I'm new to the forum and have had some issues for the last few years but it's starting to really affect my health now and I'm wondering if it's anxiety?
I'll keep it brief. Over the last 18 months I've had skin issues and diagnosed all sorts by doctors including
Vitiligo - I was devastated
It goes away and then comes back and now I'm left with half my face red and my nose and keep getting spots in the same places frequently..
If that wasn't bad enough I'm getting an itchy scalp, dandruff all the time and now my hair is rapidly falling out
I'm trying to stay positive but I'm starting to have episodes of swaying which I had about 6 months ago but now they are back with a vengeance.. There doesn't seem to be a pattern as it happens in a supermarket, when I'm walking to my van sometimes, in my kitchen and living room at home, when I'm stood talking to someone and other occasions.
Another thing that is happening is my strength is rapidly declining in my hands, I'm a tradesman and I use my hands a lot. I'm walking in the morning with really stiff hands and struggle to open my eyes. My job is being affected as not only am I struggling with my duties I'm also swaying sometimes up a set of ladders.
I really don't know what's happening to me. I'm in a position in life where I've got nothing to worry about and have a nicer house than I imagined I would at my age and a decent job.. I just don't know if a mixture of everything that's happened has created a mass of anxiety and I can no longer be dealing with doctors as I'm convinced they just want you out the door.
Anyone had a similar experience?
Thanks in advance
