Cause for spasm, pain in extremities, headache, INSOMNIA.

Resolved Question:

So! For the past six months or so I've been experiencing the oddest array of symptoms. I've decided to add in all symptoms as they arose. For three months (about June-August), I had a headache that only went away with Advil and that was only for about 30 minutes. Since I can remember I have had neck spasms along with spasms in my arms and legs (jolting type spasms for extremities), which also go along with major stiffness. I don't know if to add it around here, but there have been some pretty frequent bladder issues. For the past week or two, I've been experiencing some newer and more annoying symptoms such as constant (or chronic) lightheadedness, like when you feel like you'll faint but you never do. This came in with the tingles in all extremities which can go from the sleepy arm ordeal to stabby pains. Along with this, there are smaller problems like anxiety, middle ear issues, and insomnia. Now, I'm all for connecting all of these because they seem to come and go with one another. But my primary doctor is set on me just having a lactic acid build up, which for me doesn't make any sense. So my question is: What does all of this mean? Is it a small spinal issue or am I going to be in some trouble here? No past medical of diabetes or hypertension. Only allergy is to bees. Smoke 1/2 pack a day. Only surgery was getting my wisdom teeth out last year.

Thank you for posting your query at
I have noted your symptoms and I feel you deserve a good evaluation to determine the underlying cause.
Initially, we could do serum levels for vitamin B12 and D levels, thyroid profile, calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood.
In addiiton, we should also do an MRI scan of brain and spinal cord.
It is possible that you have a tendency for migraine.
However, with the investigations, we need to exclude deficiency of vitamin B12 or D. Also, lack of blood supply to brain and demyelinating illness such as multiple sclerosis needs to be excluded.
I hope it helps.
Best wishes,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar MD (Medicine), DM (Neurology)
