    I tried to send you a reply but it went wrong.

    yes I defintely think that you should be seen by a dr at the hospital. ease try to go there sap. If in the UK you can ring 111 and they will assess you but at the end of the day the advice wil be the same.

    you mmay have a trapped nerve but it is no use speculating as a dr must examine and assess you.The dr can also allay your understandable anxiety.

    Take care

      Hello Sorry to butt in but it seems that you will not go to the hospital. Your worry that there may be something 'bad; is understandable but if you will not go and get checked out theen isn;t that just increasing your level of anxiety?

      Pease just go to emergency room. They know what to do .You may just ave a bug perhaps.

      I know but thats why because they see my history of anxiety and they rule everything out but that i rather see my doctor who is in tomorrow. But if its as serious as stated then yes i will go.

      The s are supposed to rule out any physic conditions before labelling ple with anxiety etc, tey have duty of care.

    i suppose you pinched your nerve - I've got peripheral neuropathy which developed over many years, so I don't think you got this disease.

    To fight the pain, Tramadol does help a great deal for me, but the usual pain killers like Paracetamol or Ibuprofene don't help at all.

    Hope this helps you a bit,
