I've been having strange symptoms for the last two months. It always happens in the morning and it's happened about eight times. I have low b12 and am getting a course of injections for it. I get my last one in a month. I know b12 can cause problems with your nervous system but I've been worried about simple partial seizures.
I don't know if what I'm experiencing is like that at all so I'd appreciate if anyone with this kind of seizure happening to them could let me know.
 
I barely wake up and my stomach, chest and throat feel tight. The muscles in my neck get sore because of this. I experience a strange smell(a cross between fresh washing, dental gloves and a hot iron) Sometimes my breathing is rapid and sometimes not. I have pins and needles in my back or head. The last symptom is that I shiver uncontrollably although not cold. Sometimes my whole body won't shiver just my bottom lip or my left hand and foot. If I close my eyes I can see shapes going in and out and my head feels like it's buzzing

Nicola81.

Sounds to me like your brain could be lacking oxygen while you sleep, could be for various number of reasons.

IMO ~ I would try to get a referral to see a sleep specialist. They can do an EEG on you while you sleep. From this, they can see if you're getting enough oxygen while you're sleeping and/or if you're having seizures in your sleep that you don't know about causing you to feel tired, no energy, soar throat, sore chest muscles, (this can also explain the pins & needles)etc.

You could have a form of sleep apnea, easily cured, which is causing your problems.

Maybe worth checking in to.

thanks, I never thought about sleep apnea. My GP said she'd send me for an EEG if after the b12 injections I still feel the same. I assume you've been for one? What's it like?

Nicola81,

Re: Sleep study ~ It's an EEG done  while you sleep. The lab techs. monitor it all night as you sleep, from that they can see how many times during the night that you stop breathing or how many seizures you have during the night. From these results, the Doctor can determine what treatment you need.

do you think it could be seizures? also do you have to sleep in the actual centre? I've seen people who take the equipment away with them.

nicola81,

Not sure about either one, I guess it depends on your Doctor and your individual case.

My symptoms have changed a bit recently. I'm still getting the tight feeling in my stomach and the vibration feeling in my head and body but I'm getting a lot of muscle twitches too. The muscle twitching spreads throughout the day. I have an appointment with a neurologist in just under two weeks so I hope I'll get an answer.

I went to see a neurologist. He said it might be partial seizures but he's not sure. I have to have an MRI in just over a week and a sleep deprived EEG at some point.
