I’m a 21 year old male. Around July 9th, I was driving and my finger tips started to have that “pins and needles” feeling and it crept up my left arm the entire way home. Then my left leg started to feel heavy a day or two after and then the rest of the left side of my body followed suit. If you draw a line down my body, the entire left side just feels heavy and “disconnected” from my right. There’s some muscles in my leg I can’t flex as hard as the ones on my right. My face is the same way along with my arm. It’s been this way for three weeks. About a week and a half to two weeks ago, I started to get muscle twitches throughout my body and they’re literally everywhere. The twitches usually occur when I’m laying down or not moving like when I’m sitting at a table. I’m also quite tired.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I’ve had blood work done, 2 chest x-rays, and an EMG and everything has some back clean. The muscle twitches and the “disconnected” feeling is really freaking me out. My doctor says he doesn’t think anymore testing is needed right now and I’m still over a month away from seeing a neurologist. Could this be MS? ALS? Just anxiety? I’m looking for answers because doctors aren’t really giving me anything but a cold shoulder.
