    Ok and after loosing 65 pounds by lifting I started noticing an electric jolt through my muscles when I coughed. Figured I just over did it and kept going on after a break but now for the last 2 months I have felt the following.
    Numb skin on my back pelvis and legs. When touched it feels like pins and needles. Numb cold feet and loss of muscle control to a small degree in my legs.
    I am on week #3 of Chiropractor twice a week who feels I have trapped or pinched nerves in my spine and Glutes.
    I have a G.P appointment next week but wondering if anyone has ever gone through this and what it turned out being.
    No I'm not asking on the internet for a diagnosis so no point on flaming........LOL

    Going for the first of 3 MRI's tomorrow then an appointment with a Neurologist.
    Possibilities that have been thrown around are Meningioma or ruptured disks.
    So I guess I will see.

    Thanks, It would be really nice.
    Wanted to make people aware in case it happened to them.
    Just really want to get back to the gym full swing again.
