Muscle and joint pain accompanied by a strange empty sensation

About one month ago now i had an odd pain start in my left tricep. It wasn't bad, but it concerned me enough to take my blood pressure after i started to feel a bit dizzy. My bp was at 180/106. I didn't feel that bad, but just to play it safe i went to urgent care. They ran some tests and looked me over and gave me a clean bill of health but suggested I see my gp.

My gp believes its likely something to do with a pinched nerve due to some tingling I have experienced in my hands and feet. He also agreed that i should see a few specialists, an allergist, a arthritis doctor, a gastroenterologist and a neurologist. All of which i have appointments with for the next three months.

Since the Gp visit I've suffered my first massive panic attack, had new burning pain spread into my quads and a feeling of my right foot not always moving as i would expect it to. For which my gp has given me a low grade muscle relaxers and anxiety med that i take daily. After which he believes its anxiety causing the pain and not a nerve pinch.

Has anyone any idea what might be going on? Or has anyone been subject to similar pains?

    If its a nerve that can be a good thing, because nerves are easier to solve than muscles. Massage the nerve and try an ice pack.
