I was like you. Years later putting together things that happened...not even reporting them to a doctor. My first sign was hot burning feet. The next a burning thigh. I did see my family doctor on that issue. He suggested a neuro and I didn't follow up. The next was exactly what is happening to you. I began freezing in place unable to move. It happened in the middle of a shopping center...as I was paying for a purchase. Another time on a ladder and unable to move. It happened again at work and an employee of mine insisted I go to the hospital where nothing was diagnosed.
It wasn't until my right foot would never cooperate that I began to worry and seek medical attention. None could find a thing wrong. Then the horrid backache that felt like a raw open nerve. With that I began seeking specialists after specialist.
May I suggest, asking that new neuro for a 3t of your spine. A l.5t usually doesn't show spinal lesions well. I have but one small lesion on my brain. My first neuro chalked it up to age. He had a spinal MRI done on a 1.5 t and nothing showed. I sat three and one half years under the idiot losing a great deal of my body strength. Please make sure you are using a high powered enough machine to see lesions on the spine. JMO
Thank you both so much for your input! I'm goin' to a new, non-quack, Dr. on Jan. 18th and hopefully she'll get the ball rolling to do the spinal MRI and see what goes.
take care and be blessed,
