My name's Jeff, I need an expert's opinion on my situation....
7 months ago, back in December 2009, I started to get intense burning pain in my Left shoulder blade....a couple of weeks later it spread to the right shoulder blade as well.....in January it got alot less intense...but spread around to the front across the very top of my stomach....It was annoying but didn't really interrupt my daily activities...my family doctor and I thought it might be stomach related....and so early in the year I had a lot of blood work done, an ultrasound and CT of my abdomen...A CT on my lungs...stool tests...and an upper GI Endoscopy...All were completely normal.

Then at the end of May, I caught a sore throat from my girlfriend....the glands in my neck swelled up...I had a cough and runny nose....a couple days later that flu/cold started to subside...but my legs started tingling and I started to get burning around my eyelids...the burning around my eyes left them sore and red...the tingling in my legs turned to burning and weakness and seemed to get more intense by the day....I also got tingling in my cheekbones and the back of my head....by the middle of June my legs were so weak from the burning and weakness that i could barely stand...I also had burning in my arms but to a lesser extent....I called an ambulance and was admitted to my local hospital...they did an MRI on my brain and spine which came back normal...and an EMG which was also normal.....they didn't do a Spinal Tap (not sure why not)....I was released from hospital still very weak without answers and told to follow up with a Neurologist......

What does this sound like? Does it sound like this is all related to my initial problems with my back and upper abdomen? Or did the flu spawn something new?? What should I do next?

Thanks in Advance.....
