Quickly progressing and worried..

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’m 27 and otherwise have always been very healthy but in June I started having tingly fingers and toes. It was bearable but noticeable. By July my feet starting it burn and my fingers were in a constant ache. I began getting sensitive to hot/cold. In August, my symptoms worsen and I began feeling very weak. Walking was tiring, things that use to be easy like opening a jar became harder and the right side of my face was numb. I had an MRI- came back normal. Now it’s September and I have pain in my lower back, my legs loose all power when I’m sitting/lying down, my hands and legs feel like bee stings constantly, I have leaked when my bladder is full (can’t hold it properly), have horrible neck pain and just overall feel extremely weak. I have an appointment with a neurologist next week but I’m so full of anxiety already and wondering if anyone else had these symptoms and what did it turn out to be?

I’m still on pregabuline and another been 3/12 years basically I been still waiting to go to nerology again think I have cidp some thing that u can get after gbs . I don’t know but it sounds like u have gbs but not a doctor many similarities of your diagnosis that you talk about that are similar to that disease if so they better start doing some thing about it . As your dr say can u please test me out for gbs , Lyme disease , so on .
