Hello everyone, my name is Irina, I am 38 years old female. Never before had I any serious problems with my health. Starting last November I noticed lack of strength and slight pain in the back of my left arm and leg. Short time later my left leg started feeling really cold,( abnormal sensation) from toes up to my knee, I always wanted to put on multiple socks. It seems to be just a feeling of sensation because for a doctor both limbs had the same temperature. I visited my GP and was sent to neurologist. Routine exam did not show anything. MRI with contrast performed on December 27th 2017 did not show any neurological abnormalities. At the end of December another symptom manifested - unregular sometimes rhythmic sometimes not jerks(twitching) of fingers/muscles ( myoclonus) . As well as feeling of stress and anxiety, depression.
Later it became not only myoclonus of my muscles, but jerking of hands and feet, neck in relaxed condition. At the end of Jenuary I started feeling burning sensations (as I understand parastesis) all over my body - face, back, legs, and after that my skin sensetivity was reduced. In certain areas I felt intense pain a few times and after that those areas became numb. Also I noticed problems with my eye sight, more precisely focusing my eyes, reading from far distance. (what I could read before, I can not now). I went to neurologist with these symptoms again, routine exam did not show any problems, 30 minute EEG was also normal according to a doctor. Neurologist suggested waiting and recommended a psychiatrist, psychiatrist prescribed pills ( escitalopram, mirtazapine), that helped me somewhat with anxiety, but did not address the problem with my symptoms, which are getting worse. Today I have the following symptoms: 1. Regular Burning sensations of different areas of my skin on feet, legs, face. 2. Worsening of vision, focusing of eyes, pressure on the eyes. 3. Pressure in my head, especially forehead and ears (no pain) 4. Myoclonus jekrs, which, I think because of antidepressants subsided, but not completely gone, Yesterday (March 20th) I had an eyeball twitch, but did not record it in time. 5. Tiredness. 6. Much less sweating (for prolonged time). Lime decease test was negative, Vitamins are all normal, overall blood work is normal. I did not have lumbar puncture. Looking at the internet I self diagnosed myself with few degenerative diagnoses, including prions. Do you have any ideas? thank you!
