i have rheumatoid arthritis..also HLBA B27 querying ankylosing spondylitis..also cervical spondylosis, and a disc prolapse at L5.
About 4-5 months ago, i started feeling extremely fatigued, which has left me 4-5 days out of 7 falling a sleep at some point thro the day for 2-3 hours, even tho i am getting 7-8 hours every night. I feel like i have been drugged! Also nausea, lack of concentration, forgetting things, sweating, light headed, weak muscles?
I have had all bloods checked as i am on methotrexate also, and everything there is fine.
2 weeks ago i woke in the night with what i thought was a dead right arm...tried to get feeling back, arm slumped on bed, then had massive pins and needles followed by numbness, which radiated into my chest and my neck and right side of face..then down into left arm. I was taken into A&E, doctor said it is probs a pinched nerve somewhere, and to ask GP to refer to Neuro..which i have done.
Same thing happened again last night in bed again, this time it was also in both of my legs! this morning i have an aching heavy stiff right arm. Been to see GP who is getting me an urgent referral to Neuro.
If this is a pinched nerve can it give the symptoms i have been experiencing??..some i listed above.
Its really quite a scary feeling when it comes over me, i also tried to explain to my husband that i feel empty, like the shell of my body is here but i am not...told you ...feeling weird!!!
