For many months now I have been suffering with balance issues. I have suffered many moderate/light injuries in recent months. My gp had initially dxed weakness, but sent me for head ct, which was clear, and to a neurologist, who said no not weakness but no dx. Took many tests to no avail. Finally in past months has really progressed to the point I agree with dx of weakness. I feel so sad about this dx, as I have worked so hard on my body's strength due too much sickness in my youth. At the same time I feel so grateful that it wasn't brain cancer because u know that was what I was thinking even though the head scan was clear. I have begun to experience this same weakness in my arms after working physically. I am ready to start whatever treatment is necessary to get me moving forward and to be rid of these issues. I am still very physically active. I am just so happy to finally have a conclusion.
I do believe that the weakness in my hips and Knees is due to nerve damage in my leg due to radiation damage, but I cannot say about why it is developing in my arms.
I feel it is important to document our symptoms and dx here to help others down the road. I am not just coming here for sympathy and support, that is just icing on the cake. This site helped me so much thru all of this, much more than any doctor. Although I did not post then, I hung on every line written here because it all applied to me. For anyone out there we are here for you!
