I have strange sensations on my hands and feets like burning, buzzing, electrical current, and crawling. It is not concentrated on the same spot as they move around and changes its' form. The level of intensity of the sensations varies as well. One moment, I can have level 7/10 electrical current on my fourth and pinky finger then later level 4/10 burning on my palm. However, the main area where it happens is on my left hand and right foot. Due to this, my daily activities can only function at about 70% as I'm in discomfort most of the time. When it's flaring badly, it makes me stressed and anxious as well.
I have consulted a neurologist and neurosurgeon who instructed many tests like MRI (brain, lumbar, cervical, abdomen), nerve conduction test, full blood test and ultrasound but it all came back normal. They could not find anything and conclude it's psychological though I really doubt it and sent me to see a psychiatrist. Anyway, I went ahead to consult the psychiatrist and was given some psychosomatic medications. My condition however still did not improve.
The feelings started in April'19. Somehow it subside by its own in August'19. In between there are some spikes but it's just very mild before another episode in March'20. Again after few months it subsides on its own.
Right now it's like the 3rd episode. It keeps coming back so I think the root cause is not identified and cured. I'm kind of clueless at the moment on what to do next.
Is there anyone out here with a similar experience or have some clues on my condition? I appreciate all kinds of feedbacks or suggestions like things to try, who to consult, etc.
Thanks for reading.
