One of my very worst and most frightening symptoms (apart from the overwhelming tiredness & odd numbness) is the pain around my chest and upper abdomen. The first time it happened I ended up in A&E convinced I was having a heart attack! The spasming was coming in constant waves and was so bad I could hardly take a breathI
This lasted around a week before easing off and since then it comes & goes - particularly at night. It can also sometimes trigger spasms in my actual stomach - this feels like the beginning of a severe case of food poisoning but the rest of the accompanying symptoms of salmonella never come!
I regularly get an electric shock type pain that shoots around my middle - it lasts just a few seconds but is so severe that my whole body jerks up and I sometimes lose control of my bladder when it happens
I've had an ultrasound & endoscopy that were fine (apart from a small polyp in my gall bladder that they said would not cause these problems)
I was so convinced this was due to a thoracic disc prolapse - but have just been told by the spine doc that although there are 2 bulging they are not touching he spinal chord - he says it's neurological & has referred me to a neurologist to rule out MS
Does anyone else get this/had this or similar??? I'm so worried at the mo x
