  I would say blood tests are needed, and maybe vitamin or mineral deficiencies are causing the problems you have.  Low vitamin B can cause tingling and neurological symptoms

Wow this is my first visit here and i am amazed that i am not alone!  i never knew so many people were having the same problems.  I started about 7yrs ago with GI/bowel problems...then approx 4yrs ago started having problems with emptying my bladder (have to go to urologist every 3months now to have my urethra dilated) about the same time was having problems with migranes (migraines), facial pain-ENT decided i had a small polyp in my sinus cavity that needed removed.....it didnt help......back pain came out of no where in my lower back....had therapy, estimulation and then epidural......worked for awhile, now headaches returned, i have fallen 2x, back and neck pain.  Left side with numbness in my arm, face and leg- its the feeling as if i have been sitting on those limbs and just got up-but it feels like that all day!  Now im getting a tingling feeling in my right leg in my thigh.    I had 1 brain MRI showed 2 lesions (report says 2 small punctate foci of signal hyperintensity within the centrum semiovale billaterally) whatever that means- cervical MRI with 2disc protruding-going for epidural in neck next week--  on neurotin 900mg 3x/day - now my labs are screw up- dr says thryoid levels low, liver enzymes critical, now what? 2nd brain MRI done last week shows no  change.....guess that is good.  Any suggestions??  I live in the hampton roads area of virginia would LOVE a suggestion.  Did i mention i am only 40yrs old.

My husband has been getting progressively worse for many months now.  He has well over 24 lesions on his brain.  All of the symptoms of MS but they have ruled that out now.  They have ruled out a rare disorder called CADASIL.  His most recent MRI of his brain showed multiple white matter, high T2 signal foci-which suggests demyelinating disease.  Report said that lesions like these are seen in patients with migraines.  His largest lesion is on the right coronoa radiata and is 9 mm in size.  The report further states Multiple foci of white matter T2 hyperintensity on FLAIR and T 2 images bilateral frontal and parietal lobes.  My husband is only 45 and is declining rapidly.  He often exhibits stroke-like symptoms, left sided numbness face to toes, slurred speech, excruiating pain in the right side of his head, confusion, loss of balance, memory loss, weakness, spastisity and chronic infections of all kinds.  He has also lost the vision in one eye and sometimes cannot see well out of the other.  (these are just some of his major symtoms (symptoms))  We have seen many doctors and are headed to a neurosurgeon to hopefully help us get the answers and medical attention he needs.  He is in constant pain every day.  Does anyone out there have anything advice, info or suggestions/stories to share?  Please help----my handsome husband is sick!  from:  ***@****

Be careful about the epidural in next-made my husband much worse!  he broke his neck as a teen when diving in the ocean-now at age 45 it has caught up with him-degenerative disc disease-cervical problems-lesions on brain (see cleanitmeanit above)

Not a doctor but have been thru so much with my husband and the injections into the neck were not helpful at all-in fact the opposite.  Please consider a second opin before doing them.  Just trying to help. cleanitmeanit

Forgot to mention that steroids, if that is what they are injecting you with-can make certain situations much worse.  My husband cannot tolerate any steroids and he has over 24 lesions on his brain; protruding discs, etc.

To whom this may concern:

I am a forty year old woman who has been in extreme pain for many years.  Recently, the pain is unbearble ..the pain in the back of my head, neck and rt shoulder the doctors that I have seen over the years have blamed the pain ,on stress (this was a possiblity in my mind), depression (which I am not)I am moreso aggrevated that I know there is something wrong and the doctors can't seem to pinpoint the problem.  Other symptoms have been dizziness bending over and head starts to pound, chest pain, ear pain, blurred vision, eye-pain and facial pain,ab pain, flank pain, fatigue,numbness in left leg and in right arm and hand, general weakness, loss of voice over and over again.

I have seen many specialist cardiologist, gastronolgist,  internal medicine, chiropractors, head neck and back, optomologist, gynocologist, general practice, pysciatrist.  Diagnosis have been scolosis, bulding disk and protuding disk c5 and c6, IBS, tycardia, acid refux disease, anxiety disorder, endemetrosis.

My MRI I just had the doctor(general practice) said was all normal...I knew this was not right.  So I went and picked up the written report to discover the pain in my neck was real the buldging disk can cause pain but there was something else on this report significant peg-like cerebellum tonsils which of course I didn't know what this meant so I did a google search...My question is...Is this a sign that I should be concerned with and if so where should I go now?

I am a forty six year old female. I am very healthy as far as I know.  My problem is that my arms fell like they are going to sleep at the oddest times. sometimes when i'm just blow drying my hair or even when I'm driving. My arm won't even be bent that much. My legs go  to sleep at night sometimes. Is this something I need to have checked out?
                                                    Thank you Renee

I am have mild epilepsy since I was 20 and it has been in control since then. I am 50 years old now and I am still taking Dilantin 200 mg with Phenobarbitone 60 MG AT NIGHT.


I use a LOT OF COMPUTER for WORK. I experienced INITIALLY PAIN IN LOWER NECK, LEFT SIDE. MRI SHOWED MILD CERVICAL SPONDYLITIS.
Recently I FELT, BLURRED WITH ON EYE, FOLLOWED BY DIZZINESS, and imbalance. MRI, MRA results were NORMAL. ENT CHECK UP was also FINE.

OPHTHALMOGIST DISCOVERED WEaKNES IN EYE Sight FOR READING, WITH ONE LATER ADDUCTUR MUSCLE WEAK. PRESCRIBED GLASSES WITH PRISM ON ONE SIDE ( 5 DIAOPTER).

Q: SHOULD I CONTINUE TO TAKE DILANTIN OR CHANGE. OR REDUCE? I am worried about the occasional muscle pains and the imbalance and dizziness (which may be eye sight related).

This may sound a little far fetched but have heard about miraculous healing with intravenous vitamin C, need to find an alternative medicine doctor to apply, intravenous because the body will use so much more of the C. then orally, and they can use larger amounts, which immerse the cells in C. I've taken C for going on 40 years and never had a problem, so I wouldn't hesitate to try this method if I had to. Sherella

I have a mild bulge in c5-c6 with apinched nerve.  I have gone through a series of three epidurals with mixed results.  Pain is gone but I still have numbness/tingling in my right hand.  How long does this last and could there be permanent nerve damage?

Hello.  Do you or someone you know have lyme disease? I am writing a book about lyme disease entitled Sick? From a Tick? and would be honored if you would include your case history in my survey on www.sickfromatick.com.

Lyme Victims can use Sick? from a Tick? to:

Find accurate diagnostic tools for detecting lyme disease

Find safe and effective treatment plans for lyme disease

Review survey results collected from this web site from over 350 lyme victims. Data will be included regarding lyme victims source of exposure (ticks, other insects, lyme vaccines, organs or blood purchased in the marketplace, breast milk, and in-utero), percentages of lyme victims misdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Behavior Problems, Alzheimer's Disease, Lupus, Parkinson's disease, Mental Illness, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, Asthma and Blame the Patient/All in Your Head), the financial cost of lyme disease to lyme victims and society, success rates of numerous diagnostic tools used to evaluate the sick and the best treatment plan to use for lyme disease and its co-infections and much more.
