I visited a friend while my husband was teaching at GITMO for one semester. I slept in a bedroom that had been treated for fleas with some kind of powder insecticide...she did not vacuum it up and I had no idea that it was on my mattress, under the sheet. I immediately began having tingling/numb sensations in my legs...had every test known to man done including heavy metal poisoning. I thought I had MS but the scan came back clear. Soon after the pain started. Went back to the doctor for RA, Lupus and another round of MS testing. Everything was perfect. DX'd with fibro about five years later. I still think it was the flea powder, but who knows?
