My history is an abnormal MRI in May 2014 (lower pons) following tingling/pins & needles in right leg (fleeting not permanent). Re scan in November was normal but between then developed tinnitus, very rumbling guts (citalopram??), slight tight feeling on right tricep, first thing in the morning tightness in right knee/shin (varicoise vein op July 2014 ??) but consultant said all ok
Since then have had
little buzzing sensations (last < 1 second) in right foot, ankle
further tightness of right tricep/shoulder. Also occasionally wake up with indentation type marks on right upper arm & shoulder - have told GPs who do not seem concerned, find it hard to believe it is not linked to my arm - I think it might be nerves and therefore worried by pons lesion has spread to my neck or spine
continued rumbling guts on and off, seems to be better now I’ve reduced the citalopram
waking up at night for bathroom (once may 3-4 times per week)
pins and needles in fingers (sometimes one hand, sometimes both) but goes after movement. have bumps that maybe look like Ganglion cysts not sure of these could cause it. GP did a basic test for Carpal tunnel and did not think it was that.
I am currently undergoing blood tests and wanted my GP to start with a fresh sheet of paper was the first referral was made on the cuff without much general clinical involvement (no other tests)
In short I have a lot going on, think the citalopram and general anxiety have not helped but cannot help feeling something is wrong - the buzzing, finger pins and needles and right arm tightness are the most worrying not in terms of impact but what they might mean. Could i even be looking at something like a bulging disc with the problems all on one side of my body ? I know these things are a nightmare to diagnose and get a grip on but any insights appreciated !
