I couldn't find anything on this unless I didn't look hard enough or completely missed it.
I was wondering if Neurological problems come along with AI diseases? For the past couple of weeks my legs and my feet have been twitching. Sometimes small ones, sometimes big ones that move my whole leg or foot. I am STILL (yes, still), waiting to see a new specialist...But I'm just wondering if this is AI related or something else.
I did have a CAT scan in May and found that my spine is really worn out and a disc is pushing on a nerve, so could that maybe be causing it instead? I just find it weird, and it can be rather uncomfortable at times as well as embarressing.


Oh no, I just realized I hit the wrong section when I went to post this! I meant to hit the one above this lol....Please move this!

Hi Hunniebun,

There's several Neurological problems which can be connected to A1 Diseases. eg Seizure's/Parkinson's Diseases besides Tremor's or it may be to do with your spine.

I'm adding this link about Tremors concerning legs and other parts of the body as it may be something which may help.

www.ninds.nih.gov › Disorders A - Z › Tremor (Type in Tremors in the search button)

Hi Hunnie,
Since you already know that you have a disc problem, that could be what is causing it. My hubby had to have disc surgery. It caused a compression on his sciatic nerve and caused numbness and problems all the way down his leg. The surgery fixed it nicely.
That said, AI issues can also cause tremors, spasms and neuropathy. I have all of the above, and it seems to come from having Sjogren's.
I hope that you see the new specialist soon and that he can sort this out.
Hugs,
Marla

Giggle good point mate but the trouble is Hunnibun may have it concerning her spine...i actually think loads could be guessed on Hunnibuns condition but to make double sure, she needs to see her consultant but what member's have said is a good out look for her besides.

Yeah I don't think its restless leg syndrome because of the problem I have with my spine. I was told that my back isn't bad enough to need surgery, which I find annoying because the pain has NOT changed, it is still there, I still get numb if I sit down for more than an hour. All I am ever told is "take this" or "take that". So sick and tired of pills...But then I start feeling like a weirdo when I have to ASK for surgeries to get done.
I out in a referral to a GREAT doctor that my counselor see's at the Arthritis Centre of Canada in Vancouver,, so I REALLY REALLY hope that I get in and am able to see her, and to for once have someone that actually studies these diseases as a career, and listens to what I say about how I feel.

Thanks Gem,

My back hurts every day, but it feels like it's less these days, and I think that's because I've adapted to it. The leg twitches still happen daily, multiple times though I haven't counted.
I'm just waiting with fingers crossed that I'll be able to see the doctor that I want to see.

Sorry to hear the pains still niggling at you mate but as soft as it sounds sometimes with certain pain you can adjust, it's like my hips hurt me i'm used to it in one way but it's the locking that i seem to struggle with.

I do wish you all the best though concerning that specialist to get down to the twitching of your legs because that must be so irritating and trying to control it but please keep we updated and thank you so much for getting back to us.
