Sunday morning, I woke up, once again unable to move my arms more than an inch off the bed. My arms felt like lead weights. After about 30 minutes of excruciating pain, I regained movement, but my fingers never quite recovered, that day. When I would try to click the button of my mouse, my finger would not move, but rather my elbow would shoot out to the side. My arms and fingers would twitch the duration of the day, sometimes in burning, rapid sessions.
Toward the evening, my left eye started to close, involuntarily. I would have to open my eye, just to have the eye snap back shut.
Concerned, I contacted my doctor's after-hours line. The doctor told me to go the E.R. to get checked. All they did at the E.R. is perform a CT scan of my head, looking for signs of a stroke. Of course, the test came up negative.
The E.R. doctor gave me a perscription for 5 Flexeril pills.
Muscle relaxers for symptoms that are obviously neurological in nature???
I'm still waiting for my referal appointment at the University of Michigan... hopefully they will be able to do something that makes sense to help me get my life back. I miss being me.
OH YEAH... I forgot to mention the latest in interesting nerve miscues. Today, while attempting to press a mouse button, instead of my fingers moving, my LEG twitched to the right. Has anybody else experienced such bizarre movements and nerve miscues? This is really beginning to make me feel like I've gone insane... ~X(
