I was directed here by one of the other members, and I was hoping maybe someone can help.
For about one year now, Ive had on and off symptoms, been to several doctors, many tests have been performed, and Im still getting these "episodes".
Generally they will start with extremly strong fatigue, heat intolerance(causes fatigue), cold intolerance(causes pains) I will get shooting pains, muscle cramps/ spasms, shooting eye pain, hand tremors, numbness in patches, and my newest symptom is weakness in my left arm/ hand and then my left leg. There are a few other symptoms but these ones all bother me the most with my daily activites. These symptoms creep up-- last a few solid weeks (the most ive had 9 weeks, the least 3), and then they slowly resolve.
About a week- a month after these symptoms started out last year, of the blue; my toe nails began having horizontal lines (I can find only minimal information on this; often it will say visit your doctor ASAP-- Ive been to the doctors a dozen times.) Ive read their related to either vitamin absorbtion or inflammitory diseases.
Ive currently had blood tests for glucose, thoyroid, b12, b2, iron, mono, lupus, rhuematoid arthitis, brain and cervial spine NON CONTRAST, stress test for fainting, heart monitors, evoked potentials, ekg, and a few others-- all of which have come back normal.
About a month ago I had the flu- during which I began having violent shooting leg pains and hip pains while I had a high fever. As soon as the fever reduced, I was pain free. During and after the flu i believe I had another "episode", I am only starting to feel slightly better with occasional leg weakness.
Ive stated on my other posts, I know these symptoms mimic other illnesses.. but my doctors now think I am depressed/ have anxiety-- which I strongly feel I do not have and I refuse to take antidepressants for something I dont feel I have. I dont want to sleep b/c of fatigue I want to get out, go to school and go out with friends. Now they come to visit me when I can barely move.
Help would be appreciated..
Or if anyone can steer me in the right direction..
