No diagnosis yet.. but symptoms for years

Posted , 2 users are following.

A few years ago i had some tingling sensation in my left arm, hand all the way to shoulders, not quite pins and needles, but not normal. it went a way and i didnt think anything of it. Then I would have weird arthritic pain my hands and feet, of course after a few days it would go away. The tingling occurs now and again hut always seems to be on the left side. When some generalized twitching occured I got nervous and finally made a Neuro appt. EMG and Nerve conduction was normal, he said per that no diagnosis or peripheral neurpathy, blood work was fine except my anti-mag antibodies were abnormal which can cause my symptoms. However he never mentioned the possibility of MS especially since my symptoms come and go. This past follow up my anti-mag antibody count was actually better, and I mentioned the possibility of MS, he said he would order an MRI but said my symptoms is usually not what people with MS come in with? I do have a difference in sensation to the left aide of my face, no drooping but the feeling is different in comparison. No gait issues, my eyes occasionally burn but ive noticed more at work where i use a computer all the time. I occasionally have pain in my lateral thigh areas bilaterally, and occasional burning sensation im my thighs but that hadnt been a problem for almost 6months. i have an MRI at the beginning of next month, but wondering if anyone else had these symptoms. thank you!

    I wrote a long answer elsewhere, but I would like to offer a possibility you probably haven't heard yet. Parkinson's Disease. I too had a multitude of symptoms and was undiagnosed for six years. Get a referral to a neurologist who SPECIALISES in Parkinson's... that's important. I saw two neuros who didn't pick it up, wasn't in their field of knowledge. Medication changed my life! Good luck.
