About 5 months ago, I came down with a terrible cold. It took 2 weeks to get over and some antibiotics to go away completely. I was healthy and fine for 3 weeks, and then all of a sudden, I developed a lot of weird symptoms. I had tingling in my hands and feet, burning in my legs, arm weakness, sore joints, and achy muscles. I had extensive bloodwork done, and everything came back normal. After that, I started to feel a little better while making some progress, and then all of a sudden, the symptoms came back again. My doctor suggested I go to a neurologist to rule anything else out. I had a head and spine MRI that all came back normal. My doctor thinks the cold virus I had rebounded, and will eventually go away with time. I've been feeling this way for 4 months now and am getting really discouraged. I'm beginning to wonder if this was all brought on by stress, as I was overwhelmed before my cold. Then when these symtpoms showed up, I grew insanely stressed and anxious. Does it sound like something post viral or stress? Any suggestions on how to get over this? I just want to get back to my healthy, normal self.
