I've been having increased neuropathy for several months. Suddenly I'm losing feeling in my limbs and falling. I've been to ER twice, had two LPs, and still no real direction. I have terrible muscle cramps and spasms day and night. I have had an abnormal EEG but normal brain, cervical, and thoracic MRIs. Any ideas?

Hi, I injured my foot (once bent my toes way back almost to my shine, second incident was falling straight down into an empty swimming pool, mainly felt it im my heel though) and the floor never completely healed, relative to pain, not use. But in the past 6-8 months my foot and now calf pain have increased and now I have paresthesia in my whole foot and calf, most notable when in bed and sitting down. My toes hurt for awhile, then my arch hurts (one of the areas where pain started), the top of my foot hurts, then the ball of my foot up into my big toe. I always have pain somewhere in my foot. The paresthesia feels almost like electrical current in my foot and calf. The pain is gradually getting worse. I have had X-rays, a CT of my foot and US of the foot. Just show typical arthritic changes (I m 59). Had a CT of my lumbar with contract. Trying to get an MRI of my LLE. Not diabetic. Toes on my rt. foot hurt a little once in awhile making me think I have neuropathy. Seems to be more than that though. Does it sound like something besides peripheral neuropathy?

i have many disc and lumbar problems, but suddenly my right groin, leg , thigh and foot went numb. i,m very active and was once a dancer- so i,m used to pain......but when i made a bowel movement it felt numb on that side internally and it seemed darkly discolored , but i,m on prednisone for a few days. i had lumbar mri, exray on hip and there was stenosis, bulging discs, sponylosis. i,ve had all this for years, and probably had femoral neuropothy .....but the numb bowel movent and color freaked me ou.

I have been diagnosed with an autoammune poly neuropathy which is demylentating. Ihave been dealing with this for 12 years and receive a HVIG immenoglobulin infusion every 2 weeks at 2 days in a row. My anti body count was taken about a year ago and it is elevated 1.5 times from the point of diagnosis. I also have discoid Lupus, bu as we knw these autoammune diseases can come in multiples and symptoms come and go as remission does it s part. But for the last 6 months i have had different more specific issues, like: a) eye pain with sudden onset of elevated pain that receeds in a minute or les b) almost always have a headache of low level that fluctuates in degree of pain c) eye dryness with discharge of tears especially in morning d) sudden onset sharp pain over eyes and ontop of eyes and at times in the temple region with the pain susiding in 3 to 50 seconds, like a lightening strike in slow motion e) have developed trouble swallowing my medications, stuck in process and need to force down especially at night. f) sudden bright light troubles me more that in the past g) slight quick but very noticeable tremmors in my head, like looking out a window and there being a tremmow that lasts 4 or 5 seconds - quick dizzy like effect. h) pain in trunk of body random and a pain in upper chest that seems between the skin and bone, in the flesh and muscle looping around my upper left breast. just a ramp up of not feeling well, tired as always with my existing conditions, but the anxiety of all of this is becomming awful - i am no doctor - but it seems like more is wrong than the neuropathy, or a new autoammune disorder has arrisec complicating my whole health issue - and often times at night when laying down it is worse, especially before daybreak as i am waking up - headache in the morning is usually worse. thanks and i know this is much, but i am at my ropes end with this ongoing stuff and would like a direction to go in todd m.
