my severe symptoms started over a year ago. i have all over body pain. muscle twitches in arms and legs (including toes). my feet would feel like they were cramping up, then it would slowly move up my legs, passed my knees and into my hips. looked like i had foot drop, i couldn't walk or stand. i was completely numb from the waist down. this would last from a few hours to a few days. it has happened about 8 or nine times over the past year, and nothing seems to be a trigger for it. i have severe back pain, ranging from the base of my neck all the way down to the bottom of my spine, along with severe migraines. i also can't lift my hands above my head while i am standing. i have had an mri of my lumber region, ct of my brain, and NO ONE went over either with me at the hospital and thy were done in January the first ortho said i had 2 ruptured discs and needed immediate back surgery. something told me to get a second opinion, so i took his prescription for PT and did just that. my physical therapist said that my discs weren't ruptured but bulging, and shouldn't be causing me all of my pain. my second ortho said not even bulging, but i did have degenerative disc disease, and again it shouldn't be causing all of my pain. and my 3rd ortho said he is in the same boat with ortho number 2 and thinks it could be fibro, but wants me to see a neurologist. they have tried cymbalta but did nothing but made me feel worse than i already did. now they have me on lyrica, and i still see no differencce in pain or headaches easing off. i haven't had any occurrence of the "drop foot" episodes in almost 6 months. i have noticed an increased pain in my lower left abdomen region. my dr said she is going to get an ultrasound or scan of my belly to make sure it isn't a fibroid tumor..??i am still waiting on my neuro apt. (been over a month) . my confusion is getting worse, memory from moment to moment is horrible. i looked at my scan of my brain and i saw 3 white distinct spots that since no one has discussed my scan with me i have NO CLUE what they could be...does ANYONE have any insight as to what could be going on??? i am a 33 yr old female. the only thing i have ever been diagnosed with is cysts on my right ovary, back in about '96.
