I'm new here so firstly hello , secondly I'd like some help as I have been having lots of problems since april 2013 and I'm kinda getting fed up at the moment and ill explain a little more.
It started off that I have having pins and needles in my hand and shorting pains go down my arm, I had a burning sensation in my armpit, and back ache so went to doctors who sent me for MRIs. All this time I was limping, couple of weeks later after going for a walk round the nec, I had really bad back ache and sat down went to get up and my legs were so weak pain was so intensive, I just cried as I tried to walk to the car, got to the car to find I could not lift legs or stand up, I needed help, my husband came home and with his support I was able to foot shuffle back in to the house. This cleared up after about 5 days it was like legs got stronger every day. It then happened about two weeks later same thing again I start to do normal life things like any normal person and then my legs go again. This is now down to a 2/6day cycle.6 days after I have come off crutches it happens again, I get crampy muscle squeezing pains in the top of my legs down to my knees.
I get a shooting pain down leg and and then it gives way, I also get a lot of pain behind knees.
It's is not my only symptoms,
I get brain freeze, I have been known to put my arm under the running water instead of the kettle, I also start have a convo and forget all line of words, I also get words mixed up like get the milk out of oven and other mad stuff.
I'm lucky if I get to sleep before midnight then when I do get to sleep if I'm not tossing and turning, I do have a nice sleep but then can't get up in the morning, feel tired again within the hour feel worn out. Takes me two days to clean house now as I have to rest between most jobs.
See brain freeze can't remember what other symptoms I get lol. I get burning feelings in my feet or they go ice ice cold.
I have a vit d deficiency and I have low iron. Love chewing ice.
I'm on tramadol, naproxen and I am on 40mg of amatriplyn, nothing seems to easy the pain when it comes. I am starting to feel useless.
Sorry to have rambled on but I'm say on sofa as legs are gone again and am trying to find answers and better ways to help me xx
