    Default Something weird happened

    Okay something really weird happened last night. Lately I have been getting this pain in my legs and back, but not like a regular pain it's more list a pressure and numb feeling then I get this weak shaky feeling. Okay so last night I was walking from my kitchen to my living room and that happened again then it got progressively worse. I stopped to lean on the counter and was trying to make it to the couch but it hurt so bad I couldn't keep standing and I just dropped. I just sat on the floor and it kept getting worse but it changed to something that scared me. I turned to just my whole right side, my leg, back, arm, and shoulder. Now I did manage to get to the couch. My movements on the right side felt lethargic and swollen compared to the other side. Visibly nothing was swollen in fact when I compared my feet my left foot was slightly red and swollen, which is normal, and the other one was normal size but pale,well paler than my normal paleness. Now im used to aches and pains but this just felt different and wrong. Eventually it went away but took a lot longer than normal. I know I need to go to the doctor but I just don't have the money for it so i'm just venting what happened. Has anything like this happened to anyone?

    See a doctor ASAP. You have described some neuro 'red flag' symptoms there, especially having all this happen to just one side of your body.

    Best wishes
    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by a-holes.

    You really need to see a doctor as soon as you can

    Mica,
    I agree with the others - get to a doctor and describe this.
    I often have spasms that pull me down, but I can usually isolate it to the one offending muscle, two at the most. If one whole side of my body did it at once, I would be very worried.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    I would go to the hospital, if I were you. Even if you don't have money, I believe the county ones, at least, have to stabilize you before releasing you. Do you have any County hospitals near you? I may be wrong, but I think they have to take everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
