Me: 31 M, 6 ft 3, 185 lbs. Fit/in-shape
About two months ago I had a kind of "cold" nerve pain in the middle back area, just to the left of the spine. Chiropractors didn't seem to help. I made the mistake of going to a "new one" two days before St Patrick's Day. On St Pat's day, I started noticing that the pain seem to be spreading. I started getting nerve tingling all down the left side of my body. Some in the arm, but mainly in the leg/abdomen. My Doctor has sent me to PT for the month and I'm taking Meloxicam in the AM and a muscle relaxer at night.
The back issues seem to be constantly changing. Last week into this week it's like most of my back has nerve tingles, and some tingles in the back of my head now too. I also get nerve tingles in my chest and ribs area. I went to the ER a few times, thinking I was having a heart problem, but they didn't find any indication of heart trouble.
My Doctor ordered nine blood tests, and found no HIV or blood sugar issues etc. To my dismay, she refuses to x-ray or image it until I complete PT and am still experiencing issues. I have an EMG scheduled for later this month.
I'm very worried. I have health anxiety anyway, so this has been very difficult.
I've been having far fewer leg tingles as of late, but the back of head tingling and left chest/rib/abdomen tingling freaks me out. From the middle back down to my waist there is some tingling if I get up from a chair. It seems I have some pain in the low left kind of top of butt area too.
I am usually in the gym five days a week, now I can barely do one arm workout a week.
I haven't been throwing up or having any bathroom, vision, or sexual problems. I do occasionally feel a bit warm when I lay down, but I actually don't own anything to take my temperature with.
I'm so worried we aren't really treating the root cause of what's going on.
I'm having an initial consult with a new chiro today. They do x-rays, but I don't know what we will find.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? What was it and what was the treatment?
