I have been watching the forum for awhile, and get a lot of info from it, and have posted a couple of time's, and now is probably decision time, have had the c for about 30 years, dx 2 years ago, my vl was 13,000,000 a year ago, now 5,000,000 but from what I have read probably not relevent, grade 2 stage 2, I quit drinking a year ago after finding out I had diabettis also, lost 40 lbs, my feet and toes have been bothering me for awhile, and found out it was neuropathy, my number's have gotten be
I now have to have C3-4 down to L5 done due to more bone degeneration (I've been a Brittle Type 1 Insulin Dependent Diabetic since 2/23/1967 and also had radiation treatment for breast cancer 1998). After many years of trying different medications including a spinal cord stimulator (which failed due to too much nerve damage), my Pain Specialist finally came up with a comination that worked. Since 6/13/2001, I have been on some kind of opiate for pain.
I think that if you research home cooked diet or dog food for diabetic dogs, you'll find some good alternatives to Hills, I'm personally not a fan of Hills dog food, they use preservatives BHA, BHT and ETHOXYQUIN that cause cancer in dogs. You can find some recipes in this book: Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets: the Healthful Alternative. Donald R. Strombeck, DVM. Iowa State University Press. ISBN 0813821495, you might be able to get it from the public library or a used book from Amazon.
Have you had him tested for diabetes? Diabetic neuropathy CAN be responsible for this type of thing, and even though he is young, he can still be diabetic. It might be worth mentioning it to his vet. Please continue to post and let us know how he is doing. In the meantime, I will pick the brains of several of my veterinary friends to see if they have anything to offer.
You have too many sensory symptoms happening for it to be just peripheral, like diabetic neuropathy in my opinion. The nystagmus (words jumping on the menu) , the strange sensations (feelings of 'wetness'), the running into walls, these are not part of neuropathy. This would be more indicative of MS as apparently your MRI has shown. I don't know much about strokes, but I doubt these are symptoms of stroke. Yea, judge!
I bought a blood glucose monitor and tested my blood sugar in case this was diabetic neuropathy, Levels came back normal after several tests. I can understand a tingling or burning sensation if you are suddenly jolted into flight or fight response..but for it to linger for months and months like this? It is miserable living like this, I dread this is the rest of my life, with feet that buzz and tingle with every step.
In my opinion, I would ask the neurologist who told you that your tests came back normal if there is anything that he can do to help you with the pain while you are waiting to see the doctor about your joints. We have here what they call pain clinics and I know a friend of mine with diabetic neuropathy has found great results in working with them. You may have something like that within your healthcare system and not be aware of it but your doctor may.

These sensations are called paresthesias and are a neurologic symptom. Neuropathy can cause this. Almost all of these sensations have resolved since antibiotic treatment for lyme disease.
It can cause the skin to become so sensitive that one can experience intense pain and pricking or a tingling sensation, even when the skin is touched gently. Diabetic neuropathy, which is a complication of diabetes, could also be a contributory factor. Fibromyalgia, the condition which is associated with heightened painful response to pressure, can also cause allodynia.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity.

All the physicians and experts that she met told her that it was impossible to be due to the Interferon treatment, but before the treatment, all went well. She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ?
prior to new year my spouse was very successful business owner of 30+ yrs,which unfortunately has changed a lot of whether I see my doctor 1x month or quarterly. I come in peach,so that my particular treatment of FM is the best I can for now. Thanks all so much for ur advice,don't stop,we all need to learn & the only stupid question,is not asking it......
I was so fascinated by the number of people who suffer with gastroparesis. I have diabetic gastroparesis. I have been diabetic for 34 years and developed this disorder 6 years ago. I had surgery on my hands and developed a complication called neuropathy. There are a couple of kinds. One is where you can't feel anything, like in your feet(that is why there are so many foot and leg amputations.) Some diabetics can't feel if they have a soar.
I have been taking some natural detox for the blood in pills form, I was feeling ok but last nite and this morning my hands started up again but not terrible that i want to rip them off, it's more of a burning irritating itch that is under the skin, no rash no dry skin and it tends to be activated when I do things like opening a soda bottle top or holding the retractable lead for the dogs...
Anxiety is free floating and depression occurs at least once every day for an hour or so. I am quick to snap at my wife and our dogs. I have the shortest fuse. The smallest annoyances set me off. I can hardly focus on my work, but manage through it. I have little motivation to exercise (although few people do), but manage to do 3 days a week of cardio (45 minutes) and 5 days a week of weightlifting. Exercise helps significantly, but I don't have time for any more than I already do.
And he hasn't even tried to do anything for the diabetic neuropathy in my legs and feet. Hurt so bad can't hardly walk sometimes. It's amazing that so many of us manage to work, have a house and family. Think what we could do if we weren't so pain challeneged! Take care all. Good night.
I've researched EVERYTHING and have a specialist doctor who says everything from neuropathy to tumor in spine. I've had the MRIs and x-rays and shock reflex test etc...DONT waste your money!!! (results all say nothing's there) I am overweight but dont think that's the problem. I've been on pain meds for 6 years and then this numbness/burning/itching bullsh*t hit me and it feels like a blood vessel has popped and it trickling hot blood just under my thigh tissue right above my knee.
the heat i produce from exercise makes me sick being outside in this fine alabama heat and humidity kill me i often feel like i have fever-no fever, my body temp is messed up or something-often have head in the oven feeling neurothapy in feet-(dx neuro) i am not diabetic and yes i need to loose some weight as i have put on 50 lbs.
In February of 06 I began experiencing symptoms which have now been diagnosed as Pyridoxine (b6) Toxicity Induced Neuropathy. I did not get this diagnosis until August 15, after four MRIs, several specialists and balance testing. My b6 blood level was 81 - the maximum safe level in this test was 32. When reading about b6 toxicity one reads about tingling hands and feet and being "wobbly on your feet" and things of that nature. It can be much more than that. Be careful with Vitamin b6.
It stopped for a day and has been fairly constant since. My neurologist says I have peripheral neuropathy and put me on gabapentin. I have been on it for the past 3 yrs. I just had an MRI and I have had several CTscans etc. NOTHING!! This is so debilitating. The chest pain is horrific and feels like something is trying to tear my chest apart. Extreme heaviness is my arms but seems to affect the left arm a bit more than the right.
After doing further research, this could be a sign of diabetes or neuropathy diabetes (or something like that). My mother was a borderline diabetic so this is a possibility for me. Guess I'm going to get checked for that. Just thought I'd let y'all know what it could be.
It took the doctors years to figure out what it was since there is no test for it and there is no cure either. There is only treatment, and everyone is different. I seem to have fibromyalgia worse than most.It effects my legs and arms more than the rest of my body. I can not remember the last time I was able to go a day without being in extreme pain. I have to take pain meds daily and my quality of life sucks!! If you do think it may be fibromyalgia, please visit the site www.fibrohugs.com.
and right now - doing all this typing - the ends of my fingers are hurting (note - i do have peripheral neuropathy BUT it has been in the ends of my fingers and feet from diabetes and other spinal nerve damage - this itching, burning, take the skin off intensity is developing/progressing and not the same, IMHO. ALSO - when i had laparascopic surgeries they used the skin glue - which also caused INTENSE long-lasting itching at the sites.
I'm 41 years old non-smoker No history of migranes Current headaches (again, docs say stress induced but I have mine 80-90% of time). Has anyone had success with a Home treatment? (heat? ice?other)?
I am two weeks into Doxycycline treatment that will last a month and will follow-up from there. It's a scary yet positive prognosis as with the right doctors I can most likely be treated aggressively and reduce the symptoms I feel on a daily basis. Thank you for reading my story.
I have allergy-induced asthma and inhale Asmanex once a day. That treatment seems to help one type of cough which I can easily live with. From time to time if I contract bronchitis, which I'm currently taking an antibiotic for, my cough is different, with plenty of phlegm (I also suffer from post nasal drip.) But the worst cough is the Tickle Throat Cough. If my suggestion above is tried by anyone and it helps, please let us all know. Good luck.
(more info. with SYMPTOMS / CAUSES / DIAGNOSES / TREATMENT etc.) http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/articles/article.aspx?articleId=375 We all experience a very fine tremor all the time we are awake as our body goes about its daily functions. This will be the slight tremor you see when you put out your hands for example. It is known as physiological tremor and is normal. From time to time, this everyday level of tremor can increase so that it becomes more noticeable.
