Hi Everyone! New to this community of sorts and want to pose a question I know has been asked similarly on some other threads.
For the past 3 months I have been experiencing some pretty significant neuro-like symptoms.
-burning pain around spine (neck and mid back) that last for days and is very painful
-muscle twitches below neck when resting
-muscle shakiness/quivering muscles around hips, arms and neck when muscle are brought back in towards the body
-lately left middle and ring finger stick together and both hands tremble when elevated
Like many others I've had both a spinal+brain MRI, CT scan, EMG/Nerve Conduction study and numerous blood tests to rule out other nerve or muscle related conditions. I don't appear to have a thyroid condition or have a vitamin deficiency (although my iron levels were pretty low). I even received a second opinion from a neuromuscular specialist who believes most of these symptoms are 'psychosomatic'. Even if this is true my symptoms continue to persist and make me feel quite anxious.
I am wondering if anyone who has had these symptoms has experienced relief... do these symptoms ever go away, or do your symptoms continue to persist without a known cause? How do you cope in your day to day? It has been very hard for me and although I have been 'cleared' of the more severe conditions (MS, ALS etc.) I continue to wonder if something's being missed here. I miss feeling the way I used to and pray that someday I will once again!
Would appreciate anyone's insight if they have suffered through the same symptoms, or a doctors take on what might be going on.
