      Was all good and normal up till 6 weeks ago! Then one night walking home

      My leg stopped working (drank a lot) hospital did heaps of tests, bloods, 40min nero test with hammer, pin, cotton,torch etc.

      Mri lower spine, ct scan of brain, ultrasound of hip, talked about all diseases in my family, then he asked about ms!, no ms or diseases in family! End of 4 hours in private hospital answer was maybe intoxicated! Went home and googled ms and other things he talked about! Now i have blocked dizzy head but not dizzy as in dizzy! Pins needles in toes, left calf tight, sore ankle, tight fingers and forearms both sides, popping ears (driving me crazy) and no energy! But still can work etc!

    Dan, it most likely is anxiety. The same thing happens to me especially if I'm intoxicated or hungover. I thought it was MS for the longest time but honestly it was all just a mixture of anxiety and dehydration from the alcohol. I know it's hard to believe, I still struggle to remind myself that it's anxiety instead of me dying.

    I've had this after a night out, it's what triggered my current anxiety. My leg went tight and couldn't walk on it, had a massive panic attack.

    I also get the dizzy full head feeling and ears popping, that could be to do with your ears/sinuses being blocked because I've always had problems with my ears. You could try some olive oil ear drops to see if that helps!

      Possible tmj fom what your explaining. Clogged ears can be from eustatiin tube being blocked by the overworked muscles in your jaw. Get a soft solint to sleep with if you have tmj. A dentist can sutomize one or they have some at the local pharmacy. It takes two weeks before youd know if it is working. Tmj causes blocked ears, dizziness and headaches.

    You don't say much about yourself. How old are you? What do you  for a living?  What sort of weird/strange things are happening.  Obviously you have told the doctors about these which is why they have diagnosed anxiety. Whose choice has it been to see 3 different doctors- yours?  If you were offered medication did you turn it down? Quite frankly there is no point in seeing a fourth doctor if three have come up with the same diagnosis. You have to accept that anxiety is the cause of your problems and perhaps ask for some counselling.
