Anxiety sky high. Neurologist wants MRI

Posted , 5 users are following.

So worried. Had a horrible stressful time recently and the sole of my left foot went tingly 5 weeks ago. Saw a neurologist who has requested an MRIof the brain and spine. I'm petrified it is MS and I know that's what he is looking for. Now i am worried about this I have developed a weird to staying sensation in my pelvic bone. Could this alone stress related? I really hope so. MRI is Friday and results next Monday :-(

    At least you will find out the results fairly quickly.  I hope that it's nothing to worry about.

    He probably couldnt figure out what was wrong and yoy probably gave him some symptoms that match ms but remember since he is a specialist he has to rule out everything before telling yoy its stress. Plus ms is the second biggest phobia of people with ha and regular anxiety as it mimics alot of symptoms. I truly beleive he is just trying to rule it out since you probably have ha and have asked questions about ms so he could put your mind at ease. Just pray god hears us all i promise you will be ok

      I do have terrible health anxiety and this with all the stress I'm going through at the moment with my ex husband trying to get me to pay him money from my house because we were married that could make me and our children homeless isn't helping.

    By the way i thought i have had MS about 5 times in the last 5 years anxiety and googling symptoms will make you think that. PLEASE STOP GOOGLING SYMPTOMS it is not accurate and every symptom leads to cancer or ms.

    Like i said i have thought i had ms like 5 times before. Everytime you google your symptoms it will either be cancer or ms. When someone has HA we do not beleive our gp therefore he knows that so unfortunatly there is no way to find out if you have ms by a blood test or any other simple method.so he refers you to a specialist to run those test on you and give you comfirmation that it is not ms. Remember a dr cannot tell you that you dont have ms without running those test.hopefully and more then likely he will tell you to go see a phsycologist for anxiety therapy. Since your going thrue alot right now. Stop googling symptoms

    Obviously I can't give you a definitive answer but I would say that I have had legitimate aches, pains and sensations investigated and assessed over the last five years and everytime they can't find anything or attribute it to a maybe. I know really it's anxiety. It manifests itself in really twinges but your mind is the most powerful tool you have and it seems we have limited control over it. Stress can definetly cause all sorts of real symptoms, it's amazing how after I'm reassured they mysteriously disappear somewhat. I know it sounds silly but try to breathe through the anxious thoughts xxx

    Scan will hopefully calm you down and then you can focus on healing and enjoying your life better. Sometimes we need proof. All these weird symptoms can easily get the best of the imagination. Good luck and feel better. I am wondering if all this anxiety can make our nervous system inflammed (we have a huge nervous system running thru us) and all this happens from that but no test for that yet. Makes sense to me all the adrenaline, epinephrine and cortisol shooting through out bodies so much. Maybe we should all be in some anti inflammation diets too. Ive been thinking about that lately. Not even a health anxiety thing, just cause and effect. What do you think?

      I used to get a ripping sensation on my sole. Turned out i was b12 deficient and now i get injections. I had other symptoms/ailment  but that was one of them.

      Got to agree with that. When we are feeling like that then there has to be some effect from it. Would be strange if there wasnt. I was in court today with my ex and now its all over I am so much calmer. This morning I felt sick and could literally feel the panic inside me. It heart was going crazy and now I feel so much better. Not sure how they would test for it as every onesbbody reacts in such different ways that there are probably 100 effects caused by anxiety
