      hi kerry,its reassuring when somebody has the same symptoms,do you have them all the time?where do you experience the pins and needles?i also feel like pressure /tightness in my cheeks,i dunno which scares me most the hand or face, one doctor told me that only when i accept this is anxiety not ms will my symptoms start to ease and fade but its so hard isnt it x

      I have it daily! I get the pins and needles in my arms hands and feet and the prickly sensation everywhere! I also get twitching and jerking! The numbness and pressure in my face/head scare me a lot!! I have been diagnosed with health anxiety so I pay to much attention to my symptoms and always think it's something serious!

    Sarah ms is the most common phobia of people eith health anxiety the more you think obout it the worst it will get. Trust me i have been in your shoes and its not fun. But anxiety mimics all the same symptoms. But i bet ur eorst problem is googling symptoms.STOP GOOGLING EVERYTHING LEADS TO MS OR CANCER ONLINE

    Hi chic I'm just like you !! I love this site for knowing that I'm not alone and no matter how I deal with my health issues and smart I think I am ... As soon as I have a bad few days im a nervous wreck it's so crap to have this quality of life ,,, I'm just thank full for a loving family and partner and thankful for the good days I do have ... One lady reassured me on this site of my ever changing issues saying our body's will manifest all sorts of symptoms and different feelings it's how we react to them that matters for our brains to recognise it as dangerous ... She made so much sense !!! I hope one of us help u .... X

      I was like that in the start of this crazy ride I'm goin through but some how I've managed to start to enjoy and recognise a good day ... Don't get me wrong the bad days can last for days ... I've been having 3 bad ones so far and I'm just wondering when it will stop again for me the pains I get in my head and heart scare me the most .... It's like I'm waiting for death... But it's not like it all the time so I'm trying to train myself for the good day .... So horrible how I feel like my life is borrowed and carnt enjoy it .... But realistically I'm doin it to myself lol .... And could not even really pin point the start of it all for me ,.. But I can say when it got worse for sure !!!! If you find it hard to sleep like me I've found some real good relaxing things so feel free to message me cuz I'm not sure how the whole advertising YouTube is aloud ... Xxx smile now as you read this message and let's get you smiling more xx

      This just proves that it is anxiety, after talking about it to you earlier I now have it!! Didn't have it earlier, but I am still bloody scared of it! Why can't I just accept that it's anxiety and not feel terrified!

      ive had the twitching on and off all night,of course ive still had the numb/tingly face too,also my tingly hand has been fairly bad all thru the night,its numb /tingly but hurts a little bit too if that makes sense,can anxiety cause the pain too?

      It can sweet ... But just for your peace of mind try get to c a doctor if you can and hopefully he will help you relax to know that nothing is terribly wrong .... I'm not a doctor and would hate to b saying that nothing is wrong of it was so that's why I say maybe go the docs ... But my GP was so adiment nothin was causing mine ... I remember I went A&E the first time it happened to me and after all the normal checks he told me I had a bad migraine lol I couldn't believe it xx

      Bless ya sweet you are goin through it .... Today is a better day for me thank god !!! But it's always in the back ground .... The only comfort I got for you darling is that we all have the same kind of thing as you so with all the things you've seen the docs about that can only be a good thing ... The more you stress about it the worse and longer it's goin to last Bab ....: plz try and occupie your mind so you can start to move forward I know it's hard but I can suggest a few things if you want to xxxx
