I just found out i have hyperthyroid and within the past 2 mos i began having panic attacks. Never had them before, scared the hell out of me. My attacks can get so bad that my arms, face, neck, chest all burn. Feels like heat from the inside out that you cant control. It can be all over or move from area to area. Feels like tingle tanning bed lotion! Definitely an anxiety symptom. Body burning is common during an axiety attack.
PLEASE have your thyroid levels checked, this is the cause of all my recent anxiety attacks, heartburn, migraines, mood swings...etc!!!!
Check the thyroid!
PCP recommended Thyroid and vitamin test, and visit to neurologist and dermatologist. Also told me that although MS is *possible* it's unlikely based on symptoms. Also felt it was NOT anxiety.
However, all evening, I've had periodic, short-duration (10 seconds or less) almost electric-shock like tingles in my big toe - sharp enough to be painful for a split second. Never had that before.
Today, the tingling has mostly subsided, but I'm a bit sore/weak feeling on my right arm and leg. It's just a percieved weakness, I actually can still do everything and lift the same weight as normal. In my leg, it almost feels more like sciatica. Perhaps a spinal stenosis since it's affecting my arm too? Almost as if whatever is afflicting me is "running it's course" or something - I otherwise feel pretty good today.
Is it possible that I have a very, very, very mild case of Guillain-Barre syndrome?
FWIW I (and my wife) self-administered several MS "tests" (get up with arms crossed, Babinski, balancing w/eyes closed, etc) and got the "normal" (no CNS damage) result on all...
Hoping for a bit more feedback here. I feel much more normal today, there has been very little tingling the last 24 hrs or so. However, I keep alternating between a mild sciatica type feeling in my right leg, and an almost weak, "urge to move" feelign in my arm - not an actual twitch as I can rest it still, but just a bit of an urge. It's only a percieved weakness, as I can still type fast, I can squeeze things just as hard (I have one of those metal hand grip thingies, forget what they're called but guys use them when they work out and I can squeeze it as usual. Still zero other problems.
BFS perhaps? Anxiety? Slight spinal stenosis or pinched nerve in neck area? Weird.
I keep convincing myself it's not MS or something else bad, but then keep reading threads here and re-convince myself that it's bad!
Another comment - I CONSTANTLY bounce my knees at my desk and at other times, more the right than the left, but I do both - always have since childhood.
Seems to "move around" a bit. The weak feeling seems to be in my right arm and leg, but sometimes the arm, sometimes the leg, sometimes both, sometimes neither, but the tingling pops up anywhere in a stocking glove distribution at random. Also had a little back pain last night that was gone in bed.
Update - tingling 99% gone - now just the tightness in both legs and one arm (seems to jump around, rarely all three at once and sometimes all three feel fine)...seems a little better overall each day.
Got my B12 tested at 407. While "in range", that's a bit on the low side, I wonder if that could be explanation for some of my symptoms esp. considering they're pretty mild.
