Hey, first of all thanks for reading, I'm a 20 year old male and I'm experiencing some strange problems.
By the end of 2015, I noticed my hair started falling out. I thought it was male baldness but when I got other symptoms such as fatigue, weight loss and headaches, I did some blood work and my doc said it was a thyroid problem (subclinical hypothyroidism). I also got really low levels of vitamine D so I started taking some to fix that.
Fast forward January 29th. I'm finishing my exams and noticed my foot started to make some uncontrollable movements. No big deal as I had lots of stress and sleep deprivation during the exams and thought it'd go away.
We're mid february now and the spasms have only gotten worse. Especially my calfs and feet make some uncontrolled movements (I'd say every two minutes or so, especially if I lie down or am in a resting position). From time to time, I also get slight jerks in the face or arms (but way less often). It only seems to happen if I am not using a limb. Controlled movements and walking are just fine.
I feel pretty good except for the spasms, the only thing I did notice some pale stool. I'm pretty worried about this situation as the spasms just won't stop. I went to the hospital and had several test. I told the neurologist I was worried about MS but he already told me twice he doesn't believe my symptoms are caused by MS based on my descriptions.
Every test we did so far came back normal. I did:
- MRI of the spine - he said it looked flawless
- EEG - came back normal
- EMG - came back normal
Sceduled (but in a month or so)
- MRI of the brain
Any thoughts on this? The brain MRI could possibly reveal the cause but it takes another month. Anyone had these problems before with the same test results (normal)? Is full body muscle twitching (only symptom) for two weeks even a thing?
