Hello, everyone. I installed this app on my phone recently--and I'm hoping it can help me keep better track of my symptoms. I am a 34yo female, and I have been suffering from chronic fatigue and muscle spasms for many years. My general practitioner never took my symptoms seriously (spinal xrays and MRIs only show mild osteoarthritis), but my husband and I grew increasingly worried as things began to worsen and progress. So here are my issues:
- I now have a lot of left-sided nerve pain (have had trigeminal nerve and sciatic nerve flareups).
-I have coccygeal pain and pelvic floor and rectal spasms which are horrifying and embarrassing.
- I have episodes of skin sensitivity in a range of locations; it basically feels like a deep sunburn-but I have no rash or inflammation.
-Let me not forget that I have grown even more clumsy. I trip over myself a lot and sometimes have wobbly/shaky episodes.
I decided it was time for a neurologist. I finally had my first appointment last week-and the doctor has an MRI brain scan set up for me for Thursday. I'm nervous but kind of hoping for answers sooner than later.
Does anyone else here have similar issues as me? How do you all deal with the daily torture? What should I request in terms of further testing?
