Deep pain in legs amongst other things

Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice about my current health situation and would be very grateful for any opinions. Approximately two months ago I began to get a warm sensation in my left foot, it would last around 5 seconds and happen a couple of times a minute, this lasted 3 weeks. Immediately following this I began getting almost cramp like feelings in my hands, predominately on the left hand, almost felt like someone pinching the area between my wrist and little finger. A few days after this started I had a feeling of numbness in hands and feet, almost like they fell asleep. This lasted a few days. The next thing was a deep pain in both my legs, although again the left is worst. When walking it feels like tightness all the way from one leg across my groin and down the other leg. This is coupled with on/off warm sensations and pains in my wrists. I have an appointment with a neurologist but it’s not scheduled till September and I seem to be getting progressively more pain. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? Or can anyone offer advice on how to speed up the process of being seen. It’s been 2 months since the initial foot symptom and as it stands I’m beginning to become very worried.

Thanks to anyone who responds,

Jez

    Your symptoms sound very similar to my son's. He has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome which affects the central nervous system. He's in hospital at moment and was referred by his GP who sent him straight to the emergency Assesment unit. They did various tests and are treating him for GBS  and he's being monitored by neurologist. Go back to GP & tell them you suspect GBS and need to be referred for tests. Better be safe than sorry. Good luck

    thank you all for you comments, I took he advice and managed to speed up my neurology appointment. they ran the standard reflex tests and sensitivity tests and have reffered me to infectious diseases as they do not think it is a neurological problem. I am now wondering if it could be something like lyme disease as i was in the philipines over xmas and may of picked something up. I really hope that eventually fine a solution/cause as im now getting to the point were I dream of pain and wake up with pain, and have gone from running 10miles with ease to finding a two mile walk shattering.  Im also getting a ow body temp (35.5ish) quite frequently, mostly in the morning. Im quite clueless as to whats happening but its very scary.

      Low body temp and fatigue could be symptoms of underactive thyroid.  May be worth asking for thyroid tests (neurological symptoms can also be linked to the thyroid). Hope you get answers soon

    Thanks again to all those who responded.I've managed to speed the process up slightly and seen a neurologist who did some basic tests including reflex,balance and eyes and she didn't feel it necessary to do scans and forwarded me to infectious diseases due to s recent trip to Asia. The ID doc doesn't think it's from Asia so I'm now all the way to square one with no new answers as such. I have faith in the neurologists but can't help feeling some more rigorous test would of provided at least some stronger evidence it isn't Neuro based. That being said I'm slowly feeling better,less random sensations abd the twitching eased off when I returned to exercise. I'm left now with cramp sensations on sides of feet and hands so it isn't to bad just annoying. I'm beginning to wonder if it could be something like ms but both docs seems to suggest aftermath of a virus....not that I've been ill. Again thanks to everyone for ur comments nice.
