Hello to the good people of the Internet world.

HELP!!! HELP!!!!!!

On Monday afternoon, my right arm and my arm leg suddenly became numb. It
is not completely paralyzed. However, it feels very numb with "pins and
needles" sensation. There is also an evidence of tremors and twitches
around the whole body. There is also significant muscle cramps and muscle
weakness  around the whole body producing a lot pain.

It is about 4 days later, the pain and  numbness sensation has moved
towards my head and my left arm.

I went to the Emergency room on Monday in New Jersey. My doctors are
telling me that catscan is negative. All of the blood work is also
negative. However, the problem is still continuing with no end in site. My
physicians have scheduled an MRI for Saturday morning to rule out
Guille-Barr Disease and other miscellaneous diseases.On Wednesday, I saw
the specialist-Neurologist. After his physical evaluation, he did not find
anything wrong.

What could be causing it? Could this be muscle problem,nervous system
problem or a virus.

Just a little bit about myself. I am very hard and energetic worker. I am
26 years old and specialize in advanced technology: internet,multimedia
and wireless. I don't have any serious problems besides Crohn's disease.
My doctors are treating me for Crohns with Asacol. (I stopped Asocol last

Please give me any suggestion. I am in a lot of pain. 

Thanks much,

New Jersey
