my symptoms began about a two years ago. I was sent to er with hives bigger than the size of my hand, covering my body . They were raised , red, warm to the touch, and itchy. Er doc dx as anaphalytic shock, to what i have no idea. the following morning i woke up with complete numbness in left hand, i had partial motor control,felt pressure, but it was that annoying "ants" feeling as when ur foot falls asleep. Well this tingling in my left hand cost me a lot, i had to undergo that nasty electrode shock test and some sort of circulatory test. That evening of the initial numbness i was preparing for an exam and the hives came back and brought blurriness with them. Its like i was trying to read through fog. I took this as lack of sleep and went to bed. months passed, still left hand numb, but no other symptom, my dr ruled it as a pinched ulner nerve,which made sense. about a year ago ,in the same exact order, 1st lesions...2nd the same numbness but less sensation, blurriness, and now a third~swollen joints. My left knee was dbled in size and sore to the touch ,but no brusing. My wedding rings had to be removed with dawn cause all of my joints in my fingers were redish purple and swollen. These symptoms lasted about a week. And reoccured at least once a month then slowly went away. Now, the symptoms still come and go in same orderly fashion but more systematic. I actually think i'm loosing my mind sometimes; i often feel like i have a wasp sting me and i react to it but there is nothing there, my toes,head,and some areas of my arms get the sensation of prickles;um.......kinda like the feeling of holding a sparkler firework and having those little beads hit your skin. I literally check my scalp for lice sometimes cause it feels like i have something moving my hair.(of course there is no lice or anything else like that) I was just recently accepted into the RN program ,which is very competitive, my GPA was above average of those in my class, well im no longer in my class. This past thursday we had our clinical skills testing and it was as though everything was one big blur, i couldn't think of anything. So i was then asked to resign from the program. That next night,friday, and since then , everynight i wake up soaking wet as though someone poured water all over me , but yet i am freezing. I have trouble sleeping, constant urination, sudden problems with my teeth, no bowel in 18 days, and i also have trouble distinquished a time frame. I don't remember if something happened this morning or three mornings ago. Am i loosing it, is it anxiety. I've already had an MRI = clear, and a lupus panel = negative. Somone please help me understand what's goining on. Also sorry for the long letter, it also takes me forever to get out what my point is , my husband is even beginning to think im cheating cause i can just be running to walmart to pick up milk and i seem to be in there forever~doing what , i haven't the slightest clue. If it helps in helping me figure out whats wrong: im 26 with one child. Thanks so much for putting up with my long "life story letter"
