During the past year I first noticed my legs felt unsteady and at times a slight feeling of heavyness, as time went on I felt like my legs were two stumps and was very difficult to climb stairs. I am only 130 lbs and in good physical condition. Shortly after the heavy legs started, I felt tingling and then burning in my legs. This got progressively worse in time and now this pins and needles are not only in my legs but my arms and head, back. The burning is more regular in my legs. I have been to a doctor that gave me a B12 shot but have had little to no change in my condition, I went for a brain scan which showed slight leasions but nothing obvious to be concerned about. I do feel increasingly tired than normal. I walk guite a lot for at least an hour a day if possible, this does not worsen this condition as a matter of fact it feels better when I walk instead of sitting. I have had an injury on my tail bone when I was young but my doctor told me the problem would be more localized not all over my body as I have. I have been at a few tests but the doctor is ordering a few tests at a time instead of a total analysis. She hasn't even ordered a urine test for me yet or a test for diabetis. I am not sleeping well now with this condition bothering me all night. I need some answers or suggestions please. When the doctor says call me in a month for another B12 shot, my illness progression needs to be delt with now. I have read quite a bit on different topics but as you know, you could find yourself having all the symtoms in each piece of literature you read. I have found the B12 deficiency quite interesting, I did take a lot of Tetracyline when I was younger and was on the pill for approx 14 years. I have adult acne.
