I am going out of my mind with worry. Ive never been one to experience anxiety but i do worry over health issues.
I gave birth 12 weeks ago and was left with pain inside my bum and problems pushing to poo and sometimes feelings in other intimate areas. Had scans and blood tests etc all clear. I looked online and it said i could have pelvic floor dysfunction and the doc said this is very possible.
Over night i literally started worring more and more over the issue and gave myself awful anxiety. I was put on citalopram but made it so much worse. So i gave up on them and stated setroline. Again made it worse so stopped taking.
I have a virus about a month ago and my eye was blurry. Every now and then i still get it, a weird sensation but really blurry. Last week my mind went in to over drive again and convinced myself i had a brain tumour. I booked an eye test and had a full eye test and health check. Told the optician my fears and she said everything with optic nerve is fine and 20/20 vision.
I have been on 15mg mirtazapine for 14 days now. On saturday i started getting tingly hands and feeling dizzy. I googled it and convinced myself a brain tumour again. Then i saw something about MS and read in to it.
I have constant pins and needles in left foot, also in left hand, i keep clenching my left hand, a cold sensation in right leg, i get the odd muscle twitch in foot and arm, i get a numb feeling in face and head and my eye still goes weird. I feel i lose my train of thought when im talking and cant comcentrate on anything.
I went the doc yesterday and he said this all points to anxiety and wont send me for any tests or scans. He upped my Mirtazapine to 30mg and referred me for CBT. I am now in constant worry and i feel MS is in my head constantly. I cant sleep and i feel so down. I have 2 young children to look after and its ruining my time with them as im constantly having this ms thought.
Please someone help....do you feel the same as me? I think to myself maybe it is just anxiety but surely it cant do all this? Then im sure its MS but think surely i wouldnt have had all these symptoms in 1 go.
