Just want to give everyone an update:

Went to ER. The doctor tested me and insisted the weakness was more muscular than nerves, despite me telling her again and again and again I had burning nerve pain, numbness, prickling and involuntary muscle twitches, all signs of nerve involvement. She sent me for yet another blood test and of course it came back normal. Shen then sent me back home saying I am just fine and dandy.

So frustrated!! I want to tear my hair out! Except I can’t even do that …

I still can walk but my feet feel so heavy and I am worried that I will develop feet drop soon. My hands are so weak and shaky, typing is hard and my iphone feels like a ton.
