Hello to all of you! My name is Geneva, aka Gege. I started having numbness, tingling, & crawling senations in both of my hands, face (starting at my chin) slowly moving up my arms & up my face up to my eyebrows. This was November 19th 2012. Seen a neurologist on the 26th. Had blood work done, MRI (no contrast) MRA of neck, EMG/NCS of left arm. Everything came back normal. Since the 26th my sensations have changed, they are isolated to certian areas of my arms & face, but no longer consume the entire limb. I do have pain that runs up & down my left arm. I have taken Neurontin (gabapentin) for over 1 year for that. Never before have I had these sensations in my right arm or face. It was only my left. Now I have these sensations in my feet & ankles. Muscle twitching, tremors. Sometimes I feel like I'm shivering (like I was cold, but feel warm), other times it happens when I try to press down on the gas/brake pedal. Left arm & hand is weak. Today I spoke with a lady from my Dr.'s office who told me that my Dr. has DX me with neuropathy. My appointment with him is on the 31st of this month. My question is, How could he come to this conclussion with these normal results? Should I request something else? Should I find a new Dr.? He has ruled out everything in his "specialty". But has not tested or ruled other neurological disorders. I'm kinda lost. Just need advice.
Thank You, Gege
