Most of that to date has past But I canont get rid of the following:

Can last any where between a few hours and a few days.
Still sensation of burning arms shins feet hands
Any idea what and how to get rid.

Hi,

This sounds like some sort of neuropathy, but I'm not in the medical profession. The pin-pricking sensations and other things you feel that come and go sounds like what people with MS have. This is a hard condition to diagnose! Maybe do some internet research on multiple sclerosis and neuropathy and see if anything rings any bells. Please don't panic, even if it is MS check out a Dr. Swank who has some great options that may reverse the disease.



ahh err who is Dr. Swank? nmi

Hi, Ray.

Listen to "neuropathy". This is called hypesthesia or paresthesia. Look up the words.

There are tests that measure the conduction of nerves in your extremities. If your docs have not done that, you need better docs.

The swelling sounds like angioneurotic edema which often acompanies neurological stuff like this.

Let us know what you find out.

He's a doc who came up with a special diet that helps MS patients go into remission. I was able to find this if you're interested:

I had symptoms like that from taking too much vitamin B6. I stopped taking it and the symptoms stopped. If you aren't taking B6 are you by any chance eating a lot of bananas? They contain the highest amount of B6 from a natural food source. Walnuts are pretty high in B6 too. Sometimes too much vitamin B1 will produce the same result. Could also be an essential fatty acid deficiency if you're living on the standard Brit fare of overcooked to the bone. I've also heard of odd neuropathies happening when a person was eating a primarily vegetarian/vegan diet. The neuropathies vanished after switching to an animal protein (either raw or not overcooked) and egg-containing diet. Any car accidents in the past? If you've had one, or even if you haven't, a full spinal MRI is in order. Get thee to a neurologist and demand the MRI. Don't take no for an answer. Best of luck. And no bananas.

R.L. Swank, MD is the only researcher who has a 50 year continuous diet to show results in MS patients.
