I have had strange symtoms for a long time now, back and forth to GP, but never a concrete answer. Started with pins and needles in lower legs during my late 20’s and which has continued off and on until present day (these days reaches tigh are too) .I have also had numb areas on feet, which have gradually improved, pain and tightness in feet when kneeling which i could only endure for a few seconds before having to change position. Two distinct episodes of dizziness and balance problems lasting weeks, crawling and pricking sensations under skin. Blackouts in one eye, but only lasting minutes. Lots of cramps, legs mostly, but also hands, mostly at night. Chronic deep pain in buttocks and pain in base of spine. Not sure if any of this is related…Plus congnitive problems, especially short term memory, concentration, and learning new things.
Have seen one consultant who made me feel like I was wasting his time, I almost feel silly asking for second opinion but also feel like I know something is not right!!
I am 53 yrs old and have swept so much under the carpet for so long thinking ‘oh well, its just the way I am’, and I honestly think thats a big part of why I’m not being taken seriously…
Any ideas would be appreciated!
