At wit's end, someone help me!!!!

For over a month now I have been having these strange symptoms. While standing or walking a short distance, I get light-headed and my legs go numb. The sensations stay with me all day long unless I sit or lie down. Sometimes I get extreme pressure in my head and feels like someone is stabbing me in the top of my head. Other times I get a very strong burning in the big veins in my left arm and leg. I have had a stress test and heart CAT done, both came back fine. No sinus or ear infections, my blood pressure stays pretty good 145/80. Doctors cannot pinpoint my problem. Someone out there shed some light for me. It stinks not being able to get out of the house to do anything. I'm open to any suggestions!!!

Get a referral to a neurologist.He can run test to get to the cause of the numbness and stabbing head pain.Talk to your GP about a brain MRI with and without contrast and a EMG/NCS to see if there is nerve conduction loss or even a MRI of the lumbar to see if theres a low back problem causing the numbness in your legs.
