My problem started back in 2008 when my wife was waiting for a major back op. Around the same time as this I developed a small infection which I was convinced was testical cancer.....(which I was given the all clear from, but during the episode I started to develop pins and needles in my forearm, and lower part of both legs, and a creeping sensation all over me from time to time and constant palpitations.
Then one day out of the blue the tiny muscles in my calf went crazy!! They settled down but never totally stopped up to this day! Went to gp whom said... You are stressed and anxious!
A couple of months ago I started to feel unwell, I visited the gp who said I was run down (1 year old son, so probably right!) had loads of blood tests that all returned fine!
In my head I had a serious illness, started to really worry and the symptoms I had back in 2008 returned, twitching muscles picked up pace again, funny vision in one eye (checked by option, all fine) pins a needle in forearm again, tingling on my back, twitching muscles in my arms and constant palpitations!
Returned to gp a few weeks ago whom again said anxiety! But to put the demon to bed (his words) sent me to a neurologist who carried out a full examination (no MRI ) and concluded anxiety plus hypervigilants.
Can all these symptoms really be brought on my worry/anxiety? I fell reassured for about a hour after I've seen the professionals but then start to think.... Maybe they've missed something
I don't understand even when I'm relaxing in the evenings not even thinking about things the symptoms persist. And, bang! There they are when I wake up !
Does anyone else experience things like this??
