Last October I had a slight cold and my right arm went numb. Not pins and needles but a burning sensation. Never lost strength or feeling. Lasted for 1 day. Then the feeling started to migrate throughout my body. Legs, face , torso. It would come and go. Neurologist said stress. Did Cat scan, MRI blood work , all normal. Now there are some days where my legs feel weak but I never lose balance. I do feel dizzy when I close my eyes(like on a boat) . I also get small twitches in my legs(calfs) but they only last a few moments most of the time. The weakness is not a painless one. Also in my arms. My GP said it is all in my head and pushed me off. Another Gp thought it could be fibromyalgia. 2 Neurologist said not MS or ALS but I am scared. I am 36 and feel like dirt. Any ideas please let me know.
