Adice needed - do I need to be tested again?

Postby Tiber2011 on April 17th, 2014, 8:37 am

I was feeling good up until recently. Very few fasics. Little-to-no pain.

Now, I'm feeling bad all over again.

Before, I wrote that I have a odd nerve issue: my left heel gets a prickling sensation when I pass a stool. My neuro ran a lumbar MRI, and found nothing; said it may be a nerve root irritation. This issue is still with me, especially when passing a stool or wiping after.

After this issue occurred, I felt this heavy, weak spot above my middle toe on the left foot; it comes and goes.
Is this a nerve ending? Is this a failing nerve in that region?

When I got up this morning, my upper left arm felt like I had a piece of tape stuck to it occasionally. It felt very tired when I was combing my hair when I was getting ready for work.

I had 2 EMGs; the last being in July 2013.
Should I get another EMG?

I leave for vacation on April 24th and I don't want anything bad to happen when I'm away.

you are fine. trust me. just nerves behaving badly, but they are sensory. You are going to have good days and bad days. bfs or non bfs. With bfs/anxiety the bad days seem really bad. You could try a light dose of melatonin during the day. it wont make you sleep but is a natural nerve suppressant

Bfs comes and goes. probably forever to a certain degree.

2 emgs is plenty. get off the cycle and enjoy your vacation and your life

have a good time

Thank you, DD. I am so ready to cal the doctor, though....I am fearful of driving for long periods or not being around medical care while on vacation.

you cant live your life like that. I did for for almost 10 years! now i climb mountains :D . Its painful when im done but very worth it. I decided i would not be controlled by BFS fear and anxiety. Always take the next step forward my friend. baby steps if neccessary.

It may take you awhile but trust how strong your body is. give it a chance
