Anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms and signs is a diagnosis of exclusion, that is, other reasonable tests to exclude medical conditions need to be done first.
A 'stomach' flu may have been a viral illness - symptoms of headache,tingling, rash occur relatively commonly as a result of a 'post-viral' syndrome/bodys reaction to the virus. It is usually self-limiting after a few weeks. Headaches after a viral infection are caled 'aseptic meningitis' - there is evidence of irritation in the spinal fluid, but no actual infectious organisms. Medication or some infectiosn like strep can trigger psoariasis and produce a widespread red scaly rash even in someone who has not had psoriasus before. Other possibilities might include migraine, drug side effects, or a type of allergic reaction. I don't think Wellbutrin is the answer
If you have not seen a dermatologist and you still have the rash, you should see one. Persistent symptoms might warrant further investigation with blood tests for allergies, inflammation, MRI or spinal fluid analysis.
Hi. Suggest you look at Lyme Disease and Hashimoto's - all your symptoms sound very familiar to me!
Doubt it's Hashimoto's, Don't have most the symptoms.
Had a full physical in November and all blood work was normal, tsh etc. then. Current doctor is going off of that.
Did you have either one?
Thank you for your response.
I did forget to mention that I had a pain in the base of my neck. It too has improved, but does come back on occasion. (I feel like I need to crack it).
Doctor #2 will not do any tests or refer me until I have been on this dose of wellbutrin for 1 month as she feels its all anxiety related.
What do you think?
Hey. I am new to this Forum. I am a 23 year old female. I have a Varicose Vein I was told and am waiting on an appointment to go see a Vein Specialist. When I see him I am asking for an MRI of my leg, to make sure I don't have a more serious vein problem. But for the past few days, I've been having symptoms on my hands and feet, tingling, burning and occasional itching. And sometimes it goes all over my body. I'd like some insight please. I am really scared. I have never had these symptoms before. I am very depressed and scared because of this Vein Problem, that it's getting to me! Please any input would be great.
Thank you for your response. The redness I have is not a rash. No flaking, scaling, gray, itching etc. Its just red. The day the Dr. doubled the wellbutrin My scalp turned red and flushed and following that my neck, chest and face. Since its been reduced again all the redness has improved (not gone)and no more flushing. (I researched and flushing is a rare side effect of wellbutrin, its in their literature)I also have had random twitching since starting it.
Most of the other symptoms are gone, no more headaches, dizziness, etc. The only thing I still have on occasion is the tingling, which had gone away.
The doctor won't take me off of wellbutrin until I've tried it for a straight month at the same dose. She also won't consider anything else until then. Should I be concerned?
