I'm new to this site as of today. As i sit here typing, i am having to delete and retpye every other character (totally not normal for me). I have had numbness for the last 2 weeks starting in my left hand moving up my arm to my neck and face. then it started in my foot and leg, now it is in my left buttock and back.
The fatigue i have experienced for over a year and it has gotten very bad in the last 3 months. some days i can hardly make myself get out of bed to go to work. the last couple of nights i have had back spasms in almost a belt type feeling just above L4.
Today, my speech has been slurred and the numbness more intense. yesterday at work had a very tough time with feeling dizzy and nearly falling down.
I was dx'd with fibro in feb of 2009. last fall had similar symptoms to what im experiencing today. been dx'd with depression...no wonder, huh.
I've had chronic pain for several years...has just gotten worse over the last year...unbearable some days.
I do have a neurologist that I have been referred to by my PCP...I'm just waiting for a call back to set an appt.
At the point I'm at today though, my family seems to think i need to go to the ER....I'm just tired and scared and frustrated....
PS...I did post to an earlier topic just thought maybe i should start my own....thank you all
