Hi. Have you had an MRI of the neck?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No MRI's done
OK Where is the muscle pain and twitching?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Muscle pain mostly left arm twitching not very common left thigh.. Have had extreme feet pain for 3 days last week.
Were you screened for magnesium or calcium deficiencies? How about Lyme disease?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Calcium b12 were fine... I'm taking magnesium and vitamin b supplements as neurologist requested helps with anxiety. Lyme i do believe I have done unless it shows in regular blood tests.
OK--so the neurologist didn't do any testing but just said it was anxiety?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No tests Looking at my age most probably he claimed. I did have 1 case of a bad panic attack 1 month after seeing the neurologist... family doctor believes it was caused from stress and worrying about the pains. I have notified the neurologist about the panic attack which was 1 month after his diagnoses he gave me cipralex SSRI. Took it for one month I stopped worrying but pain still existed and it effected sex very negatively so he told to stop it sent worth it.
OK--You need an MRI of the cervical spine to start with because most of this sounds like a cervical radiculopathy--a nerve root pinch, probably from a ruptured intervertebral disk. The headaches and the dizziness could also be from that, although I would screen you for Lyme on the outside chance that that's also in the mix here
