did anyone ever experience foot/leg drag? i am trying to figure out if i have another type of neuro problem. i have been investigated for

MS as well and it came back negative...but i also wonder to other people get twitches and fasciculations , they have moved from my legs and wrist to my back and neck now, do you get tingling sensations?

    i don't know what to call it, but I have days where I can't lift my feet and I just shuffle along. My kids think iits hilarious for some reason and take the proverbial but I justlaugh with them to be honest unless I am feeling in a very low mood, then I just burst into tears. I have noticed that I can cry for no apparent reason too. The other night I was watching the vicar of dibley and one part made me laugh so hysterically but suddenly turned to crying! What on earth is that all about? I felt really embarrassed actually!

    Hi Terig, I was also tested for |S with lumbar puncture, MRIs and also evoked potentials. I get a 'thickness' feeling rather than total numbness in my feet and left leg, so when its bad I limp a bit. Also heightened sensitivity sometimes on the outside of my legs...its all very weird, but I'm tols its all part of CFS/Fibro that I have. I used to get lots of muscle twitching, especially my feet anf lower legs, but its got a lot better since taking magnesium supplements.

    Shaz, I also get very emotional very easily..especially the tears, but it usually happens when I'm watching something on TV that is the tiniest bit emotional!! My children think I'm a huge softy smile cheesygrinJK
