I am having a tingling sensation on both legs, slightly swollen, and a little weakness on legs. I went to the ER EKG normal, protein heart blood test, negative, blood clot test negative. White count cell normal. Have been to the ER 5 times already, all the same. This started right after my endoscopy on 2/23/2018. The day after. However, A week prior I had been having severe burning pain on my upper stomach due to acid reflux, it wasn’t going up my esophagus tho, I was sleeping with my back a little elevated or on my side ways to avoid reflux. The GI Doctor did my endoscopy recently on 2/23/2018. I was put to sleep, they gave me an IV and injected anesthesia. Took about 20-30 minutes. The next day around 9:30pm, I began having a throbbing chronic back pain on my upper back going to the back of my head, I felt numbness on my back and back of my neck and head, my resting heart rate went up to 114.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i want to reassure you that the back pain is not cancer. It may be just a muscle spasm as all of your work up is normal and all you need is some rest, some muscle relaxants and some low doses of pain Killers. Physiotherapy and massage can also be tried. Cancer is a remote and least common condition and should not be applied every time you get some pain somewhere in your body.

Take care
