Having a read through this Forum Last night I was rather alarmed at the sheer amount of people (felt like the majority) which had symptoms exactly as those MS causes, but after completing EMG, MRI, Lumbar Punctures they still haven’t been diagnosed with anything.
My symptoms as to date;
Painless Muscle twitching ( on and off last 6 years ). The twitching is constant in both feet now, and happens randoly throughout body.
Burning sensation in various parts of my body, and sensitive after touching/ scratch.
Miscellaneous cramps through legs, muscular pain throughout body. Worse in right arm and middle finger. Pain is increased or decreased depending on position of my arm and movement.
Felling of shaking but not actually shaking/ sometimes feeling of vibrating (most when waking up).
(All symptoms are worse when laying down)
I recently went to see a well regarded Nuro, even if you search this forum you will find nothing but good reviews on them. They did the usual neurological exam after hearing my symptoms. Strength, reflexes, eyes, felt muscles, checked for feeling.
They said I displayed no abnormalities, and they do not think I have any disease. In fact if I did I would be in a bad way by now, on top of that I am not the age for it (26) we all know age nothing to do with it. He said he thought I had BFS considering my mum complains of such muscle twitches etc. I do read BFS can cause all these symptoms, but how rare is that!!?
I requested that I still do all the testing required because I know you cannot just tell from physical exam even though they are a leading expert.
So I am off to do EMG and MRI of the Brian and spine, But I am extremely concerned that my symptoms will get worse and without any diagnosis I will not receive the proper treatment if I need it.
Thanks for listening.
