Well my husband had to take me again to the er saturday.  I layed down for a nap and he had come home, i was unable to talk (all garbled), move my legs, (felt like a 500lb boulder sitting on them) and arms were tingly and hands drawn in.  He rushed me to the er and they gave me 2 shots for the headache (which by that time had gone down to its normal everyday ache) and then they sent me home. 
A few new things have been happening, symptom wise, most of my neuro issues were all on my right side, such as weakeness and skin sensations.  Over the past few weeks losing strength on my left side too.  What used to be the pin pricks feeling all over my body has become more like fire ants biting me and now my legs and feet will fall asleep standing sitting or laying down. 
On the brighter side, the neuro dept at the mayo clinic in arizona has approved to see me, but the calendar is closed.  So as soon as an appointment is available i'll be scheduled. 
It has been getting very "Hot" here during the day and I spend alot of time trying to stay cool, since the heat really makes me even more exhausted.  Hope everyone has a great weekend and stay cool

Hi Cyndi,

Sorry things seem to be getting worse and I hope you can get into the Mayo clinic real soon. Are you on the cancellation list? My husband has had episodes where he can't move/can't talk and it's quite a scary experience. His occurs when the pain level gets beyond tolerable and all he can do is lay there. I'm not sure if your situation is pain related or something else but I do hope they figure out whats wrong and give you some relief.

We've been staying inside a lot this summer too, very hot one!

well it started with a very quick onset headache but so much pain i could hardly stand it, then it went away almost as fast as it came on. It was still at a dull ache but tolerable so i layed down for a nap, then that was when it all went down hill. Im really trying to do the best job at waiting but you all know thats a tough one. lol My poor house looks like a tornado hit it, but hubby says ohh well lol it will get cleaned when it gets cleaned. BUT i can hardle stand it this way, so try to do a lil bit at a time, sometimes just mopping keeps me down for hrs.

Im not sure if im on the cancellation list because of the fact that i would i have to drive from nebraska to az. I just just hope its sooner than later, but im just glad that they neuro dept accepted/approved to see me. Which in itself has been some relief.

Stay well everyone

what you are describing, happened to me the other day.  it freaked me out.  i was in bed, and just couldn't move.  my husband says it was like i was dead.  there are times, when i do something, especially when overly tired, that i don't remember doing.  my husband says i made a bowl of chili i don't remember making.  he brought home burger king i don't remember eating, then i asked for more food, because i thought i hadn't eaten.  he came to bed one night, and i am standing in the middle of the bedroom, telling him that he just asked me to do something, when he hadn't.  he will come to bed, and there i'll be, sitting up, rocking, sleeping, with my eyes wide open.  he will carry on conversations with me that i don't remember having.   
what the heck is happening to me?????  i feel stupid, and i used to say that i was having one of my "i feel stupid today days", now, they happen every day!
good luck, and god bless
