Three weeks ago I got headaches and sporadical tingling in muscles and the urethra. I got very concerned, but the doctor said that it was a common viral infection and that the symptoms would go away in a few days. Then the headache diminished and the tingling disappeared. So, I went to the gym for doing 30 min. cardio, also as an anti-anxiety measure. Later that night I got instensive FASCICULATIONS in my legs (thighs and calves), arms, back, more rarely in my abs and other parts. After 4 days the doctor checked me and found fasciculations also in my tongue and a light headache remained. The neurologist ordered basic blood tests and made physical exploraton. He did not find any abnormality, but the TWITCHING was so intense, the they typed it with my permit). I was very concerned because in my left tight the fasciculations were more frequent and larger and I felt numbness-weakness. They only made basic blood test and neurological physical exploration. When I get anxious the fasciculations increase. After more than 2 weeks I still feel weakness in my legs, the fasciculaions remain. NO medicine has been prescribed to me, just a new checking after a month.
I want to diminsh my level of anxiety, to put away the weakness in my legs. By close experience in life I know that these symptons do not describe ALS, but particularly the first days I thought a lot of it. Can a virus cause all these symptoms? Can be all this caused by anxiety? Maybe other reason like thyroid disbalance etc?
Thanks for your comments.
