Doctors have attributed this to anxiety and depression. I also have a long history of this but Zoloff and Prozac medication has helped in the past. When antidepresants did not work this time, I was diagnosed by one MD as symptoms being from arthritis in the neck and for the tingling and numbness in the hands and feet. I've had that for about 3 months and it is getting worse. My primary now thinks that is is neurological.
I have been referred to specialists in arthritis and neurology.
I am afraid to go out because I feel like I might faint. I am still on
buspar for anxiety for 2 months and a week but I think it makes me more dizzy and have cut down to 15 mgs a day from 20 and plan to stop gradually as it got worse when I stopped taking it for a few days.
My mind won't stop racing and I can't concentrate on anything. My memory is still good but I keep thinking of the past,
just turned 80 years old. I am on BP medication, cholesterol med and
Prilosec and have had numerous blood tests that are normal except for A little low on electrolytes but told I drink too much water so am cutting down. I am sick of going to doctors and I dread the tests that I may have to endure by the neurologist. I thought it was MS because I have a lot of the symptoms but I still have strength in my hands and passed the basic tests they give you in a GP's office. They can't really tell in the
few minutes they give you for the exam so are just guessing.
At the clinic I go to, they treat me like a hypochondriac because I go
so frequently whenever a new symptoms appears. It may take months
to get an appointment with the neurologist so don't know what to do for
the dizziness in the meantime if anything can be done. I doubt if arthritis is causing it as my neck has only recently started to hurt.
