I was released from the emergency room on Friday - unable to walk with shooting pains down the front of my calves - body will freeze in position and right arm will turn into a claw- I breathe and then I am able to walk. The longer the distance from car to back of dept. store all mobility stops. Blood pressure is irregular and increases with pain. Right outer leg is numb - excessive fatigue. Joint pain in ankles in am throbbing pain in arms this is intermittent. Memory is as if I no longer have a filter for my thoughts. Right leg spasmed for about 30 seconds for no reason. Have been having balance issues in the past and dizziness - walk to right of wall. Also within the last 2 weeks all is getting worse. When fatigued I walk as if I am 90 years old. I am a 48 female non-smoker. I have been to numerous doctors - all test come back normal and they comment this is interesting but have no idea what is wrong with me. I have constant pain in my hip region - very tight. At the emergency I had a CAT scan and full blood work all is normal. I had a shooting pain in the back under the left shoulder blade which caused blood pressure to elevate to 212/110 as the pain subsided so did the blood pressure. I check blood pressure daily usually around 132/78 or lower. If I am in pain the blood pressure goes up. Any suggestions?? Denise
