It all started with a very painful left forefinger a month ago and then has spread into the symptoms described above. My doctor has ruled out Lyme's Disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism and carpal tunnel syndrome. He has told me to wait and see because he does not know what to think.
Yesterday I had some twitching in my left thumb and forefinger. I almost dropped a cup of coffee because my thumb and finger were acting weird. Have not noticed anything today. Today is on and off burning in front of lower leg and top of foot (little weakness too) as well as hypersensitivity and weakness in my left palm.
Sometimes I have no symptoms, sometimes they are more severe. Sometimes muscle cramps on the left side and sometimes not.
Of course, I am terribly tired all the time, suffering from moodiness and irritability which is not like me and am having problems concentrating and remembering things.
Also I woke up this morning and my right lymph node below my jaw line is painful. It is slightly painful when I swallow. I had a low grade fever earlier but I think it is gone. This may be a separate issue.
I have looked all over the internet and these symptoms do not seem to fit into any category except possibly ms but I have had no optic nerve issues and that seems to be a recurring symptom I see with ms.
Hope you find your answers soon.
Im 21 and have been experiencing weird symptoms for about 2 years
tingling, crawling sensation all over arm and back....burning sensation on my scalp, shoulders .... just recently i started feeling pains in my head constantly and begged my doc to send me for a CT....so he did.... the results came back and he said i need to go for an MRI because it showed that the left side of my brain is less dense then the rest ....im really scared!! (( what does this mean ))
Went to hospital and they ruled out any heart condition problems or blood clots.
Not sure what it is. It gets worse when stressed and tired - and often when in bed.
I am 34 and it really worries me because i just can't concentrate on anything when i feel like this
I was recently diagnosed with a cavernous angioma in my left tempro-parietal lobe after being diagnosed with a million things under the sun, like Lyme Disease, BiPolar Disorder, Anxiety, etc.
You should rule out a neurological -- i.e., a physical brain -- problem.
I know it sounds scary, but it is better to know what is REALLY wrong with you and get the correct kind of help.
Good luck to you!
All the best,
I had all the same symptoms, go wash your hair in this mix:
2/4 poly-tar shampoo
1/4 hydrogen peroxide (first week, replace with clean water after)
1/4 emu oil + apple cider vinegar
There should be enough hydrogen peroxide to make the foam. Let it sit in for about 20 minutes then rinse normally.
YOU HAVE (a very infective) PSYCORSIS
Swollen painful lymphnodes
Irritated personality (as hell, and I used to be such a smily hello fellow lol)
Painful, pin pricks at my finger tips even!
And mine was so sensitive it was infesting my heart and causing me indegestion.
Most important you are all mentioning this is over many years of symptoms, because its a virus and it cannot just go away. The mix above separates (not cures) the virus from your upper eperdermis of your skin. Then naturally your skin will flake it away. NOTE: Do not panic if you get a first huge big peal of skin, thats the infection the hydrogen peroxide didn't agree with.

psoriasis, occasionally acute but usually chronic and recurrent inflammation of the skin. The exact cause is unknown, but the disease appears to be an inherited, possibly autoimmune disorder that causes the overproduction of skin cells. Psoriasis may occur at any age but is uncommon in children. The characteristic lesion is a scaly "mother-of-pearl" patch, appearing anywhere on the body. Involvement may range from a single plaque to numerous patches that cover most of the skin. A variety of treatments are used for patients with mild to moderate cases. Treatments directed at the symptoms include the application of ointments and exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet (UVB) light. Retinoids help stabilize follicular epithelial cells. Vitamin D analogs and metabolites, although effective in treatment, have side effects. Photochemotherapy (psoralen combined with UVA radiation) is also effective, but increases the risk of skin cancer. Alfacept and other drugs that interfere with T-cell (see immunity) activation, and etanercept, infliximab, and other drugs that block tumor-necrosis factor are effective in many patients with moderate to severe psoriasis.
it started with my neck and then radiated up and down, it is very severe most days but on rare occasions it can be very mild,
in severe cases i get severe pain in my neck (right side only) that radiates down my right arm and up the right side of my head, i have painful lumps from behind my ear down to the windpipe on the right side going across my coller bone
this in turn effects my sight, my hearing, my speach, my right side of my head, the right side of the base of my head, and my right arm gets really burning stabbing sensations and then gets pins and needles, it is gettin to the point where i can no longer stand the pain, cocodamol doesnt work the doctor wont see me, the emergency doctor wont see me the walk in center cant find what is the matter but they dont have a doctor their...
i am hardly getting any sleep at all, i am having fits because of the pain, it is making me sick , i have snapped 2 of my teeth through gritting my teeth togather in agony, and apparently nobody will see me or do anything for me at all until i have had the baby,
i cant put up with this sort of pain for much longer, their is no pain relief i can take other than what i am taking now, heating the areas doesnt help and neither does ice, i tried both and both options seem to make it worse..
nobody will see me to do any tests to tell me what it could and couldnt be,
and jeeze i empathize with all of you going through the same thing
I have very similar symptoms and have fibromyalgia syndrome which is similar to chronic fatigue syndrome but with more pain. Might be worth cheking it out. Good luck i know how frustrating, painfull and disibilitating it can be.
