Back ache, head ache, numbness in face

At least once a week I will get a back ache accompanied by headache and numbness in the face. It will last up to an hour and then go away. The back pain is in the lower back and the headache is in my temples. The numbness at first was only on one side of my chin, but now seems to include all of my chin. At times I have experienced bouts of sciatica like symptons. Now I just get a hitch in my hip. I am not overweight and am 38. Any ideas?

I would look at two possibilities: mercury toxicity and gut wall infection. You need to find a doc familiar with investigating these problems. The test to diagnose mercury toxicity is the DMPS challenge. No other test will get the job done. A plain mercury level is worthless. The test for parasites is the Dry Blood Cell Analysis. A plain microscopic exam will not do the job. These two items can both cause bizarre symptoms such as yours.
