A year ago, my wife was sweating 2-3 nights straight and one morning after sharply turning left she had sharp pain in the neck. Having such issues before myself, I thought it would go away but no. In a month the pain became severe and calmed down with ibuprofen for few days. X ray showed nothing. Next 7 months pain was numb around 2-3 of 10 but when stress or no sleep came up increased. 2 months ago one morning her hand joints hurt and were swallen. Same happened with legs in couple of days as well as eye. Mostly on right side for all. All symptoms pointed to autoimmune desease. Went to rheumatologist and she was very unhappy when Avise CTD restls came negative for rhematoid and lupus saying she can't help. But back on drawing board. Had MRI done shoeing minor bulging of 3-4 and 5-6. Forming stenosis, but not alarming based on the report. Waiting on Orthopedic appt. Met with unconventional doctor and she said lymes. But tonight after putting a lot of pressure on her neck, she felt tingling on Left leg between knee and ankle. Its a first and I don't know if this does mean some pintched nerve even though the Mri didn't show any. Losing hope here and no indication of cause. Changed diet to paleo but no much luck. Any ideas? Trying to figure this out before the pain to become severe.
Thank you in advance!
