I took yall's advice and went to see a neuro doc about my problems. She found some places getting numb on my feet and, unexpectedly, on my lower legs. My balance is a little messed up. I tend to lose a little balance when I close my eyes and I can't walk heel toe at all. I have pain in both my thumbs now pretty much equally the same and the Cymbalta and Lyrica combo doesn't seem to be doing anything. I get blood drawn today and my nerves and muscles zap tested next week. I go back to the doc in a fee weeks for results. I sure would like to hear from you if you have or had similar problems. Thanks.

Sorry you are going through this. My nerves are still good, so I don\'t really have any advice. Get well soon and I hope you find decent help!

Thanks, they seem to know what they\'re doing so far.

I\'ve had bizarre muscle, joint, & nerve symptoms for years before dx w/HCV. Standing still, electic shock to back, need to lean or fall down. Many other examples. They are fleeting. I ignore.

Thanks ptriss. The thing is, my symptoms are slowly getting worse and the fact that they are equal on both sides of my body and I repeatedly can\'t do the same things without losing my balance has me worried. Electromyography next week, see doc week after. I hope it\'s nothing.
