Neurological - please answer
Aug 18, 2006

I have paresthesia for over 4 months. This happened after I caught a cold which lasted about a week. These pricking/crawling sensations are all over my body including my face/back/butt/thighs. The bottom of my foot feels like it is vibrating. The sensations go from one place to another within seconds.When I stratch with my fingers they tingle and then the feeling goes away. I have been to two neurlogists that did just the physical exam, and checked for for all auto immune diseases and all cell counts. They say I have all my reflexes, and strength and it is anxiety. They put me on effexor but these sensations are still there. I beg them to do tests for my nerves and my back and they won't. Could this be related to anxiety or is the neuropathy. Please advise I can't take this anymore...I am miserable
