Please help, progressive neurological symptoms

Posted , 1 user is following.


I don't know if I have Guillain-barre but I am having very strange symptoms with no test that has shown anything suspicious yet. I have had tons of weird symptoms but in short I've been having waxing and waning pain in different areas of my back (for example I'll have a really bad flare in my lower back and then it will improve after a few weeks and then it will happen in my neck). It will be a burning pain that I feel deep inside but can't illicit it when I touch. After a really bad flare of lower back pain a few months ago, ever since I've been having a vibrating feeling in both of my legs and lower back and also muscle spasms in my pelvis and anal area and in my legs. When I stand up, I will almost tremor in my legs sometimes. I recently developed a tingly right hand in addition to the symptoms that I still have after a bad bout of the burning neck pain. I've had noncontrast MRIs of my entire spine which were normal. I've had numerous blood tests that were normal. I have an EMG scheduled in a few weeks but I feel like my body is slowly deteriorating and I don't know what to do. I almost wish I could be admitted to the hospital and all these tests run within the span of a few days rather than months.

    In hindsite, I think I've experienced this before. I was having pain in my lower back a few years ago and what felt like bloating in my stomach and I actually focused more on the stomach part when in hindsite I think it was muscle spasms/muscle tightening that I'm now feeling in my pelvis and back (it feels like someone is hugging me almost). During that time, I was also experiencing burning in my feet. I had a test done that showed possible small fiber neuropathy however, I had a skin biopsy that was negative for that. I let it go after that and it very slowly went away.
