Hello, I am new to the board. I had a groin/abdomen injury about 7 months ago. Tried Physical Therapy, Chiro and all diff types of Doctors before I was lead to a general surgeon for a possible hernia. I had Laproscopic Inguinal mesh hernia repair 3 months ago. The recovery was normal with little side effects. Then the injury seemed to resurface about 6 weeks later, which spiked my anxiety and nerves. Since then, i have been having reoccuring muscle spasms/tingling/numbness/burning sensations that started in hands and feet and have since grown to most of my extremities. The groin/abdomen injury seems to be getting better thru Chiro visits, stretching and light physical activity.
I thought I had finally beat this whole thing earlier in this week when i started to walk more, be more active and do rehab in a pool. I felt great! that was 4 days ago. Since then, the paresthesia has come back in full force in most of my body and some of it has become painful, albeit very briefly. I have had an MRI on my brain, all 3 parts of my spine, and pelvis and nothing abnormal shows. All of my blood tests came back normal for deficiencies and thyroid. I had an EMG two weeks ago and they couldnt find anything. I thought it might be due to stress but i was not stressed when my workouts were successful earlier this week. The paresthesia just came back all the sudden two days ago after i had a physical day around the office (tried to walk around alot and take breaks to get the blood flowing since i read this is good for nerve issues)
As of today, this is the worst the paresthesia has ever been and now my stress is back at it! I cant help it when my whole body is tingling and no doctor has been able to find what is wrong. Does anyone know what else i can do to try and remedy the situation or who else i can see? Ive already seen a Neurologist, who ordered the MRIs and the EMG test and he couldnt help me. I dont have any other symptoms like fatigue/headache/flu like symptoms. I sleep decent but not great.
What could this be? Its starting to scare me to death and the stress makes it worse. I need help!!
