Hi! I'm new to the community... and 10 months into a mysterious debilitating condition that my doctor cant seem to diagnose.
I am an active athletic middle aged female. 10 months ago I came down with a basic flu bug and was in bed for a week. Once I started to feel better enough to get out of bed, I went for a hike with friends up a local mountain. I was tired when I got home but seemed fine before bed.
I woke up the next morning with severe pain down my right leg and could barely put any weight on my right side, it felt like I lost mobility in my leg and could not stand on my toes on my right side at all.
Since then, the mobility in my leg and ability to stand on my toes came back but I have been in crippling pain on and off in my lower back, hips, mid and upper back, and right shoulder and neck. Also my right glute, hamstring, and calf is extremely tight and stiff. It basically feels like I have a tight cord from the bottom of my right calf all the way up the right side of my body to the top of my neck.
My right shoulder has dropped lower than my left and my physiotherapist and I struggle to keep my hips in alignment now.
I get nerve pain and tingling in my neck, right arm, fingers, as well as right foot and toes.
All my xrays and catscans come back looking like an average middle aged spine, no obvious problem.
I've seen handfuls of therapists and been to countless dr appointments and no one has been able to completely diagnose me or cure me.
Has anyone experienced anything like this, or does anyone have any insight as to what could possibly be going on with my right side of my body!?
Im on a long waiting list for an MRI.
Thanks in advance if anyone cares to respond!
