It started when I was 14 years of age (am now 33) where I had certain symptoms such as weakness, tingling, tremor, partial numbness, muscle twitches, burning pain, pins and needles in my right hand, wrist and fingers and then the weakness and also muscle heaviness spread up that arm and then it spread to my left hand, wrist and fingers and then up that arm as well. I would also drop things when holding them. Then the same kind of symptoms spread to my legs from hip to toe with additional symptoms such as an abnormal gait and falling episodes or almost falling because of leg weakness. Then I started experiencing symptoms like my legs, one leg or one foot 'freezing' so that I couldn't move it temporarily. Then I started experiencing more widespread weakness and the symptoms, not just the weakness but also pain and muscle twitches spread up my torso and then it spread up to my throat so that I had trouble swallowing and I have a 'weak, soft-spoken voice. Then the symptoms spread into my face so that my eyelids drooped a little. Things improved partially but then returned with a vengeance when I was 29 and were much worse than when I was a teenager. I walked with an abnormal gait more severely, had a lot more falls which is over 200 falls in 2 years and the falls have continued, chronic dizziness, more weakness, my legs, particularly my right leg suddenly giving out on me. Also, the reflexes in my knees are abnormal such as poor or absent in my right knee and exaggerated in my left knee. Don't know what this could be from and was wondering if anyone may be able to help shed some light on what this may be.
