I am a 46 year old female experiencing all over body tingling, burning/coldness, itching, pulling and some numbness (limbs falling asleep). Most prevalent in hands, feet, legs and feet but have had feeling in face, lips and trunk of body. I also have shaky hands sometimes. It all started about 3 months ago after a trip to Tahiti. Symptoms started as what I thought was a yeast infection, burning, tingling itching. Tested for everything, all came back negative. I have genital herpes but no active infection. The itch spread all over my body and experience a flushing of the skin and my palms are frequently red and mottled. Doctor thought I had chronic hives so put me on atarax for one month. That seemed to cause some bladder frequency/retention problems. I am off the atarax as I am awaiting to see an allergist. I have Hepatitis C, but all liver tests have come back normal. I also have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, but am told thyroid is normal. Red Blood Count of 4.01 and B12 is 490. I am awaiting results on Syphilis test and folate. I also have a vitamin D deficiency of 25. Diabetes ruled out also. Saw a neorologist she said did not sound like MS but ordered an EMG test. I am waiting to see a rhuemetologist and allergist this week. I know this is a crazy list of symptoms.
I am scared to death and am becoming dysfunctional in my daily life. Can this be caused by anxiety or what else could this be? Before all this started, I was very happy, had a great vacation and my job/life is generally good. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many, many thanks
