Sciatica : You may have a condition called sciatica which occurs when the nerve going to your leg is pinched as it comes out of the spine to give the pain down the leg and back. Have your primary care doctor check it out to make sure your leg muscles are not getting weaker because of the nerve problem. This doctor can refer you to the appropriate specialist you need to see. Please get this checked out. ...Read more

Right arm nerve(?) pain last 5 days from elbow to pinky, more pain than tingling/numbness, left ankle has buzzing feeling on/off like blood flowing..?

Thots: Regarding right arm, sounds like possible nerve compression at elbow, consistent with a cubital tunnel syndrome affecting the ulnar nerve. Left ankle issue very nonspecific, and unable to interpret without more information. Best to see your doctor and get both addressed. ...Read more

The pain and numbness in one arm and leg could suggest a neurologic system. This is why you should take this to your physician. ...Read more

My left ankle broke 2 years ago. And when i run now, it cracks all the time, and my left shin can go numb or hurt. The more i go run more setbacks.?

Depends: If your ankle fracture resulted in widening of your ankle joint it can cause wearing of the cartilage. Thinning it out causing ankle joint to collapse. X-rays can assess this. Because of instability it can cause stress on the shin and posterior tibial tendon. You may need to be measured for orthotics to stabilize your ankle. If arthritic you may bike or swim or do elliptical machine. ...Read more

I've had 3 MRI scans and all where normal, could i still have ms, I have bad clonus of the left ankle, I do have other symptoms of ms?

I've had 3 MRI scans and all where normal, could i still have ms, I have bad clonus of the left ankle, I do have other symptoms of ms?

MRI: Mri does not diagnose ms. Your doctor (neurologist) will put all the pieces together and give you a diagnosis. Have you had a spinal tap? There is lab work that would still need to be done. Lastly, ms has many forms, and many presentations. http://msassociation.org/about_multiple_sclerosis/commontypes/. ...Read more

My MRI scans are normal but I have weakness down left side and clonus in left ankle, I have all symptoms of MS but doctor won't do spinal tap?

My MRI scans are normal but I have weakness down left side and clonus in left ankle, I have all symptoms of MS but doctor won't do spinal tap?

Neurologist: I am presuming you are seeing a neurologist for this level of problem. If your MRI scans are totally normal that would make ms unlikely.... If your symptoms are stable and not changing/ moving that also makes it unlikely. See a neurologist or, if you already have, see another for a second opinion. ...Read more
