Also I like to add an example. When I went to see a neurologist it got little worse because i was scared. When he told me he believes it is all anxiety, the symptoms reduced. When I don't worry (but i always worry as I have Gen. Anxiety Disorder) then I feel almost normla.
One last thing I forgot to add.
When they talk about Paresthesia they often mention pins and needles. In my case it is like electrical nerve itching/feeling. Also gets a bit worse when I quit antidepressants cold turkey but it is fine when I wean off slowly.
I apologize for writing 4 posts in a row but in case a doctor reads this I need to mention that when this problem started I was feeling as completely paralyzed. Other symptom I forgot to mention is sexual dysfunction but I don't know if it is related as I seem to have chronic prostatitis and antidepressants cause ED.
I have no other problems like muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing etc. I am in better shape now regarding this Peripheral problem than I was 10 years ago despite not being physically active.
I was told that parasthisa can result in anxiety and it went away, now i have firboymalgia.cfs and parastheisa hurts so bad the tears roll out of my eyes.
In answer to your question in my opinion-Yes.
The consequence of physical vibrations hitting your ear drums( focusing on the physics of that word -drum) and shaking the neurons in your brain to produce high levels of adrenaline I would imagine would cause an effect throughout the body-perhaps the word for that sensation could be called paresthesias and is usually associated with the emotion fear.
Soothe the nerves is a physical way and you are doing that through massage. Basically I concur with you and your logical question and observation.
