Hi, I am a 38 year old married woman with a fab family, my husband and 2 kids. I have recently been diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder. I am struggling to accept it as my sympthoms are so real. However on reading through some of the posts, I can take great relief that these aches, pains and tinglings are in fact very real to anxiety. I have tingling in my hands, feet and soreness in my back. A brief outline of my story - I had a thumb twitch last May, unfortunately googled it and Motor Neuron filled my brain. I had an MRI and a Nerve Conduction Study both normal and my thumb doesn't twitch anymore. Whilst all this was going on, I had just moved house and had been diagnosed with Endometriosis, thus limiting our chances of baby #3. I thought at the time that I was fine with everything, just glided along - but I think maybe the initial thumb twitch was a sign of underlying stress and I didn't pay attention. Now with every tingle, pain, headache, I have serious health anxiety which drives me to tears. I do get relief from crying - but it is so hard. Please tell me I am normal!!! I have had all the tests done and all fine. My Dr's say I am healthier than he. Is this normal for anxiety as I am new to this. Currently on Lexapro 20mg and Lyrica 100mg per day, only 3 weeks into it.
