constant tingling

Posted By joy on July 23, 1999 at 09:50:43
For six weeks I have had tingling which started in my left leg, then two weeks later spread to my right leg. After left leg began tingling, I had lower back pain. Two days ago my hands spontaneously when numb, then spread to basically my whole body, including mouth and groin area. I went to see a neuologist, who after a physical exam determinied that I was having panic attacks, although he agreed to to Vep Baer and EMG so I would be convinced I didn't have MS. I have had a high level of anxiety this year as well as pretty severe depression. He prescribed klonopin. Now a week later, back pain is gone, as well as most tingling except for constant pins and needles feeling in hands and a "vibration" feeling in feet. It seems unusual to me that anxiety could cause symptoms that last this long, but my doctor says be patient. ALso he says a neurological disease would not have started in my legs and moved upwards. Is this true? I don't have any other symptoms, except long-term migrating joint pain and fatigue ( no weakness). Is my doctor taking me seriously? Could all this tingling be caused by anxiety and could he determine this after a physical exam? Should I insist on an MRI? What is the likelyhood that this is MS? Could Chronic Fatigue casue tingling?  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
