Over the past year I have had several symptoms and seen may doctors. It first started as a headache that lasted everyday for two months. Then the headaches went away and I started having chest pains off and on. I had MRI of the brain, EKG, stress echo, stress test. Everything was normal. Then I started experiencing numbness and tingling in my hands. They would swell especially in the morning and would hurt and tingle when I would leave them in a position for a long time. I saw a Neurologist and a Rheumotologist got blood work -everything came back normal. Except I had an elevated ANA titer. Now I am experiencing numbness/tingling in my foot and leg. It started in my big toe then moved to the bottom of my foot. Now I can feel it up to my upper leg. Has anyone else had these symptoms before their diagnosis? I feel like everytime I go to a doctor they think that I am crazy or imagining things. HelpView Thread
