I had a serious and intense surgery in 2007 on my neck. I had cervical stenosis with a paralyzing myelopathy. After a double fusion and 2 weeks of in-house therapy, I recovered well and have been doing well until Feb. 2012. My symptoms are mostly within both legs, where they began this time. Heaviness, weakness, pain (excrutiating!), pins and needles, electric like shocks, stabbing pains here and there in upper front thighs and yesterday I thought I was stung by a bee on outside of upper right thigh. Within the past 6 weeks, I have been having the tell tell signs of neck problems. Tingling hands, last 2 fingers on right hand are numbing, pain on right side of neck with a lot of cracking and popping, shoulder and mid back pain... I have not walked normally in a year. I have seen many doctors who referred to so many different specialist because all tests, imaging and bloodwork, have been NORMAL! My spine doc says my neck is not the problem and that if it was my neck, my legs would not be affcted. (This coming from the doc who saved me from permanent paralysis in 2007) I have NO diagnoses. I have an appointment in 2 weeks and going to beg my doc to please take a look at my neck again with contrast. (Last MRI was last November, no contrast) I KNOW the symptoms except for this undiagnosed problem with my legs. I filed for SSI/Disability last Sept. How in the world will I get it with NO DIAGNOSES???
*other symptoms: fascilations, (nerve jumping) all over but especially in thighs and right under each buttock. I feel "static electricity" from head to toe when I lay down before going to sleep at night. Without any warning, I feel as if I had just stepped on a nail with horrible pain in and under big toe! Hands and fingers cramp., blurred/double vision at times... the list goes on.
The 1st MRI I had of my spine was to rule out any tumors and MS. Thank goodness they were not present. Anyone else experiencing these symptoms or have before and know your Diagnoses??? I'm 45 years old. I don't know what else to do. Also, TIRED of taking medicines!
