Exclamation What's happening?? - June 10th 2012, 05:35 AM

Ever since October I've had a back injury. I get numbness in my legs, arms, back, hips, head and face randomly. My shoulders, neck and back are in constant pain all the time. I have trouble breathing a lot, at least 5 times a day now. I get weak randomly and feel like I'm going to pass out. I get dizzy and sometimes black out. I am always tired, even when I sleep really good and eat a healthy diet. I get plenty of exercise and I'm not over weight or under weight. Im very athletic but I don't over do it. I've had 2 Mris of my brain and they couldn't find anything, I'm getting 2 more on my back next Friday. I had my blood drawn but all they could find was that my vitamin D was low so now I'm on vitamin supplements. I took a test where they see how long it takes these electrical pulses to reach my brain but I haven't gotten the test results back yet. Any ides what could be wrong with me?? I'm starting to get worried/scared and I hate feeling like I'm about to drop dead all the time :/

Wanted to add that I also have headaches/migraines everyday. I also can't bend over from the waist because if I stay bent for a little while I get dizzy and start sweating and my back hurts really bad.



When I'm sad I think, "I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt!"

I know it's terrifying not knowing what's wrong, but try to stay positive--you're doing everything you can to get this sorted out. Besides, half the battle is actually getting to the doctor and convincing them that they need to run more tests than just blood work. And the fact that your brain MRIs were negative can be a good thing. I say 'can' because I know how frustrating it is to get your hopes up for a diagnosis only to have your results come back normal. However, the clean MRI's rule out a lot of scary possibilities.

You're still waiting for some test results, and still have a few more tests to run--something is bound to show up in them to clue your doctors into what's wrong. I know waiting is like the absolute worst part of the process, but you'll get through it. Time passes whether we want it to or not. They're going to figure out what's wrong, and in the mean time stay strong, if you need anything, my PM box is always open.


If no one cared, I wouldn't be sitting here typing this.

Numbness and tingling makes me think that there is something happening with the nervous system. Perhaps there is some compression of the different nerve plexuses in your body. I'd say when you go in for tests, ask what they're testing for. I think the electrical stimulation testing was done to see if the nerves were conducting properly.

Who knows. Maybe you can get something for any of the pain you're feeling. Or maybe you will need physiotherapy, and/or massage once you start to recover. If you have any concerns, just ask the doctors. Really, it can be any concerns.
