Hello my name is nicole and i have been battling this unknown condition since October.. i am very frustrated and starting to giving up.
back in october i have developed numbness, prickling, ant-like crawling sensations.. i have been in a lot of pain such as; muscle spasm, burning sensations on skin. these symptoms vary from time to time.. sometimes they are better or worst. it feels like my symptoms always change through out the months that i have been feeling this way. i went to my family doctor to do blood work, i have done pretty much all the basic blood work and everything was NORMAL, i went to a neuro i did an MRI, EMG/ NCT and it seemed NORMAL. my symptoms were still the same. no change. maybe a bit better. i also did blood work that my neuro gave me and it came back fine. he said possibly small fiber neuropathy which cannot be detected with emg or nct.
nothing was changing so we decided to re-do all the tests and it came back NORMAL second time.
my symptoms recently became worst, i feel the pins and needle way more than before especailly both of my right and left hands, everytime i move my hands or position it i feel stabs just everywhere and burning like feeling. the prickling, ant-like feeling are always there.
i am not sure what else can this be, is this related to my muscles, nerves, bones? i am not sure what is the problem any why it cant be found.
neuro suggested gabapentin but i am not sure how i feel about starting pills. if i have no choice than i will.
any suggestions, recommendations will be much appreciated
