In Aug. 2006 I went to ER at our State hospital. and since then I have had 2 MRI of lowere lumbar, MRI of my neck, MRI of my brain and tomorrow I go see a neurologist. Been seeing a Neurosurgeon as my pain started out with my back hurting really bad and when I would walk for exercise with my friends I would start tripping over my feet, expecially my left side and my leg would get tingly and then start feeling so heavy. Well my symptoms have progressively gotten worse. My legs hurt all the time, some days worse than others. Left side being worse. My right shoulder feels like someone has pulled it out of it's socket and used my shoulder as a punching bag. Shoulder does not always hurt. It does not take much for my legs to do their magic disappearing act where I start walking funny and tripping over my feet. At night even though I am tired, I really hate going to bed because my body seems to tighten up and I toss and turn throughout the night of course I have to slowly turn and stretch my leg out before turning to a new side only to turn back 20-30 min. later. If I am really zonked and end up sleeping in one position for too long boy to I pay for it when I end up moving. Mornings when I get out of bed are so painful and some morning my legs do not even feel like they will hold me up. Another thing that has happened is when I had a head cold I don't know what happened but long story short is I kept losing my balance and fell 6 times before my husband ordered me to sit on the couch and watch tv. About 4 of those times were hard falls. I was pretty bruised up a few days later. So if anyone out there can tell me if they have experienced any of these symptoms. Oh I almost forgot, by the end of a work day I am so exhausted and my body feels weak and my arms just are so uncoordinated it is hard for me to even open a ziplock bag. I get tired super easy also. OK I think that is all for now.
