Strange pains& sensations

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello, me again. I pretty much live on here even when I don't post/comment. It's my only option since I have no support system with my Anxiety&depression.

Anyway today I'm not gonna talk about ALL the weird pains I feel, just 2of themsmile

Do any of you anxiety sufferers like myself get weird burning or prickly feelings in your fingers? My fingers just feel real tender and every now n then one of them will hurt a little. When I got my big anxiety attack 5months ago some of my fingers were dead periodically lol but I got used to that.

Also does anyone get elbow pain? It's not a constant pain but it hurts when you bend/move your elbow a certain way?

      My fingers get cold n feels prickly n sometimes they hurt/go numb. Along with literally TONS of other scary body sensations that makes me think I must have at least 6 types of cancers!

      Strangely enough I've never had MS related anxiety. But I do have chronic health anxiety too. And I was just saying I too am simply existing wondering when this will end and howsad

      I'm in a new country where I'm not yet a citizen so I don't have insurance. I also can't afford to pay out of pocket so other than a doctor who told me I have very high anxiety I haven't seen any specialists.

      A month ago I gave blood though and they sent me back a result that said my cholesterol was abit high. I Googled the blood bank's website for what they test blood for. So basically if I had anything deadly they would've called, sent a letter or emailed me. I know that should make me feel abit better but when your brain is so messed up from constantly fretting it's hard for me to just relax. Sometimes I feel I'm going mad and it makes my clinical depression even worse.

      Yes the people here have made things a little easier for me.

      Ever notice how some people here post about even worse symtoms n so far nobody has been confirmed having any of the dangerous illnesses we all worry about?

      So many pain, aches, tingling, numbness, nausea etc. Yet no MS, cancer, ALS etc have been reported yet. Even though sometimes I fret that my case might be the odd fatal one, I'm still abit reasured.

    I get tingly and weird sensations. I get tinnitus or something where i hear my pulse. Anxiety shoots off adrenaline and cortisol levels go awry so it seems to mess a person up nicely. After the constant effects things can start hurting. Its a mess isnt it. Then nsaid make me so tired and nit feel well. Its a viscious little cycle till it just stops after a weeks and weeks and like goes into remission or something

      My support system stink too. Very very few people have anyone who can be that supportive or helpful. Only on tv they are like that or extremly wealthy and can afford the luxuries of massages a d prepared healthy foods and such..rela life thy get annoyed it interferes with their happiness.
