I'm a 35yr old female. I've been diagnosed with migraines, insomnia, nocturnal seziures, fibro, seen literally dozens of specialists for multiple symptoms over the last 17yrs. Over the last 5 years I've had localized (mid-line) back pain, near my right rib cage that radiates to the front of my right side of my body. I've had mulitple x-rays of the back and chest. I have a reverse curve of my neck so I've had a MRI of the cervical and lumbar, but not until recently did I have a thoracic MRI (was told this area rarely is injured). Turns out I have lesions and arthritis. Within a month both legs became numb. Not numb like I couldn't feel them, but numb from the inside out. Worse at night, worse when I layed down, worse on my hips. My legs HURT. This lasted for 19 days. On about day 15-19 my upper arms began to do the same. My rhumatologist prescribed amatriptaline and said I may have MS and wants me to go BACK to my neurologist (who I finally got a clean bill of health from after years of going every other week a year ago only to check in yearly). I go this Tues to my nuero to see what she has to say.

Anyone have any suggestions, or any similarities to any of this? There is so much more, but this is just a quick view.
