    Sounds like a nerve issue if you ask me. Something blood work abd ab MRI most likely wouldnt show.

    You would think the doctors would have been able to figure that out. Both the doctor at walk in clinic and the ER doctor had no clue what was wrong. Sent packing with the same symptoms I came in with. People were staring at me while I was "walking" in the parking lot. Its ridiculous, this morning I fell down in my apartment. So hopefully it will just go away...Not about to spend more money on any other doctor.

  4. Don't think I should be dealing with this crap at 41 years of age.

    Sorry about that man, it works that way for me. What kind of difficulty are you having walking? The shoulder I would rest a couple weeks and see how it feels

    Legs feel very weak and heavy, it's like lifting my legs to walk feels like pushing off from the bottom of a squat each time. It's like they are dead weight or something.

  7. Now I have all these medical bills with no answer or diagnosis. Why is it that in the medical industry they can get away with this?. I mean come on, if you went to bring your car to your mechanic because it wouldn't start or something and they couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, they wouldn't be charging you for it right?. Maybe a small diagnostic fee but that depends where you go.

  8. I don't know what to do at this point really. Hasn't improved any during the day at all...Gotta get back to the gym. Hasn't even been a week yet, that I was gonna take off for the shoulder and now this.

  9. You you ever been checked for MS? Have you had tingling feelings or electric shock like feelings?

    Yes tingling in the legs, but the Doctor I talked to talked to me about that and said he ruled that out.

  11. A guy I used to work with who was at one point a national level heavyweight NPC competitor. He had the same issue..started with shoulder pain, then moved to arm and leg numbness/tingling. I by no means want to freak you out, but his issue after a lot of faulty diagnoses was calcification of one of his cervical spine openings, causing his spinal cord to be constricted. He had surgery and recovered just fine. My absolutely unprofessional opinion is that you should make an appointment with a real doctor, ask to be referred to a specialist! None of this walk in clinic bs

    I really don't want to spend anymore money on doctors. The guy at the ER was a real doctor, maybe not a specialist though. I'm gonna just wait this out. It seems to come and go depending on how much I sit or move around. When I woke up today I had thought it went away but as the day progressed the symptoms re-appeared. It seems to be worse after sitting down in front of the computer for a while. Then again it seems to get worse with how much I move around. For instance if I go for a walk, just from the bedroom to my mailbox, right outside my door, walking starts out fine but by 3/4 of the way to the mailbox I can't keep my legs straight and am dragging my feet, with knees bent. So its like I run out of normal strength extremely quickly.

    To me at this point it seems better to just wait it out and see if it goes away rather spend money I don't have on doctors that can't do anything for me except run more expensive tests. Even if it does go away I'm still a bit upset that no one could tell me the cause it what it actually is/was.

  13. Was pretty stiff this morning again and fell again. Still hoping this will clear up on its own.

  14. Best wishes T-bone. The medical care you've received is definitely a disservice. Do you have medical insurance?

    I do have medical insurance but it's only gonna cover something like 70% of the ER visit. Not sure exactly how much it will cover.

  16. I noticed today Caffeine seems to help mitigate my symptoms.

  17. Truth, I definitely noticed an electric shock type feeling in my legs yesterday shortly before I feel down. It was weird because I felt pretty good and then standing by the sink washing my hands all of sudden felt like I got an electric shock to my legs. Finished washing my hands and fell. Got up and felt pretty good for the first half of the day.

    Forgot what day that was. Today I woke up with pretty bad trouble walking and it's lasted throughout the whole day today so far. I had been on a Versa-1 cycle while I noticed this. I think Versa-1 might be masking the symptoms somewhat though, because today I decided to skip my dose and it seems worse. I also notice things seems to get better if I have caffeine. A pre-workout or a strong cup of coffee can temporarily mitigate symptoms.

  18. Maybe I should start a new thread on this.

  19. I have had the electric shocks in my legs but not the weakness. I probably should go to the doctor but the symptoms are very intermittent. My shocks are not like tingles, they literally feel like am being shocked, like you grabbed a power cord

    Yeah with intermittent problems it really isn't worth going to the doctor. All they are gonna do is run more expensive tests...My symptoms have be both consistent and intermittent. Say if I rest for a bit with no pressure on my feet, like laying down or sitting down with my feet up I'm fine for a while. It really depends on the way I position myself I guess. One day I get and I'm fine at first, but as time goes on later in the day I will feel the weakness and not be able to stand up straight.

    Other days I wake up and my legs are all stiff and I can't straighten my legs and if I move to fast I'll fall down.

    It also seems to depend on how much I exercise. Just sitting here in a small apartment and avoiding the gym because of this I don't get much.

    So, I mean unless this whatever it is disables me enough so I need someone to carry me to my car to get to the hospital, I don't think I'm gonna go back to the doctor.

  21. Seriously though, when I was "walking" to the parking lot out the Er I was leaning against the side of the building and people were all staring like "What the!??? is wrong with this guy?". Confused looks on their faces.

  22. This crap is back again. It has come and gone a few times since these posts. Always happens on a break from the gym. It's like working out is actually masking the symptoms.

    All the symptoms I was describing in previous posts.

  25. So I finally got an appointment with a Neurologist on Thursday. Let's hope the symptoms stay or get worse on Thursday. Otherwise it's like going to a mechanic when your car makes a noise and then you to to mechanic and the noise disappears. Same symptoms have come and gone 3 times since this first time in the ER.

    Thanks, but "my joint force"?. I'm just hoping that these symptoms stay or even get worse in time for my appointment. Strange, I know to wish for worse symptoms but doc said the best time to be evaluated is when I'm going through one of these "episodes".

    read some of your posts sounds like you may have Lherrmettes sign, it indicates spinal cord/nerve root irritation. If your symptoms are bilateral, it tends to be more serious then one side. Typically ipsilateral weakness etc is disc or stenosis related. Do you have saddle anesthesia? changes in bowel/bladder?

  30. Well I went to see neurologist today. Didn't get much of an explanation or even a diagnosis, just have to WASTE more money on another MRI(Cervical Spine) this time. He also said it could be mental. Psychological problems causing physical symptoms. I kind of doubt that though because I love working out and want to get back in the gym. In fact taking time off depresses me a bit. So now I have to wait on the blood tests($325), get "approval" from my insurance company to do the MRI, and pay another I think around $1500 just for the MRI. This is why I hate going to the doctor. I never can get a straight answer and I just end up going farther in to debt with no logical conclusion to my chief complaint. People should get the money back for services if the doctor doesn't have a clue whats wrong. For any other type of service you would either not have to pay or get your money back if the person can't fix the problem.

    Asked if I could go back to the gym but was told I should wait until after I get the MRI results. I'm thinking of just cancelling the MRI and going back to the gym tomorrow. Even though I can't walk right I can still squat.
