Joint Force

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


  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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?

  15. 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.

    you need to find a specialist that has a history of diagnosing hard to diagnose neurological problems. If such a person exists.

  18. For once I'd just like to go to the doctor and have him say, "I don't know". If it is psychological, then why go for the blood tests or get the MRI?.

  19. T-Bone,

    As I replied to you a while back, I had a friend and co-worker have very similar symptoms to you. It took him a long time, and many doctors to find out what was actually wrong. If you would like, I can try to contact him to find out who he saw..even if it is in another state, his surgeon/doctor may be able to set you on the right path where you are located.

  20. doctors generally suck

    Waiting for MRI results, and I'll get back to you. Thanks for the help. Will let you know.

  22. MRI results, everything is normal except for "mild arthritis". Yeah thanks for nothing doc!. So around $1700 now and no answers. This is a prime example of why I hate going to the doctors. It just ends up being a complete waste of time and money.
