Dear all, just want to share what i feel for past 5 years. I started with my anxiety after a hard stress and on the 3rd stressful month I started to feel : tingling, blurred vision, dry eyes, twitching of all the body, muscle cramps swollen tongue and many other which I don't remember now...but all symptoms came in 2 months period. i didn't go to neurologist right away but wait maybe 1 year with present symptoms : I did MRI (and second of the spin after 2 years then it started) I also did a EMG for a weak left arm (i had power but felt like its not mine)
Five years later I feel almost the same symptoms as slight tingling of the limbs, titme to time dry eyes and the worst i have perceived right arm and leg weakness since 6-7 months with no tingling just feeling they arent mine :?
This freaked me out and i'm thinking again to visit neurologist for MRI, my biggest nightmare is having MS... :(
Last summer i got 2,3 times overheating with no sweat, but not with highest temperatures(for example I was ok with 40C but not good at 30C ?, no problems with hot showers and sauna as well....until now)
What do you think ? Could it be anxiety or I have to meet the neurologist again :(
Hi Nokia -
One thing I have learned, anyone can develop anxiety attacks at any time. But they are not final nor fatal. I have had them since I was a child - not that I knew that then! Now I am medicated and I haven't had anything I would call an 'episode' for so long now I really can't recall. Have you had your thyroid checked - just an idea. When mine stopped working years ago, I experienced a lot of symptoms typically associated with true anxiety. Personally, to err on the side of caution, I would go back to your physician, have a honest heart to heart and together determine what the next course of action should be! I am wishing you the very best - Take care and stay in touch!
