hi, i'm anna.
i have some strange symptoms which may be related or unrelated, but as yet i have not been diagnosed with anything. except for depression, which i believe is unrelated. i was hoping someone may have experienced something like it, or may be able to suggest what tests i could have done/ what i might have.
my symptoms/ history:
* tiredness/ fatigue a lot of the time, been there for years (tested for anaemia a few times, had it when i was 8 or so but never since)
* 2 years ago i woke up with an almost completely numb lower right leg (went away after a day, but next day experienced severe weakness in ankles and some pinched nerve pain in right side of back. pinched nerve pain continued intermittently for two weeks to a month. after that, just weakness and shaking in legs when trying to do physical activity)
* weakness and shaking in my legs (particularly my right one) still bothers me, particularly weakness when i'm walking up stairs and shaking when i'm walking down stairs (especially once i've walked up and down a few)
* my toes are often purple, even when i'm not feeling cold
* or my toes are bright pink (particularly when i walk etc)
* sometimes after doing the dishes and having my hands in hot water my fingers stay pink for a long time and feel hot
* sometimes i feel 'out of it', most often with fatigue
* my uncle has vitamin B12 deficiency and nerve issues (i have been tested for the B12 deficiency but don't have it, and his nerve problems involve pain which atm mine don't)
* blood tests for anemia
* blood test for vitamin B12 deficiency
* blood tests for diabetes
* blood tests for some autoimmune diseases
* MRI scan for multiple sclerosis
* basic neurological tests with hammers and torches
all of the above tests have been negative/ normal (with the exception of anemia when i was 8)
i have just had more blood tests for anemia, autoimmune diseases and thyroid problems. will get the results tomorrow, but am not getting my hopes up too much
can anyone offer suggestions/ comments?
p.s - thanks for reading!
