I'm new to site so not sure if I am in correct place,
I was admitted to hospital a month ago with suspected Cauda Equina, i was discharged after 8 days still none the wiser as to what i am suffering with, after 2 mri's and 2 ct scans they still can't seemt o figure out what is going on (which is frustrating).
Since i came out of hospital the pains i was having have subsided but i do get pain in coccyxx like a shooting pain which when occurs i cannot move, i have this awful fuzziness at the top of my spine to the left just below my neck i also have this sensation in my coccyxx area too.
I came out of hospital with Gabapentin which i take three times a day, when i first was discharged from hospital i was on 2x500mg co-codamol four times a day, 1x50mg diclofenic four times a day and gabapentin 1x500mg 3times a day, i have reduce the co codamol now to one four times a day and a diclofenic as and when i need to.
When i go anywhere near an air con blower I get a sharp pain through the upper fuzzy area on my back (feels like i hae a whole there) right through my back and body. If a breeze blows past and my back if exposed or i have thin clothing on the same feeling happens like the space is hollow. I get ichtiness in my ankle and pins and needles a lot more than i ever did before, i had an episode where my right foot swelled up and it was white and cold, it hasn't happened again that was just 1 occurance but thought might be relevant.
I am still waiting for the specialist to get back to me and i am close to tears most days because of the feeling but also the frustration of not knowing what is causing this.
I forgot to mention whilst in hospital the also looked for signs of MS but didnt mention this to me i only found this out when my GP told me it was on my discharge notes.
If anyone has any ideas of what me be causing these symptoms i would be very graeful to hear them, I am getting desperate now and not being able to go to work is really starting to get to me.
Regards and Thanks (in advance)
