Hi... I'm new to the board. I found it while searching some more for whatever it is that is wrong with me. If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate them.

I am 28 years old, female, 3 children, and in pretty good health. I have had 3 strange 'episodes' within the past year and a half. Each of these lasts for around 1-2 months. They have been a year apart and 3 months apart. My symptoms at the time are: numbness and tingling in arms and legs... it seems to start at my fingers and toes and work its way up, feet and hands fall asleep very easy, joint pain... fingers, toes, wrists, ankles, knees, elbows, hips, extreme fatigue, shooting pains down my spine, back ache, and neck pain.

Now, I may be forgetting a few... there seems to be so many symptoms. I also have these strange 'shocks' in my head. My doctor has yet to figure out why anyone would have them and has even told me that it is not possible. These electrical 'shocks' only last for a second. They seem to be easily brought on by fast eye movement. These happen quite frequently, not just during an 'episode'.

I have had an MRI on my upper and lower spine and an EMG on my arms along with much bloodwork for arthritis... all negative. There is nothing abnormal at the time when these 'episodes' begin... no extra stress, illness, etc.

I have an appointment with a neurologist, but not until June. The pain gets really bad and it gets to the point where I am limping around. Different positions seem to make my feet and hands fall asleep faster. There is the 'heavy' asleep and 'pins & needles'. It is also much worse in the morning or after sitting still for a long period... like my body freezes up.

Any help?!?!
