 bzee91zsuzsa - Thu Mar 16, 2006 4:57 pm

Hypothydroidis, hernia - adopted. No family history.
Pasted erlier in regards to lack of sentation in feet that started last may in right foot. Now it has moved on to other foot. second to last toe, i can feel it going.
Other problems. Terrible leg pain, starting from thighs down to my feet. The worst when I have walked alot or sat. Hands and feet get ice cold at night, somethimes its just one side, right, or left or both. knees hurt sometimes.
Weekness in legs, like jello- I've tripped on stairs, sidewalks,escalators, etc. when this happens, Almost as if I can't control them.
Talked to my thyriod doc, she didn't say anything about it. need help. don't wanna lose my legs.
