Restless legs? Raynaud's?

  • By MommaCin

    Hi again,
    I have still not been diagnosed..saw a new neurologist on Thursday…he would not even give me a clue what he was thinking until he looked at my previous MRI.. did some blood work to rule out some stuff and talked about maybe needing a nerve test and a spinal MRI…

    He confirmed I have a balance disorder and chronic migraine…
    I can not stand with eyes closed
    in scraping the bottom of my right foot (primary says it’s foot drop) it hurt and my toes did funny spreading..idk what that means.
    He mentioned raynauds(?sp) maybe the cause of my cold hands and feet turning blue…but he wasn’t sure
    Primary diagnosed restless leg syndrome now has me on meds…it isn’t helping so much.
    The zoloft leaves me feeling like a zombie.
    The not sleeping, waking up to potty or legs cramping sucks….oh and the flipping drool……sigh

    Is restless leg and raynauds part of ms or other issues…do you get those issues with a history of migraines?

    Usually I love to stand in the sun to warm my feet and my bones…we hit 89 the other day here, I was so lethargic and wiped out after doing nothing!…I’m guessing that is part of ms? Or do you get that with migraine damage in the brain?

    This is so frustrating and confusing…
    I feel for everyone here dealing with this.
    I’m beginning to think my mom is right, I’m a hypochondriac and it’s all in my head.

    I am sorry you are still searching for an accurate diagnosis, MommaCin. I know that must be incredibly frustrating. It does sound like it may require additional tests to get more information. I know that may not be appealing, as no one really enjoys medical tests. Don’t be afraid to keep pushing for answers. I know you may be weary of the process, but it does sound like something is going on. I will say that you can also check out our sister site for people living with migraines. You may found some answers there, as well as here — https://migraine.com/.

    Please continue to keep us posted on how you are doing, if you would like. And I hope you get some relief very soon!
