Hiya. I'm sorry you're having a tough time right now. Anyone would be anxious and upset.

I'm not sure that I understand completely about work...Are you not allowed to take any sick days, or you have you used up all your sick days? Do they allow for any extra days if your doctor says you must take the time off? (I'd check into that and also make sure you're doctor can give you a note to stay off work.)

Whatever might be causing the symptoms, you need the thorough investigation by your doc(s), and I'm really glad you're getting it done. Only the doc(s) will be able to figure out what you have and what course of action you need to follow. Perhaps you can call the doc's office and say you are concerned about returning to work when you're still having symptoms, and see what the doc suggests.

I'll be thinking of you.

This could be from a number of things. A neurologist will very likely be able to figure out what is wrong even if those other tests came back normal. When do you see the specialist?

Are you getting an MRI of your brain??

Have you had any other problems with this. Did you fall and hit your head?

A spinal problem can cause it, you could just have a problem with the nerve in your leg, worse case, it could be MS or a stroke.

Try not to worry. They'll get you better.
