I am here to ask for some opinions on my symptoms and whether anyone else has experienced anything similar. I am a female in my 30s.
Approximately 9/10 months ago I would wake to numb arms. The sensation was as if i had slept on my arms and they had gone 'dead'. After a number of weeks of this happening I saw my GP who referred me to physio. This didn't help and eventually this sensation turned into all over internal vibrating / buzzing. I usually notice this most at rest or when tired but it is a constant buzzing feeling that stops and starts again quickly.
I saw my GP again who referred me to neurology. By the time I had my neurology appt I had been experiencing this for at least 8 months. I also now have constant all over muscle twitches and arms and legs that feel like i have run a marathon after small tasks such as hoovering.
My neurologist has referred me for an MRI but the wait is currently 7/8 months so no answers anytime soon. All bloods came back fine with the exception of slightly high ESR (though online suggests not really high at all).
My muscle twitching is now all over. I experience it all day in all different places. It seems to shoot from one place to the next with no obvious triggers.
Dr Google keeps directing me to MND/ALS which is terrifying but rare so I am hopeful there is another cause to my symptoms. Not sure if there are other tests anyone would suggest in the meantime? All deficiencies and blood work were normal so that is ruled out.
