Hi there,

On Thursday morning I had to make several trips to the bathroom with semi-diarrhea.

Later in the afternoon I started feeling a little nausea. My left foot, arm and cheek then felt a bit numb, and I assumed I was having a migraine, although I didn't have any blurry vision as I normally do.

I decided to sleep it off for an hour. When I awoke, I felt a bit better, but my foot was tingly, and I could feel it vibrate slightly when I walked.

Since then I've got a bit better, but don't feel I've made a full recovery. I'm struggling with my appetite, have to make a couple of toilet trips in the morning, am tired, and have this weird spaced out feeling, as if I'm ever so slightly detached from reality. I think my hands, and maybe feet, tingle now and then, but I'm not sure if that's my imagination or not.

I can still walk the dog, go the shops, etc, but I still don't quite feel right and I'm having trouble concentrating on my work.

Is this situation familiar to anyone else? I've booked an appointment with the doctor, but they can't fit me until Friday, so any advice would be great. The spaced out feeling is particularly nagging.

I don't know much about it, but this reminded me of Multiple Sclerosis...

It could just as easily be a common viral infection or mild food poisoning.

Have you eaten any mushrooms lately. I seem to remember the symptoms you describe are similar to some I heard about connected with fungi poisoning.

If it isn't getting better after a week it is a cause for concern. If it gets worse I suggest you don't accept your doctor's "easy answer number one" if he is that sort of doctor.

Good luck!
