Apologies for posting on here, but I need some advise.
In 2004 i suffered from headaches, muscles & joint pain, weakness, skin sensations that lasted for 18 months. I saw the doctors on many occasions ant they said it was anxiety and stress. I was treated with various anti-depressants over that time and all the symptoms faded away.
10 years later in 2014 and over a period of 2 years I started getting chest pains which resulted in a few visits to A&E but each time all tests were OK and it was blamed on Anxiety. After a visit to A&E in January this year I got really stressed and I started to get tingling in my feet, burning skin sensation that would come and go and move around my body. My GP recommended therapy and after a period of time the symptoms disappeared. I could never tell if the anxiety caused the symptoms or the symptoms caused anxiety.
This September the symptoms have returned again with intermitment vibration sensation in my legs, tingling feet and sore/burning skin on my legs, arms and shoulders (mainly legs). I'm not stressed like earlier in the year. I have changed GPs and had some blood tests which came back as Vitamin D was low and inflammatory markers are high. I do currently have a cold.
I'm worried as to what could be causing all these symptoms and I'm due to have repeat blood tests next week.I feel it just can't be anxiety and I fear there is something else wrong.
