Hi Doctor: My symptoms are dizziness
, off-balance feeling, tingling in the legs and hands and throbbing headaches
behind the eyes. This has been going on for more than 2 1/2 years. I've been through $10,000 in tests this year and the only thing they found is MGUS, IgG Kappa 0.4. The rest of the blood tests were normal. My hematologist
sent me for a full body xray which was normal. I've been to two ENTs including the House Ear Clinic which ran tests and said it's not the ear but "central XXXXXXX I've had an EEG, brain (with contrast), lumbar and cervical MRIs, EMG, heart and leg ultrasound
, ankle brachial indices, sleep study test and eye exams. Cervical MRI showed some disc compression but the neurologist
said it's not pressing on the spinal canal
and unlikely to be causing the symptoms. All the other tests were normal. Also diagnosed with TMJ and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder
). I took low does Klonopin and Celexa for years, but stopped them gradually a year ago because I thought they might be contributing to the dizziness. Could MGUS be causing the tingling and numb feelings the legs and hands? How about the dizziness? Thanks so much for your help.
