Well, Um Numbess, burning pain,freezing pain,pin & needles/tingling, Muscle weakness, Muscle loss, tremors, popping & cracking noises coming from Joints(due to the lack of muscle fluidity), fasciculations, back-pain,neck pain, left side of face going numb, Acid reflux symptoms, temporary paralysis, constant falling,lights flashing in vision. (MS, Epilepsy,Diabetes, thyroid, & just about every other condition I can think of has been ruled out. ) doctors kept saying Anxiety until very recently when a trip to the ER got me a Neuropathy Dx. My PCP & his associates said Anxiety or you might have disease not yet discover by medicine until 2 days ago when I said look,I understand I have a history of psychiatric issues but this is not psychiatric. I was dx with Peripheral Neuropathy at the ER.Finally my PCP gave me a script the read:DX Ploy-neuritis of unknown etiology & he also gave an order for the (EMG/NCV) testing on all 4 extremities. Thanks so much for listening Emily’s mom.
