Dead leg?

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone else suffers from their leg or any limb going into paralysis. This started with me around xmas, I woke up one morning only to find that I couldn't move my right leg, it had no feeling or any sensation and lasted ten minutes, there was no gradual return of movement just back to normal. Normal for me is pain and my knee gives way regularly. Afterwards my lower back pain was about an 8 and I had a headache which turned into a migraine. So does anyone else have this experience?

Hi my left foot has done this twice now. Know feeling in it someone caught me the first time. Second lucky for me there was a post to hold on or I would of fallen. It just happens out the blue. Seems new symptoms just turn up. Oh the joys we have to suffer. Take care Linda x

Yes lots of odd joys, for quite a while I felt my mind was gone! Strange how knowing others are suffering similar makes me feel better, even though I would wish anyone pains like these.

Hi there yes have experienced where knee seems to lock or leg gives way but I think with fibro pain a lot of mine is down to this , I would differently get checked with gp as you are saying about having migraine as well , best to be on the safe side. It might help if you lock your posts as members tend to respond more when a post is locked as can then only be seen by our forum and not out to other engines on the internet also giving more privacy too. . Take care xxx

I did go to go today and she is referring me to a neurologist as she is unsure why said it could be a complex migraine but as it has happened a few times it needs to be checked out. Thanks.

Can you walk, my left heel is so painful and combined with the right its an effort to stand but when I get moving I can cope.

i'm in a similar position as cromedome ,its daily i get these symptoms, id advise getting your gp to get appointments with both neurology and rhumetology, as they would be the people to look into this for you

I understand the wanting to stand, I also try to keep on my feet as I know if I sit down getting up again is agony.

I hope you find some comfort this weekend x
