Hi everyone,

I have had stiff, sore shoulders my whole life and have just starting working with an oseteopath and have great hope for some relief there.

But recently I have been having numbness and tingling in my right face (2 months), and also now, for the past 4 days, my left side is numb - especially my leg, but it also extends up to about the middle of my rib cage. Often my skin is very painful to touch with my bare hands (from my hip up through my ribs) but it is not painful if I touch my side through my clothes. Very strange. Doctors want to call it anxiety, I am not sure why because I have absolutely no anxiety in general (except perhaps being upset about this numbness!) but I have demanded an MRI - but that could take anywhere from 60 - 120 days.

Just looking for other people who have experienced something similar, or if anyone else want to vent about the wait times for MRIs!!

    Doctors love axiety, fibro, and other disorders that cannot be proven. Treat what is suggests but if it persists seek answers
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
