    Temporary Hand Paralysis, Involuntary Movements, ect

    I am in the beginning stages of looking for a diagnosis

    My symptoms -
    Muscle spasms - right hand, fingers, leg, and sometimes who body jerks.
    Tremors when reaching for things or when I'm getting ready to type or write.
    Unable to move hand for minutes at a time. It's not numb or "asleep" just not able to move.
    Muscles feel tired when I've done nothing to cause it.
    When my hand is floating idle (like over a mouse/keyboard/phone) it strongly jerks downward.
    Leg buckles under me when walking
    Frequently dropping things
    Stubbing my foot on the ground as if I didn't pick it up or move it far enough.

    Then there's some things not with my muscles..

    Trouble focusing visually on words/numbers. Writing and saying outloud things I'm reading completely wrong.
    Losing words, stuttering, trouble enunciating.
    Memory issues. Trouble recalling conversations or events from hours or days prior.
    Trouble peeing as in I really have to concentrate. Peeing very often even having to get up at night 1-3 times.
    Having to stop while I typing or writing midword to see what letters/numbers I've already written. I just kinda forget where I was at.
    Lots of proofreading has to be done lately.
    General fatigue, sometimes oppressive.

    Really started noticing symptoms about six months ago, some cropped up within the past two months. Feels like it's slowly worsening. PCP kept mentioning "neuromuscular" so this seems to be a good place to post this.

    Longer than I thought, sorry. Anyone experience this particular combination? I have only had blood tests thus far to rule out stuff, and have a EMG scheduled in a couple weeks.

    Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

    Sorry to hear about your symptoms.

    Have you met with a neurologist yet?

    They will most likely schedule an extensive battery of blood tests as well as mri's of your head, neck and spine as well as an EMG.

    Your symptoms are extremely varied so many tests will be needed. I suggest keeping a journal of your symptoms with dates and detail.

    Please keep us informed of your results,

    Take care,
