Hi there, I'm hoping to meet people who may have almost identical issues as I am having. I have come across a few so created an account in hopes of being able to navigate through here and post in the right spot. So I'll start with here. I am a 38 year old woman who other than endometriosis, has or HAD no other significant health issues. And this brings me to today. So a few months ago I was sitting at work when I felt a piercing pain go down from my right shoulder to my forearm. I thought it was bizarre but let it go. As weeks progressed it happened more and more frequently. Then my left leg started getting a bit of sharp pains. The back and the front, and my calf muscle was very tight for hours. This would happen a lot. I went to the hospital thinking maybe I had a blood clot. No blood clot. So the symptoms stayed as they were for another week or two and then from out of nowhere I had the most Intense and painful neck pains I've ever experienced. It was both in the back and front on both sides. It was into my shoulders and high back. It was like this for about 8 days. I was bawling all the time, couldn't even have anythibg touching it. I slept sitting up and then didn't sleep at all for three days straight Cuz it was so painful. Then it started lessening (I also started physiothetapy in desperation) and next thing I know, My legs get worse. The piercing pains are in both legs, both front and back. The tops of my feet feel achy and I'm getting TONS of muscle twitches, especially in my calves but also my thighs. My newest symptoms which come and go, I wake up feeling like someone drop kicked me in the right thigh, sometimes a bit in the left thigh too. It's closer to my hip than my knees, and my hip bones really hurt too. I've also had the Inside of my knees hurt too. I feel crazy pins and needles in my calves, as well as what I can only describe as a vibrating or buzzing or humming feeling in the calves. I also have burning patches in my shoulders, mostly the right where the original piercing pain began. I also now get a bit of numbness in the middle of my back. And the last two days I've had extreme dizziness. Mind you I did get my blood pressure taken a few days ago and it was pretty low, 95/65. I do go for an MRI of my spine on the 31st of May. On February 28th I had gotten into a VERY mild car accident, my car was trying to go straight on a turn (it was pure ice), and at the last minute it went into the turn and I ended up side swiping a car. My physio thinks it's my discs. But in Both the neck and lower back???? I haven't come across too many profiles with that issue???! PLS someone tell me that they've had very similar issues with both the neck and leg involved, and had it attributed to disks and not MS (my worst fear). Help!!
