Can anyone help me please. My sister has been having horrendous problems over the last 5 weeks. It started with severe back pain, she went to see a physiotherapist who worked on her spine but with no significant improvement. Then the pain shifted from her back to her tummy area, again with horrendous pain. She described it as if someone was holding her tummy and dragging it down. Again within hours the pain shifted to her groin and pains going down her legs. The ball of her foot then became very painful and her ankle and toes went numb. She described it as if electric shocks were traveling up and down her legs. This has been going on now for weeks. Her GP is now saying that he thinks she is depressèd, in other words in all in her head. Over the last 3 days her legs have become like lead very very heavy and she is unable to walk. She has not been able to poo for 4 days and although she can pass urine its very very infrequent despite drinking bottles and bottles of water. She also describes her skin as feeling as if there are things crawling under it. Her head and nose also feels numb and she has no scence of taste or smell. On Thursday evening she was screaming with a pain that was shooting up her vagina area and her buttocks. We ended up calling an ambulance and she went into A&E. The doctor told us he thinks it could be CES. We had never heard of it befor so obviously we googled it and was shocked that apart from the head numbness and vagina pain every other sympton she had. She was admitted onto a ward at 01.00 am Friday morning (yesterday) and was told she will be having an MRI scan around 10/11 Friday morning. We left her on the ward and came home for some much needed sleep. You can imagine our shock when we phoned the ward at 09.30 to see how she was in the night to be told she is being dishchared. I said but what about an MRI scan and fact that she could have CES. They questioned me as to where I got CES from I told them it was the doctors in A& E they practically called me a liar and said the duty registrar for that ward says she is able to go home with pain killers. I insisted that the nurse told the registrar what the A&E doctor thought and to call me back when she told hi. She called me back an hour later and said her anus contracted when he touched it. So in his opinion She does not have CES. She is still in excruciating pain and still can't walk but they put her in an ambulance and sent her home. Can anyone please give me any advise.
