    Why are you stopping and starting your meds? If you've suffered with anxiety then you should know there's a very good chance your symptoms are being caused by the wretched illness. I had numbness down one side of my face,I had no energy and a horrible prickly heat sensation in my legs,I also had a ton of other symptoms,and they were all caused by anxiety. Deep down you must know anxiety is the most likely cause of your discomfort,you just need convincing.

      Thanks Pablo..yea your right and I guess why I did that was because the meds were making me feel so so sick and just horrible...well all my blood tests and everything came back completely normal and I've been to several doctors. Its just so horrible and fightening....i have always had anxiety about my health just constantly worrying all the time about my health....yeah I get numbness all the time on my face for no reason and docs say its anxiety..its just so so hard to believe anxiety can cause all that
