On and off since last September my left leg has experienced episodes of weakness...or rather perceived weakness. I am able to walk, run, and do my weekly workout, which consists of a rigorous leg routine. The feeling I experience is only in my left leg and it isn't painful...but rather annoying...almost like it has a slight case of restless leg syndrome. To me, it feels 'weaker' than the right. But like I said, I can still workout and easily do squats of 175 lbs 6 times without stopping.
My left arm: It, too, will experience a perceived weakness. I've been experiencing a tingling sensation in it lately, almost like it has a case of goose gumps. It comes on suddenly and lasts maybe a minute? I've also had small pains on the top of my left hand, numbing of my left pinky, and a painful sensation on the top of my forearm, about an inch or so down from the elbow. The pain lasts no more than 5 minutes then goes away. If I sit too long in a chair with my forearms positioned on hard arm rests, both elbows will bother me...and fingers on both hands will go to sleep.
I do have a history of sciatica problems and do spend quite a bit of time on my lap top. But my brain still tells me MS, MS... I'm driving myself crazy. Please help...anyone else experience this?
