It all started with tingling, numbness, and aches and pains about a month ago and my horrible fear of MS.
Primary Care Doctor said nothing was wrong with me, but ordered blood work done - blood work came back normal for lyme, hypothyroidism, vitamin deficiency, and a couple others (no ANA test was done though).
The pain continued - my calves and thighs hurt so bad I could barely sleep at night and I'd get shooting pains up and down my right leg starting in my butt. Ended up going to the ER and the Doctor diagnosed me with Anxiety and said not to worry.
Went to the Neurologist next, did some tests in the office - everything was normal except for "brisk reflexes" - ordered me to get an MRI of the brain and spine just to be sure though.
My MRI came back normal - no evidence of MS or anything else wrong with my brain or spine.
I started to feel a little better for a few days in a row finally. Then, two days ago I started to get these nerve pains in my left and right fingers - they would come and go. Eventually they went away, but now my hands just ache and I wake up stiff every morning in my hands and feet.
It also looks like the blue veins in my hands are more visible and I'm starting to get scared because my left ring finger - it's starting to get a little blue/purple under the nail. My hands and feet are also really cold - much colder than usual and the muscle aches all over my body have not let up either - typically after moving around and using those muscles is when they start to get really sore and tender. I'm also getting burning sensations in my feet and hands - a lot.
I'm starting to panic again and I'm terrified I have something like lupus...
Anyone have similar symptoms?
