Really freaking out

Posted , 3 users are following.

I posted the other day but things have got worse and I'm sure I have ALS/MND. I'm getting muscle twitches all through out the day everywhere you can think of. My legs mainly but it happens in my arms behind my shoulders my buttocks my eyelids my feet and when I move my mouth to certain position my cheek twitches aswell. It looks like my muscle have got atrophy. I'm sure my tongue has shrunk as I can see more of the back of my mouth then I used to. My swallowing is quite difficult along with with my breathing feeling worse. When I inhale I get a strange sensation and when I lay down it I have to take a deep breath just once then it goes. Is there anyone that can help its getting me really down

      Lots of things: one of them is St John's as indicated by Yankeefrankie. Just try to take it under supervision. You have also to understand that not all these medications out there are habit- forming medication. They are used just to help you fighting the symptoms. The first line medication is within you. To understand how to stop worrying by educating yourself. I also recommend to try traditional Chinese medicine (acupuncture and Chinese herbs)as it is very safe. Just make sure you find a good doctor.

    Stop believing your thoughts! You are creating a mess inside you. Clearly get a nuero exam if you have not had one. Then take that knowledge and dismantle what you have created in you. Your body and mind are working tigether and have made this connection as you have believed it every step of the way. Ithas to be challenged but you will need an exam as a starting point now. Then good therapy and understanding that you have created this and its a memory and formed connection of your mind and body both agree and bully you. The body know now these symptoms and the mind tells it oh yea the als symtoms you told us about seems all good and visa versa. But clear it with an exam. You believed your thoughts sadly. The bodys language is thiught.nthe minds language is feelings. They intertwine. They validate each ither thats how it works. Memories form and patterns forms. We are human thats how we work but it wasnt meant to cause fantom illnesses it was meant to protect you from danger.  Get an exam and then find a therapist who undestands the mind body connection. You have a lot of work to do to dissmantle this.
