I went into the Dr's concerned about bladder problems and a constant intention tremor in my right pinky (at that time it had been going on for 7 month's). Because of many unfortunate circumstances I kept getting the "run-around" from GP's and had to keep starting over with new MD's, and hadn't gotten anywhere.

I had already booked an appointment for a new Dr. and my first appointment was only 2 days away when a few fortuitous events occurred that got me out of the vicious "run-around" cycle. My meeting with the Dr. appointment was on Monday, on Saturday my right thigh went numb on the front side, the next day my thigh had a charlie horse type pain that lasted a few minutes, and had me cussing and hopping around my apartment. From that day on I have had extreme burning sensations that last anywhere from 1-6 hours, and that muscle has been numb ever since.

Monday finally arrived, and I was fatigued waiting for the Dr. in my patients room. I decided to lye down on one of the uncomfortable exam tables we all know and love. Only a few minutes after going flat on my back, the Dr. entered the room. I sat up to say hi, but for a minute only gibberish came out of my mouth, I was having a monster headache at the base of my skull, a tingle was running down my spine, the whole time someone kept tilting the room on me, and to boot I am a masculine male that was crying like a baby because this was happening.

Earlier I called these events lucky. Ironically, they were! All the new stuff that started in the last couple of days (I have never had a severe attack such as the one that happened on that table), led the Dr. to run all sorts of tests, refer me to a Neurologist, and order many tests such as an MRI.

The MRI showed that I had SEVERE Cerebral Degeneration. I have since been stuck in limbo for over a month (and that sucks!!), with no one having any idea what is causing it yet. I have read MANY, MANY stories people have posted about these sorts of things. Without that MRI I am afraid that I would be like the masses: told it was all in my head, and not be taken seriously. That indifference would have not only kept me in the "run-around" cycle, but would have driven me more insane than my next question...

I have a myriad of other lesser symptoms that I am too lazy to type right now :) but I was wondering if anyone has any idea what it may be, or if others are having the same problems?

Btw, the MRI shows that I do not have a brain tumor.
