I have a story to tell you, so sit back with some popcorn and enjoy! I hope you guys can help me.
So recently, maybe close to 3 weeks ago, here and there, I felt some brief, undisruptive tingling in my feet (mostly right foot), and I never thought much of it, and went about my normal life(I am only 19.) However, last Monday morning, I woke up, and I really felt the tingling on my left foot, so, being dumb, I went online and websites were telling me awful things, like having autoimmune diseases, cancer, etc. And I panicked. My heart started racing, I got super hot and sweaty, when I tried to get up I felt so unsteady, I wanted to cry, I could not focus on anything else, etc. Eventually, I calmed down a bit, but it was just still constantly on my mind. When my mom came home from work that afternoon, I explained to her what I had been feeling, and she thought maybe it was a pinched nerve (I have a bad back/neck/jaw), so we decided to set up a chiropractor appointment on that Thursday. She told me to never get on websites like WebMD again because they only scare you, and told me that there was nothing seriously wrong because she knows me like the back of her hand and would know if I was really ill. In the meantime, I could not stop thinking about it. Tuesday came, and I could only think about it. I cried, was scared, and at dinner that night, I did not feel hungry (I love food) and that scared me. I started feeling myself becoming dizzy, nauseated, and I got so worried and panicked again. I could only think about what I was feeling. Mom once again saved the day, and when I sat down with her, cried everything out, explained my feelings, she reassured me, told me she could see the worry plastered all over my head, magically, the "dizziness", "nausea" had basically gone away! Her reassurance helps me, but only for a few hours at the most. Wednesday came, and when I woke up to go to school, I got super hot again, I felt unsteady, dizzy, I was shaking and trembling, tingling in legs and my left arm, so I hurriedly got dressed, and laid down until it was time to leave. I think that was another panick attack. I felt awful. I calmed down, went to school (although I was on the verge of tears the whole time) my friends told me I was overthinking everything, making me feel sick. Now, even when I am not having a full blown panick, I particularly feel tingling in my left leg and arm (although it can be felt in all extremities from time to t
